Mitsubishi All Day — Mitsubishi is the way to go...its basically a non turbo fwd evo...never had a problem with it since i got it...high miles and it runs like new...would nver leave the mitsubishi family..they are semi expensive to buy dpeneding on your budget but they are WELL WORTH IT. so much fun to drive and its fast but at the same time you are sitting in comfortable leather seats with the sunroof open, windows down, and music blasting. you can go fast and still be comfortable which is hard for most sport cars.gas mileage is pretty good cant complain plus i run 93 in it so it last longer and cleans the injectors.takes off quick and the v6 helps it take off real nice. no matter what low mid and top range is quick and very acceptable for stock. when im done working on the motor over winter ill post more up.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I Love The Car, Its My First And Its Been Good To Me So Far. — It is a I4 so its slow and dosnt have a lot of get up and go. It handles alright could use some suspension upgrades. It is decently fun to drive it is manual so it feels good to keep the revs up around a corner. Hasn't needed to many repairs so far. I like the styling, my model came with a small spoiler which I know does nothing for performance but it actually does make the car look better. Good gas milage and not a lot of maintenance.

Great — accelerates great 210 horsepower 4wheel disk brakes are great, oem strut brace in the front handles awesome, only repairs needed were tires and a radio, one of the sexiest cars on the road still interior is good needs more room though, gas mileage is good for a v6 about 28 29 takes premium gas or wont run right, fun as hell to drive love it to death

Nice Car — It was a nice looking car in 2001, but it wasn't to fast. Not good for performance, after few mods it started to break down a lot. It's a nice daily car, but not for somebody who is looking for performance

Good Drag Start Car — Lots of top end speed but lacks the acceleration. Handles turns fairly well but lacks that fact that it can not drift. Cheap to maintain and very fun to drive. Parts are easy to find, usually, and quick install, usually....
