Summary:

I will restore it to the best of my abilities

Faults:

The elbow fitting at the engine, from the radiator, corroded causing leakage of water. Considering that it's a 12 year old vehicle, not bad.

4WD indicator light not working.

Antenna motor not working.

Power side mirror not working.

Seat wear starting to show.

Small body paint scratches.

A few more minor aesthetic problems that are either broken or missing.

General Comments:

The car was bought third hand and has been a company utility vehicle for a while. Putting in the hammering it went through before I got it, it performs superbly.

Performance-wise, the vehicle is top-notch.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've got a 1989 Pajero that sat for 10 years. I'm also going to restore mine.
