Poor old Pajero is desperately in need of a modern diesel engine and transmission.

It is staggering that Mitsubishi have neglected the drivetrain for so long.

Why does it need a new modern engine, when people consistently get 220,000 plus kms with no problems? I’ll gladly have the so called “old” engine and gearbox, than a modern engine that have problems.

Hi Brad, I couldn’t agree more. And it’s precisely the reason we asked Mitsu for a long-termer Pajero… And having put nearly 2000km on it in the last week or so, I’ve got nothing but praise for the engine and gearbox. The engine is plenty strong enough and the gearbox (with only five speeds) is smoother and quicker than some eight-speed boxes (I’m looking at your gearbox, Jeep Cherokee).
