Mitsubishi 380 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi 380 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Reliable used 4-cylinder cars?
With a limited budget like yours I would suggest to go for a car with a good reliability record. While the Mercedes-Benz is a good car you are likely to be facing an expensive repair if anything should go wrong. Consider a Mitsubishi 380 or a Toyota Camry of around 2000-2003.
Thoughts on Mitsubishi 380?
They're getting on in age now and many have high odometer readings, but if you shop around and find one that has relatively low kays, say 150,000 km or so, and has been looked after they are a good car. You can get a Series III for $5000 or less.
Experience using Goodride tyres
Rodney Jane of Bob Jane T-Marts reckons tyres are a grudge purchase and people nearly always want the cheapest rubber — but there is a sweet spot where you can get good value without compromising safety.
Mitsubishi 380 auto servicing
Use the manual shift as much as you can and anticipate the road ahead. When you're facing a hill, be ready to down-change manually without waiting for the transmission to do it for itself. Never let it lug at low revs in too high a gear. The other thing to be mindful of is servicing. The transmission fluid should be regularly changed, at least every 50,000 km if not before, and a full service is recommended around 100,000 km. By doing that you should be able to extend the life of your automatic transmission. Servicing is even more important if the transmission is made to work hard, such as when towing.
