Why have Mitsubishi not included an AMT transmission on this range of 3 doors? It's a great car but without an automatic diesel as a wheelchair user forget it.
I need the larger doors to get my wheelcahir close enough to transfer in comfort.
Reading other peoples' reviews I am dissapointed that many people dislike certain qualities of this car. I seem to find that the reviewers are forgetting that this is a small car for practicality and performance, which I believe Mitsubishi has done exellently. I find the seats comfortable - other reviewers say they are 'hard', but it seems they are trying to compare them with those on large expensive models. The standard equipment is very good, with electric windows, keyless entry, air-con and a CD player. Another useful accesory is the power socket in the boot, which can be very usefull when transporting food or charging batteries etc. Driving the car was very pleasant - the only problem was that the brakes were very strong and took some getting used to, but that may be my own personal problem! Changing gears was smooth and acceleration was fine. I would recommend this car to a small family as it is practical, economical and has space for the kids and shopping.
I totally disagree with what they say about the road noise and that the 1.3 has to be worked. I find the car very good, and at the moment I have no faults with it.
I used to have a Toyota Yaris before this and the Colt is very much on a par with the Yaris. In fact, I would say it is much better than the Yaris. I think its trim is better, it handles better and it looks better all round. It's a great car for the money you spend on it. I would definitely have another one and I recommend it. It looks great in the black which I have.
I own the 1.5 Diesel Allshift version (which isn't listed on the What Car site for some reason).
Apart from the initial engine rattle when you start the car you wouldn't know it's a diesel by the way it drives.
It's nippy when you need it to be and I'm averaging 53 MPG. Other plus points are the leg room in front and back. If I have any criticisms it would be that the interior is very plastic, the seats are a little over-firm and the front pillars take some getting used to as they do obscure the driver's view somewhat.
Being a Mitsubishi I'm hoping it will be as reliable as my previous car (also a Mitsubishi) - if it is I'll be very pleased.
