Default Just a friendly reminder why you shouldn't buy Mitsubishi cars

Here's a nice specimen from a friend's 97 Eclipse Spyder GST. The automatic transmission exploded on the highway at 50 miles per hour. She said it sounded and felt like she rear ended somebody. On to the carnage.


Anybody think the buffer will help here?

What... What in the...

What in the world could cause THAT to happen?


My friend had a 3000GT VR4, the rear differential blew, and driving down a straight road at, I think, 70 mph? The back slid out and the car rolled like crazy. He came out OK, only one scar to show for it.

I love my mitsu's

I've had gsx's/vr4's/galant vr4 over the years I just love them. But they will really make you into a mechanic

Goatman, theres a recall your friend should have taken it to the dealership they would have fixed it free of charge.
