You could do a search of Pajeroclub forum
& outerlimits 4x4 Mits. forum
Quite a bit been posted there & general consensus on V6 seems to be
very reliable with reports of high kms from motors but depends on how it has been treated.
I have a 2.5td with 220,000kms & its going better now than 4 years ago after a
couple of simple tweaks. 10kms p/l at 100kmh & better in slower going.
Weakness is the gearbox which is cheaper to buy new or repair than some others.
Later versions said to be better. Mine has original brakes all round, & only one ball joint replaced. They have strong diffs & axles.
At 190,000 it is almost due for timing belt change & major service & possibly clutch if never touched & brakes if not done before.
