Looking at upgrading the Mrs car to a 4WD to tow/have a bit more room/go off-road with the growing fam.
Looking currently into a Pajero, but also looking at the paj sport and mux.
Would love to get away with a car for sub 30k.
Anyone have any of the above and can offer any help with what to look for/issues with any of them/or if I could be looking at another vehicle for that money?

Cheers

30k, that'll get you a 3.2L BT-50

I tow with a BT50. I also tow a 2.7t excavator for work, which is just under the 3.5t capacity.

You don't like/have looked into Nissans or Toyotas?

Never really liked the Nissan’s too much, and the Toyota’s just seem that little bit out of the price range.
My old man has a BT50 and it’s great.
What are the Jeeps like as a whole package? Any issues with them with one if they have over 100km on them?

I personally wouldnt touch a used jeep. Way too many junky problems. They are nice to drive if you like that big boaty yank thing. But i couldn't trust them to not catch on fire while your driving. (Yes, this actually happens with jeeps)

Typically will just be a boat (2ish Tonne), but wouldn’t mind be able to tow my olds caravan which is quite a bit more than that.
