Mitsubishi Pajero 2007 Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mitsubishi Pajero 2007 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Is the engine light not covered by warranty?
The engine light is telling you that there is a problem, and the diagnostic check indicated it was a problem with the DPF, which needs replacing or cleaning.
It’s not covered by the warranty, as it’s a normal wear-and-tear item. On the surface it doesn’t appear that you are being unfairly treated.

When introduced to Australia in 1983, the Mitsubishi Pajero was arguably the first affordable 4WD that was a family wagon rather than a truck-based 4WD.However, this is a genuine SUV, not a passenger ...Read More
Good budget 4WD's for travelling
You have to consider what type of four-wheel driving you want to do. If it's heavy-duty then go for an older Toyota Landcruiser or Prado, if it's less taxing then a lighter model might do for you. I would suggest a 2006 Toyota Landcruiser Prado or a 2007 Mitsubishi Pajero.

Mitsubishi Pajero 2007: Have I paid too much for repair?
You can't blame the dealer for not picking it up if the vehicle wasn't playing up when it went in for service. As for the goodwill payment, it does seem a small token only, but the car is six years old and has notched up a fair few kays, so I think you would pushing uphill in trying to get more money out of Mitsubishi.
Mitsubishi Pajero: Problem with the EGR valve
I don't believe there is a way of detecting the problem before it actually happens, except maybe to remove the EGR valves and manifolds and clean them, and that's probably worth doing if you're concerned about it happening on your car. I do also think Mitsubishi should come to the party and cover at least part of the cost of repairs.
Mitsubishi Pajero 2007: Clutch replacement
Clutches are a regular complaint item at Carsguide, but determining what is acceptable life for a clutch is difficult because it depends so much on use and that varies from owner to owner. I would regard 39,000 km as unacceptable in normal use, but to argue your case would be a long and frustrating thing to do and I would fit a heavy-duty aftermarket clutch, which should give you better service.
Mitsubishi Pajero: Won't restart
LOOK at the fuel system. It's usually the cause of the problem. It could be a number of things, from a faulty fuel pump to a faulty fuel pressure regulator and dirty injectors. The temperature in the engine bay builds up after you turn the engine off and can cause the fuel in the fuel lines to vaporise. When you come to restart the engine, there isn't enough fuel getting through to fire up. It's not until the temperature comes down again and enough fuel can get through for the engine to start. Take it to a Mitsubishi specialist and have them go through the fuel system for you.
