DiD Carisma 65-53 MPG on the motorway. what is wrong is poor rear visibility, boring, spartan interior, rear shelf folding problem - you need to fold the seat first. still talking about a simple car… Read Full Review

My Carisma is built in 2003, Born the Netherlands. 1.9 DID renault diesel. With a turbo on it. The car had 178.000 km on it when I bought it. It is quite strong and heavy compared to earlier cars but handles easily. The car had been used by police in Netherlands. The trick was that I bought the car just before the timingbelt had to be replaced at 180K km, no nice surprise. For the distance I drive, 30 000 km a year, it is a good choice. Even though every year something big breaks down, like an… Read Full Review

For a budget all round Diesel, this Mitsubishi Carisma 1.9 DID Elegance family car is an exellent buy. It is well equiped and very reliable and extremely economical.
It is not a diesel TDI type engine as in VW but is still fast for a diesel, infact even by the book the DID is faster in pick-up and top-speed than the petrol version. In reality I can agree!!
I tour germany, cruising at 120MPH in cruise control with no problems. I have had no handling problems at all.
I think (know) the… Read Full Review
