Especially ukiona gari hata mzungu anaendesha then it must be a good product. But I'm mostly talking about the old pajeros. The one's that still take serious abuse like carrying napier grass in the village.
i Have seen a Mzungu with a defender, a few odieros with L32 & L33 Rangies and other orange odieros with Disco 3s & 4s, which means they must be very hardy vehicles.. actually kulikua na mwingine alivunja record juzi, he was pushing a freelander..

That dude is just a good writer with very good descriptive reporting/writing skills, superficial research abilities and well.. love for motoring.. si ati he is the Jesus Christ of motoring..
Back to the Paj..
go for something else, don't like it just because they are lookers..
