Was my first love and first truck and the best I've ever had so far, I had to put a lot of work into it only because I drove the thing so hard, it was like the little engine that could it just kept going and going. It was a 4 cylinder 5 speed stick working heat and air when I got it the body was dent free but it had its share of rust, I wish that the brakes didn't go out on it and had a tragic death in a ugly accident but may it rest in peace.
Manual transmission, heat and air
Maybe a rear bumper, good brake lines, and for the love of God cupholders
My 1993 Mitsubishi Mighty Max Pickup has been a good truck. My mother bought it brand new. She gave it to me when I got back from training in the army. I drove it from Augusta, GA to Nashville, TN once and it performed fine. It's been a very good truck for the past twelve years. We've been keeping up on most repairs.
I bought this truck 10 years ago and it
has been a workhorse. It was a basic
model: no ac, no power locks or
windows, no power steering, manual
transmission; it didn't even have a
radio or rear bumper! I added those.
But this Mighty Max has been the most
reliable of all the cars I've owned in
the past 10 years. Just needed the
usual new battery, alternator, tires,
brakes, etc. I've got 120k on it now,
and I don't plan to sell it. We use it
for hauling everything. Don't know
what we'd have done without it. It's
just now starting to show its age, but
I hope I can keep it at least another
five years. Great little truck!
Longevity. It keeps going, and going,
Cupholders! Can't tell you how many
times I spilled something on me. Air
conditioning! I knew going in it
didn't have a/c, but no car should be
sold without it! Blind spots are a
little difficult to check.
