>plenty of manual options
>cheap with good warranties
>least offensive looking line up from Japan
They don't provide luxurious interiors or status, but no one here cares about that right?
>implying thats a bad thing
i dont need lane departure or blind spot monitoring or braking assist. i just want a half decent car that gets okay gas mileage and isnt chock-full of shit designed for soccer moms
If you want a worse than mediocre commuting shitbox with only reliability and warranty as redeeming qualities, knock yourself out.
I'll be having a Joy in a new Mazda 3 meanwhile.
>Still shilling Mazda
Mazda has only recently blitzkrieged it's way to best Manufacturer, shilling them anytime before right now in 2016 would have been retarded.
Mazda is what Honda was in the 90's.
Mitsu died in the mid 2000's. The last lancer, galant, diamente, and even eclipse were all fairly good cars for what they were designed for.in the early/late 2000's. After that things just went to shit.
Mitsu has so much money that they could care less what happens to their automotive division. It has been going into the toilet for over a decade and they couldn't care less and leave people in charge that have no idea what they're doing.
TLDR: Mitsu has been shit for over a decade and it wont change . They'll be out of business soon in the auto market in the US at least.
I don't think there's any brand that's available in America that has never had something that I'd like.
As for Mitsu, I prefer older ones.
Lancers are meh, but old evo wagons are boner-tier.
But really lads, the thing that gets me the most about Mitsubishi is their naming conventions. I dunno man, I wish other manufacturers would get on board.
The L200 Barbarian (not sold in US)
What's the competition sound like?
Titan (it was a good name)

The cars have less names and more like titles, you know? As any good sci-fi or fantasy nerd will tell you - titles are important in building character.
you have the right idea.
Mitsubishi's entrance into the auto industry was more for the idea of having automobiles of their own design for their execs to design than it was for the general consumer.
Thing is - mitsu ended up being very successful up through the 90s. They failed to follow the general consumer direction in the 2000's and by the mid 2000's they were producing korean-tier vehicles at jap-tier prices and their marketing in general sucked cock. This led to them having god awful sales and making moves that didn't make sense and only hurt them.
They probably could of milked the 08 evo design for another couple years - at least profiting more off of it than their newer mirage/galant/etc designs.
I love DSMs and evos and all that - but Mitsu is a fucking disaster in this day and age. I wouldn't give them a dime for anything automotive related.

The Evo8/9 are so fucking sexy and out of nowhere the 10 becomes a brick. I'm not sure on Mitsubishi specs so I can't say if it's any heavier but it looks so much fatter and unappealing. And then Subaru took a page out of their styling and did the same damn thing to the WRX.
what I have read about the evo 10 suggests that it is more towards use on tarmac than the older models
it has a much more rigid structure and a few more electrical gizmo's
evo 3 and sixth gen galant vr4 are my fav
a first generation space wagon is cool too
The 4b11t has a full aluminium block while the 4g63 had a aluminium cast iron block. In my opinion the 4g63 is superior because it can take a shitload of high rev beatings. That's why I love the earlier EVO's too.
No, it's an SUV version of the L200. It wasn't even originally called the Pajero/Montero Sport, it was called the Challenger and that's how it should have stayed. It's a nice 4Runner/Prado competitor.
id like to make an evo space wagon at some point
then challenge leone 4x4 wagon to a rally stage
i'll take your BRZ and pit it against a 3000gt
something tells me the gt will win 10/10 times
strange, that's not a pajero.
i onwed a mitsubishi galant for 5 years, put 80k on it.
i only had engine trouble when i got my engine smashed by a 17 year old white girl driving a monster suv, who didn't know what a red lights means.
