My dad is looking at a Pajero, coming up for auction next week, with 130000km on the clock. He started the engine and reckons it made the entire vehicle shake. ?

He isn't familiar with diesels but said that it seemed to rev ok. Unfortunately he is unable to take it for a drive as the Number plates have been removed. The rest of the vehicle apparently looks to be in excellent condition.

Are the engines in the Pajero reliable and what advise should I pass on to him.

Thanks for your help

Auctions are things to think long and hard about.

You can get a deal.

YOU CAN GET A SHIAT HEAP... think why its at auction and not in a car yard, or selling private... does it have real underlying problems???

The diesel Pajero is a very reliable vehicle, they do shake when they first start from cold, its probably ok at 130k its about half way through its life before a major rebuild. Eric.

I have bought an NL pajero TD at action last year and am very happy with it.
They do shake and rattle a bit when cold but that's a a diesel for you.
Of course you take a punt when buying at auctions but the price should reflect that, I bought about 10 grand under market value, so have a good look and don't pay too much.
good luck.
