P Is For Pajero

A-Z Challenge 2012

P is for Pajero

Now not all words translate well! Pajero for instance if your Spanish translates to "Wanker"! Who said the Japanese had no sense of humour!

We bought a Mitsubishi Pajero (Shogun here in the UK) 2.8 litre diesel long wheel base to help out with the towing after we got rid our our Fiat 500.

I've got to say that pound for pound you cannot get better for your money!

It's a few years old, but the high level of spec is hard to beat on a modern car, electric fold in mirrors, climate control not only that but it has a seperate controller for the rear passengers!

It has 7 seats, the interior is in tip top condition as is the body work, and best of all has full service history from a Mitsubishi dealership!

Ours also has the winter pack fitted, so has a diesel fuel pre-heater, a 2" lift on the suspension and thicker insulation all round in the panels as it was designed for the mountainous regions of Japan. 

A bit thirsty on juice, but if I'd wanted economical I would of stuck with the 500! Towing is a dream, you don't even notice that our caravan is on the back, and ours is a big van!

So if you are in the market for a 4x4 and you don't want to spend a great deal of money, then look no further than a Pajero.

Till later................

  1. I was so certain this was going to be about the wild cat of the same name. You didn't even mention this meaning! The Gato Pajero is actually what I used for the letter "P" but I used its english name, Pampas cat.
