What should I look for in a used Mitsubishi Pinin 4x4?

Mitsubishi 4x4s have a reputation for being tough. However, the Pinin is not as solid as its larger brothers.

Warranty Direct tells us that there is much to worry about, particularly on older cars. Watch out for rust on these models, and expect big bills once the car has done over 50,000 miles. If the car has been used for towing, the wheel bearings, suspension and transmission can suffer.

Only one recall has affected the car, and it concerned just under 1500 cars built before the end of 2000. There was a possibility of a fault in the electrics, which could lead to the engine failing to start or stopping while the car was driving.
