Description: This past week Suzuki announced it was leaving the US automotive market due to slow sales and a lack of product. Simply put, it was no longer competitive against not only other Asian automakers, but A...

Since Mitsubishi has a weak sales in the US. The Sales of Mitsubishi in the Philippines is stronger than the US.

Not the EVO!!!!!!!
Oscar Chacon Jan 16, 2013
@Brandon. I've seen a good amount of Mustangs on the side of the road, new models included. So I guess they are POS as well.
Brian Johnston Nov 13, 2012
Brandon for a DD sometimes it's more intelligent to buy a 4 door car that you can drive in the snow than a rear wheel two door.
Brandon Manworren Nov 11, 2012
35K for a POS or 35K for a Mustang V8? Yeaa if ur a rice rocket lover I guess I know which you'd choose.
Jason Brown Nov 11, 2012
Mitsubishi is just putting there resources in their other divisions. They gave up the heavy industry and steel in the US. Now focusing more in Financial. Still the largest conglomerate in Japan and will be for a while.
Aaron Cordroch Nov 11, 2012
I got a wrx over the evo cause I asked if I would buy any other Mitsubishi?.. They're trash. Subarus are on the road with 200k miles. Evo is decent but they make shit otherwise
Matt Piccolo Nov 11, 2012
I don't see how the price is wrong? For 35k, I think it's a great car!
Frederick Perez Nov 10, 2012
In Asia Mitsubishi sells like a hot pancakes, here in U.S.. blah
Brian Johnston Nov 10, 2012
The evo is awesome. But the price is wrong.
Aaron Crisp Nov 10, 2012
'99 3000GT VR4 is the sexiest thing, don't know how anyone can dislike that.
Cody Johnston Nov 10, 2012
the Evo looks like it got rear-endedand all the other models are unappealling. I really dislike Mitsu now that I think about it.
Serge Pankratov Nov 10, 2012
I will only miss the Evo. Nothing else that Mitsu made ever appealed to me. Suzuki bikes are great though :) love my 07 Gixxer 750!
Stephen Tyler Learn Nov 10, 2012
I dont like the evo either. The newest generation is ugly and the car cost 40 grand so it has some serious competition in its price range
Stephen Tyler Learn Nov 10, 2012
@swarun Suzuki stated that only the automotive part is leaving. All motorcycle atv and boat production will stay just the way it is
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 10, 2012
C'mon Cody you like the Evo stop fronting
Cody Johnston Nov 10, 2012
i wish they would leave, I'm tired of looking at their ugly junk.
Blake Antil Nov 10, 2012
Hell yeah Mazda. But I could care less about Suzuki. I just want Mitsubishi to stay the Evo X is awesome.
Swarun Kulasekaran Nov 10, 2012
I hope suzukis motorcycle division doesn't leave the US!! I want a GSXR as my next bike!
Terrance Parker Nov 10, 2012
That will be a sad day!!
Dave Larby Nov 10, 2012
I like the Evo, but it's a bit flawed.. Interior needs work and the GSR desperately needs a 6th gear. Plus they could do with bringing the FQ models stateside too. Their after sales service could do with an overhaul too.
William Downs Nov 10, 2012
This shouldn't even be to big of a surprise, there cars aren't to reliable, there not on the cheap side either, plus they have no recall performing or good looking cars besides the evo, and 1 car isn't enough to save a brand, Mitsubishi gave up on the auto industry plain and simple.. had a good run but only the strong survive, and Mitsubishi ain't one of them
Alex Semaan Nov 10, 2012
In my opinion, i definitely think Mazda is up there.
Jack Howard Nov 10, 2012
Well, to sell more, they need to broaden their horizon. My mom got the new Impreza Sport, and its great
Jack Howard Nov 10, 2012
AND SUBARU! BUt there is no way Subaru would leave at this point
Nick Sti Nov 10, 2012
Subaru is on the smaller side, but Toyota owns 20% of the company. Subaru did very well, even in the recession. Sadly, their newer cars are getting more and more like Toyotas.. Except for the WRX and turbo Foresters
Bala Uncc Nov 10, 2012
Nissan?
Antonio Falsetti Nov 10, 2012
Subaru?
Lamborghini Diablo Apr 13, 2013
Don't go Mitsubishi!
Willy Wu Jye Jan 27, 2013
Evo is the light reason fans keep buying from Mitsubishi. Hope they will change the design though because they are late late late
Willy Wu Jye Jan 27, 2013
I have owned an Evo X for 4 years since 2008, and worked my way up to 500whp with it. The car is great, but if you already have experience with turbo cars, mitsubishi is offering the first step with the evo. Sure it handles great but that is all Mitsubishi is offering with evos. Except if you have money to invest, The little 2.0L really is the limit. For 35k there are some great competition out th...
Maritsa Zarate Nov 16, 2012
The evo is insane 1 of my favorite cars, it will kill almost any car in the street
Terrance Parker Nov 11, 2012
I see quite a few in Colorado they get a workout with these twisty mountain roads!!
Byakka Hirakawa Nov 11, 2012
Yea the evos around lower ohio r in the mid 30k
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
I can concur with Shelby. I went and looked at new Evos before I purchased my Corvette, and there weren't any on the lot under $40k. They're nice cars for what they are, just overpriced immensely. I scared the guy at Carmax in one of these also. :)
Shelby Cassandra Nov 11, 2012
@Matt. Not many people drive Mitsubishis in East Lansing. I see a lot of rich college kids cars though. But again, people have no need for track cars here. They'd rather do a hardcore burnout in front of campus security any day of the week.
Matt Piccolo Nov 11, 2012
@ Shelby, the dealer near me has one for 31k, 35k and 38k...The dealer near you must SUCK, lol
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
Are posting prices at other dealers ranging from MSRP to 32-33k.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
Price is also very dependent on the dealer and area. When I ordered my BRZ payed MSRP of 28k with my options. That means I was out the door with less then 29k; however, people in the FT86 forum
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
I agree with Dan. Iv never seen an Evo close to that around here in Dover.
Daniel Eads Nov 10, 2012
Auto trader and other websites like that. My point is that every car gets marked up, there's taxes on every car and its different for every location. So when comparing cars for the price, use the MSRP. It's what it's for!
Shelby Cassandra Nov 10, 2012
It isn't markup "crap". People go by markup because it is absolutely there. The closest Mitsubishi dealer to me has one for 46k BEFORE tax. The cheaper one they have is 41k and it has no options. Tell me again how you found one.
Daniel Eads Nov 10, 2012
I've about had enough of this mark up crap. I just looked online, 2013 Evo 32k. That's before the tax but you pay taxes ON EVERY CAR. This thing will murder almost everything on the track so it's a very good deal if you just want speed.
David Guerrero Nov 10, 2012
Its not a sports car. Sports car have 2 doors. This is something else. Something beautiful.
Shelby Cassandra Nov 10, 2012
Yes. Technically it starts at 35. Add dealer markup and tax it is at least 40k. If you get it fully loaded it probably costs much more than that still.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
The point of this car is NOT the interior, but I would expect a better fit and finish.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
I think the "base" Evo starts at 33-35 range. I think that is decent. But I wouldn't pay 40 for lighter wheels and a flappy paddle, twin clutch bullshit.
Shelby Cassandra Nov 10, 2012
Didn't exactly mean that it wasn't impressive, but for the 40k starting price it should definitely be much more than it is. There is no denying that the price is insane for what you get.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
(6cly eclipse included) the only exception being the GSX.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
If it was a wanna be sports car it would have 2 doors, n/a 4cly, and fwd. Oh, kind of like the late eclipse -- exactly like the late eclipse.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
And though I'm a Subaru fan and dislike Mitsubishis immensely, the Evo has always talked the talk and walked the walk -- plus some.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
Wanna be sports car? This car was born from rallying...
Aaron Crisp Nov 10, 2012
@Swarun I own one and I'd like them to stay. But only is they update there line up and come out with more sport models.
Matt Wolodkiewicz Nov 10, 2012
Bye bye see ya :)))
Author Norman R. Colson Nov 10, 2012
I can't afford one. Lol. The Evo I mean. That's the one on my list
Swarun Kulasekaran Nov 10, 2012
Lol..all of you guys want Mitsubishi to stay, but none of you actually own them... No wonder they are leaving
Daniel Eads Nov 10, 2012
Shelby, I'm not really sure what you're calling a sports car but by anyone else's standards this is.
Brendan Bell Nov 10, 2012
If this leaves, I'll be really sad....
Nick Sti Nov 10, 2012
Shelby..... LOL
Antonio Falsetti Nov 10, 2012
These cars are unique because of their awd. Nobody else makes an awd sport compact except Subaru. I hope they stay.
Matt Piccolo Nov 10, 2012
I would REALLY miss these if Mitsubishi left
Shelby Cassandra Nov 10, 2012
Always looked nice, but it is kind of a wannabe sports car if kept at stock.
Justin Tucker Nov 10, 2012
If Mitsubishi leaves the US and we don't get any more evils and possibly new sports cars....I'll just stop living
Stephen Cobbs Nov 10, 2012
They can put whatever wheels they want, I just want them to stay in the US.
Kyle McCullough Nov 10, 2012
As great as this car is, it would benefit immensely from different wheels
Description: While Mazda is apparently on track with its new SkyActiv technology and growing relations with Fiat, Mitsubishi is left with no large corporate partner, no truly innovative technology and no exciting ...

Skyactiv <3
William Downs Nov 11, 2012
One car can't save this brand, they need a complete overhaul, even as it stand its a rarity I see any new Mitsubishi, usually an eclipse once in a while I'll see a lancer or evo, they killed them selves sadly.
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
They could have a base with a turbo 4 producing around 280hp and a V6 with 320 or so. And it needs to be aggressive and competitively priced, and abra cadabra, you have a nice looking, profitable car that would put Mitsubishi back in the spotlight.
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
I agree with Aaron completely. Mitsubishi is doing horrible because their cars are boring, and unattractive. They are so opposed to sports cars that it makes them so dull in today's market. They need to develop a new Eclipse that is RWD.
Aaron Crisp Nov 10, 2012
Come out with a new 2 door RWD coupe then Mitsu!!!!!
David Justice Nov 10, 2012
Damn that misleading headline. Carbuzz, you are good at that!
Matt Piccolo Nov 10, 2012
GOOD!!! Don't leave lol!!

Luis Daniel Angilello Nov 11, 2012
Mitsubshi beeds to bring back the Montero/Pajero back to the US, that's their flagship (SUV). It would definitely sale and compete strongly with the Toyota 4runner.
Aaron Crisp Nov 10, 2012
A new 3K VR4 (priced right) would save this companies ass! I love my VR4!
Mark Fei Ling Nov 10, 2012
BTW, anyone see the new outlander? That car suks!
Mark Fei Ling Nov 10, 2012
Yeah!!! Bring back the 3000GT VR4!!!
Zach ComptonAss Gathercole Nov 10, 2012
Bring back the 3000gt
Chris Friend Nov 10, 2012
Kill the i-MiEV, add a coupe/convertible, and a Large family Sedan
Antonio Falsetti Nov 10, 2012
Need more models. More models equals more choices.
Kyle McCullough Nov 10, 2012
Too bad the outlander sport is terrible
Al Tungupon Nov 22, 2012
This angry little thing needs Ralliart/Evo running gear. It would probably give the X1 and Q3 a run for their money.
Matt Piccolo Nov 10, 2012
I've always liked these, thought they were one of the more aggressive suv's
Al Tungupon Nov 22, 2012
Instead of being developed as an Evo coupé, the Eclipse only grew bigger and heavier to become much like a two-door Galant. The second generation was the best, with 4WD and turbo engines to boot.
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
The GT doesn't look bad. They are pretty quick for fwd cars too. 0-60 of 5.6 seconds. Pretty respectable.
Al Tungupon Nov 22, 2012
Dear Lottery, I've been a good friend to you. You know who should be driving the Super Veyron, I know you do. It shouldn't be so hard copying the numbers I'm about to put down, right? Sincerely, Al
Al Tungupon Nov 22, 2012
It's a gorgeous thing, miles better than the Hyundai Genesis, but the latter drove the correct pair of wheels. The last Eclipse is just a big FWD coupé. Two-doors are supposed to be sports cars, so it should have been either RWD or 4WD. Sadly, it just went the way of the Solara and Monte Carlo.
William Downs Nov 11, 2012
Just Google eclipse ralliart concept if u don't know
William Downs Nov 11, 2012
@Colby... what's funny Bout that statement is Mitsubishi made a 4wd model of this car, shit looked great but like u said, instead of giving people a different option for performance other then the evolved, they didn't build it and now look what's happning
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
Picture this: This exact car, 19 inch glossy 10 spoke wheels, lowered one and a half inches, black halo headlights, dark carbon fiber hood, black tail lights, black spoiler and deck lid, tinted windows, and a lip on the bottom of the front bumper. :)
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
overshadow the Lancer Evo because that is their flagship car. Same reason Chevrolet dialed back the Camaro ZL1, so that it would not get the same attention as the flagship ZR1.
Colby Church Nov 11, 2012
I'd rather build the V6 in this. This car goes 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and it's fwd. the Evo engine doesn't really produce as much power, it's faster because of the AWD. Mitsubishi is stupid for not making an AWD eclipse, but they didn't want it to
David Justice Nov 10, 2012
VR4 the whole lineup.
Michael Montefusco Nov 10, 2012
At Russ: Join club4g, they do it semi often. The price in the end is just wont worth it.
Aaron Crisp Nov 10, 2012
Russ that sounds amazing!
Russ Sugar Nov 10, 2012
Always dreamed of putting Evo guts into this thing. It would be perfect.
