    Default Views on Mitsubishi Minica...

    Dear PakWheelers,

    I need to ask for your suggestions and valuable input on a decision regarding purchase of Minica. Before I go any further, please know that I am only asking about your views regarding Mitsubishi Minica and not to compare it to Daihatsu Mira or any other small Jap car.

    I have been told about the issues with Minica which range from lack of resale value to unavailability of spare parts.

    What are your views on this car?

    PS. I currently drive a Mitsubishi Lancer (2004) and have had it for the past four years and I absolutely love this car. I am looking to purchase the Minica as a second car.

    Look forward to hearing your views.

    Thank you all in advance.

    Happy Wheeling.

    @Tabish1 Totally understand that part. But I am worried about the resale issue and more so about the parts availability issue. Any idea on that?

    Before buying any car ask yourself these questions

    1 Can you find ALL spares for it - even little clips, pipes etc. brand new? - maintenance has a lot more to do than filters, oil and plugs.

    2 Can you afford to have it repaired to 100% specification in reasonable time?

    the poster owns a lancer and still wants a minica, seems like u got bit by the mitsu bug! *Respect* But on a serious note, don't buy alien 660 cars.. stick to the ones which are usually seen like mira or jdm alto... stay away from lemons like minica and cervo and ekwagon lol
