Pros: "Economical, fun to drive, looks great, reliable"

Cons: "Quick clutch, entry hard for big person, shifter"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"For 24 years, carefully driven, I've gotten 21.176 miles per gallon (kept on my computer) while enjoying the performance that's obviously built into the car. Nothing has broken yet except a fan belt. I've parked it in the far reaches of mall parking lots so the paint is pristine except for a few stone chips that have been touched up. There's a little spot of rust on the gas cap cover where, I'm assuming, there has been a little leak in the gas cap. It's a blast to drive albeit lacking most of the modern day conveniences. And I can't think of a contemporary car, that I can afford, that looks as good."

Fast sports car; flaws drag the score down.

Pros: "Fast and beautiful car."

Cons: "AC and paint will cost money."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"High points for the beautiful look and excellent handling. The car has plenty of power and big beefy brakes. Gets lots of nice looks, with the pop up lights, spoiler, bear claw marks on the side, etc. For the speed it can go, it gets pretty good mileage too, about 23 on the highway. Now for the less positive stuff. The paint wears down/off quickly. The AC needs frequent re-charging. The engine develops various problems that the mechanic simply couldn't fix. The car holds 2 people easily, but the back seat is a joke. And it stopped being made in 2000, so as time goes on, good luck finding spare parts. Overall, glad I bought it, with an average grade of a B."

Extremely entertaining

Pros: "Rocket, fun to drive, fast"

Cons: "activeaero makes it hard to get coilovers"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"You can't beat the AWD paired up with a twinturboed V-6 engine.It just isn't happening unless you spend thousands more than this car costs. It rockets off the line is supported by aftermarket companies and looks great. It also gets good MPG considering that it has as much power as it does. The mitsu' handles great around corners and the spoiler even adjusts with the active-aero while you are driving! How cool is that? The leather seats are comfy and adjustable as well. Not the smoothest ride but its a sports car so who cares?"

"This car... Where do I start?! It has sooooo much power, while still handling better than any vehicle I've ever driven. I just bought mine for $4,800, with 94000 original miles, from a man who had 2 93 red vr-4s. I love this car so much, I get looks all the time in it. It's fast fun and affordable, this car has some serious pros, the only cons I've had so far was I was babying her too much and that made her run a little funny. My advice, if you want a really fun sports car that's gonna be easy on the wallet but still be able to destroy anything on the road, buy this car!!! You won't regret it."

Best car!

"Ive owned a 94 SL for three years and decided to pick up a 93 vr4. I love these cars, they are a beautiful piece of work! They are really reliable if taken care of, they start up every time! I've never had any problems with my SL or VR4! And let me tell you, the VR4 is FAST! Great car for the money! I should say I wouldn't recommend it to a friend because I don't want to see anyone else driving one, keeps it rare ;)"

"This was a great car, very ahead of its time. The only trouble I had with it was the repair bills. Granted, it didn't break down often, but when it did it cost a lot to fix because the engine is so dense (have to move everything to fix anything). Finishing touch was a seized water pump that took out my timing belt. These are great cars, but will need a little TLC as they begin to age."
