  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    That i buy practical and economic value for money. This car is kind of like a tin of Ronseal, 'It does exactly what it says on the tin!'

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    My friends laugh, with there mega expensive BMW's, and Gucci chick magnets, but i like its practicality and its excellent fuel economy.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Oh yesssss.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Another MITSI, maybe a Galant Estate, i want the 2.5 V6 Auto, but i think this might be a little heavy on fuel, and the Mrs may put her foot down a little to much.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Power steering pump went, got a second hand replecement for £35. Exhaust centre and back box rusted through, but this was ther original from 1996, so i can't complain. N/S poweremirror doesn't tilt in and out anymore.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Massive boot space, very very economical (full tank gets me 500 miles), reliable, quite comfortable.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Nothing special, but electric mirrors, windows, roof and central locking for a budget car as standard, you don't getthat on a Ford or Vauxhall.
