How big is a Mitsubishi Pajero?

That may sound stupid but we don't have them here. My travel agent has secured one for me but I am kind of worried it is too big. I want high clearance but don't need a huge car. Last time were there it was a huge diesel that made me nervous driving north of the Daintree river. I don't remember what make it was then.

I am looking it up online but I am not much of a car person so for me it's like reading Greek.

At home I drive a small SUV hybrid. A ford escape. That's about the size I want. Seats four.

Any words of wisdom from my Australian friends?

They're not huge, but I personally would have trouble wrangling one around Perth because the streets are so narrow here. Probably not a problem out in the sticks.

Looks similar in size to a Ford Escape to me, but I'm no car expert either.

I think the Ford Escape still has a 'car' feel whereas the Pajero will feel a little bit chunkier and more 4WD ish if you know what I mean. I would class it as the smaller of the 4WDs though and not as big as say a Toyota LandCruiser. I think you'll be fine and you probably wouldn't want any less.

You may have them where you live but they are likely called a Shogun, Pajero is slang in Spanish for "wanker" and as expected is not used where Spanish is widely used

That's just too funny!

Sounds like a plan Toucan2 - we can catch up for dinner if you're keen!

Any other Brisbane/Gold coast folk interested?
