I have not had any bad experiences my 3000GT yet. It performs well, and IS an eye catcher. I have always wanted a VR4. I've heard some of the stories about some owners having some major problems with their cars, but 90 percent of these owners are people who chose to modify their cars, and anywhere from 20 to 80 percent of the engine components are no longer stock engine parts. There's nothing wrong with doing mods, but remember, if you are going to comment on a vehicle's reliability, it should be one that is stock.
If Mitsubishi's going to continue in the car market, then they had better get their act together real quickly. Because, even though the new Eclipse is cute looking, it's still a "girls" looking type car. Mitsubishi needs the 3000GT to return!
