2010 Mitsubishi Nativa GLS 3.0 petrol from United Arab Emirates
GOOD to drive
Had to replace brake pads after 3 years, which is fine.
Replaced tyres after 4 years!!! Because I didn't drive much on off road.
Anyway, the ABS sensor and 4x4 sensor is on at all times. Been like that since 2 years. I didn't get it fixed, as everything was fine and it was expensive to fix the sensor light.
Then in my 5th year of driving my A/C stopped cooling and car made a noise while driving. Found out the problem was that the A/C compressor gave way. I'm shocked since it's not an old car, and I got it brand new and it's been fine since. The cost to replace the compressor is 3000dh, which is crazy. So I'm stuck up at the moment.
Looking at different options to fix the compressor, OR to buy a second hand compressor, OR to buy a duplicate one. Really confused.
Well to begin with the car is comfortable to drive and does OK on off road. Speed and acceleration is not a plus since it's quite slow. Also the fuel consumption is bad. My car with a full tank could only do about 400km on busy roads while it does 500km on highways.
Overall it's a fine car, but the problem is expensive spare parts when compared to Toyota, Honda and Nissan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
