Aha. rvr sports gear.

Wachana na hiyo gari.

Weak underframe...gonga pothole, byebye chassis. In fact enda uangalie hiyo gari chini miguua ya mbele uone kama kuna subframe imechomelewa. Halafu drive it usikie. Ama uangalie wear pattern.

Tena fulltime 4wd.

I had a lecturer who bought a one and after a year he bought a vitz and abandoned the RVR. Mistubish can make good and bad cars at the same time, it depends on model.

i have a 1997 model which is the same as 1996 anyway as the series goes back to 1991. i have had it for 3years. i had to change it to manual as i had problems with the auto gearbox. 3years down the line, iam still using it and the only thing i replaced was camshaft sensor after it was damaged by my mechanic. spare parts very rare lakini ukienda kariobangi , they are plenty. mafuta kukunyua depends on the gear. low gear itakunyua zaindi. this car is 1540kg, equivalent to appr. 4 proboxes put together, thats why its 4wd full time to beable to take off very fast and stop at very high speed, its also a sports car

wachana nayo bana. most that you see still running around have toyota engines.

i would not put that engine on my wheelbarrow
putting toyota engine to RVR is crazy. although itatembea, the weight is too much for a toyoya engine. toyota weight is less that 400kg and this car is 1540kg. also toyoya is two wheel drive while this car id 4wd.alot of modification and a lose of power. the best engine to put is manual which does not require any modification coz the engine and gearbox bellhousing is the same.you only need to buy clutch pressure plate, flywheel gear lever , selector rods, etc and you are ready to go
