Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 4x4?
As long as it's well looked after and serviced properly, it's tough as old boots and you should have little to fear.
According to Warranty Direct, the only troubles come when it is abused. Particularly if its full towing capacity is regularly used, the steering, suspension and transmission can suffer.
Other than that, we're aware of no major problems with the car, and there have been no recalls affecting it throughout its life.
All this is reflected in the experience of Warranty Direct. According to their figures, although the Mitsubishis are among the oldest cars on their fleet, they are well below average in terms of the number of the claims on them.
Likewise, very few owners have posted reviews of the Shogun Sport online, but the few that have report no issues at all with the car's reliability. The only common complaints centre on the poor ride comfort and lack of refinement.
