Awesome Car. — The most fun car that I have owned so far. It's a quick little car that is very fun to drive. You can find these cars for a pretty affordable price, but prepare to drop some cash into it from past years of kids beating on it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast and Affordable

Cons: Drop a lot of cash to maintain it.

Nice Ride — My first real car that I paid for. Raced it a few times against a friend with a 90's RS Camaro. Loved how the instruments were layout in the car. Only thing wrong with it is the timing belt didn't last that long.

Pros: Styling

Cons: Timing Belts Break Easy

20+ Pounds Of Boost On A Stock Block, 120,000 Miles And Going Strong. — It will blow most 8 cylinder cars off the road, still gets upper 20 mpg's on the highway, it is a tuners best friend, the handling is superb especially because its all-wheel drive. That also means I can put down a 1.7 second 60 foot time in a quarter while some cars are still pleading for traction.

Pros: Fast and Cheap

Cons: Rough, aggressive ride

Pros: accerleration, and braking

Cons: interior only

My First Dsm Test Drive — Performance - strong, smooth powerband Build Quality - interior cheap because it's a DSM, motor is a tank Appearance - nothing special, make it inconspicuous Cost of Ownership - an empty wallet unites all DSM owners Fun Factor- This car was awesome, it got me hooked on boost and DSMs

Pros: strong acceleration, sleeper status

Cons: braking is a little weak, constant maintenance is required to keep it on the road

The Sports Car Of Yesturday's Future — Do you remember when American car companies were turbocharging japanese engines? Do you remember the Plymouth Laser, Eagle Talon, or Mitsubishi Eclipse? I do- and that was the car to beat. This was also my favorite year in terms of performance. With a pretty solid aftermarket, you could make one of these little guys quite the nutty little machine for a minimal cost. They handled great, they were practical and they made big V8s look stupid. The 1992 DSMs ran a 1.9 inline-four that only pumped out 190mph. The All-Wheel-Drive version was great on the streets and track but it was the front wheel drive turbo that became the true track monster. For only $1500 and some simple work, a person could turn a quick car into something that could outrun Corvettes and 911s in the 1/4 mile. Then again, this wasn't a bad car to just own as a regular daily driver.

Pros: quick, fun, big aftermarket, affordable.

Cons: a little hard to find, 2nd gen were the ugly years for this car

Corners Like It's On Rails!!! Japanese Reliability, And Not A Belly Button Car! — I love this car. It handles like a go cart and goes very, very fast. This car feels like a race car. The cockpit is wrapped around the driver, and you can tell this car is meant to be driven. It feels like you're in a jet fighter. You feel like the car is a part of you... You feel everything and all of your driver input causes an instant reaction. The handling is excellent, and it is very hard to get yourself into trouble in this car. The car is also kind of rare now, so it feels like you're driving something a little exclusive. This car still gets lots of compliments, and it's 15 years old! I would recommend these cars to anyone.

Pros: Handles great, fun to drive, well built and reliable.

Cons: A little short on power stock (the aftermarket fixes that), small back seat.
