2004 Mitsubishi Space Star DID 1.9 DID
Reliable family friend. Good value spec
Lighter seats stain terribly. Even clean water stains them. Choose black if you can.
Door hinge stops squeaks and squeaks more if you oil them.
Quite a bit of road noise from rear on non smooth surfaces.
Good acceleration / performance, but lurches a bit on bends.
Fits family in well.
We are very pleased except for the interior fabric and squeaky doors. This is a great car for the money, but I was seriously disappointed just after purchase to find out that it actually has a Renault engine. Buying Japanese should mean buying Japanese not French Scenic under the bonnet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I wrote this review 5 years and 200,000 kms ago the Space star is still going strong and has never had any significant issues. Unbelievably reliable! requiring only oil/filter changes, pads and tyres, + belts at 100k - just ordered a Mitsubishi ASX and also own a Colt. I don't dare to try other manufacturers any more. If you can get a second hand 2004 Space Star DID with 100k on the clock it should be good for the same again.
