    Mid Size Mid price Diesel 4X4

    Just starting to look at something to replace the Xtrail nice suv and worked well in Aussie but want something for the riverbeds and NZ hunting, would prefer a diesel, low ks (under 80.000km) and under 30K looking at the Mitsi Challenger and the Jeep Cherokee, needs to have good road manners as well, any other mid size trucks to look at?

    Have an option on a 2010 SWB Pajero 3litre petrol with only 9000k's anything dramatically wrong with them? I took my brothers old model (1994)up to McCauley hut with no problems, just don't want to spend $30k on a pile of junk.

    Nor West be careful when considering a Jeep. I think they are great but fuck they are expensive if something goes wrong.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    But in Spain they're rebadged as a Montero or "Mountain Warrior"

    Among my mates, I know of more Toyota's shitting themselves than Mitsi's!

    Between me and the olds, we have owned about 10 pajeros, all done 250+kms, only one had issues and it was my last one which got a dose of dirty fuel which meant I needed to replace inline filters and flush the system a few times. Like any vehicle, with good maintenance they should do you well.

    How many times did they win the Paris/Dakar rally? Like 15 times, 7 in a row, and 19 times in the top 3. Not a bad record if you ask me.

    They were an "evo" version of the standard version. I had a 98 evo pajero for a bit, just a standard 3.5V6 but with a few factory mods to increase KW's. Went like a cut cat for a "truck" though

    The newer pajeros are fine, the challengers have the most problems.

    Each car has its pro's and cons though
