Cant say much for the other years since I have the 2003 MS Limited 3.5L AWD with limited slip differential.
Been dependable since I bought it new. I daily drive this vehicle and it does get better gas mileage than my 80. Only draw back is that it has a small fuel tank approx 19 gallons which would give you better than 260 miles. Which is not great for long trips away from the Interstate.
Im 5'6" and I fit perfect with the second row folded down.
The only thing Im looking at is replacing the timing belt soon with my current miles of 85K.
I also plan to make this more of a overlander with my 80 as the more extreme of the two. What I found out about the MS is there is a very limited amount of vendors that cater to it. OME is good for suspension upgrades. But ARB lockers per site are limited to the early models = dont see anything for my model year and up. But really, overlanding just requires you to have a dependable vehicle with good clearance - right?
mrbishi - your rig is one that I look to model my future project but without the body lifts since I will be maxing out with 32"s. Do you have any websites that feature the Challenger (Pajero Sport or MS) and is a good source for Tech? Thanks.
