I used to have a Nissin Pathfinder. Probably the best truck I've ever owned. In fact I would say It WAS the best truck I've ever owned. Later this year I'm going to buy a twin cab Navara for work. Nissins are good... IMO...LOL
 
Why do you want a short wheel base if all you are going to do is drive on the sand?Ying%20Yang

Good point but its not just for the sand. I just want a small 4 x 4, to tow my ski and use as a second vehicle, back and fore to work, school run etc etc. I don't want a big vehicle / big engine as i need to keep costs down.
 
The Pinin caught my eye and just wanted to find out if they were any good? Smile

I dont rate them tbh. Some are permenant 4x4 and dont have a low range of lockable centre diff are axle diffs. The GDI engine is poor. The fuel tanks and filler necks corrode. The high pressure fuel pumps fail. Coil packs are bad too. The GDI engine also suffers from carboning up of the valves due to being direct injection and not washing the back of the valves. The throttle bodys are prone too...magnets brake off of tps fails.  Why dont you get yourself a SWB shogun/pajero. The older shape 2.8 diesel go on forever.
 
Im a master tech for Mitsubishi, worked with them for over 8 years. So know a bit..lol
