    My car

    I have a Animal Auto on the 56 plate.Whilst it is a good drive and a work horse that is stylish and fun to drive,the Cost of parts are"off the scale" if you get them fitted by a Mitsubishi dealer,I give two examples. Firstly even though the vechile at the time was only five years old the rubber seals perished on the quarter light at the back of the cab.The seals for each window cost £46.00 plus VAT EACH - this seal is a thin piece of rubber that is less than a metre in length.The garage who fitted it were embarassed that the part cost so much and as a gesture of good will refunded me ( i could have bought the parts in a diy shop for less than £10.) Another cost is that of the lights - a genuine Mitsubishi rear lens will set you back over £100, however you can get an alternative on line for as little as £25 delivered. My brother who has his own business did a comparison on parts costs and as a result of my experience and his own research bought a fleet of trucks from Toyota as the service costs are much cheaper.He is delighted with all 16 and I know where I will buy next time.

    My car

    I have the Raging bull 58plate from new, I have it serviced by mitsu at about every 15k or when I can get it in. I have taken it back due to the adventurer hard top leaking only to be told it is not water tight and should expect leaks. an average cost to maintain each service is £300. the bridgestones that were fitted lasted 70k (90% motorway miles)and are £130 each but the cooper generals have been on for 75k now with no major sign of wear and cost £75 each. Keep a very close eye on your water levels and coolant as it tends to leak and is a sure sign your head gasket has gone. im finding out the hard way, had it serviced and cambelt done at 142k as soon as the heating started playing up and overheated. told mitsu dealer that I suspect there to be a problem, they said it was all ok and just keep an eye on it. 3k down the road it has seized and im now looking at a very expensive repair. the odd time I have had the diff lock up on me when starting in the morning causing the wheel to be dragged a few meters before it starts turning again. the comfort it fine and the interior is quite modern looking. I would sugest getting some rear parking sensors though as the boot door dents very easy and the bumper too. keep it maintained well and ensure you keep an eye on the water

    My car

    I have owned the L200 Animal since the end of November 08. The problem is I love the vehicle but it has spent more time in the garage being fixed than driving on the road. Intermittent fault on the engine management system, seized headrests in the rear, severe brake squeal and now at 3000 miles the turbo has blown. The dealer has been as much use as a candle in a rainstorm. Apparently the turbo is on back order and no timescale can be placed on my vehicles return. Lets hope the next 3000 miles is better.

    My car

    I went from a Landy to one of these and I can honestly say it is the worst vehicle I have ever driven. I have been in the Motor Trade all my life and have lost count of the cars I have owned and driven. I am now back in a Land Rover. From day one I had nothing but trouble with it. Window motors packing up, Wiper problems Electrical faults to name but a few. Also much heavier on fuel than suggested. On top of that I discovered it is the most uncomfortable vehicle on the road. The driving position and seat is terrible. Off Road it is good and the build quality is very good. Be careful if you buy on and intend doing more than local work.
