WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: MITSUBISHI PAJERO (2006 ONWARDS)

Thanks to a lack of development budget, Mitsubishi really stretched the lifespan of the Pajero off-roader.

The result was a vehicle that was pretty well resolved by 2006 and has soldiered on for more than a decade.

Some diesel-engined Pajeros suffered failed timing chains as the tensioners failed to control the chain's movement.

Other diesel engine problems include the usual warning about failed fuel injectors and a build-up of soot in the intake system that can cause all sorts of performance losses and increased fuel consumption.

A valve associated with the diesel injection pump could also be damaged by dirty diesel fuel (which is more common than you might think). A replacement valve was the only fix.

Since the Pajero was so capable off-road, we'd also take a close look at the condition of the underbody to determine whether the vehicle has been abused in the bush.

This model Pajero was also caught up in the Takata airbag recall.
