No car, possibly no machine, is better made
Astonishingly reliable. Much newer Mercs and BMWs just don't compare in reliability. These are generally constructed like heavy duty machinery - they genuinely last an entire lifetime.
For a nearly 3 tonne 1998 machine, amazing acceleration - the 24v V6 shames an awful lot of performance cars. Very good MPG for the weight of the car, for the petrol engine, as good as the diesel Shogun. Handling superb because of multilink suspension.
I paid £1200 for this 4x4 - it has never, never, not once, failed in any way, despite some 20,000 miles. Over a lifetime's motoring I've owned over 50 different makes of vehicle - was not even aware that a car can be manufactured to this high a standard so that it never fails - aeroplanes are probably not made or assembled with such exacting precision. Bravo Mitsubishi - how do you make any money in aftersales and replacement parts???
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
