I love my Laser. I bought it primarily for the Mitsubishi 4g63 motor under the hood, then fell in love with it. It picks right up and goes when I want it to, handles great, runs beautiful, and has so much potential as a "fix-it- up" tuner car. Practically turbo-ready (as all 4g63 motors are), sleek looks and comfortable to ride in (the front seat). I thought I was buying a cheap replacement for my now-dead 1990 Eclipse, and found a car 10 times better.
Quick response to steering, gas & breaks. Comfortable & not too flashy.
if you want a car that is most definitly
fun to drive, quick, and and handles
great buy one of these.
If you NEED a vehicle with lots of
space for traveling or what not then
this probably isn't the best choise!
These cars probably fall in the
performance two seater category.
My favorite three features are turbo,
turbo and turbo. Without the turbo
these cars are just NOT worth the buy.
I've owned two of these now and
wouldn't consider buying one unless it
That pesky timing belt problem!
let me make one suggestion, TAKE THESE
CARS TO A CERTIFIED MITSUBISHI
DEALERSHIP!!! if its turbocharged
mitsubishi makes the engine. timing

replacing the t-belt is no walk in the
I bought the car (Electric Blue
Metallic) with dealer installed ground-
effects, alloy rims and dark tinting.
It looked sleek and sexy. It was a very
good performer. I got it up to about
130 in the Utah desert while on a 7
month tour I took right after I bought
I only rated it 8 for performance
because of the 135 hp engine, still it
was agile and glued to the road.
But it had one fatal problem...the
TIMING Belt broke 3 times. The first
time I was idling so I just replaced it
and drove away, the second time I put
in a new engine, and the 3rd time I
gave it to my gear-head brother. Except
for the timing belt a great car.
Sleek and sexy looks (in custom trim),
great for touring or zooming around
town. Good sound system.
No sports type car should have a timing
belt in it. Metal chains only please.
