"Mom bought this car (1991 model) in 1990 (she went shopping on December 31, 1990 when dealers were MOTIVATED to reduce end-of-year inventory for tax purposes!!). I inherited it when she passed away in 1992 and it has surpassed all expectations: 257000 miles as of August, 2013. It dinged me for about $5K in repair bills in 2011 but has been cost free (except for routine maintenance) since. The hatchback makes loading even bulky items easy (I carried a wood burning stove from Virginia to Kentucky about 15 years ago!!). Fuel economy runs in the mid 40s on the highway and upper 30s around town; handling is superb and the front wheel drive has always gotten through snowy winters in northern Virginia. As others have noted on this site, I'd buy another one in a minute if Dodge still made them. All in all, a simple, well constructed vehicle (thanks to the Mitsubishi components) that will likely outlive me."

Good, nice,convenient vehicle runs great.

"I got this car as a sophomore in high school and it just died on me 8 years later. One of the best 600 dollar investments someone can make. Definitely good for someone first learning to drive. It's cheap and reliable. A+"

"I own a 1994 Dodge Colt. I bought it just about a year ago. I have never been so satisfied with a vehicle in my life. Since i have bought i have only had to replace the radiator. The only reason i even had to replace that was because the kid that owned it before me got into a wreck with it. But other than that everything seems to be working very well. I do not ever want to sell it. It is also still running like brand new after 200,000 miles!"

"I bought a base model new in 1989. Saved money but every day I wished I had bought the upscale model or GT. Mine got 38+ MPG on highway, maybe 31 in town. In 5 years I only had a dead battery and squeaky struts that were taken care of under warranty. Even with only 81 HP, it was fast enough for real-world driving. I should have kept mine much longer than I did. It would have likely been running well even today."
