Pros

Acceleration, Handling, High-tech, Uncommon.

Cons

Brakes,

55

A Much Ignored High-tech Performance Car. — It's a very quick and uncommon car. Some verions, including the UK version like mine, has 320bhp with the 13g turbos as standard. Most only have 280bhp and the smaller 9g turbos. The car is very heavy but the active suspension and 4-wheel steering make the handling excellent. The acceleration is excellent all-round and, as you would expect from 4WD, off-the-line acceleration is hard to match. The brakes let it down a little and not good enough for aggressive driving like on a track but those can be upgraded. mpg 26-28 on a 80% motorway journey doing the speed limit. Overall: modern M3 performance except without the huge road tax and price tag.

Fun and unique

Cons

Mileage sucks

Best First Car — Acceleration is amazing. It handles great thanks to the AWD and brakes work great too. Awesome car I'm always having people check it out. I love driving it. The only thing that sucks is that it uses premium and doesn't have the best mileage.

Pros

for a car of that era with a high energy engine this car get as high as 26 mpg and it has great luggage capacity with the back seat down

Cons

even though it is rated as a coup it is really a two seat car unless the back set passenger is a very small child

Great — This car is nicely styled and still commands many compliments. The power driver seat makes it a very comfortable vehicle for long drives and the power lumbar support and wrap around sides of the seat back also gives added long distance comfort.

Pros

Great Looking, Great Sounding Car. Has upgraded suspension and exhaust for performance handling, and quick acceleration.   

Cons

The car is loud, and will need to have a Catalytic converter installed to make it CA, Street Legal

Sporty, Fun, Weekend Car. Rare Low Miles — I love the Sound, Style, and Power of this car. Even when the car is parked you are still grabbing people attention. Can be hard to work on yourself unless you have an engine lift due to tight spaces in the engine bay.

Dont Really Know How To Work On Cars And My Brothers Live To Far Away — it is very fun to drive it and it doesn't really want to idel after it runs for a while. i've been told that it could be the coil pack, modual, or a tune up. i love this car and its not one of those rides you have to keep pouring money into.

Awesome!!! — I loved everything about this car! Launch speed. Head jerking tire gripping power!!!! The AWD amd 4 wheel steering are excellent. It's a very wide car with excellent traction. I wish the was body kits for it! You can't even get Euro tail lights.

A labour of love...

Cons

Weight and cost to repair!

Fun To Drive - Alot Of Car For Your Money! — Firstly - don't buy this car if you don't have the money to maintain it, they can cost a fortune! Secondly - don't buy this car if you think it's going to be the quickest thing on the road! Thirdly - if you want something technologically advanced for its time, different from the norm, with a bit of poke - this may be the car for you!

Amazing If It's For Exterior Shock Value, Great Handling, And Lots Of Available Mods. — Great for shock value since the car is so rare. Steering is a 9 out of 10 and so is traction and control factors. Parts are expensive to replace but there are lots of optional mods. Car is a must have for a weekend driver and for summer fun.

Great, If In Good Condition — Good gas mileage, fun to drive, comfortable while driving. Good at cornering, moderate power, sleek. If your looking for a rarer car to set you out from the crowd you should look into one of these. Very good for day to day driving or tracking.

The Mitsubishi 3000 Gt — The 3000 GT is phenomenally fast, 0 to 60 coming up in under 6 secs. Limited top speed of 155, four wheel drive, four wheel steer, active suspension, active aeros, twin turbo charged V6 3 lire engine. Truly a future classic !
