Mitsubishi RVR Reviews from Australia and New Zealand - Page 2 of 5
1994 Mitsubishi RVR space gear 2 litre turbo diesel
Don't buy a diesel version
Manifold cracked, required welding.
Being a 4 wheel drive had changed 4 new tyres within a period of 2 years.
Knocking sound in the automatic gearbox.
High consumption of fuel.
This model has low diesel technology and very noisy engine!
My first comment regarding this vehicle was on 28.07.2004.Some of you will be wondering why I had kept this RV for so long even though I had given a lot of negative comments. The reason being it has no resale value. For potential buyers of RV turbo diesel, please look for other petrol models of Mitsubishi. It will save you time and money. Best of luck mate!

Couldn't agree more with this chap. The diesel is slow and very uneconomical - I'm getting less than 25mpg and it drives like a slug.

I just don't get this, I've just purchased a 1996 turbo diesel and it's pretty good fuel economy is not bad, about 30 to 35 mpg. It's comfy, it's not that fast but not that slow either. Maybe I just got a good un.
1995 Mitsubishi RVR
RVR a real manly choice. I love driving it. Its seating arrangement is great. it gives plenty of room for use. I get reasonable mileage.
The multicommunication system is really confusing.
I really don't understand how to use it. could somebody help me?. I would like to know that can we play CD in it.
Thank you very much.

1997 Mitsubishi RVR Sportsgear X2 2.4 GDi
A modern mini-SUV that hides its true passion
There's no workbook manual available for this model.
The choice of either using the automatic or the tiptronic part of the INVECCS-II transmission is absolutely thrilling, especially with overtaking.
Because it's a bit high like a 4x4 it tends to over-steer through corners.
The car is a bit more sensitive to cornering than my previous car, which was easier to point in the direction I wanted to go.
Although a four-seater, the storage and passenger room is fantastic.
With the fully adjustable rear bench, rear seat passengers have o lot of head, shoulder and legroom, as much as the driver and front passenger.
Even though my other car is a seven-seater I still prefer the safety features of my current mini-SUV to the 1980's style of my old '90s Chariot.

No - you can't get a workshop manual, but you can get an Owners Handbook translated by JPNZ - $NZ56.25 online in NZ, $NZ55.00 from Techbooks, Newmarket, Auckland.
Also Stg19.95 from the UK. (Google Handbooks-Translated)

There was a pdf available as the car shares many components with the Chariot Grandis.
