    My car

    We brought this vehicle three years ago because of Japenese quality. It is four and a half years old, lovely car to drive and being petrol is smooth and quiet but unfortunately Japenese quality is not so good. For example At three and a half years old the entire air conditioning needed replacing costing £1700, had to wait three weeks for computer parts for air conditioning to come into country.Please note this vehicle is not an import!! Six months later brakes fail not stopping vehicle and when taken to Mitsubishi dealer we were told there was a call back but we were never advised of this. A further six months later bearing in mind the car has only done 40,000 miles the rear supsension has gone costing £1700. We have never driven the car off road, how long would it last off road????? The more you spend on a car the less reliable it is? Next car Ford or Vauxhall!!!!

    Would never buy a Japanese car again.

    My car

    I own a 2002 (52) shogun, i used to have the earlier 2.8, and i had no problems with that , so i bought the 3.2 shogun its now got 38,000 miles on the clock, and its done nearly as many as that on the back of a break down truck,note IF you must buy a shogun, join Green Flag, trust me.. you Will need them, i dare not go on long jouneys with it now as i do not trust the engine, the cylinder head gasket lets go on regular occasions, i did manage to get a new cylinder head out of mitsubishi, but my local dealer would be best advised to go into bicycle maintenance as i am sure thats where they get their staff from, on one occassion when my car had been dragged in, i found that the very green and young apprentice had been let loose on it, needless to say it went again in a very short time,MITSUBISHI just do not want to know, the fact that it was within their warrantty period, was just an exercise to drag the job out (BODGIT)this is where i suspect the apprentice comes in, so that the warrenty has expired, then tell me, relly it needs a new engine, !! its only done 38.000 now, NEXT ONE WILL BE A TOYOTA

    My car

    I have owned 7 Shoguns 2.5 and 2.8. I wish I had never ever seen this 3.2DID car. So far the car has had a new cylinder head full complete with camshaft valves the lot £3,900 the car has never overheated. A new vacuum pump £600, A new Diesel pump £3,600 a new radiator £600, plus 4 recalls. 11 return visits for an unexplained hot starting problem that apparently is due to an ECU remap on a 2003 model....Strange how when I have asked 20 or so other owners if they have the same problem that they have never heard of it. Mileage (between breakdowns) is 56,000 full Mitsubishi service history. if you are reading this thinking it is hammered it does not even have a tow bar and the last time I went on a motorway was 6 weeks ago. This car is best described as a liability /LEMON..... Give me back my 2800 any day. Anything that was made of metal in the 2800 is now plastic and falls off if you give it a sideways glance. Mitsubishi have lost it with this car COMPLETELY. Up side accelerates at motorway speed when the 2800 had to pull over. still a Lemon though VX landcruiser next The Aussies can't be wrong

    My car

    We have had our Shogun for three and a half years. I did love it, but now I have had enough of it.

    We chose this car because of Mitsubishi's heritage of reliability. Since we had it, we have had to have new wheel bearings, which cost just under £1000 to replace, and when we took it to Mitsubishi for the work to be carried out, they could not get the bearings off and had to leave it to soak for days.

    We have also had to replace the air-conditioning unit (over £750 including VAT and fitting) and the water pump, as well as recalls. Services are also too expensive at twice a year, whereas most other 4x4s are yearly or every two years.

    We have never spent this amount of money on repairs for a car. I do not trust this car for reliability. We are now looking at the nissan pathfinder.

    It's a nice-looking car, though, and has a tough body.
