Don't Buy A Mitsubishi! — When these things run, they run very well, but when they don't, look out! I paid for this car over again not once but twice! Had to get a new motor when the original seized. Things went well for a couple of years then it mysteriously would keep stalling then flooding. I finally had to get rid of it when I couldn't find anyone to figure out the problem with it! Too bad, because it was a cute little car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good fuel economy, good power if it's a manual transmission

Cons: Nobody out there works on these things!

I Love This Car. — I have a 1989 Dodge Colt 200 that has no rust, no dents, it has 93,000 kms on it. Last year it got new wheel bearings, and this year I replaced the cv joints. It still looks like a brand new car and is great on gas.It even has the original stereo in it. However, only problem I find is if its really muddy out or slushy is I have to constantly pull over and clean the headlights at night cause they are so low to the ground spray from other vehicles turns them black. Otherwise, this is the most awesome car I have ever owned.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: gas mileage, handling, everything....

Cons: none

Dodge Colt 89 Turbo — It was a fast and cool little car. Nothing fancy but all that was needed at the time.

Pros: Nervous, fast, small, agile

Cons: high fuel consumption, no turbo cooler, almost killed my self a few times.

Awesome Wagon: Perfect First Car And I'm Keeping It Forever. — I wish I had a turbo charger for the 1.5 liter, tinted windows, and cruise control. I'm going to tint the windows, add an after-market cruise control, and try putting a simple 12v box fan inline (on the air intake) and see if that helps with the slow acceleration from a stop sign. I use my wagon for going to and from auctions, estate sales, and Menards (a lumber yard type of store in Michigan and the Midwest). Can't wait to paint it so that it looks as good as it performs.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Just about everything about it is a pro.
Very thick metal on the car, yet it's lightweight enough to get 32-37 mpg and I have a wagon.
Looks like an Audi 100 wagon.  Not many of them around, so it always draws a look from the old timers.

Cons: No cruise control.  Sluggish 1.5 liter engine from a stop and going up hills but can be overcome by flooring the gas pedal.  No passenger side mirror on the door (had to put one on it).
