My Daughter went camping this weekend, which gave me the opportunity to babysit her Pajero.
It’s pretty tight for interior room, despite it’s exterior dimensions. The interior and the driving experience reminds me of a Forester of the same era. Clutch and transmission are smooth and forgiving. Body roll is as you’d expect. Driving dynamics are closer to a Forester than the Wrangler.
I told my daughter that, if you’re going to drive an ‘enthusiasts’ vehicle, you have a responsibility to keep it presentable. (I know I’m projecting...I call it positive modeling, heh). Her bar of “presentable” differs from mine, so I thought I’d surprise her with a head-start.
“GRIP THE GROUND”
It’s got a some patina, especially on the 20 year old Japanese plastic bits. I fixed up some of the problematic paint areas with ScratchX, which worked well on this silver to hide a bunch of fine scratches and rock dings.
Afterwords, I took the Roadster out for it’s season debut.
A very awesome, chill, Oppo kinda day.
