This is a really fun car to drive, The top comes down and back up with no issues 10 years. Have not had a single repair in the 63,500 miles I have put on it. Replaced the Battery, Tires in 2013 and other than that nothing except the recommended services such as Oil Changes. Update: in 2016 the Convertible top developed a small rip near one of the ribs on the Drivers side. Mind you this car has sit outside in Kansas City Winters and Summers since 2007. I went to a local place called Top King. Had one panel in Drivers side seat Leather repaired & Complete Top replaced. They did a great job and good as new. Mechanically absolutely nothing other than Oil/Change service done at intervals recommended in manual. Dealer went out of business but found great Factory service center on other side of town.
Fantastic lil' sports car that turns heads! I purchased this car on a whim, after it caught my eye on a dealer parking lot in Texas. (Sunset Pearlescent). But with such low milage (57000) for a 9 yr. old car and superb handling, styling and of course letting the top down, it was a no Brainer! This is a beautiful fun ride and according to the reviews, I will be enjoying this car for some time to come!
Bought 2007 in 2008 - w/ 8k miles as factory executive used car from local Mitsubishi dealer. Since I was unfamiliar w/ it I wasn't looking for this model - styling and Sunburst Orange color caught my eye. It is very economical to own and often get compliments. I have never owned a car for so long nor so many miles - love driving it w/ top down in the summer. Never driven in the winter - but it does have front wheel drive.
I bought my car brand new in 2007 and have been nothing but disappointed since. I had to take it back to the dealer 3 times in the first month, and had to fight to get anything fixed on it. I noticed some slight tears in my top at about 60,100 miles and when I took it to the dealer and they told me the car was no longer under warranty even though I purchased it with 596 miles on it. They refused to fix it even though it is obvious its their mistake. All I can say is I will never buy any Mitsubishi again.
Stereo controls on the steering wheel.
Better customer service, better quality of product.
Loaner car should be provided for all warranty repairs over 24 hrs.
This will be my 4th Mitsubishi and I've said it before and I'll say it again...they are highly under rated! I have no complaints about any of them. I had two 30000GTs, then I bought an 06 Elipse that I loved and now I will be picking up my new 2007 GT convertible and I can't wait! It only has 25K miles on it so it's practically new. Its red with black leather and 6speed! I'm going to have alot of fun this summer!!!!
I know already from reading all the reviews that this will be another great car from Mitsubishi!
