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.
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
