This is a sporty car, not true sports car but that being said, you won't find another 4 seat convertible under 30K with the same features, quality, value and performance! My 4 cylinder 161 hp peppy enough for me, and compared to MiniCooper, this rear seat roomy enough for my 2 kids, 9 and 5 years old, and this trunk can hold a folding single stroller or a bag of golf clubs! NO WAY in Mini! Plus, standard safety features include: ABS, disc brakes on all wheels, traction and stability control, six airbags, steel doors and crumple zones. Other standards: Bluetooth, aux. jack, Sirius radio, 650 watt radio, 6 CD, subwoofer, sportronic shifting, HID headlights, rear safety camera for backing. WOW!
Best warranty (36 month, 36,000 bumper to bumper, 10 year, 100,000 powertrain) in the business, the 19 second push button drop top, overall 22 mpg on a 161 hp 4 cyl engine, and the price under $29K for all standard features on the GS! My first Mitsu and quality so far seems on par with Honda, Toyo!
The blind spot on convertible top is big, and rear window minuscule too. Expect that in a ragtop though. Optional blind spot safety alert system like Mazda makes could help this problem. Other than that, everything else very good and truly impressed by Mitsubishi!
