pathys are good cars. as F truckin said, they do autos every now and again, and the l/h rear plug is a fucking slut to get to.
theire fuel economy isnt great. u miiiiiiiiight get near that economy figure on the highway with a tailwind.
they go ok, nothing exciting. doubt they would be great off road. towing capacity 2000kg.
all in all i think a similar year pajero is more car for the money, if you can get it for a similar price.
