    My car

    Reading the other reviews here I feel I should redress the balance.I have owned this car from new (on a 53 plate) and it has now covered 60k miles. In this time it has been totally reliable with not even a lightbulb replaced. Sure, it shakes, rattles and rolls on the twisty bits and my local garage is allocating a special pump just for me but I knew that before I bought it. It was a hell of a lot cheaper than an X5 or ML, suffers a lot of abuse with my young family and will do 113mph on a French motorway (not one iota more).

    Overall a very good investment if you buy it for what it is and if you can afford the petrol. I intend to keep mine as a second car until it keels over or Gordon decides I can't have it any more.

    My car

    i have owned this car a 2002 model for 2 years now and feel it is a strong and reliable car, it is roomy and has more than enough room for my young family and all the pushchaires bikes etc. running costs however are high and i am lucky to get 18-19 mpg out of it but it makes up for it in sheer on road presence, plastics are a bit tacky and cheap looking and for the price of the car they could be a lot better. on the road its a good long distance cruiser and it tows without effort never really had any problems with it apart from the gear lever coming loose, had too go to specialist mitsibushi website as my local dealers could not locate the problem even when i told them what they needed to do. would buy again but stick to diesel unless you have reserves of cash.

    My car

    I have owned this vehicle from new. Registered in June 2004. It has now covered 40000 miles. Generally it's a fine car. However It has been plagued with braking problems from new. Its on is's third set of disks which are ground every 3-4000 miles. Mitsubishi will not replace the discs under warranty. They grind them repeatedly and when they reach their minimum thickness charge you £700 to replace them saying it is a normal consumable part. It has now started to misfire at low throttle setting . After reading some of the other reports I am concerned it may be a cylinder head problem, Have road tested the new model but am not impressed. Will be changing manufacturer next time.

    My car

    Back again... My Shogun has now moved on 1500 miles, and it has been very steady, and hasn't been towing.

    However, the crankshaft oil seal has now gone, pouring oil all over the drive. The local dealer quotes over £500 to put a new seal in - this vehicle has not done 40,000 miles yet. I really do wish that I had kept the 2.8 that I traded in for this one. I repeat my last warning: if you get one of these, make sure you buy into a get-you-home package - I use Green Flag.

    I bet you don't get this much trouble from a Trabant.
