1997 Mitsubishi Legnum VR-4 2.5 TT
Practical performance. Love it
Radiator hose had a tiny split, so needed replacing, but that only cost £10. Other than that, it's been bulletproof.
The Legnums redeeming features include 260 BHP, permanent 4WD, Active Yaw Control (same as in the mitsi EVO), a clever semi-auto gearbox & very aggressive looks.
This car is fantastic, it's very quick & very practical all in one, it's the best car I have ever owned. It's such a joy to drive as it's very quick & holds the road extremely well, it will crease the road before it lets go. Plus that fact you can get 5 people in it plus the monthly shopping as well, is a bonus.
Its only problems that I can think of are the seats are very comfy, however they don't hold you very well in the corners. There's also the fuel economy; you can get about 28 mpg on a motorway, but with a heavy right foot that will drop into the mid tens, but if you want good fuel economy, go & buy a Prius.
I love this car & enjoy taking it anywhere, and normally find an excuse to as well. My advice to anyone thinking of getting one, DO IT. If you can live with being on first name terms with the petrol station staff.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
