Question NT or NS Petrol Auto

Ok I am stepping from my busted Landrover Discovery 2 to the all new shiny Mistubishi world, where engines dont break Hurray.

But not sure whether I should go for a NT or NS , I am going petrol yes I love spending money on fuel but hate spending it on engines at least for a while I need a safe haven.

I am looking at these two cars

The NT has yet to have the timming belt done, but the NS has had it done by a Mitsu dealer ( currently who is selling the vehicle). The NT looks in better internal condition and is a VR spec.

As far as I can see they engines and trans are identical ( remember this is the petrol so the trans is still jatco.

Once I do the timing belt ( I am in Victoria so I would be doing it before driving back, or getting the dealer to get it done a reputable mechanics of my choosing as not willing to risk it driving back) the NS is about 1000 to 1500 more, but it is 16000km more as well.

The NS service record is perfect only thing with the NT service record is 2 service with 10000km of each other were done at Kmart!!

Anyway interested to know thoughts on this.

Many Thanks

Normally I'd say go the NS for higher spec and value in accessories, plus lower kilometres.

But..... be aware that it's had a smack in the back and what looks like a DIY repair. That would make me look much closer elsewhere.

The description in a few places mentions GLX, yet the badge on the car says GLS.......for the NS

If its a GLX then it can't be the vehicle pictured.

I'd be careful.

NT looks better in my opinion, so as you say with a new timing belt installed prior to delivery would be my choice.

Default A good first decision

My experience getting from a V8 Disco 1 to an NS Petrol/Auto has been pure joy.Fuel consumption isn't too silly (15), but the reliability of the NS has been just great.
5 years without issue, while the much loved Disco was known to most of Melbourne's tow trucks !

I change the oil every 10k, brake pads easy. I will leave the timing belt/spark plug services to a dealer.

Good luck choosing between the two. I couldn't help without seeing them...
