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!
Amazing 4wd Sturdy as a rock Unbelievably reliable Handles anything you throw at it
A higher quality interior would be nice. A bit bouncy when empty, but so is any truck.
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!
The good gas mileage.
It needs to have better seats and seatbelts that actually work.

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!
White on blue, AOL CD passenger mirror,

(although only for a week) and ability
to attract both men and women
Mitsubishi should bring this truck line
back with new 'retro' styling!!
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.
Solid build - still no rattles or
squeaks. Reliability and
accessibility can't be beat. Quiet
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!
