Worst car I've ever owned
First WOF (5 months after ownership, had passed WOF on purchase 1 month earlier), all 4 shocks leaking, had to be replaced + replace right front suspension arm, replace timing belt.
1 week after first WOF, torque converter stripped gearbox.
Combined total = $2800 to fix after 10,000 km put on the car.
2 months after first WOF, A/C compressor crapped out after an additional 1,500 km put on the car.
Total = $1700 to fix.
Digital clock/ stereo display intermittently will not work.
Worst car I've ever owned. Coming from having a trusty 1997 Toyota Corolla that I put 120,000 km on with never a hiccup, only required regular oil changes and brake replacements. Defied Canadian winters and worked perfectly through -35 weather never a blip.
The Legnum was purchased for $5,500 from a friend who had it checked prior to selling, was deemed to be tidy and an overall good car. After putting 12,000 km on it after 7 months and having it crap parts left and right, guzzle gas at a horrendous rate (even with majority highway driving), I am getting rid of it and getting a Toyota. Will never purchase a Mitsubishi again. Do NOT buy a Legnum. Ever.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
