1986 Mitsubishi Cordia AC Turbo 1.8 turbo petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Awesome Entry Level Turbo Coupe
Clutch plate went at 205,000 k's.
Exhaust went at 210,000 k's.
Fuel Injection started leaking at 212,000 k's.
Interior is perfect - save for a crack in the dash binnacle - which is very common in AU.
New suspension needed - very tired to begin with. Handling is good, but could be excellent.
Car run into it at 215,000 k's (minor frontal damage)
Great car. Flawed in many ways, but makes you feel good when you drive it. Brings a smile to your face daily.
Good pace, fair pickup and a smooth "jet" like power delivery. It could use more, but is enough to have some fun. Commodore drivers hate me, especially V6s. You can chop 'em...
Awesome seats, some of the most comfortable in the bracket and very supportive. Good enough to use in another car / project. A little cramped (I am 6'5"), but generally excellent in the comfort department. Heater is excellent, everything works (electrics wise)!
Several minor niggles as expected from a 22 year old car. Fairly reasonable to fix in terms of cost, just all happenning at once.
Check the car thoroughly before buying is the best advice I can give.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
