A good vehicle to own


Power steering oil developed a leak. Was repaired, but still has to be topped up every now and then.

Alternator nuts have to be tightened often.

Frequent oil top ups.

Steering is a bit dodgy.

General Comments:

She is an overall good vehicle.

Stylish rugged good looks.

Can be proudly driven anywhere, from thick jungles to 5 star hotels.

Comfortable, roomy and pleasant interior.

Great looking chrome alloys (original).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't have a comment as such, but would appreciate some advice. I am a proud owner of a 1990 Pajero 4D - 56 Automatic. I am having a perennial problem with the flywheel breaking/snapping around the nuts almost every 1-1.5 months. The effect is obviously terrible on running costs. Can anyone help???
