Seems like a fair review. What I like about my Paj is that it works and is totally reliable and that counts for a lot over any extra bells or whistles.

I noticed the comment about the turning circle making it "cumbersome" in tight quarters. Perhaps modern 4wds have come a long way since this Pajero was released, but my NT has a much better turning circle than Shorty.

I noticed that too and I reckon the turning circle of the Paj is brilliant. Better than any of the dual cab utes we had with us on the last trip and better than the Prado. That comment had me a bit befuddled.

I third this, it is about the only comment I was truly puzzled by.

Having driven my sonís Isuzu MUX I can add that the MUX has a terrible turning circle.

I mean noticeably bad when you first get into it. And the other thing I didnít like was that itís not AWD, only 4WD on dirt. I always liked the tight turning circl on my NT Paj, and the Paj Sport is similarly easy to get into those tight spots.

Completely agree.

There is a particular U Turn I have to take to get into my previous workplace, which truly shows how different cars react to the same conditions. I used to drive a mate's Camry 2003 to work and I literally had to swing wide to make sure I completed the turn in one go. With the Pajero, it was a lot easier. My friend with his Navara also had to take a slightly larger turn to get through in one attempt.
