    My car

    I have had the car now for just under a year from new. I had a short wheel base originally, but due to an accident with a bus, (not my fault), that got written off. The key there was that it stood up to a head on collision with a bus at over 60 mph! and I walked away. The natural choice was another. I got a great deal from Mitsubishi, and drove away a happy man.

    Now I admit, the interior will win no awards for design, but everything is there. Yes a bit dated, but it is there and it works. I was after a family truck that could cope with most things, especially winters. And it does them proud. There is more space than you need for everyday life, but great for adventure holidays. I have been all the way to Pisa, Italy with no problems. The drive was comfortable and it just cruised on the Motor ways all across Europe.

    Would I have another? If I get rid of this one, yes. But to be honest, once you have one, I think you have one for life. Look after them, and they last for ever, sturdy and reliable. Not the fastest on the road, but you never bought it for that. If you wanted a fast car, you would buy an Evo!!

    My car

    After owning my 2001 Mitsubishi Shogun Sport for two years with CONSTANT problems i feel the need to review this car!

    I absolutely love this car, the way it looks, the way it drives and the off road abilities the only problem is the fact that mine has spent the main part of its life in the garage and i wish i had never bought the thing!

    I had the cylinder head replaced after 72000 miles, when the car was just out of warranty - despite complaining to Mitsubishi they refused to assist with this problem. I have had constant problems with grating noises when in first gear - so much so that the i no longer use first gear at all. Only last week the car ended up back in the garage and once again more problems this time with the steering.

    I wouldn't recommend it and i will certainly never be buying a Mitsubishi again.

    My car

    I have owned mine for two years now, so it has been a long term test.

    I have had a custom stainless steel exhaust system fitted when the original one needed replacement. Included in the price of the exhaust was a custom end tail piece which looks absolutely fabulous.

    The whole lot cost around £500, which is only about £150 dearer than a normal mild steel replacement (check out MIJ Performance of the West Midlands) - The only downside to this was that it cost me an extra £70 on insurance (direct line) but since switching to Tesco insurance, they have not increased the premium.

    Fuel economy is OK for a 4x4, but if you spank the throttle it will make a substantial difference.

    If you need to pull anything behind you then look no further. Having loaded up my large trailer with a demolished wall and the tires looking, shall we say, a bit squashed, pulling off in 2WD just felt like there was nothing there - only the braking gave it away that I had increased my rolling mass by about a tonne.

    The only overall and regular gripe about the car is the rolling accelleration - good from standstill but at anywhere from 50mph or above you just have to make sure you have enough room to complete the overtake. But then again, it's not a sports car.

    Would I buy one again? Yes - new car prices are to be frank, too low, but for someone wanting their first 4x4, the Shogun Sport is a lot of metal for your money!
