Default High Kms 3.8

Hi all,

I've got the opportunity to buy a NS VRX 3.8 auto in great condition for what I consider to be the good price of 7k.

Car drives as expected, has full service history and is pretty standard apart from upgraded head unit.

Now my only major concern and the reason why it's cheap (from dealers) - 330km.

What do you guys think?

Thanks.

Is that the Jatco or Aisin auto. Coz if itís a Jatco itís prob on its last legs it it hasnít already been reconditioned based on what Iíve read and also heard from an auto specialist

Has 3 year warranty (for what that's worth) - any other high mileage 3.5 or 3.8 here?

Think I recently read here about a 3.5 or 3.8 with 400,000K on it.

How does a car over 10 years old still have a 3 year warranty?
It would be a third party warranty that wouldn't be worth the paper it's written on, even if it was a Mits lifetime drive train warranty, they don't pass to the new owner.

I did a fair bit of reading before I bought my 2004 3.8L. (Since sold it)

The 3.8 is pretty bulletproof from what I read. Even the mechanic who inspected it before my purchase said the same, and that the 3.8L had a fair few improvements over the 3.5 that help with longevity.

My main concern as mentioned earlier is the auto transmission but if itís an Aisin probably fine.

Also they like a drink.

All petrol Pajeros from NM, NP, NS, NT to the NW had the Jatco gearbox.

Diesels had Jatco until the NT when they went to the Aisin gearbox due to the increase in power from the diesel motor.
