  • Ns petrol diesel or nt diesel

    Hi all,
    Looking to up grade the triton due to the family expanding.
    Have found some NS and NT on carsales that I am interested in.

    NS Petrol VRX
    http://www.carsales.com.au/private/d...?Cr=19&sdmvc=1
    Having had the petrol Triton for many years and how I use the 4wd through out the year, I understand the pros and cons of both petrol and diesel trucks.

    I like the exceed level even though it is a petrol using 15l per 100km.VRX is well kitted out too. Other than the cracked manifolds and fuel usage, have not read much bad with them.
    Then there is a NS diesel for similar KM but better fuel economy/ torque. However after reading the threads, not confident with the DPF and flashing light issues ect. Having better fuel economy is not much good to you if it keeps going into limp mode and is living at the mechanics.
    Or skip the NS and its issues and get an NT diesel.

    Looking for opinions on the NS diesel and the NT diesel. Mechanically the petrols does not seem to have the same issues as the diesels but comes at the fuel cost.

    The NT is really going to stretch the budget but maybe the best way to go in the long run.
    Cheers
    Scott

    Scott, are you willing to own a car with a manual gearbox? If yes, then look at an NS as a manual didnt have DPF's. If you need an auto, then go the NT for the diesel.

    My preference is a V6. Quiet and smooth, and deliver reasonable power (NS V6 would be heaps better than my 3.5 for power). The 3.8 MIVEC in the Gen 4 is more powerful, yet more efficient than the Gen 3 engines. Have read on here somewhere that 13.5-14 l/100 is an around town average for a Gen 4 V6, but cant confirm.
    Cheers, Bundy.

      I have a manual in the triton but one of the other reasons for the change is an auto so the wife can drive it when we are camping.
      Thanks for your thoughts Bundyk.

        When I was looking at a Pajero, i noticed most of the cars in QLD for sale were petrols. Is your fuel cheaper than the rest of us?
        It depends on how many ks you travel, how long are your daily trips/work trips. Diesels not the best for short trips(5-10 mins)
        I would go the Mivec 3.8 as suggested.

          I currently do not reside in QLD, but did for about 8years, the QLD state government discounted 10% on the fuel exercise. So yes, they use to I don't know about now.

            Have you concidered a 04-06 NP Update DiD Auto Exceed, Platinum, Ann, etc ? No DPF or Manifold Issues, Plus you might get one a whole lot cheaper? Still a few around under 200k

                I think I will drop the NS for the NT in the diesel range and keep looking at the NS petrols. Work is 10 minutes away and we use the wifes rav4 for around town trips. Having a look this weekend at both models so see how it goes.
                Appreciate everyones input.

                  DPF on NS is only really an issue for people who do a lot of round town driving. I get out on the motorway often enough that I don't have any issues with the DPF in my NS.

                    NT Update dropped the DPF and made many Improvements, Is this correct? If so, that would be the Diesel Model to get?

                        Go the NT diesel. The better economy and consequent extra range are fantastic. The extra torque is very handy too. I've had both petrol and diesel Pajeros and I'd never go back to a petrol. Mitsubishi stopped making them in petrol as well which tells a bit of a story in itself. That NT's got a bullbar and a decent set of AT tyres on it as well.

                          The petrol exceed is now not available. I will have a look at the NT's.

                            I think the Petrol V6 are still made, however they are no longer being imported to Australia.

                              I just looked it up on Wikipedia, and you're spot on Cracka
                              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_Pajero

                              That makes sense when I think about it as the middle east market seems to be mostly petrols.
