I bought the four cylinder LX after
comparing to other cars. After
driving for a couple of months I think
I should have gone back to Mitsubishi.
The automatic used with the four is
from Ford, same one used on the
Contour/Mystique line. Not very smooth
shifting, quite jerky. Dealer
recommended aftermarket cooler so that
transmission wont burn out so soon.
Talking to others with this car that
seems to be a common problem.
Been to service a couple of times for
warranty work on interior panels and
that in window antenna. Replaced rear
glass due to faulty antenna (radio
would go out when rear defrost is on.)
Control layout and oscillating ac
vents. style. Price.
Better transmission. Dont use Ford
parts. More front legroom.
