Hey guys, not really sure where the best place to post this is, so my apologies if this isn’t the right spot.

I’m on a budget of about $4k CAD and I’m wanting a small, reliable 4x4 (low range incl) that I can drive around town as DD and also take the kids up some forestry roads. I’m wanting ‘ok’ gas mileage (currently have a 3rd Gen 4Runner w/ 350,000 kms on the clock).

So I’ve narrowed it down to a 2000-2004 Pajero IO or a Jimny. I’m going to be importing this to Canada from Japan. I know the Jimny does not come in 4 doors, but the Pajero IO does, and I have two small kids.

Primary concern is reliability and ease of getting parts. I have a general sense that the Suzuki is going to be betting in that sense than the Mitsubishi.

Which would you guys recommend. Reliability, then parts availability as primary importance.
