Happy long-term owner

I've owned my VR-4 since it was new in 1994. Performance and reliability have been everything I could hope for. In spite of its age (and mine) the car still gets looks from people as we drive by. The car has lots of gadgets including a little television screen that reports on what the climate control system is up to. The 6 speaker Infinity stereo system always performs. The 6 disc CD changer works great, but the cartridge cannot be exchanged while driving the car (it's mounted behind the seats). The electrically operated driver's seat provides creature comfort. The power and acceleration are a beautiful thing. The tire tread is about a foot wide, so it doesn't squeal around corners, and it doesn't slip in wet weather (however it doesn't do well in ice and snow). It's been a great vehicle overall, and I still look foreward to driving it.

I cant tell you how good of a deal this car is and the value you get for the money. I bought my 94 Bright red manual with 173K for under 3K. Car has a new paint job and found some Vr4 18 inch chrome rims I found on craigs list to put on the car and it makes it look like a 10K vehicle and no real differece from the outside from the Vr4. Gets looks everywhere you go. Car runs and looks great and love it being a manual. I plan to use it as a weekend driver moving forward. You cant get a better looking and to note quite dependable car with good gas mileage for the price. The car was way ahead its time and followed the starion which I owned and loved as well. Its a shame Mitsubishi stopped producing sexy performance vechicles cause they dont make anythig exciting anymore. Only complaint is its hard to get in and out and if your over 6 feet tall you almost hit the roof. Defninately highly recommended and you can find one for dirt cheap. Hold onto yours and treat her well cause they will be a classic down the road :)

I wanted a VR-4 for years and finally bought one when I found one at a dealership a reasonable distance away. I have never owned a really nice car before, and the experience of people staring and honking when you drive by is pretty awesome. Even 18+ years later this car still draws attention, and it’s completely stock! As if it wasn’t enough to drive a “looker,” the performance is also amazing. This is such a fun car to drive. The turbos kick in like you’ve been rear ended around 2,000 RPM and you are on the brakes to avoid a ticket before you know it. The all wheel drive means not an ounce of power is wasted in this car. The vehicle has so much rubber on the road that I have yet to make the tires squeal. Styling: check. Performance: check. Comfort? Check! Unlike most sports cars, this vehicle has both sporty handling and a sedan like cruising experience. The ECS (electronically controlled suspension) and large wheels give a vehicle a very smooth ride over rough pavement. The seats in this car are very comfortable, and highly adjustable. In general I hate leather upholstery, but because the seats are well ventilated you don’t end up glued to the seat. The automatic climate control functions admirably and makes you forget that there is weather outside the car. The community surrounding this car is phenomenal as well. Any questions I have had about this car were easily solved by browsing forums and asking other enthusiasts. There are even step by step illustrated guides for rebuilding the transmission! Overall, it is the dream car I always hoped it would be. I couldn’t be more pleased. I plan to drive this car ‘til the day I die!

I just bought this car from a friend who has owned it since new. He has all receipts and papers from any/all work done on the car since new. This car is very fast and handles really well when the active aero is activated. It's all wheel steering and all Wheel drive make turning a breeze. This car is loaded with every option Mitsubishi offered in 94 and everything works perfect like new. Very fun, fast, and funny car to drive.
