Overview

"Maximum Mitsubishi Merriment"

Exterior and Interior

Such a cute little colt!! Exterior is great - only downside is the totally oversized TURBO badge on the back - completely OTT and not needed. Interior is comfortable in the front (and you have got to love those heated seats!) however unless you are under 5 - or super flexible - then I would not recommend an extended joureny in those back seats.

Performance and Economy

I love how nippy this car is. for a 1.5 she certainly likes to shift (probably more than a little due to the turbo that takes up so much of the engine space) Only thing is, whilst she is happy to sit at 90 (not that i do this of course) the economy level drops quite considerably at anything over 80/85. DOn't get me wrong it's not as bad as a 3.0 BMW but given how good the fuel economy usually is its happy to sit at 80 or below if you are budget conscious.

Like to Drive

Quite a hard drive - suspension is not particularly forgiving. Corners well but beware of the under steer (once you get used to it its fine!) I genuinely love it and the fact that it is a convertible just makes me happy! :-) <

Faults and Repairs

Nothing so far at all. She is only 5 years old and so far I have only replaced tyres, bulbs and windscreenwipers! Happy days.
