1993 Mitsubishi Colt GLI 1.8 16v


Very nice car, not recommended for a family


Gearbox was a pain when recently bought. I had to spend over $2,500 to repair it only two months after purchase.

Seats are not very comfortable and the trunk is not very big.

Driver's windows do not go up straight, needs a little hand help.

Revolutions per minute drop pretty much when the air conditioner turns on (like 500).

Valve rings and other 16 hydraulic spare parts (all the same) in engine that I don't know how to describe in english, were replaced at 100.000 Kms.

Here in Venezuela, spare parts are expensive.

General Comments:

Very fast car, goes from 0-100 kilometers in 8 seconds and it has performed a 210 kilometers high speed with the air conditioner on.

Very cheap in gasoline, 10 kilometers per liter.

Nice and cool air conditioner.

Very stable electric system.

Excellent grip in curves.

Barely no tire and brake wasting.

Very cute design, most attractive of its kind here in this country.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
