We checked out some motors yesterday and hoping to go back and test drive some next week but wanted to narrow down the choice and not drive them all
We're thinking about long term services ownership costs. In the past I've either had old bangers (that I've never servcied) or company cars (that I've never paid to service) so I have no idea how expensive service costs are, but I'm assuming not cheap!
The cars we've looked at are:
Shogun GDi - 3.5 V6 Petrol - 2002 car with 65k on the clock
Pajero Jap import - 3.2 DiD Diesel engine - 2002 with 69k on the clock
Prado Jap import - 3.0 Diesel - 1998 with 102k on the clock
Colorado - 3.0 Diesel - 1997 with 115k on the clock
Tried to look around the net and it seems that the Prado needs a service every 6 months, and it is quite expensive (I could only see an Oz site so not sure how accurate this is) whilst the Pajero seemed to be only every 12 months. The petrol I couldn't really understand frequency.
Any help, advice would be great.
Also, would the cost/frequency of a Shogun/Pajero 3 be the same as the Pajero 2 diesel?
