Fuel consumption average over 58,000 kms is 9.7 litres/100 km. I have done a small amount of towing a 6 X 4 trailers. Best fule consumption at or below 2000rpm or about 80 to 100 kmph. At first, I found the drivers seat too soft when going into corners. I have installed a pre-filter for the fuel. Water in the fuel can be a problem out back and it is extremely expensive to fix.
I agree with others re the driving over corrugations. Require an upgrade to suspension. I have had a problem with the air conditioning or heating. In the middle of winter...
, the air coming out of the vents can be cold when it is cold in the cabin after some time driving with the thermostat set at 22. I have the 2016 NX just a month prior to DPF. I had the choice of either. Price was $47,000. They had reduced the priced about $6k overnight, Great driving on the blacktop pretty good on dirt roads. I run 35psi in BFG tyres which may explain the rougher road feel. My records show the increase in fuel consumption with the BFG tyres is about 2% more than the original tyres but that could be a driving habit rather than the chunkier tyre profile. Sounds system is below par. I need either a completely new system or at least an upgrade of speakers and a and amplifier. I am a bit spoilt with my 10-year-old diesel BMW convertible sound system.

great touring 4x4
i spend alot of time touring in the mountains, i have owned a gq patrol and an 80 series cruiser both of which are great 4x4s but not super comfy on the road, the pajero is the best of both worlds good in the bush great on the road .have travelled 190,000ks in it now trouble free .
I would say an amazing car!
Our family car growing up was a pajero and I decided when I grow up I'll get one. I'm not 100% happy with my choice but I'm not far from it there are some issues with the car but nothing that will cause trouble on driving the car and to get you to places. Its reliable and pretty.
Great car, great value
Pajero wasnt on my radar when I was on the market. I tested drive Pajero sports (exceed), Prado(vx), Everest(3.2 sports) and Pajero(gls). My logical reasons to choose are: Budget, performance and cost of ownership. My emotional reasons to choose are appearance of the car and feeling while driving( I am the driver).
Budget: as low as possible since there is no free lunch. My shopping list never ends, I have planned kayak, possible a boat later on for fishing. Pajero and Pajero sports are better than the other two. Pajero gls was asking 55k while...
Another example of ignorance in design
Mitsubishi pajero is a great car however the seatbelt clips have a sharp edge where the strap slides through. This provides a point of failure causing belts to tear in half

Next best thing to a Landrover series 2 discovery and good value for money,Same fuel economy and very quiet'. Only down side is it could have done with a nice V6 diesel engine as an option, also a CD player would have been a good idea.
Best Car Ive ever had!
Commuting every day about 30 k's each way, towing a caravan a couple of times a year, serviced as per the owners manual and just really enjoy driving it around
Great car one problem the front seat just don't suit me..
Great car in all aspects except the front seats! I have a 2017 model but after some long drives on and off road, I have found the seats to be uncomfortable. It might just be me, I'm not a large man at 177cm tall and 85kg. It seems like sitting up on a chair not in a car seat, if the seat could be lowered it might work.

Had vehicle for ages,towing a caravan is good,19lts/100km average consumption,and10/11lts/100km around town.they don't like corrugated roads dash and doors shake and rattle,just did the birdsville track,plenty highway,and the great central road.nothing broken so that's a bonus,was towing a 19ft c van.Had to have a wheel alignment though,when I got home.
Excellent off road...with 2" lift and BFG tyres
Have done 100000k's in it now. Done a lot of sand off road and been in the high country a few times. Tows our caravan around very well. Never had an issue.
Only 1 gripe... Mitsubishi service is woeful. Always had Toyota's up till now, and i can tell you this is something Mitsubishi really need to work on. Get any mechanic but Mitsubishi to service your car.
Great car, Great value

A Great all Round Vehicle. I have now had three
I have had
three Pajero's and not one has failed. A few flat tyres, broken windscreen and a blown shock absorber on the NT RX Diesel
The cars have been used for work and since retiring for touring both on and off road with much of the off road in Northern Australia
The cars have followed the service schedules but with the diesel I tend to change the engine oil and filters more frequently, especially after a long hard run. Apart from the odd occasion I have used the same mechanic for 20 years and as he also owns a Pajero I have had no worries with him. If the brake pads need changing he rings me, if the injectors are up for service he rings me> All up I am considering a new Pajero but await 2020 to see what is on offer

70k fault free klm’s
I bought my NX in 2016 after test driving every other competitor in the market. To be honest, the Pajero wasn’t even on my radar but we sort of fell into it. The thing that really sold it to us was the incredible visibility from inside and the total ease of driving.
We’ve had the car for 70k Kim now and apart from regular (more than the handbook recommends), servicing we’ve had nil unscheduled costs.
We tow a Cub camper (about 1300kg) regularly and tour around as well as it being our regular drive.
The Pajero tows really well and returns hig...

Sorry customer it's up to our standards.
Further to myself adding to the existing list of complaints about poor service and rickety parts on this vehicle purchased new,I can also confirm like other customers have mentioned:-
1)The paint is in deed very poor quality and seems to scratch worryingly very easily,almost like I need to pay for a additional paint job by a third party.
2)Many parts like internal light covers seem to just fall off and this is with light driving on flat tarmac roads
3)Front seats click and move from side to side-Dangerous,very stressful.
4)Radio very fuzzy wit...

pajero needing a brake disk replaced at 26,000 kms warranty declined ?
I have a 2015 Pajero which up to now has been trouble free. Upon being serviced at 26000 kms the mechanic noted on his invoice that the front offside brake disk needed replacing urgently. I took the car to the local Mitsubishi outlet who took photos of the damage and sent them off to Mitsubishi Aust for their opinion. After numerous pieces of correspondence between Mitsubishi Aust and myself they have declined to offer any form of compensation "because of the environment that the car has been operated in". Needless to say I wrote back to them s...tating that it is not possible that one brake disk was destroyed and the other three brake disks to be in perfect order regardless of where the car is used. It has never been off road or on a beach. At this point in time Mitsubishi Aust have chosen to ignore my correspondence which is plain common sense. I certainly am not impressed with Mitsubishi Australia attitude.

Compass configuration error with
Hi, I was looking for any blown fuses as air con is not working. Now I have an configuring error and closing in 7secs. where the compass is in the dash and low power in the ignition lights in dash and getting dimmer, also the compass isn't lighting up now at all. Any ideas?????????
Vehicle is generally used for the city, but not for the daily commute. It is an excellent vehicle but I would strongly advise anyone contemplating significant corrugation driving to buy something else. The ride is extremely rough and the dash shakes violently on corrugations. It appears not all vehicles suffer from this, but there is no apparent solution. I have spoken with owners on touring trips, and aftermarket suspension doesn't solve these problems. I think the Savannah Way experience speaks volumes - you will see very few Gen IV Pajeros o...n the likes of the Gibb River Road, as owners have learnt to shy away from such badly corrugated roads. Only newbies such as myself try it, and we learn quickly that such places aren't its natural habitat. An excellent vehicle in other respects, but don't buy it for touring corrugated roads..
Do even bother with the warranty claims
I would never ever going to buy a Mitsubishi car! All this warranty and reliability promises are nothing but false statement. The company does not even consider basic faults and force the customers to pay extra to sort out the issue! I have a Pajero 2017 model. Went shopping last week. So obviously had to open the boot door to leave the groceries at the back. The door was not on the “locked” position as there were only couple of bags but I had the door fully open for seconds. Then I tried to close the door and it was jammed. I spent like 30min ...to try to close the door but couldn’t. So had to use some force to close it and then the door lock broke!! Now Chadstone mitsubishi and even Mitsubishi Australia says since I have used force to close the door, I cannot claim this fault under the warranty! I should I have called road side assist to come over and close the door for me!! Okay, lesson learned now! Goodbye Mitsubishi!

Questions & Answers
Hi. I have some issues with my Pajero 3.5 2011. There's noise while launching the car. The noise is not permanent. I hear it some days while don't hear it some days at all. First i thought there was something with the transfer box which was checked afterwards to be ok. I'm really worried about the noise coming from the rear right side of the car. It sounds like a little stone stuck between the wheel and support disc. I've got the car tested at the service and was told that the car was ok despite the master also heard the noise while test driving the car. Service still insists on the opinion that there cannot be a serious problem even if there's any. Please advise and share your relevant experience. Thank you
Will be removing the head for the third time in 18months have reoccurring problem with oil film in water bottle and the radiator cap . No water in the oil.that i can see.
