The moment I drove this car I bought it. It has stunning looks and handling, awesome exhaust note and the head turning appeal. Yes my top leaks but a small price to pay for such a exciting car. I have 93,000 on it and all original parts, I have never had a more reliable car. I drive this car every day and it never gets old I recommend this car to anyone who wants a sexy sport convertible that gets great gas mileage.
Bought the car off a lease last October
and it was almost showroom condition.
It's red with a tan top, tan leather
and an Alpine stereo system. Thankfully
I have not had any problems with my top
leaking. I live in Florida and deal
with some nasty thunderstorms almost
every afternoon. The performance from
the 2.4L is average at best.The top
feature is very nice and the car looks
great with it up or down. I get about
25 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. The
back seat is useless.
I would never recommend anyone to buy a
Mitsubishi. They are cheaply made and
cost a fortune to fix. Everything
breaks from the door handles to the
timing belt (which most people have
said they have never had to replace,
but in a Mitsubishi you have to).
Fun to drive with the top down, but
like the others, major roof leaks on
the drivers side! All parts have been
replaced, weatherstripping, etc, but
nothing's worked. Seems the top
doesn't fit snug (may have warped?)
when shut & water seeps in & pools in
the molding piece & pours out of the
drivers side top latch & where the
molding meets the drivers side window.
The last time it rained I had a major
flood & am still drying out the car!
The dealership is having it repaired by
a convertible top roof leak specialist
on 3/31/03, well, we'll see (I'm not
holding my breath!)
