1993 Mitsubishi 3000GT Base 3.0 from North America
Terrible mistake --- You'll regret it!
Even when I first got the car, I knew it was messed up.
The owner said it was lifter tick, but I found out down the road it was a spun bearing, a VERY common problem with these motors.
Needles to say, it was cheaper to replace the engine rather than rebuilding it. Let me tell you, NO ONE wants to work on these cars, so good luck trying to find a mechanic.
After that got replaced, the seals by the camshaft leaked a good amount of oil on the timing belt. The motor was rebuilt. Then the starter went out. A week later, a fuel injector goes bad on me. A couple of days after, the engine jumped the time and bent/broke the valves in Cyl. #3.
Let me tell you, that that was the last straw. I bought the car knowing it had a problem, yes, but this is one problem after another. Can't go one week without an issue. Can't really say about how it drives, because I never had the damn car running long enough to get the feel for it.
The interior dash is cracked, I mean bad. Torn from left to right, and the vents popped out. Again, a very common thing for it.
It's a bit uncomfortable for tall drivers. I'm 6'4" and I'm a bit cramped inside.
Dude, it's THE WORST car I've ever bought. I'll take my old Z31 300ZX any day over this clunker.
I had to drop out of school, and am on the brink of losing my job, because I don't have a dependable car.
It's one nightmare followed by another. I lost all my sanity and money over it.
I think I'll be going back to Fords. Heck, I'll even get a V6 Mustang stick to fill the void this car left.
The car looks sexy as hell, but that's it. Stay very far away from it, and whatever you do, DO NOT buy one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
