Review of the 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Eye-catching styling, AWD performance, standard anti-lock brakes.

  • Cons

    Muddled interior and high price.

  • What's New for 1997

    A value-leader base model is introduced. It has less than stellar performance and we think that it's embarrassing that this car is in the same lineup as the earth-scorching VR-4.

1996 the best year

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT

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

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.

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT

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

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!

Vehicle: 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT

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.

We have owned three 3000gt's so far. My husband has a gorgeous low mileage '93 vr4, we recently sold a '93 red sl and we found my '96 in Houston two years ago. I LOVE MY CAR !!! I drive 50 miles highway to and from work 4 days a week. This car handles wonderfully in bad weather. We've had very few problems with her even though she has high miles.
