"96 with A/C and automatic w overdrive. 27 mpg on highway. It is my main daily driver, its been to Florida, Chicago 2x, although not the most comforatble, its very reliable, peppy, easy and economical to drive. BUilt like a tank, does all I need. Bought at a salvage auction for $600.00 at 63,000 miles. Wish cab was extended"
"Being a history buff I liked this truck from the start. Just the name Mitsubishi intrigued me like one of their greatest achievements in the world of aviation - the A6M Zero fighter of World War Two. I thought of this truck just like I did the plane; lightly constructed and extremely reliable.
When I bought this truck used it had been repossessed, and had 22000 miles on it. I was told by a Toyota mechanic that I would hate him if he told me all the problems I was going to have with it. Well that was in 1995, and I have not had a serious problem yet. Knock on wood! Sure I have had to change some parts out, but nothing that would not have been changed on any other vehicle with the same mileage and use.
My Mighty max has now been relegated as a stand by vehicle, but in the beginning it was my main mode of transportation. In college I used it to make food deliveries; where I easily put 1000 miles on it in a month. I cannot say anything bad about this "little truck" mechanically; the reliability has been out of this world."
"Bought new in 1990 with 2.8 mi. and have been driving it ever since, now 163,000. It may be a 1/2 ton but I have had 20 sacks of 90 pound cement in it, 1 time. At 21 years old it will still do over 100 miles an hour. No major maintenance has been needed. Best little truck ever!"
