We are buying used Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport with a mileage - what to look for?
Many Russian drivers believe thatJapanese SUV "Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport" characteristics of the dynamics are more developed, but this is not so. In fact, the prefix "Sport" says that the car is a class below the standard "Pajero". This is evidenced by its reduced cost. At the moment this car is very popular in the post-Soviet space, and on the streets you can find even 20-year-old models. The cost of them, of course, is tempting, and to Japanese quality so far there have been no complaints. But here's what to look for when buying a used Mitsubishi Pajero-Sport with a mileage of more than 100 thousand kilometers? The answer to this question you will learn in this article.
In the event that the car in the whole historyoperation has never participated in road accidents, the future owner can not worry about the condition of the bodywork. Especially it is worth paying attention to the Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport with a run that was released in the 1990s. This generation of cars has a very strong coloration, which has repeatedly confirmed the owners' feedback. And even if there was a small scratch on the body, still such an SUV will be protected from corrosion, because the metal is very strong and resistant to rust. Although it is better to be safe and ground the damaged surface - so the body of your "subcompact" will definitely be invulnerable to water.
If we are talking about Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport withrun in 150-200 thousand and the age of 5-6 years, you have to be very careful. The 2000th generation of SUVs has a less qualitative coloring, and if there is not a single rust on the body, be sure that such a car has been repainted.
What fears can be hidden under the hood?
Most often these off-road vehicles for the RussianThe market was manned by two engines. Among them, a 3-liter petrol engine and a 2.5-liter turbodiesel. If you are offered other units, namely an engine with a capacity of 197 "horses" and a volume of 3,500 cubic centimeters, you should know that this is not a real "Japanese", but his American counterpart named "Montero." Such a power plant is less reliable than the true Japanese engines. By the way, you can meet such a copy on our roads very often. And it does not matter where you bought the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport - in Moscow or Yekaterinburg.
Suspension and chassis
The running gear of the SUV is quite reliable, butit can not be called a standard. For example, the silent blocks on them fail every 80 thousand kilometers, so when buying the Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport with mileage, be prepared for unexpected expenses. As for the suspension, it was spring-loaded until 2000, after which the engineers replaced it with a spring one. In any case, if both parts are sagged, the cost of replacing them will be very serious.Determine the exact life of the springs is impossible, but rest assured - if you buy the Mitsubishi-Pajero-Sport with a run of 200-250 thousand kilometers, the suspension will soon ask for repairs.
