1992 Eagle Summit 1.2 from North America
A reliable and dependable performer
Problems with the Constant Velocity Joints, required replacements three times.
Gas tank replaced due to a leak on the top of the tank.
Overall performance is quite good.
Reliable and dependable second car. I feel I got my money out of this car, however recently repairs have been costly and I'm now lookin at purchasing another vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Re: 1992 Eagle / Mitsibishi Summit Wagon.
I have a Summit Wagon and it has over 170,000 km. It is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned (previous Ford Explorer; Mazda 626)
The only thing that has been a pain is a broken rear sliding door mount which was very expensive ($800 Canadian) to replace.
Other minor hassles involve body parts: turn signals don't always turn off automatically (cost to fix: $300) and rear wiper washer motor broken ($150).
But, apart from oil changes, she runs really fine. I am looking for another used Summit and may consider the All wheel drive version. Gas mileage is good.

I owned a 92 Summit from 6/92 until 1/98. Like a fool decided I would like an older Pickup truck so I bought an 89 S10 and sold the Summit to a young collage student. Oh how I have kicked myself all these years when I think of the price of gas, On a long trip I could get almost 48 miles per gallon.
