(31st October 2017) 2010 Mitsubishi Colt Petrol Manual Hatchback by Marky
Fantastic underated car for the money, having owned a 1.3 CZ2 with its chain driven engine, reliability was excellent,the rear wheel bearings being the only weak point in the Colt range. Moving onto the 1.5 Turbo petrol Ralliart version and it is an absolute hoot to drive, the noise of the turbo spooling up makes the commute to work a far more enjoyable experience than in any other car. Surprises more than enough German saloons at the lights, largely due to it barely weighing over a ton (0-60 in 7.4 seconds). Reliability, again is on par, timing belt requires changing at around 50k miles. Economy averages around 30-40mpg pending how you drive. Not as refined as the new fiesta ST or polo GTi, few rattles from the interior etc. Seats lovely and supportive, everything works as it should, no frills, a hark back to the old 106 GTi days. Very few left on the roads becoming quite the collectors car.
