"I've had this car for many, many years now- I've taken it on several road trips and driven in the city with it. It's up to 300,000 miles and still going strong! We keep up the maintenance on it, and the only real problem I've ever had was replacing the exhaust system, which is understandable considering how old the car is and how much I've used it. I always feel incredibly safe in this car and it's dependability makes up for the gas mileage. My friend just purchased a brand new Mitzubishi and she said she remembered how reliable and long-lasting my car is, she decided to buy a Mitzu herself."

"I have maintained it regularly with oil changes, tune-ups, timing belt, water pump etc...only problem I have had is oil leaks. Had one so bad it flooded all of the spark plugs till it finally lost power. But other than that, it has never broken down and I have driven it 167,000 miles. Would not consider getting another suv except for the gas mileage. I drive a lot in the city and purchased this just before gas prices started to sky rocket. 12 to 14 miles per gallon in the city! its time for something else."

My alltime favorite vehicle to drive!

"This is one vehicle that Mitsubishi should have continued building. It has been an extremely reliable vehicle with very little maintenance over the ten years we have owned it. We live in an area where body rust is an issue and this vehicle has held up very well with only light surface rust on the frame, nothing on the body."

"I have owed this SUV for 8 of its 11 years of service. I ahve put 125,000 miles on it. The only major repair it has need was a new fuel pump to be replaced. This was due to the fuel lines rsuting at the gas tank exit point. Other than brakes and tires, it has been problem free. 181,000 miles and still to this day does not burn oil."
