Hi Guys, I have a 2007 3.2did GLX Pajero, 490000 km on the clock, no issues ever, just changed normal things, brake pads, shocks ect. Engine never opened, I blocked off EGR, do all the services myself, never added a drop off oil between services, still running perfectly, changed one wheel bearing at the rear end, one engine mount was cracked. I drive her ±10 000 km/ month as I travel a lot for my business, just love my car and will drive her until she falls apart. Whenever that might be........

Hi, Have a 2007 3.2 LWB GLS with 242.000 km..
Bought it with 230.000km in immaculate condition (inside/outside/driv.ing etc).
Previous owner did following beginning of 2019: Rear shock and bushes , Front tie rod ends , top and boittom ball joints, steering rod ends and all bushes on front suspension replaced.
I did in August: Front propshaft "repaired" and balanced (play), Left rear wheel: Joint kit axle shaft replaced (new ex Mitsu) and Hubassembly replaced (new ex Mitsu) : Reason : Rust eating away at splines..
Otherwise: engine purrs and purrs and purrs.... I only use Fully synthetic engine oil --like on my previous 3.2 SWB GLS 2005--- and also had a Turboprotect unit fitted recently.

(ZORRO) 2013 3.2 DiD GLS LWB
Currently on 242 000
Everything still original
Done normal services every time on time
Blanked off EGR and removed cat around 120 000km service

Avg fuel consumption (Last 148 000 km) 9.8km/l including towing caravan, trailers etc.
I only use Michellin tires, first set got 166 000km (bought it with it), changed it because of age. Current set (LTX Force) seem to be wearing at around 19 425km per 1mm thread, which should give good life.
Brake pads: Currently front on 69 882km, rear 61 088km and have some life still left (Was surprised as I tried Safeline this round) Brembo did not last well, OEM pads did fairly well.
Fuel brand: BP gives an average of 10.32km/l over 123 re-fuels, Total gives next best at 9.91km/l
Overall, including insurance, tires, maintenance, financing, etc it costs me R 4.20 per km.

Best car I ever owned and enjoy it every day I use it.

Hi Eddie
Yes, keep Zorro because it will appear that Mitsubishi plans to discontinue the Pajero next year for good......
