  • Pre-purchase inspection in Perth..

    Hi all,

    I am new to the country and am soon going to be in the market for a G2 Pajero, hopefully NL model..

    I am in Fremantle, WA and am looking for a garage / mechanic / enthusiast who would be happy to do a pre-purchase inspection on a Pajero..

    If thats you let me know, also any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers, Dave

    The simplest inspection regime would be to approach Royal Automobile Club of WA (RACWA). They would do a prepurchase inspection. Ensue that you advise them that it is a 4WD and that you intend to use it as a 4WD not as a town car. Additionally you could do your own visual inspection, particularly of underbody low points for impact damage and for oil leaks etc.

      g'day dave,

      did you have a previous car? if so, did you like the service you were getting at your previous mechanic? (being new to the country then that might present a proble)
      this would be a good starting point for a pre-purchase.

      the royal auto club of your state is also a decent place to have an inspection, but ive been hearing that the Vic version has been slipping in their standards (being less thorough) of recent times- but thats just hearsay.

      of course, do one, what you can, yourself- look for any damage, leaks, take it for a drive and get it to operating temps then see if it leaks, shudders, shakes, pulls to one side, give it a bootful and check for smoke etc etc etc. doing this first might uncover something your unhappy with before you spend the money on a mechanic's inspection.

      best of luck.
