Mitsubishi Colt 1.5 DI-D CZ3 3d (2006/56) - Owner Review

The wonderfully wide doors, the large door mirrors, the nice way the rear seats fold easily, the sliding rear seat, the space in the rear, the roof spoiler, the alloys, the size of it, the shape of it, need I say more? Minor niggles are the parcel shelf doesn't automatically drop down when using the boot, and the front seats don't return to the position you had before you allowed access to the rear, nothing major at all though. As I've said, minor niggles

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I stand out from the crowd, she looks sporty and funky.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it, dad says I should've got the 5 door model, but it's my car so tough.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definatly, it's a pity they've dropped the diesel though.

What are you likely to buy next?
Possibly the CZC convertible mmmmmmmm, but I rather like the look of the Kia Soul mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, and I like the FIAT Panda 100hp. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, not quite decided yet, I don't want to part with my little Colt just yet.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£4,000

When did you buy the car?
July 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got a reasonable deal, as it had incredibly low mileage. Owner had to sell due to company vehicle so a decent deal was made. Happy days.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I was after something with a higher seating position, I looked at the 1.1 & 1.3 petrol engined models, but they were not as pokey as I wanted, especially the 1.3, it was gutless and noisy. After reading reviews I decided on the diesel model and it was suprisingly delightful.

What was the dealer like?
not applicable

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very torquey, nice through the gears, can handle a decent turn of speed, decent on a long run too. Ride's a bit noisy, but soaks up the bumps pretty well. It's a doddle in town mind you, decent speed through the gears. I love it a lot.

What's it like to park?
An absolute doddle to park thanks to those large door mirrors and higher driving position.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not yet and I hope nothing will either. It seems very robust and nicely put together.

What's most practical about your car?
The wonderfully wide doors, the large door mirrors, the nice way the rear seats fold easily, the sliding rear seat, the space in the rear, the roof spoiler, the alloys, the size of it, the shape of it, need I say more? Minor niggles are the parcel shelf doesn't automatically drop down when using the boot, and the front seats don't return to the position you had before you allowed access to the rear, nothing major at all though. As I've said, minor niggles

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The big door mirrors make parking a doddle, Love the computer, it lets you know how much fuel you've used and how many miles left in the tank and alters with your style of driving. Nice!
