Re the latest model auto Diesel Pajero, has any one had any success / experience with quietening down the noise in the cabin from the diesel engine.
I saw the reference to & will check this out also, however I wondered if any one had specific experience with this model?

If it is the very latest model, I would contact MM, because they did carry out modifications to reduce the noise, after many customer complaints.

What MM did was progressively increase the amount of Sound deadening in the DiD as model updates were released. So the NP will be qieter than an NM and the current MY05 model should be the quietest DiD.

Of course you may need a Sound Pressure level meter to actually tell the difference, it may not be great enough for normal hearing to detect the difference.

Yeh! After driving one I bought a CRDi Jerrycan. Much quieter.

I rang Mitsubishi today to enquire & got told that they hadn't had any complaints / queries regarding the DiD cabin noise.
She did say that the V6 petrol was quieter - Derr!!!
There was no one in technical advice that members of the public could speak with; I took it from this that only dealers can speak with them.
Pretty poor response to some one who was pretty keen on buying one.

Sounds like you spoke to the receptionist and she used the "random excuse generator".

She would have been proud as punch as she remembered a tip from the boys in the tea room that the petrol engine was quieter than the diesel.

Didnt mean that to be sexist by the way ;)
