2001 Mitsubishi L200 GLS 4X4 doublecab 2.5 turbo diesel
Still - the best in it's category!
This is a follow-up report to my previous one, done at 98000 Km. Since then I've totaled 170,000 Km - and still going. The only thing replaced since, was a steering tie rod (pitman) at 150,000 Km. Everything else works perfectly.
My fuel consumption has deteriorated a bit. I average only about 8.6 Km/liter now. The garage hasn't been able to locate the exact cause.
I've replaced the original Bridgestones at 140,000 with a better quality Bridgestone that has a more aggressive tread for off-road, but is not noisier than the previous set.
I enjoy this truck very much. It is a dependable daily driver that can be taken to the toughest off-road terrain.
When owning such a car, one must realize that it is not a passenger car, and therefore should not be judged by the same standards.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The first report I've written can be found under: Mitsubishi - pickup.
(I would suggest to the admin to unify these two categories since they refer to the same vehicle)

I had L200 diesel and L200 fuel
L200 fuel is great car I loved it. Max speed 160 km/h good maneuvers capabilities. Simple and reliable. I had some problems during 5 years, changed: clutch, water pomp, cleaned stone from radiator, but the car worked really hard) (It fuel thirsty car)
The diesel L200 was much less pleasant to drive and had some problems with electrical system from the beginning.
Even the car look the same the diesel and fuel L200 are 2 different cars.
