I thought it was common knowledge that these guys also run a laundry.......

Quite how they are allowed to carry on is beyond me. 

Its easy to say that but is that the case given the longevity of the business in its various guises?

:lol: I was thinking exactly the same when I read your comment. Horrid things, and by the time they get to 10yrs old (when I’ve occasionally had the misfortune of experiencing them) they’re usually absolutely knackered & ALWAYS have issues - they’re on my ‘Don’t buy list’. I think the last half-decent car they made was the Galant but no fucker wanted them.

Sapporo, Mirage and Celeste weren't too shabby;)

I was told earlier today that Mitsubishi pulling out of Europe was to do with NTLP. I don’t blame them,why would you be forced to buy carbon emission credits costing millions each year from Elon Musk or whoever in order to stay in business.

We used to sell loads of pajero’s (and yes I know what it means In Mexican or whatever). Again, fog light, speedo and radio band expander. They used fly out back then! 7 seats, dual climate and  all that leather! Fun times

I used to love driving along in a LWB Exceed Pajero and staring at that wooden steering wheel that would destroy my ribs if I hit something.

Sometimes they left a radar detector on the sun visor? Shouting at you in Japanese when drove past a Mac Donald’s! Ha!

And obviously who could forget BIMTA certificates! Lol

I had a nice tennis racket once. 'Black Ace' it was called, not sure about that.

Newspapers, which had porn halfway through, we had a Town Ace that had a tv installed, not bad in 2000.

Who didn't love a turbo timer?  Not sure why they didn't catch on.

That may well be because in climates like the UK the fuckin' things look great topside, but absolutely fall apart underneath :lol:

Case in point 2017 Shogun, bought new from Swale Motors by a very wealthy local fleet owner mate of mine, for his wife's xmas present, (so it's never even been off road) and he doesn't even live next to the Sea !!

All the stuff like Brake Backplates, Hose and other Brackets, little 10mm bolts holding stuff, etc etc are rotting away, started this at around 6 months old, he reported it under warranty and they offered to give him a can of paint :( ...................

Ho Ho Ho, wrong bloke to take the piss with .....................

The court case with Mitzi UK is ongoing ;)

Found this out when I briefly considered buying a newer Shogun for a towing vehicle that I could lug the tribe around in. Couldn't believe the corrosion on the things. Junk.

The last decent shoguns were the ones with a separate chassis.
