Cons: "a little higher profile and mid 90's ext. styling"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Unconventional design, (one sliding door) but very easy to get in and out of, seats fold for ALOT of storage space if necessary, enough power if you "get on it hard", very easy to drive and park in small spaces, and pretty good gas mileage for an 18 year old car. Roof rack, rear hatch, power everything and cruise (a must), and starts every time. Mitsubishi drive train should last forever...."
"It had rust holes in the ceiling, it had 8 accidents and it was given to me for free.... BUT BOY DID THIS CAR NEVER SAY DIE!!! it had great gas mileage, i never had to put a penny into it! i was getting like 35mpg CITY!!! it had quick starts and fairly peppy engine, u hit gas and it went, no complains there. the i just recently sent it to the junk yard, on day i came out to start it and it would not kill over any more. when i was done with it it had 357k miles on it!!!! how many cars can do that today?"
"This car is very dependable, and has not required any major repairs (over 130,000 miles). I get the oil changed every 7500 miles. Recently had a mechanic check it out to give an opinion of what potential problems he could find. Response: "There is nothing wrong with that car. However, if you want to sell it, the mechanic wants to buy it from you." This is an one-owner car, and I've driven it for 11 years."
"Keep it tuned up & maintained and you will get great service & reliability with the manual transmission. (I have the 4-speed model-normally it came with the 5-speed transmission but it had the SAME final gear ratio in both transmission) I have read reviews on the automatic transmissions which had a few "issues". Excellent "strip-down" model if you like the lack of hassles with all of those "deluxe" convenience options that end up breaking anyway. Take care of it and it will take care of you!"
"This was my college car that I never want to give up. I have had it for 10 years now and it has had little to no problems. It gets 40 mpg and only takes 3 liters of oil. Maintainance is easy. I wish I could find another car with this great of gas milage and dependability."
