1990 Mitsubishi Mighty Max Pickup 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


Review

My dad bought this truck and it has been absolutely amazing. We have loaded it WAY over it's rated capacities, both payload and towing, and it still took us through Jeep-only trails, through rivers and swamps, and other trails many trucks would deem "impassable." The truck has since been through an arson, sat for over a year, and started up immediately. Getting her back from the shop today! This truck has been beat to hell and taken every beating with a smile, asking for more. I couldn't ask for more from this truck. Currently at 180k, everything is still original except the clutch. Synchros starting to go out in 2nd gear (burnouts). Everything else works great!


Favorite Features

Amazing 4wd Sturdy as a rock Unbelievably reliable Handles anything you throw at it


Suggested Improvements

A higher quality interior would be nice. A bit bouncy when empty, but so is any truck.

Review

My husband bought this truck for $200 because of a computer problem. After the quick fix, this truck is running like a champ, but...every liquid in this truck leaks: oil, water, gas, and brakes...BUT IT WONT DIE! And my husband isn't the 'nicest' to cars, he slams it into gear, hits the gas hard, etc. He's pretty much is trying to kill this truck. The odometer stopped working waaaay before he even got it and it read 241,000 miles. It has to be way over 300,000 and it will probably will outlast my truck. IT JUST WON'T DIE! Mitsubishi did something right when they made this truck. I have even tried to blow the little 2.4 motor up, but I just can't. This truck is a warrior! It's the best little beat up truck ever!


Favorite Features

The good gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

It needs to have better seats and seatbelts that actually work.

Review

Right on, brothers! She was the best truck money could buy, and she'll never be replaced. I was the original owner of this 1990 white beauty, and to her accolade, she only left me sitting on the side of the road twice in all of our 211,000 miles. She didn't have much; no A/C, radio, power steering, or after 180,000 miles, a passenger side mirror... but she did have dignity and a sense of pride. Thanks Pearl!


Favorite Features

White on blue, AOL CD passenger mirror, stamped-in bottle openers located around bed and under hood, start-up smoke screen feature, true bucket seats (although only for a week) and ability to attract both men and women


Suggested Improvements

Mitsubishi should bring this truck line back with new 'retro' styling!!

Review

Was the best vehicle of its type when we bought it - we tried them all on the same day. Continues to excel and be ultra-reliable. Still has original clutch, brakes, bearings, hoses, etc. Starts on first turn every day - wouldn't hesitate to take it anywhere. Even in Las Vegas heat, never runs hot. Will keep it forever.


Favorite Features

Solid build - still no rattles or squeaks. Reliability and accessibility can't be beat. Quiet and comfortable.

Review

Today I sold my Truck. For over 12 years it never left me walking. This by far had to be the best vehicle I have every owned. It did a great job towing my 28' pontoon boat. The only reason I gave it up was the computer was going. It would take $700-$1,000 to fix. Could not find the part not even at the junk yard. I will miss this truck!


Favorite Features

Very Dependable. Great on gas.


Suggested Improvements

Parts avalibility should be improved.
