Pros

It's quick, the DOHC do wonders and the ECS makes it very fun to drive.

Cons

It's a little behind the times. Parts are a little costly. Great for a passenger but not for carpooling.

90's Sports Car Through And Through. — It's quick, the DOHC do wonders and the ECS makes it very fun to drive. The 3000GT is one of my favorite cars and I would buy one again if Mitsubishi ever reintroduced the line. Sleek, stylish even today, and still not to be taken lightly on the street.

Loved It But Had A Big Issue — We loved this car but it had a issue where it would die going down the road and we still do not know exactly wat the problem is 2,000 dollars worth of parts later. We love it but hard and exensive to fix.

Pros

Amazing acceleration  decent top speed very good handling and grip on the road

Cons

maintence is expensive and car is very unpredictable wat can go wrong or wat cannot. parts are very hard to find and no mechanic will touch the car because it's hard to work on. u need to take this car to a high performance car specialist

Very Good Overall Car Has Almost Everything U Need It For Spirited Driving I Love My Vr4!! :) — Performance- acceleration 0-60 5 seconds flat, braking 60- 0 115 handling is very good with all wheel steering as wheel. build quality- very strong engine needed couple of repairs like intake manifold gasket and timing belt expensive to repair parts are hard to find. appearance- 92 but still has that exotic look to it very beautiful car can keep up with a lot of performance cars stills sleek and sexy gas mileage- bad AWD twin turbo drinks it like it's no tomm and premium only. Fun Factor- definitly a fun car to drive especially if u do a couple of mods and have a nice blow off valve ur good to go. performance will give u a rush and the handling will keep u glued to the road. sometimes car will tend to over steer u better shift quick because the car will want to move. can't sleep on a gear must be active.

Pros

The shifter, launching, quick spool of the turbos, and tight handling with the 4 wheel steering

Cons

missing clearcoat on the top, my chewed up front bumper, my stock rims, difficulty of reaching just about anything in the engine bay, and the weight of the car

Solid And A Good Platform To Have Fun With But Not As A Daily Driver. Its A Weekend Warrior — 20 year old import classic. Helped set a standard for the turbo imports of the 90's. Overall a rare car but seen as most being too heavy, and not reliable but when maintained correctly, can treat the owner well in the long run, especially the 2nd gens (94+). Even in stock trim the car gets up and goes, and is a blast to drive. The transmission is very durable. Parts are pretty expensive but you get a good discount when you tell the dealer you're on the 3si forum, which is also a very helpful site. Mine personally has needed a few repairs being that I got it with 147k on it and it hadn't been taken too well care of. Didn't make any funky sounds or anything, just needed a new clutch and tires which it did receive. As far as appearance I like the streamlined styling, and the way the car sits, albeit the huge wheel gap. The interior is driver friendly and feels comfortable, unless you're a giant. As it sits now, it needs a new bottom end, because of a spun rod bearing. Which can be avoided easily by keeping up with the oil and making sure you dont dent the pan. Overall its a fun car to drive, even when I had 3 bad boost leaks. Once its up and running again, it will have new and improved turbos among lots of other mods I dumped into it during its downtime.

Rice Rocket — This little car really goes! The acceleration is awesome for a non-turbo car. The torque steer is very noticeable when you "hammer-down". The car's styling really gets a lot of wow comments. The mid-life service (60K) can be expensive. Worth the time to have one.

Drinks fuel.  Difficult to get spare parts.

Great Value Classic Supercar. — Most excellent but under-rated car. Relatively cheap to buy on the second hand market. Pretty to look at, reliable, fast, all weather car. Drinks fuel though and if there are any repairs, the parts need to be brought in from overseas.

Mitsubishi 3000gt Vr-4 '92 — really great performance on the dry, wet and even in light snow (with winter tires of course), thanks to the awd. Acceleration is fast due to the V6 3 liter twin turbo twin cam twin intercooler 24V engine that develops 320 hp and the same amount of torque. The engine's sound is amazing and almost exotic. Braking is good, thanks to 4 pistons ventilated brakes at the front and 2 pistons at the rear. The all weel steering system (aws) and the active aero system makes it easy to take corners at high speed without loosing control. Handling is exceptional too. The build quality is good, in the average of other Mitsubishi products. The styling is as great inside and outside, the car looks almost exotic ! Being a GT car, the maintenance is not cheap due to the price of the parts and the complex mecanic and system, but it's still less expansive than a lot of other GT cars as Porsche for example. The gear ratio are pretty long so you can have a pretty gas mileage is your right foot isn't too heavy and you shift at low rpm. For example, you can go at 65mph in 5th gear and the engine rpm is only at 2k. You can go over 90mph at 3k rpm ! Other cars hit 90mph in top gear at 4k or 5k rpm ! In fact the ccar is reaaly fun to drive, the comfort is really correct for a sport car, but the rear places are a joke... as the volume of the rear trunk. But still in the average for a sport car. To conclude, if you see one in great condition, never wrecked or beaten, and if you have a good amount of money to keep it clean, jump on the occasion !!! :P

Cons

3000gt — Love it!! Base power was decent for the car , but I since then have added a twin turbo system to it, The handling is awesome on this car and stable, due to the active sport suspension it hugs the road very nice. The body style is gorgeuos enough on its own so no exterior mods are necessary, maybe thats why it was left pretty much unchanged throughout most of its production years, its slick, sexy, and fits the sport car image that can match even the best of them. Even with the turbo conversion I still manage at least 25 miles to the gallon and maintainance has been very cheap too. I would definately recomend buying one and you won't be disappointed , very fun , fast, and affordable to buy and maintain.

TWIN TURBOS

Cons

its a bit fat

Low And Wide, It Has Power!! — amazing Car, great for handling and cornering, the interior is nice, all black leather, the back seats wont support a family of four but it adds a sleek look to the car. The best thing about this car is that it looks aggressive, but i want to get the 94 body conversion on the front end to get rid of the pop up lights but. its got great power, 300+ hp. Mileage is pretty terrible with the vr4 but it worth the money i think if your looking for a good time. the only downside to this car is that its heavy, reducing overall performance. also if your looking to do any intense engine work beware, the engine bay is absolutely packed. overall its a monster car, ready to eat its rivals but it will put a hole in your pocket in gas.
