Faults:

Nothing! I've owned the car for about 4 years, driving it for 150.000 km (about 94.000 miles). I only replaced the rear exhaust and the battery! (And some tires after 80.000km .....).

General Comments:

Excellent car. Powerful engine, with good economics. It always starts, the colder the better. Very comfortable seats, and nice extras. A bit noisy when driving above the 90 km/hour, but acceptable.

Never had any better or reliable car, and if Mitsubishi had a station (wagon) version of it I would buy it immediately.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also own this car, and I have found that it runs great and is also economic on fuel.

The Australian 1988 colt is an icon.

I had a Colt too, and drove it 100.000 km without any problem at all. (I bought it second hand at 70.000 km.) Never had a car so reliable as this Mitsubishi.
