Underrated, Reliable With Stellar Engineering

by JJMalibu19 from Newport Beach | May 30, 2013

I recently bought a 1993 Eagle Summit Wagon 2.4l AWD (same as Mitsubishi Expo) from the original owner. The car is 20 years old and has 63000 miles! The engine hasn't lost any power and everything works: Amazing! Most people would say that its style is obsolete but the car is very functional, has great details and brilliant engineering. If you don't take yourself too seriously and have a good sense of derision, this car is cool. Performance is good but don't expect an EVO experience :). Visibility is great (you almost feel like in a fish bowl) and the car size & volumes are perfect: not too small for your trip to Costco and not too little to cruise on freeways next to SUVs. Most people don't dig this little car. Too bad. They are cheap to buy and are not endless projects. But Expo and Summit Wagons are hard to find in good condition: sadly, many already ended in junkyards. Parts & materials seem to age very well. But Summit Wagon and Expo models didn't sell great. Therefore NOS and good used parts are hard to find. But if you find one Summit or Expo in great shape with a 2.4l and manual transmission, just go for it. This can be a great little street racing car project - again if you have a good sense of humor.

Ahead of its time

by gringo_mvd from Washington, DC area | November 30, 2008

Bought my '94 Expo used with 80k+ miles back in 1998 - swallowed hard when I found out it had been a rental vehicle, but bought it anyway. I was originally planning to use it for only a few months between overseas transfers, and then sell it (rather than dump big $$$ into a rental car). However, I fell in love with the Expo during the four months I had it - including a 6,000 mile cross-USA road trip. I decided to leave it with my folks while I was out of the country. (They fell in love with it, too - it was hard to get it back). It's a great overall package - not as big outside as a large minivan, but bigger inside than most wagons, hatchbacks or even small SUVs. It's not too big, not too small, not outstanding in any one aspect, but solid all-around. Now, 10 years and 90,000 additional miles later, I still have it, and it's still running strong. It doesn't serve well as a daily 7-pass. vehicle, but the 3rd row seat serves in a pinch when the kids/grandkids come to visit. BTW - As the Mitsubishi Space Wagon (as it's known in Asia, Europe and S. America), it's very popular - much more so than it's ever been in the US. Last year, I could have sold my '94 for US$6-7k in South America, if I could have shipped it down. Strong points: 1. Fuel economy - 2.4 lit. engine typically gives 20+ in town, approaches or exceeds 30 mpg highway (speed dependent). 2. Ease of driving - Spoils you for anything else. Easy steering, great driving position and visibility. 3. Reliability - other than routine maintenance, no significant problems. 4. Versatility - Good for 4 passengers - OK for 5; fits 7 in a pinch (helps if 2 are children); excellent cargo space with rear seats down - swallows almost as much as my small pickup. Weak points: 1. Power - it's adequate, but sluggish by today's standards of 0-60 in less than 10 seconds. 2. Front seat legroom - both driver and pass. sides tight for those 6'2" and over. 3. No front passenger airbag or ABS - things that were not uncommon in 1994. 4. Nitpick: Mitsubishi-only automatic transmission fluid (even though it was sold through Chrysler as a Eagle Summit, I've never found an alternate specification for anything other than Mits' own ATF) However, if you can't afford $20k for a new version, an old Mits Expo is a trip back to the future.
