What's the used Mitsubishi Space Wagon MPV like?

Not to be confused with the Space Star or Space Runner, the Mitsubishi Space Wagon is a proper people carrier, with the option of six or seven seats. The layout is either 2+2+2, with captain's chairs throughout, or 2+2+3, with a bench across the back.

In or out of town, the MPV cruises happily along, making it a popular used choice for families wanting a budget runabout. The soft suspension makes it wallow about on rougher roads, and you'll crash through potholes, but it can cope with fast, smooth trips comfortably. There's a bit of wind and road noise at the motorway speed limit, but generally it's a peaceful enough experience.

Excellent steering wheel and seat adjustment keep mum and dad happy, although the front chairs are a bit spongy and short of support. However, the dashboard layout is sensible, albeit very drab by modern standards, and the high-mounted gearstick gives room in the footwells for odds and ends.
