We got a Mitsubishi Expo 2 years ago, and just recently traded it for a Ford Thunderbird. We bought the Expo for 1,200.00, which was a good deal for us considering how great of shape it was in. Now don't get me wrong, I love the Ford Thunderbird, but it was not what my other car was to me. I loved the 1992 Mitsubishi Expo that we had gotten, and if i could go back, I would have never traded it.
Not only is the Mitsubishi Expo very fuel efficient getting about 27-30 mpg city (ours did), on a full tank of gas we would get 326 miles on it before the gas light would come on! That is amazing!!! I love how fuel efficient it was, although it is not much for looks it's other qualities by far surpass anything that you could have against it.
It is a 4 wheel drive vehicle. It does not have a thing to kick it into 4 wheel drive, it is in it all the time. Absolutely wonderful in bad weather! I attend college, and my classes are on a really big hill, I never had a second thought about getting up that hill safetly in this vehicle!
The maintence is another story for this vehicle. The one that we had during the two years that we owned it only had one problem, but it was a major problem. The computer had went out of it. We took it to the mechanic, ended up paying 600.00 for it to be fixed, and have never had another problem out of it! I loved it so much, and I completely regret getting rid of it.
I have not even mentioned the spacious inside yet. The inside has so much room. It has back seats that you can flip up if you have more passengers (aka: 3rd row seating), and even with the 3rd row seating up you still have room to put enough stuff in the back hatch for a cookout, and a swimming trip!
The 1992 Mitsubishi Expo is a great family vehicle, it can handle like a minivan, and hold as much too, only it's smaller. The vehicle handles great, I have never had any problem out of it. Of course you have to keep up on the regular maintenance, like oil changes, and tires, etc. But if you do that then you should have a great running spacious car.
However not everything can be perfect, and it does have it's flaws, mainly that a lot of the Mitsubishi parts are sometimes a little hard to come by, so they have to be ordered from the dealership, which costs a lot more money, and these types are known for getting rust near the fenders, but if it's garage kept you won't have a problem with that. Other than that this car is great!
