I do like my Shogun, however, I bought when it was 3 years old from a local dealer and got a 1 year warranty on it. A month after the warranty ran out, the auto gearbox went and I was horrified that a car that was 4 years old with 55k on the clock should have that problem. I contacted the dealer and Mitsubishi, but they were not sympathetic in any way and after a quote for £7000 for a new gearbox, I had to get a reconditioned one for £4500. I am still paying off the credit card bill 3 years on. It's a big monster and I feel incredibly safe in it. I keep thinking of changing it and then decide not to.
I have just removed the spare wheel from my Shogun Warrior, one of the last of the previous models and only registered December 2007. The spare wheel has been tight against the rear door and has rubbed the lacquer of the paint. The local dealer said there should have been a spacer fitted to the Warrior because of the larger wheels to prevent this happening and put a warranty claim in for the rectification work. Mitsubishi U.K. have refused the claim stating that it is not a manufacturer’s defect. What rubbish, if this is not a defect then what is?
I have had this car for about 6 months now, done just over 5000 miles and it been a pleasure all the way. I have towed a caravan and a horse trailer with no problem.
I am getting 24 MPG round trip (school run, work and motorway driving), now if the diesels are getting around 25-30 MPG and on average 10p/L more than petrol, there doesn seem to be ny cost saving on the diesel anymore.
This is a brilliant vehicle and compared to my 2.8 TD LWB I had, i would buy another one for a second car.
What you get for the price is awesome and I bet the good far out ways the bad on this site, so if you thinking of a Shogun you should not be disapointed.
I have owned my shogun now for 3 years. I must say it is ultra reliable and has never broken down on me but the servicing costs are just unbearable, I recently had a 56k service, allegedly timing belt although they don't have one but I was charged £650 for the privilege, even though it was a straight forward servive with no faults. It rides well on tarmac and reasonably quiet. Just recently the auto box has started playing up, it will stick in gear and not when hard accelerating, so expecting over the top expence again. If you can afford mitsubishi prices you should be ok.
