2018 Mitsubishi Pajero NX GLX 3.2 turbo diesel from Australia and New Zealand
A good vehicle to drive, and if the problems were fixed, I would rate it great
I have just purchased a "dealer demo" Pajero, as I did with my previous car, a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander. I had a very good run with the Outlander and was keen to upgrade to the Pajero. My work ute is also a 2016 Mitsubishi Triton, of which I have had 2 before. Both my utes have been base models and the Outlander was middle of the road.
So being very familiar with the Mitsubishi Motor Company, I feel I need to write a review about the Pajero.
What a wonderful vehicle to drive and ride in, but unfortunately Mitsubishi has badly missed the mark on a few smaller "creature comforts or features".
The first and biggest mistake they have made is the navigation system by relying on your mobile phone to navigate. All very well until you don't have mobile service (which is a lot of the country I travel in), then thank goodness I still have a Garmin with a lot of my information still in it. The next gripe I have about this is that you have to physically connect your phone every time. Then my wife tried to connect her phone and found out the phone was "too old' but still operates fine. Perhaps Mitsubishi could supply her with a new suitable phone. My suggestion to Mitsubishi would be to develop a chip you could plug into a USB with maps in it.
The other 2 things are a rest step for your left foot while driving, which has been in all my previous Mitsubishi vehicles.
The last thing is that the headlights should turn off automatically when you open the door. Once again a feature all the previous Mitsubishi's had.
All in all, a very nice car, but PLEASE remember if it ain't broke don't fix it or alter it, as the navigation system in the Outlander never let us down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
