My 1994 Mitsubishi Expo is the car we always take when antiquing, vacationing or anything else. it is the car of choice when driving with friends. The backseat is comfortable for average size women. The driver's seat sits high and straight backed for a short driver. The only part I've replaced besides regular maintenance is the motor for the interior heater at 173,000 miles. i predict the Expo will have a fan club following as did the orig. VW Beetle.
The reliability, gas mileage, unusual styling, and carrying flexiblilty. The seats go all the way down and I've never bought anything that hasn't fit in it.
None. Mitsubishi missed the boat when they stopped sending them to the U.S. market. They will be sorry because they were ahead of the trend for good small cars, and now they will have to play catch-up. The Outlander does not come close as a replacement.
I recently sold my beloved 1994 Expo
to my younger brother and I regret my
decision. I loved that car. I have a
Ford Windstar right now and it is
simply too big for me. I loved the
seven seats and small size of my
Expo. I didn't do any repairs other
than maintainence to it the five years
I had it. Awesome vehicle. Does
anyone have one for sale? I want
another one or a new one just like it!
Small size with room for seven, easy
to manuever, reliablity...
The Expo has proven itself
as a very fun, dependable, and useful.
Whether your after groceries or going
on a vacation, the Expo really has
something for you.
The luggage rack and tie downs are
great for hauling extra luggage,
lumber, or the family canoe.
The engine and transmission are very
reliable. Under the hood sits a peppy 4
cylinder 2.4 liter engine, with enough
power to get the job done, while not
The Expo is classified as a sport
wagon, but really has many
characteristics of a mini-van, without
the price tag, and with better gas
mileage. If your looking for a
dependable and versatile used vehicle,
then the Expo is your style!
You can slide the middle set of seats
forward or backward, and flip both the
sets of rear seats so that
they are folded flat. Or you can slide
the middle set forward and recline it
all the way back flat, so that it meets
the rear seat. This leaves a large
cushioned bed-like area.
More leg room in passenger front seat
for 6'+ tall people.
As our family grew we were in the
market for an economical, reliable car
that was smaller and more efficient
than the run of the mill mini-van. Our
94 expo fit the bill perfectly. With
the 2.6l, 4cyl and 5-speed, we got a 27
mpg car that fit in our garage with
room to spare. Almost 9 yrs later with
no repairs other than brakes,
batteries, tires, and wiper blades, we
finally traded it in.
Our only regret is that there is really
nothing like it currently in the US
market that we can replace it with.
fun to drive (for a mini van)
My Expo has been fantastic! I bought
this 1994 model in 1998 and have had
it for 4 years. It is nearing 100,000
miles, and the only money (besides
regular oil changes) that I have put
into it was a month ago when I had new
brakes. It has been running with
original equipment for 8 years.
