Thanks for posting the ownership experience. The pictures are amazing. I know you must be having very valid reasons to let that beauty go.

Pajero was my fantasy when I was a kid. So it will always be very special to me.

I was wondering how you big is your parking space to accomodate a Pajero, i20 and Spark.

I like your honesty and willingness for friendly debate that is apparent in your posts, especially the engine oil thread.

@PW- The parking space is big enough for three cars, not four! Which is my current problem, because, as I had suspected it would, the Pajero deal fell through, and the Gypsy is on its way to Pune. Which leaves me in a bit of a jam.
So while I solve that one, I will probably lend the i 20 to someone in the family to use. Who has their own house!

New glitch surfaced on the Paj, on close to full lock turns and at slow speeds, the brake pedal stiffens at times and makes a trrrrrrr noise, before going back to normal on its own. The service advisor insists that this is a normal ABS sign on all cars. Since this happens at parking and traffic speeds, I cannot see how ABS can kick in at these. He had someone put in the error code checker on the car that returned a no fault in ABS message.
Does any other Pajero owner have any idea about this?

Sad to hear that you let go of your pajero. My dream vehicle since my school days. Mitsubushi is wasting its time and resources in India by riding piggy back on HM. Why cannot it come alone, study the indian market and launch products at sensible prices. It has the products to rock the indian market, EVO, Montero, Pajero, Latest Lancer and more. My dad's friend lancer clocked closed to 1.5 L Kms without any glitches.

If Mitusubhi can locally produce the current Pajero with 12 to 15 Lakh price range, it can easily sell like hot cakes, Even the Montero priced at 25 ~ 30 Lakhs will sell. There is a huge suv market between 20 lakhs and 50 lakhs price range. Maybe mitsubishi should learn lessons from honda / toyota about research and marketing products in india.

Saywer:

Just to clarify your comment in the Fortuner test drive thread that Pajero is the largest selling vehicle in it's class. This is not true. The Endy which is in many ways inferior to the Pajero except for a Brilliant engine sells about 60% more than the Pajero 2.8.
Jan - Aug Sales: Pajero 754. Endy 1221.

I was referring to the June/July month numbers where the Paj is running at almost thrice the Endy sales. And the same ratio continued in August. The Endy must have have fallen off a cliff in recent times. Now of course, with the Fortuner, both will take a deep dive, I guess.

Let's see what the pricing looks like. That will tell us how Toyota looks at it, in terms of positioning. Not much longer to wait!

So Sawyer, our friend, never really told us how much he sold the Paj for!!



I have one too, the same as his, with the only difference being that mine is dark blue. Its 2 and a half years old now, and no glitches whatsoever—except the same one Sawyer's had! The alignment, which got fixed after the shims were put in. It's done 35K kms so far, and goes like a dream...

Sorry about the late post, but came across this thread only today.

Nice, nice one by Sawyer. Thanks.

Dear Mr. Sawyer, I know this is 2 years old, but did you finally sell your Pajero? I am in Pune and looking for a well cared for Pajero so was just wondering if by any chance you still had it?
