    Just food for thought really.
    When you don't test drive a vehicle you are buying, then it becomes a gamble really, even if your previous many buys resulted in you being presumably happy. Does not matter what knowledgeable people on this forum or whoever recommends what.
    Not every car is for everyone.
    I am curious to know, why do you never test drive?

    I'm quite curious about this too, especially being an 8 year old vehicle.

    This reminds me of ASPW's Mahindra review where the wheel comes off the Scorpio. Imagine if it were this bad how many Scorpio we would have seen by now due to wheels coming off!

    The vehicle in question was test driven by someone I trust and there is nothing wrong woth it mechanically etc. I'm just giving my experience with a Pajero.

    Not test driving vehicles. We'll that's me. I buy something because of an itch to experience it. I don't analyze a purchase either or buy something planning to keep it for 5 years etc.

    No I was actually talking about the post pjf110 made where he compared his pajero to a Jimny, a Defender 90 and a "Jeep" (I assumed he was specifically talking about a Wrangler, but that is an assumption).

    On a side note, the full size Paj has always (well for a long time) had the "selling point" of being independently suspended all round, the Paj sport has a live rear as it is bakkie based (as far as I know). This to my mind should give it excellent road manners (the independent all round setup), but it doesn't quite seem to translate.

    Basically, the OP ordered a T-bone with chips and onion rings washed down with a Windhoek Draught but expected fillet mignon with gnocchi Gorgonzola and truffles accompanied by a bottle of champagne.

    I have seen very little bashing

    Edit: Which is surprising considering the Pajero's minimal articulation...

    I doubt it.

    The rattles would concern me. I have travelled considerably, I have never had rattles perviously.

    I do at the moment - a dodgy cab mount - for which I already have spares but for which I do not have time.

    And yes, it is a 23 year old truck. May we speak about reliability ?.

    Also: I do not like fillet....
