1990 Mitsubishi Vanwagon 3dr Minivan


Review

Mitsubishi REALLY, REALLY screwed up by getting rid of these vans. Actually, Toyota and Nissan screwed up as well. (If you remember, Toyota had their model from '84-'89, Nissan '87-'90, Mitsubishi '87-'90). The 2.4L engine is super reliable (also shared with the Mighty Max Pick-up). The payload is excellent, the seating configuration is unmatched...even by minivans today! Overseas, these vans are still sold today...there are even Diesel models...wish I had one. They did a good job of isolating the engine noise, but there is a lot of wind noise that permeates into the cabin. There is enough power...for a 4- banger.


Best Features

Driving view (never drove a car/minivan with a better view of the road and driving position than this one), middle row captain's chairs, seating configuration, engine reliability, interior room.


Worst Features

More cabin insulation, Diesel model, improve aerodynamics, larger gas tank for greater range, ABS, airbags, leather interior, DVD entertainment system?...you know..all the fluff that minivans these days have..if only Mitsubishi would bring this model BACK!!!

1990 Mitsubishi Vanwagon 3dr Cargo Minivan


Review

The Mitsubishi is one of the most underated vans of its type in the US. People are not aware of the van due to its short stay here (1987-1990). Chrysler purchased the rights to the engine. This eliminated its import into the US. Overseas this van is still available(as the L300) and for good reason. It is incredibly reliable and comfortable to drive. The vans perfomance and utilty is unmatched for a van with its 3/4 ton payload capacity for these years. Taxi drivers and small business owners know. Like myself they know the longevity of the van and can see its effect as a means of delivering the goods or service they provide.


Best Features

3/4 ton capacity tilt wheel intermitent windsheild wipers bucket seats electric door locks remote dash lock release for hatch seat cloth is durable!


Worst Features

The aluminum heads are not too forgiving in an overheat situation. The aerodynamics of the van are not great in a heavy wind.
