Default NS Pajero Feedback

The generation 4 NS Pajero was released in October 2006. Many of you would have realised by now if you had made the right choice by buying a Pajero. Happy enough with it or should have gone another brand?
What about servicing and warranty?

Happy with vehicle. NS VRX Auto

Issues that I consider need addressing:
1/ DPF / Engine light.
2/ Poor lights, particularly lowbeam.
3/ Drivers Seat lumber support, squab support.
4/ Servicing costs.

Bit of an old thread this one. The dpf is a diesel particulate filter and in the ns was only fitted to auto diesel to comply with emissions. Some had issues due to not using low ash oil , and sensor in manifold can get clogged up causing limp mode. I have an ns auto diesel 2nd hand with 110000 jms on it doneabout 20000 jms myself with no issue.

Nothing to do with not using low ash oil, mine had low ash from day one and at every oil change.

I had at least six limp modes.

The issues were our crappy diesel plus to much stop start low speed driving in the suburbs. The DPF couldn't get to temperature to complete a burn cycle.

MM Japan had to work out upgrades to the computer regards the DPF and burns. Took to or three updates over many months to solve the problem.

MM Australia in their generosity gave some owners Caltex Fuel vouchers for their trouble

I know I received some. Can't recall if it was $1,000 or $2,000 worth.

MM wasn't the only company to have DPF trouble, it even affected Mercedes and others here in OZ

Did Mitsi ever solve the DPF problem or does it still effect all years & models?

Reason I ask is that I currently drive a 2006- 3.8l petrol Exceed NS but am considering upgrading to a later model diesel. Tend to buy my vehicles from the Japanese auction so I can choose options and have all the bells & wistiles.

From what I understand the Mitsi Model NT and later either eliminated or perfected the DPF. True of False?
