1995 Mitsubishi Pajero
The second-generation Pajero is a fiercely capable 4WD SUV, and an outstanding bargain for anyone looking for a turn-key off-road warrior on a budget. This 1995 Mitsubishi Pajero sports a steadfast turbo diesel powerplant, room for seven, and is offered with an outstanding 57k verified/documented miles. Finished in an appropriate one-off Sandstorm Tan exterior, this Mitsu presents nicely and even sports the highly desirable high roof from the factory. Apart from some normal paint chips, dings, and other imperfections on the bodywork, this Pajero is quite the looker. Complimented by a sexy set of 3-piece Volk GTC wheels including the matching spare out back, the styling is sure to turn plenty of heads from enthusiasts and commoners alike. Rugged, reliable, and ready to roll, this Pajero is a snazzy SUV and a true Japanese Classic in every essence of the term.
The cabin has more than enough room for your on and off-road activities and is finished in a soft, patterned grey cloth. The dash shows well, with no signs of cracking or sun fading, and the seats are free of any unwanted rips, tears, or bolster wear. The digital automatic climate control is fully functional, and rear passengers even get their own dedicated controls to command the temperature of the cabin as they see fit. A/C blows cold and heat is hot for when this Pajero inevitably goes on a snowy excursion. OEM equipment enthusiasts will certainly enjoy the trio of a factory CD, cassette, and DVD player with navigation, although the latter is more of a novelty on US roads. Uncommonly seen functioning, the factory altimeter/clinometer still works as well! A slew of power amenities help keep the driver and all passengers comfortable throughout day-to-day activities, and power windows, power-folding mirrors, and even an OEM "Cleanaire" air purifier work without a hitch. The driver also benefits from the adjustable lumbar support, and middle-row passengers can recline the rear bench with ease. Aside from some light sagging and punctures in the rear of the headliner, this interior is hard to complain about and should serve the next driver well.
Mitsubishi has produced a number of trusty turbo diesel engines over the years and this 2.8l 4M40 is no different. Mated to a smooth shifting automatic transmission and Super Select 4WD transfercase, this combination can handle daily duty or weekend trips to the trails with no issue. A fresh oil and filter service from our trained technicians keeps this diesel 4 banger running in tip top shape and the engine chugs to life care of two new 12v batteries. Idling is confident thanks to a new fuel filter, fuel lines, and replacement of the main seal on the injection pump. The transfer case is easy to operate and comes equipped with low gear selection to quickly escape any sticky situations. The suspension feels predictable and confident on pavement and loose surfaces and is quite comfortable while cruising at highway speeds. The switchgear is easy to read, save for a nonfunctioning tachometer, however, the speedo, temperature, and fuel gauges all display accurately. Replaced rear sway bar links give the drivetrain a light refresh, and 5 new Falken tires keep this Mitsubishi quiet and ready for tens of thousands of miles of adventure!
