1996 Mitsubishi Lancer GLXi 1.6 from Sweden
Brakes had to be replaced.
A hole in the exhaust system.
Interior lights don't switch on when the driver door opens (they do when any other door opens).
Driver's seat heating doesn't work.
Car cost 10,000 SEK. Spent 6,000 on repairs after it failed annual inspection.
This car is certainly more comfortable than my previous car, a communist-era Skoda, but also much less charismatic. AC takes a while to get the heat up, but once it does, it works fine. Seats are fine.
At highway speeds, the engine revs ~3500 RPM and makes quite a lot of noise. There's also way too much wind noise. Fuel economy is not as good as I had expected.
A decent car for its price. Good for short trips; noise levels gets tiresome on longer trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
