What should I look for in a used Mitsubishi Colt hatchback?
Japanese manufacturers always lead the way for reliability, and Mitsubishi is no exception. The company has an excellent record for mechanical reliability, and we haven't heard about any particular problems with the Colt.
However, the firm didn't fare quite so well in a JD Power Customer Satisfaction Survey. Out of 30 car-makers, Mitsubishi only placed 28th, but the results that led to that position included only the older Carisma and Space Star models.
