Unreliable but very fun

This car was a money pit from the day I bought it to the day I sold it. But I absolutely loved it when it ran. It has great power and has better exterior styling compared to the sister car, the Mitsubishi Eclipse. I won't buy again but an adventure and I have learned a lot.

6 Bolt, 7 Bolt, Crankwalk???

So, just for you less gearheaded people out there. My title is a statement on the types of blocks these cars came with. First off, I'll mention reliability. As with ANY turbo car. Oil changes are MUCH more frequent due to blow by and the fact that the turbo is lubricated by the oil. Poor maintaining of 4G63 motors leads to a spun bearing/crank walk issues (7 bolt motors from 92 on). It's proven fact. Comfort, by far, these cars have a nicer interior to them than alot of the cars in their class. The AWD is especially nice, outfitted in leather seats usually. Handling, while not as competent around a track as a Integra GS-R. The additional power gained from the turbo is a nice ground leveling addition. The car should in stock trim put down consistent 14ish second passes on a 1/4 mile. Inside the car, you'll find a competent instrument cluster, readouts of Boost is displayed, oil levels, of course a thermostat gauge and your typical speedometer and tachometer. The all around fit and finish of these cars is considered the highest end for their era (economy class car wise). Nothing super nice, but a solid fit and a comfortable throw distance with the shifter make the car worth the initial sit down. Externally, this car is sharp. From the rounded shape of the body to the front fascia that just screams put a front mount intercooler in me. The car's initial intercooler is side-mounted and cheap gains can be made by relocating it to the front of the car. All in all, I prefer these cars for daily driving, it's a alot harder to maintain than your typical Honda/Acura. Yet the end result is a highly competent car with potential for many uses, be it daily applications or a 10 second 1/4 mile monster. The possibilities are endless.
