Pajero upgrade

Tue Aug 28, 2018 6:30 pm

Hi all.
I own a Pajero 3.5 v6 1998 which after long consideration sadly to let go off.
I never owned a diesel in my entire vehicle career. So my plan is to go for an upgrade, but not sure if the vehicle I have my eye on is a good move. I would really appreciate all the advice on this purchase.

A 2012 Mitsubishi pajero 3.2 Di-Dc GLS SWB A/T

Mileage: 151000km
Purchase price: 310k
The vehicle is basically in mint condition but the mileage is a concern?
Any advise on the diesel Paj is highly appreciated.
Kind Regards.

Why is the mileage a concern? That’s very low mileage for a 3.2. Go for it but make sure all the services were done, and were done on time. Then you should be fine for another 150,000km easily.

Thank you very much for the input and advise Kurt. I did not detail enough on the car in order for better clarity
Vehicle comes with FSH.
I just thought the mileage is high. On the flip side I should not compare Petrol mileage with Diesel.
Once again thank you.

that mileage is low.
I bought our Gen 3 2002 model mint condition in 2011 with 150000km
7 years later is on 254000, I dont for see any problems
Check the services etc then all should be well

My 2006 Pajero GLX just ticked over 401 000km. Engine, Gearbox and drive trane has never been opened. The only thing we have replaced so far is a timing chain guide, two solenoids controling the front diff 4x4 selection and cleaned the intake manifold. I stick to the service schedule and she has never let me down.
