Summary:

Sub-par reliability, good otherwise

Faults:

Oxygen sensor.

Engine computer kept faulting.

Transmission acted oddly at times.

Rattles developed time after time once driven over 10,000 miles.

Dashboard light bulbs blew out often.

General Comments:

I really liked this car.

I found out it was made in April 2004, one of the firsts made in the USA, which means quality control was better than average. This explains the recommendation from the ex-Mitsubishi assembly employee to avoid touching any car made after May 2004. Was also told the double overhead camshaft model was unreliable.

A shame it wasn't too reliable, though I must admit I enjoyed it more than the Accord 1995 I had.

Car was bought and used in the US.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
