I bought this car new in 1993. Was a camper and lived in it for 20 years. Only major problem was gasket between transmission and motor had to be replaced. After 332,000 miles I donated it, not because of any problems with it, but because I got something a little bigger.
That little car could have easily gone another 100,000 miles...no problem. I absolutely loved it.
Good bye old friend...wherever you are.
It was easy to drive, not bad on gas, comfortable and very reliable.
Bought with manual tr. ,used, 150K, with 2 valves blown, smoked heavily, fixed only 2 valves and head gasket, smoke didn't dissapear, was told all exhaust valves needed to be replaced. Major problem : if you have asian made Summit it has 90% parts of Mitsubishi Expo! Buy only parts that look like the one you have inside. When I asked for ignition rotor for Summit it was different from Expo, that coused a lot of problems. Starter the same fuel filter the same Always buy parts for both Expo and Summit and return the wrong ones. Remove fuse for seatbelts click manually save motors. Watch tranny fluid, had problem shifting, synchron was going bad - $ 1000.- job Shift slowly so clutch engages
30-33 mpg, good view, AWD, strong engine. I liked economy AWD, but would not buy again. Have clutch set so it engages higher, if you don't press all the way down before shifting, synchron suffers, don't drive on low fuel, EGR valve needs pressure from gasoline. it can overheat, even catch on fire !
Parts dealers, update your databases, customers can sue you for selling wrong parts !!!
