» Sales and Service Network : Mitsubishi Motors has over 30 yrs Manufacturing experience with Pajero and till date has sold over 40,00,000 Pajero in International market with very high customer satisfaction. This makes the reliability pretty strong
However in India - Mitsubishi has very small Service Network as against Toyota. Also - after the recent discontinuation of Evo, Cedia, Outlander - the Car Model Portfolio of Mitsubishi India is pretty small - leading to doubts about sustainability and Investment in India especially if thought for a 10 yr period
Both Cars are Internationally Acclaimed Proven and Best Seller with Millions of Happy Customers.
