Review

Let me tell you. After buying the car new what has impressed me most is the cost to maintain the vehicle. This was my first Mitsubishi, and after owning several Toyota products, what a welcome relief at the parts counter. This car is fast stock, but it's fun to add something new now and then to liven up the atmosphere out on the highway. 120k miles on the clock, and still strong.


Best Features

Turbo - enough said. Wooooooshhhhhhh!


Worst Features

Turbo spoiler really obstruts the view at times.

Review

GS-T..I bought this car new in 98 and have 62K miles on it. I have only changed the tires and battery. Replaced the filter with K&N and thats it. Very fast and great car to own. Drive to work every day at 90 to 100+MPH (early morning highway) for 6 years and engine does not complain. Top speed I have had it at 145. I have recently went to mobile one oil just to keep things trouble free. If you can get one that has not been beat on grab it!


Best Features

210 HP. Able to turn in and out of traffic with ease.


Worst Features

Give the engine get more air to cool off the turbo. Runs very hot..

Review

This car has served me well through several yers of outside sales work. It is fun to drive; unique and sharp to look at; easy to get in and out of; sound system is awesome; low maintenance and the quality in workmanship is good.


Best Features

Horsepower is good, stereo is very good and I really love the body style.


Worst Features

Timing belt change MUST happen before the recommended 60,000 mile mark. Should be a recall in my opinion. I did experience damage at 58,000 miles because of a stretched belt.
