1987 Mitsubishi Pajero Estate Van 2.5 NA diesel from Philippines
It's practical and has great value
Handbrake cable replaced.
Rebuilt radiator twice.
Chassis got cracked.
Starter motor bearings replaced.
General wiring problems.
It's a great car. It's relatively economical. I think I can get 8-12km/liter.
It can pull trailers (though since it isn't turbocharged, it has a difficulty climbing hills at full loads). 4x4 system is rugged; it has never gone wrong or stuck at the farm.
It's reasonably comfortable thanks to independent front suspension. However the rear wheels are still leaf springs, so it's not as comfortable as new cars.
The cabin is very spacious.
The engine is tough and parts are cheap. It can handle veggie oil and dirty fuel without problem or modification.
It looks pretty, so everyone gets a smile on their face whenever they see it.
The car is VERY slow. The fastest I ever took it was 110kph. The engine is underpowered.
The body has become loose over time and so it rattles when one hits bumps. Brakes are small and weak. It's no racing car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
