Summary:

HUGE disappointment

Faults:

The car rattles a lot.

Power windows had to be replaced.

The automatic transmission felt like I was driving a tractor.

The drive is very sluggish.

Rev the car and all it does is make noise.

The previous owner claims this is how the performance is supposed to be for this vehicle.

General Comments:

Overall this vehicle is a disappointment. An acquaintance owns a 1985 galant and its way better than this heap of junk. Over the years, Mitsuibishi has slowly lost that touch. The car felt like this since the day I purchased it. The damn dealers have no clue, most of the problems were fixed at my friends garage. I will never take this vehicle on long trips, come to think of it, I even hate taking short trips in it. It feels like the car was assembled with quality taking a back seat.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Summary:

Nice car, just wish the spares where a little cheaper

Faults:

The problems started with a few vibrations, the source of which could not be determined. The switch console on the drivers side door started vibrating, followed by some vibration from the cassette player. The front axle broke down at 140,000 km and had to be replaced.

General Comments:

Car is fun and comfortable to drive.

Love the shape.

Boot is quite spacious for a car of its size.

Spare parts are significantly higher compared to rivals and this gives it a bad resale value.

Love the looks of the car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
