Hi, mines a 1994 2.0 liter carb with a 5 speed manual. Good driveability and surprisingly comfortable even without a load. The engine has sufficent power for all my driving and is reasonably economical on the highway 10 liters per 100km but a bit heavier in city trafic. Its got 194000 km's on the clock and still going strong , doesn't leak or burn oil. The fact that they made these things with little change for so long gives a good market for used and reproduction parts if and when... (read more)

I have had my Mitsubishi L300 for about 12 years and it has been the best van I have owned. It starts every morning come rain or shine. It had a new radiator last year and has done 210,000 miles I have had many requests to buy it because of its reliability and the 2 side opening doors. I don't race it so have only had one new clutch fitted. I get it serviced every year. It is a 5 speed, 2.5 desiel, LWB. It is a shame they don't make them anymore. (read more)

Mitsubishi L300 is the greatest vehicle I have ever owned. I have treated it badly, not serviced it for a couple of years, done 25,000 miles since that last service and it hasnt missed a beat. Been to Cornwall from Inverness in it with no probs. Its a 1993 with 181,000 miles on it. bought for £400 4 years ago and still going strong. This will be it last year due to rust and i have no idea what is gonna fill its boots?? all the best folks! (read more)

The Mitsubishi L300 is a good all-can-do-car in a classic configuration that disappeared from the new model market unfortunately. Its low weight provides much power, but its fuel consumption is moderate. The handling is good for its low turning radius. (read more)

My 1991 SWB 5-speed manual 2.0L carby Express worked enormously hard and drove faultlessly in both intense city traffic and highway trips (usually with heavy to over-loads) for 420,000km before the engine died. The original engine never blew a head gasket, never used coolant, and only used oil moderately even by the end of its life. Tyre and brake usage was phenomenally low once correctly set and serviced. On the strength of this performance I have recently replaced this van with a 2005 SWB... (read more)

My Mitsubishi L300 used oil at 7000km, had new rings at 9000km, all under warranty. It had a bad rattle in the rear that took months to find, leaf spring banging on something. The gearbox clunky and does not engage smoothly. It does have plenty of grunt and handles better than the early 90's models and is $15,000 cheaper than Toyota's Hiace but I say spend the extra, buy a Hiace. (read more)

I have owned two Mitsubishi L300 vans, 2002 & 2004 models.
I do 72000 k a year on country roads and is a good test of a vehicle.
The 2002 model dropped a tooth in third gear at 55000 k then done a head in at 80000k all covered by warranty.
Had no more trouble and sold it at 125000k
The 2004 model had major gear box problems at 105000k.
Whilst out of warranty to be fair Mitsubishi covered cost of parts but the down side was the three weeks to get parts from Japan and vehicle back on the... (read more)
