1991 Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.5 petrol from Kenya
Had to replace the CV joints and the rear brake at about 250,000km.
Had to change the starter brushes most recently.
On cold starts it's a bit difficult to start the car immediately. When the engine has been running for a long time (e.g. for about an hour), it becomes difficult to start the car until after about 30 minutes.
I may need to replace the alternator, since the battery does not seem to charge properly.
Besides that it's a really brilliant and reliable car.
The car is generally fast and easy to run... low consumption, especially on long drives.
It's very comfortable to drive and doesn't seem to breakdown midway. At least it will get you home.
Runs faster than most new rides around, especially on highways.
The car gives me about 10,000km before any service is required.
The car does not smoke.
I've had to change the lead wires for better performance, and it worked.
Changed the differential oil immediately I got the car, and the ride doesn't disappoint.
It's a car I'd recommend for anyone shopping for a first car...
It's brilliant and comfortable.
Its clock speed is 200kph, and it does well to keep up with other fast cats on the road...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
