I guess Mitsubishi Nativa is changing its model in 2008; that's why they have reduced its price in Dubai. But at this price there is no 4WD available, How's the Nativa compared to a Hyundai Tucson 2.7lt? Any comment plz!
I have been driving a new Nativa GLS. Consumption has been 13 to 14 lt/100km - all on freeway driving and not exceeding 125km/hr. The acceleration is pathetic and I have had to drop back when trying to overtake on the freeway because I end up obstructing the traffic.
I have been driving a Nativa from 2004 October. I am quite satisfied; a good vehicle for the price. Until today, I have not faced any problems with it. I just do the routine maintenance with the dealer.
I am an owner of Nativa GLS 2007,and I am really enjoying life with it. I am really happy with the robustness and the performance of it.
I've been driving 2006 Nativa for more than a year.
First problem was the A/C compressor, but still under warranty, was replaced and it's good.
Everything seems OK, drove it upto 180kph with NO problem, been bumped on the fenders and side, but with only minor scratches. The body is more sturdy than the Fortuner and Prado.
Over ll OK. Got what I paid for.
I am driving Nativa 2008 model for the last five months, it is quite good vehicle. Spacious. Initial speed little bit slow but safer. Lesser Price compared with other vehicles. Drive at speed of 120 kmph or more it is quite smooth. I feel comfortable with this vehicle. They dropped this model for 2009 and introduced another model Pajero Sport.
Back end spins round at the slightest patch of water, no acceleration at all, uncomfortable on long journeys, handles like a steamroller on an ice rink, no good in the sand, proof that you get what you pay for I guess..!!
I have being using my Nativa GLS for six months, (bought 2nd hand) 2008 model. After buying, I came to know its meters can be put off. So we are cheated. More over, if we go to dealer, they ask double the price as from private owners.
I use to go for a long drive with family. Some times at 120km/hr, in few seconds my jeep starts jerking. More over it never gave me a good pickup whenever I need to escape from traffic jams.
I have Nativa GLS 2008 model full option.
Yes that's right, it’s not really comfortable on the road compared to a SEDAN :D.
But it has very good off-road performance.
We used to go camping and dune bashing in Qatar with this babe. I never got any problem in sand dunes, even in the extreme sand dune.
It has good high clearance and perfect weight, like the old Nissan Pathfinder.
When you engage 4WD, you will know this car will take you everywhere.
I bought Nativa MID RANGE model in 2008, and so far I had no mechanical problems, Yet the vehicle is noisy at high speeds on motorways, the ride is a little uncomfortable, options are spartan, vibration can be felt at times at high speed, but it is true what has been said by others, you get what you pay for, and this is a true 4X4, and I wanted a thoroughbred for the price of a family vehicle. When you can't afford the Land Cruisers, don't blame the car..
I have the Nativa GLS 3 Litre 2008.
This is the model before the Pajero Sport came out.
The Nativa is a nice looking 4x4, and is just a different shell on the Mitsubishi L200 pick-up truck.
A work horse of a vehicle.
You will not get fast acceleration out of this car, but that's not the idea. It's an entry level 4x4 made by a reliable company. You will get a solid car.
Mitsubishi are a good company, and if you service the car when it should be done, then no worries.
My Nativa came with a 6 year warranty. Anything goes wrong, the agent fixes it for free.
Though not a smooth drive on the freeway, for it's price, it's a decent car.
