I have owned a few cars in my time, but this is one of my all time favorites. It seats four, although I use it as a commuter. Mine is a five speed manual and gets over forty five miles per gallon; I change the oil religiously and put a high flow air filter in it to maximize efficiency. Also most of my driving is highway; I suspect city drivers will average forty mpg. Anyway it's a fun little car with plenty of pep that is fun to drive while being super fuel efficient. I have driven it from one twenty k to one seventy k and have only had to replace the battery and the distributor. If you are lucky enough to find one, grab it!

This was the FIRST new car I ever
bought!! it was PERFECT for what I
needed. Great mileage! Great
dependability! (Mitsubishi made!)
I bought a base model. 4spd manual
tranny. Peppy little bugger! One more
thing... and it probably proved
LIFESAVING in the Deer country that I
live in.... THE HEADLIGHTS ARE
AMAZING!!! With the high beams on, I
can see so well, you won't believe it!
I tell everyone about it! THEY ARE THAT
GOOD!! Great little inexpensive car.
Same as Mitsubishi Mirage, and Eagle
