Best Hatchback car!


The electric window of the driver seat, makes a load sound when opening. Before it was working 100%, now it sounds like I have a hammer hitting the interior frame of the door.

When climbing a steep hill, the car seems to heat up.

There is a limit or blind spot when looking between the front window and side window.

General Comments:

The comfort of the car is excellent! Has some advanced technology, especially from other Mitsubishi models and Japanese cars.

Steering/handling is alright, just try not to over do it on corners!

Body kits can be easily modified with Evo-kits :).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
