This was the first car I ever owned, and it's still going strong 15 years later. They just don't make them this durable anymore. I've only experienced a couple of major repairs in the last 15 years since I've owned it; and so far, it's still running well. The only negative thing I have to say is that it's old, and most of the minor things don't function well (i.e. radio, cassette player, etc.).
Story
The automatic seatbelts throw a lot of people off. I always "forget" to tell people riding in the passenger's seat how the seatbelt works because it's amusing to see their reaction (have to open the door before the seatbelt moves). My favorite was when someone climbed out of the seatbelt before opening the door and then getting trapped by it again as it moved toward them.
Pros
I love that it's a hatchback. It's small and compact, so I can fit into tight spaces, but it's spacious enough when I lay the backseats down that I've been able to move entire apartment's worth of stuff multiple times in my life. I also love its durability; not many over-25-year-old cars are still on the road with as much functionality as my Mitsubishi has.
Cons
The radio went out years ago, and I have consistent problems with the driver's side door. The door doesn't always latch all the way without some effort and the "door open" light doesn't shut off automatically, which can drain the battery. Also, it's too small to actually comfortably fit four people, though there are four seats.
