2008 Mitsubishi Colt CZ2 1.5 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland


Avoid at all costs


AMT gearbox needs £700 repair after 29K miles, just outside the warranty.

Driver's seat height adjustment won't stay in the up position. It goes down over time.

Boot gets stuck closed.

General Comments:

Very economical on petrol, but very expensive on repair bills.

It's nippy around town, but a fault on the gearbox means it won't engage into reverse.

I contacted my local Mitsubishi dealer to ask for a good will gesture to help pay towards the £700 repair costs, but they only offered £30. I thought I was buying into a reputable and reliable brand, and I was wrong. I would stay clear of all Mitsubishi cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
