Gas Consumption. — This car has the potential to get you 30 MPG, only thing I suggest when shooting for this or better is driving with the cruise control going long distance like 200-400 miles at a constant rate of 68-72 miles per hour. if you wanted extreme mileage to the gallon, try going a rate of 55-65 constantly on 1 tank, you'll be surprised how far you can get with it. It's great on gas in the spring fall and maybe winter, but when summer comes, the AC uses power and takes away from pick up, and AC uses more fuel as well. The car is very reliable but if the clutch only lasts 50-60 thousand miles, it wasn't made that sturdy. I got 73,000 miles out of the clutch, so that should tell you something about the driving style.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: good gas mileage when going 65-72, comfy drive and ride

Cons: in the summer the AC weakens the engine HP and causes more fuel consumption.

Aggresivly Styled, Good Price Point, Good Power. — The Steering Felt Vaige with little feed back. Good Power even from base engine. tons of trunk space. You Can`t question Mitsubishi`s reliability, they got a 10year warranty and they are the only car maker that also builds planes.

Pros: Power, Styling, mileage

Cons: No Feedback from wheel. 5-speed feels mushy and stiff in all the wrong places.

Best car I’ve ever owned. Gave to my son at 152000 miles. All I ever did was change oil and regular upkeep. Average mpg was 35 and 29 using aircon.
