What's the used Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4 like?

The Shogun is from a time when 4x4s were designed to go off-road. As far removed from a Chelsea Tractor as you can get, this is a great car for muddy fields - not something you can say of a BMW X5 or Volvo XC90.

However, the X5 and XC90 are perfect examples of how the market has moved on. Modern buyers want a 4x4 that's more capable on Tarmac, and there the Shogun really is a step back in time. The ride never settles, especially at low speeds, and the handling is no better than mediocre, with lots of body roll in bends and vague steering.
