2007 Mitsubishi Nativa GLS 3.0 petrol from Kuwait
Cheap price = cheap quality
1. Known fault, not addressed by manufacturer: at around 80 to 100 kms/hour a distinct whistling sound emits from the sub-standard rubber seal of the front windscreen, when air leaks into the car.
2. Driver side rear view motorized exterior mirror gets stuck half way when opening.
3. Rear passenger floor very uneven, looks and feels like a badly paved pedestrian sidewalk.
4. Cheap fabric and carpeting produces static (I never had this problem with 3 previously owned cars, by other manufacturers)
Good price for a 4x4 in its class (I paid Kd.5000 + KD.250 for the fog lights/roof rails and wood finish dashboard)
Cheap audio system (cassette deck.) Why do CD-players come as an option? They are so dirt-cheap these days.
Clumsy road handling
Cheap fabric and carpeting
You need to really put your foot down on the brake to halt the vehicle.
Extremely unsatisfactory initial engine pick up
Does not come with floor mats - wow! is this so expensive these days?
If you want a cheap 4x4, this is a good choice - but that's exactly what you get - a cheap quality product!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Wow - I went off to the Mitsubishi dealership today and looked at the Nativa GLS and was quite impressed with price and overall image of the car. Now I am not too sure!

I am getting a really good price for the 2007 Mitsubishi Nativa here in Dubai. But am very undecided after reading all these comments. Can anyone help?
