Comfortable, practical and reliable, what more could you want?
Hole in the exhaust, which needs to be welded, and the window wiper linkage came loose, which is an easy fix. Other than that, the car has been great.
In 4 months, I've put on over 20k kms, and it never once let me down.
Nice driving position with room for 3 adults in the back no problem.
The engine is quite rev happy, especially when it gets over 4500rpm and the second set of cams kick in. I've seen off maybe bigger cars in this little baby.
For a 91 car, it has more mod cons than most newer cars like air con, electric windows front and rear, electric mirrors, electronic climate control and power steering.
Fuel economy is pretty good with 40+ mpg motorway driving and 30+ mpg around town; not bad for a carb engine?
All in all, I like this car and will only sell it to get a newer model Lancer/Colt/Mirage with an efi engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
