What should I look for in a used Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4?
Shoguns remain tough as old boots, which is remarkable given the hard life many of them lead. Warranty Direct figures show the vehicle's reliability is better than average, and better than any others in its class, including the Discovery and even the X5.
There's no one area that's a particular weakness on the Shogun, but the engine, transmission and cooling systems are, between them, responsible for three-quarters of all claims.
Among the problems are gearboxes that can fail after about 60,000 miles, and, at around the same mileage, a suspension that may need an overhaul and brake discs that need replacing.
