Grey import 1997 NK Pajero

Looking at a vehicle for our inlaws and came across a 97 Pajero V6 jap import today with low klms (for the age) in a tidy condition

I believe it was imported around 2005

It has lots of stuff that the Aust deivered ones probably didn't have such as rear aircond,auto aircond,ajustable shocks,sunroof,etc and this concerns me as i know with Toyota grey imports that the extra stuff can cause drama's with parts availability if they need to be repaired

Wondering if anyone has thoughts or experiences with this model as far as reliability goes with 100,000 klms on the clock and expecially how helpful Mitsubishi dealers are when you ask them for parts for a grey import

Also no record of a 90k service being carried out so not able to verify if the timing belt has been replaced

Wondering if anyone on the forum has had one of these & any thoughts would be appreciated

Regards Don

either way i would do timing belt due to age these werent done till 100,000 kms anyway if its a 3.5 v6 and not 3.0 v6 it will be an alright vehicle but i dont like them myself
id recommend fitting complete kit plus water pump while ur there due to age and at least u know it will be ok, pending on finances obviously but definately seals and idlers
yes ur right they are serviced every 15 however still gets replaced at 100,000
