Bought the car used as a summer car for fun outings. There have been no maintenance issues. The car is peppy and responsive. The only down side is poor visibility to the rear when the top is up. I would buy the car again
Ten years and 55,000 miles, three batteries, 2 sets of tires. I just replaced the clutch which required the engine to be yanked and re-installed. The interior plastic is easily scratched - don't take dogs for a ride! Otherwise, the car has held up great. The Rockford Fosgate sound system is at 500 watts per channel is more than adequate with the subwoofer mounted in the back seat cushion. The car is very quick and agile on windy roads which makes it very fun to drive. Visibility out of the back window when the rood is up is limited by the small oval rear window, but at least it is glass and not Isinglass. The car is solid with no rattles after 10 years which is remarkable in and of itself, but being a convertible makes it even more impressive.
This is a really fun car to drive, The top comes down and back up in 18 seconds with no issues 12 years. Have not had a single repair in the 72,800 miles I have put on it. Replaced the Battery, Tires in 2013 and other than that nothing except the recommended services such as Oil Changes. Vandals sliced open the Convertible top in 2017 and I took it to a Company in Kansas City, KS under insurance. Top King specializes in that kind of work and it is flawless again. I have considered trading it in several times but can find nothing that I would like to have under 50k that would take its place. Paint is like new, some hazing on Headlight covers that I need to take to have detailed.
Fantastic lil' sports car that turns heads! I purchased this car on a whim, after it caught my eye on a dealer parking lot in Texas. (Sunset Pearlescent). But with such low milage (57000) for a 9 yr. old car and superb handling, styling and of course letting the top down, it was a no Brainer! This is a beautiful fun ride and according to the reviews, I will be enjoying this car for some time to come!
Bought 2007 in 2008 - w/ 8k miles as factory executive used car from local Mitsubishi dealer. Since I was unfamiliar w/ it I wasn't looking for this model - styling and Sunburst Orange color caught my eye. It is very economical to own and often get compliments. I have never owned a car for so long nor so many miles - love driving it w/ top down in the summer. Never driven in the winter - but it does have front wheel drive.
