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

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.

Pros

Styling, Performance, & Handling

Cons

Back seat room, and torque steer

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.

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.

Great Daily Driver Thats Still Fast And Turns Heads Not Many Left Of These Around. — The looks of this car are second to none when this car came out there was not a car on the road that could touch it and still today most cant believe its a Mitsubishi! Performance? well the SL has a 3.0L DOHC V6 with the 5 speed man trans you get around 225 HP and 225tqs and even though this is a heavy car and the vr4 with its all wheel drive and 4 wheel steering twin turbocharged twin inter cooled motor is heaver still it is much faster. there is far much more to go wrong in that setup for a daily driver and with the optional ecs or electronic controlled suspension twisty roads are no match for you as are most cars today hyundai honda toyota most of them will get smashed in this with a good driver.

If You Have A Passion For Them Like Me, Get It. You Won't Be Sorry. — Let me start off by saying that this car is my dream car. It was the first car that I fallen in love with, and I finally got my hands on one. So, let's get crackin'! **Performance: This is where the car shines like a royal jewel. The AWD system in the car accompanies the 3.0l Twin Turbo V6 like none other. The acceleration churned out by that beast is more than adequate. The brakes are large and offer a short stopping distance, considering the weight of the car. All Wheel Steering allows the car to hook around corners at high speed, putting the handling above the rest of the competition, bar none. **Build Quality: This is a Japanese Car, so the build quality is going to be generally superb. I've had the car for about 7 months now, and the only things that I've had to replace were shotty repair jobs that the previous owner had done at a shady mechanic. I have had nothing but great experiences in the car once I got the initial issues sorted out. **Appearance: This car is flat-out stunning to look at. The wide and low-slung body is very aggressive, and offers that "sportscar" look. The interior is made of black leather, which is all well, but it's just so damn hot when you get in on a hot day. The accessory gauges and digital HVAC are a great touch as well. **Cost of Ownership: This is where things begin to go south. Owning this car can get a bit pricey. If something breaks (IE the All Wheel Steering), you're going to have to pay an arm and a leg to get that sort of thing fixed with the parts from the dealer. If you're in the Southern California area, though, there's a shop called FSR Motorsports (http://www.fsrmotorsports.com) that will take care of your car as if it were their own. **Fun Factor: This car rocks, hands down. There's nothing quite like that kick you get from the twin turbo V6 combined with AWD. And then there's that roar from the V6 that you don't get from a 4 banger. You can even wave at people behind you with your ADJUSTABLE spoiler! There's just so much about this car that I am passionate about. This car is just simply superb, and I won't ever look back and regret purchasing it.

fun to drive, looks great, feels even better

Cons

Bottom Line This Car Is Awesome! — This car is very quick, and looks like a classy sports car. It has 300 hp at the crank stock, 5 speed manual, awd, all wheel steer after 30mph, electronic control suspension, active aerodynamics and feels very stable. Be wary if you're looking to buy one though, because many people will beat on these cars til no tomorrow. Biggest things to look for are any leaks whatsoever, and oil pressure. If you aren't mindful of these, it could cost you big bucks with an engine rebuild. Overall this car is super fun to drive!!!!

3000gt Vr4 Is A Good Bang For The Buck Car — in stock trim the car is fairly quick but nothing special. it is easy to turn the vr4 into an amazing daily driver though. the OEM build quality is extremely good but the car is old so a lot of restoration is needed to own one. Brakes, turbos, ECU, clutch, window regulators and many gaskets and seals will likely need to be replaced. to own one of these cars you MUST have either very deep pockets, or at least some basic mechanical knowledge and tools to fix many minor issues. overall i believe the car is a great bang for the buck sports car.
