1987 Mitsubishi Mighty Max 2.0 gas from North America
Good reliable pickup!
Nothing wrong! But it is true that it has not enough power for high speed and mountain driving.
Very good gas mileage for a normal driving, and it still goes about 28 miles per gallon on its original engine with current 250,000 miles on this 1987 Truck (20 years old)! Fairly trouble free, and no major problems. Well, it is not for a lady to drive, and it is not for a young man to drive. If you are a good driver, this truck can go forever!
Yes, it is also true. This is a slow truck, but it is very reliable. In a matter of fact, my Mighty Max is far more reliable than my Toyota Camry.
I have a Toyota Camry, fairly new (1992), it's milege is only about 160,000 miles, but everything is falling down!
Costs me thousand and thousand dollars to fix it!
My Mighty Max only cost me about $50 per year to maintain it! It can drives to New York from San Francisco, go for many circles around all 50 states, again and again, and it still runs forever.
But, it does go slow, especially driving in mountains!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Year to date 2010; I have over 300,000.00 miles on my 1987 Mitsubishi Mighty Max 2.0 engine truck with manual transmission. This old work horse just keeps going, and now has been handed down to my son, who has now put on a new paint job, and repaired the old seats. Yes it is a slow car with no bells or whistles, and my thought is why give a first time driver a truck with too much power? If Mitsubishi brought this model back, I would purchase it immediately. They should have named this truck Hercules.

Wow that’s amazing, you got 300k miles out of it and it’s still going. I went with my brother in 1987 to buy a new Mighty Max and he paid $4,900 for it. The thing had zero options, but it was a great little truck. Unfortunately he traded it in for a 2 door Mitsubishi Montero in 1989 which was also a great truck. I believe that was around $9k. It’s a shame you can’t get things like that for so cheap anymore.
