Advantages Very good off-road. Very good for towing. High driving position.
Disadvantages Running costs. Pointless if it's only for using on the road.
Economy is not a word you should worry about if you're thinking of buying one of these monsters. There's no doubt that driving a gas-guzzler like this puts you on the same social level as public smokers, or using peat-based products in your garden.
So how did I, a bit of a self-confessed eco-bore, end up head over heels in love with a Pajero?
In fact, the Pajero was so big that I had to step up onto the running board and haul myself up into the drivers seat. This is only difficult if you're afraid of heights and once you're up there it's a whole, new, luxurious world, waiting to be discovered.
Once you're used to driving one of these it's very hard indeed to go back to using an "ordinary" car. There's no comparison.
These wonderful toys tempt you to go off-road, as they show how steep an angle you're tipped over at, how steep the mountain you're assaulting is (up or down) and a rolly-ball thing like you see in aeroplane control panels in disaster movies. You know. The one that shows the artificial horizon, although what the Pajero is telling you is if you're above or below sea level. Endless fun to be had here!For people who prefer to drive on the road, there are all the usual instruments, including a rev. counter so you can see when you're stamping too hard on the expensive pedal.
