2006 Mitsubishi 380 DB Series II Platinum Edition 3.8 litre from Australia and New Zealand
Good looking, but below par
Have a piece a trim that constantly falls on my feet when driving after it has been replaced.
This vehicle is very thirsty. My TH Magna sedan gets 660km from a tank, whereas the 380 gets 430km.
Seat are uncomfortable.
Rather my TH Magna over this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The thirst of a car depends a great deal on how it is driven. You should see at least 560km per tank once the engine has loosened up. Uncomfortable seats mean you either didn't test drive the car properly or your buttocks have changed significantly since. You give this car a poor rating and yet you don't actually give much information at all. Do you actually OWN the car, or did you rent one and flog the guts out if it for a few days (may explain the consumption)?

Yeah I don't know if this is a very good review. My 380s fuel consumption is about on a par with my TJ Magna, which is about 560 odd depending on driving conditions, and I find my seats are superb. Have you been driving it long?

The magna has a larger fuel tank than the 380, how do you get 660 Km per tank of fuel, I only manage to get 450Km city driving.

I have a 2005 VRX and it is a beautiful car to drive.
The only fault has been the drivers window. I took it an auto electrician who said the 4 window switch was stuffed, so I went to the local Mitsi dealer who sold me one for $300. It didn't fix the problem and they wouldn't take it back, so I'm stuck with it (not happy). They ended up fixing it under warranty.
