The Mistubishi Pajero represents an era of SUV production that is nearly dead. Rugged, turbodiesel rigs that can take you anywhere have all but been replaced by tall, FWD soft-roaders. This 1995 two-door model is finished in a stately Summit White, the body is in good shape other than some minor dings, scuffs, and chips associated with normal use. OEM rainguards, helo LED headlamps, and oversized fogs emphasize the tough-guy nature of this truck. The chassis has logged a mere 45K verified miles, making this one of the lowest mileage examples we have ever imported! Rocking some decent performance and cosmetic upgrades, this legally imported truck is fresh off a recent service and read-to-roll.
The interior is in good nick and it was obviously cared for back home in Japan. The '95 and newer models get a digital climate system with a trick LCD display. Another improvement for this model is the SRS driver-side airbag, which was uncommon for SUVs of this era. The dash is in good shape and lacks any significant imperfections such as cracks or distortion. An offroad-themed gauge suite sits atop it and the passenger benefits from a grab handle mounted to the dash directly atop the glovebox area should your ride get a little wild. The seats are upholstered in a textured taupe cloth. They are clean and soft to the touch, lacking any noteworthy imperfections such as rips, holes, or tears. The front ones have integrated lumbar support and are comfy on long drives. The headliner and carpet are in good shape and the door cards still look good as well. Power mirrors, locks, and windows are all standard and work as they should. If you have a bunch of cargo to transport the rear door is side-hinged to provide a wide loading area. The rear sears and integrated cupholder can all for forward to accommodate more items to stow
Mechanically, these rigs are simple, reliable, and easy to work on. Mitsubishi's trucks carry the same track record of reliability that Toyota's do but can be purchased at a fraction of the price. The formula is basic, a 2.8L 4M40 four-banger powers the little Pajero. Startup is prompt and ignition is aided by two new 12V batteries installed by our techs. Thanks to a new oil and filter service she runs nicely and won't require scheduled service for another 3,000 miles. The diesel is mated to an automatic gearbox that shifts appropriately and is geared for our higher interstate speeds. Acceleration is acceptable and the 2.8L out accelerates the 2.5L it replaced pretty handily. The selective four-wheel-drive system has a locking center differential and 4WD low and high. For the best fuel economy, we naturally recommend driving in 2WD. A neat fact about the system is that it can be utilized while the Mitsubishi is driving at speeds up to 62MPH. The suspension takes small and large bumps with ease and the two-door models can handle more aggressive approach and departure angles. The power steering is light and easy to articulate and the brakes feel confident. The steel wheels are all wrapped in new all-terrain Falkens at all four corners which will provide premium grip and should last for years to come. Our techs even installed a new Falken on the spare to complete the list of reconditing items.
