Rust. It eventually gets most old cars. I had engine problems also, and had oil leaks, that I had repaired. But now there is little to no oil pressure, and the solution is more expensive than the car. Other troubles I had were the ECU, brakes that "came loose" and needed repair more than once, and rust in the struts/under-carriage. Still, I loved the car. Drove nicely and gave me the sports car feeling, in a front wheel vehicle that went great in snow. Lots of room with the rear seats down, for cargo. Two seater for people, for sure, anyway. Mine was basic, with the 1.8L engine, no supercharger, and it was NOT quick, more like an economy car, but still VERY fun to drive. I loved my laser, but it's time to part with it.
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
belts are known to go out on these and
replacing the t-belt is no walk in the
