1997 Mitsubishi Carisma LX 1.8 GDI


Reliable and economical family sedan


Nothing has gone wrong with the car.

Regular oil change at 165000km.

180000km service is VERY expensive at the dealer, due to the fact that it is combined 60000km & 90000km service (all fluids, timing belt and those Iridium plugs re replaced).

General Comments:

Car is very reliable - I've had no quirks or problems with the car during my ownership.

1.8 GDI engine /w manual transmission gives rather good performance for family sedan.

This car is far from thirsty: I've reached 5.2L/100km on Hwy with ease and my total average from past 12 months is 6.3L/100km.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
