1996 the best year

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL 2dr Coupe

I love this car. I drove Fiero's for year and while that was a fun car to drive this car is it's big nasty brother. When I first got it 2 years ago it took me a few days to get use to the incredible power that this car has. My car has over 250,000 miles on it and on my drive from SC to NY I hit a stretch of road that was basically 50 miles of open road with little to no traffic. I looked down and did not realize I was traveling over 100mph because the car was so smooth...Even with over 200,000 miles on it and doing 110mph the car wanted to just go faster....and I did LOL

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 Turbo 2dr Coupe AWD

I really enjoy this car. I had a 3000GT in college, gave it to my brother and now 5 years later I purchased another. I really enjoy just about everything about the car. If able ensure you have records of all the maintenance done to the vehicle. It seems as if you can't fix anything on this vehicle for less than $1,000 unless you can do it yourself (engine has to be pulled to do almost anything). That said, if you can find a good one with paperwork showing the 60K and 120K (if required) go for it! Something to look out for is for 2nd gear synchro's tend to wear out. Fixable, but again about $1,200. Who ever said that they can fix one for under that did it themselves or never owned one.

My baby (3000gt) is also Amethyst Pearl and I love it. I don't see myself ever getting rid of it. I live in NH, before the bad weather comes in November I store it away until April.

Best car mitsubishi built

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT 2dr Coupe

I bought this car new in 1996 have put more than 352,000 miles on it still get 25 to 30 MPG no oil leaks or burning.Had no major problems just normal wear and tear. Best car ever built Mitsubishi need to bring it back.




My first sports car

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT 2dr Coupe

I have owned this car for 7 years and put it through 80,000 miles. My 3000gt has been mechanically reliable. There aren't many cars on the road that look as good the '94-'96 3000GTs. I love my car.




220,000 miles and counting!

I use the car for commuting. Its 5M transmission and 222HP engine provide good performance. It definitely is not a dragster, but it is fast and sure-footed. It handles well under all weather conditions, including snow. I recently replaced the cloth seats with leather, the factory wheels with sport wheels, and the transmission. It has required some expense to keep it running and looking well, but it seems to have been worthwhile. People admire it everywhere I go, and I enjoy driving it. After all the miles, it still has no rattles--NONE.
