"Colt revolvers" for its more than a century have had variable success: there were good models, and not pretty. What is car "Colt" seventh generation (Z30 model) from the Japanese company Mitsubishi?
Mitsubishi Colt "us" ColtU not as popular as, say, Korean Hyundai-Accent ". However, it does have its fans. As usual, we guide on what to look for when buying a car and what to expect in subsequent operation. GOOD KALIBROn neither small nor big: when the modest external dimensions in the cabin is spacious. But there are other problems. From shaking can suddenly open the glove compartment. This is normal-ceases to hold the Castle. What it did not do until 2006, when an upgraded version: stretched Springs latches, latch themselves napaivali the layer of plastic, making them more zubastymi. And all this was often in vain. Once finalized, fewer complaints, but not enough to talk about solving the problem. Some owners are simpler: put the cover furniture or fancy (used on bags) magnets. Many body parts are galvanized, so look for a rust-an empty undertaking unless the machine has not traveled to the accident. Even the lower strake doors where the paint is rubbed to iron are rusting. Oblupivšeesâ coating on the bumper, in the seam zone with headlights, too does not add the glitz, but avoiding pressure washers on the problem of corrosion you hardly know. If 70-80 thousand. km wipers are slow to move and even the new brushes are crushed glass, remove the wiper blades trapezoid, disassemble and lubricate. Miss the point-the new raskošelites′ or motoreduktor, which can burn due to the increased resistance. Salon looks cute, but over time it appear creaks. Control lamp bulb burn out pretty quickly. In the cabin periodically "crickets", and fight with them as a joke many owners, you can only use dihlofosa. But seriously, it's finding the source, separate the warring elements pasting suede strips. NEED REPAIR SQUEAKS AGAIN SEDLOEsli to 60-70 thousand. km in front suspension came knocking, then most likely worn bushings stabilizer. Racks are silent even after over 150 thousand. miles since done simply and securely: two studs with four rubber buffers on each (as in the "Muscovites" families of 408-2140). Such constructs, devoid of the ball of the fingers, a very die hard, and when they do need to change, consider very carefully to buying new. You can run into the usual bolt bushings from the toilets. These bushings will collapse very soon! Ball joints and steering knuckles are unlikely to zastučat and to the 150 thousand. km. If the front were groaning, variants are possible. When the up-down suspension often Squeak gaufre-anthers of racks or silent blocks upper bearing cups. Treat, greasing the friction surface of the silicone lubricant (do not "or" Sidekick Lithol lubricating oil: oil can corrode rubber). If those when you turn the steering wheel, looking for the culprit in anchor bearing racks. Although certain "primitive (the usual PTFE rings), replacing them is not easy-it is necessary to disassemble the rack, pulled together a working spring and remove the broken. The shock absorbers are designed for a long life and, even from a "sweating", successfully extinguish a vertical ramp up. The trapezoid wiper zakisaût axis. Lubricate them outside, not dismantling, useless. If you want to avoid changing the site, take it off and disassemble. In some instances, when you turn the steering wheel can be heard clicking in steering column lock tab is the steering shaft. Who had time, changed the column with a warranty, and who last had ended, we recommend not to worry: this is not a knock that out soon. At the very least, the official campaign on the revocable defect was not, and therefore, cases of spontaneous lock the steering shaft is too. Sometimes starts posvistyvat′ generator belt. In the drive, no auto tensioner, so as the pulleys and belt tension wanes. If you pull up without postponing, whistle will disappear and the old belt still serve. Some of the "craftsmen", having missed the moment, get rid of the whistle, drag strap, which strongly do not recommend flatly. Cheaper to repair than a new ancillaries, changing the bearings. Our market officially supplied only models with motors 4A90 (1.3 l) and 4A91 (1.5 l). They are reliable and any characteristic sores do not have. TIMING BELT-drive chain, so another care less. Important-make sure coolant level: it sometimes oozes out to hose expansion tank. In this case, remove the water tank and remove the overflow fittings are usually helps. The Russian market supplied the machine with petrol engines only 1.3 and 1.5 l Engines reliable and often run without breakdowns more than 200 thousand. km. POLUAVTOMATV mechanical box F5MG to 150 thousand. miles sometimes sours shaft gear selection mechanism, it is felt on the tugomu movement of the lever. The mechanism itself is relatively inexpensive (replacement costs from 3 thousand roubles), just replace it. Grip the longevity is no different, often change at 60 k. km due to wear on the host drive. Experts strongly recommend to change entire set together with a basket and vyžimnym bearing. Kimagure robot F6SG often appear at the worst possible time: when there is no place to go, forward and reverse gear is not included. Try to kick off the engine, wait a couple of seconds and then try again-sometimes helps. Otherwise, you'll need re-programming of electronic blocks or clutch replacement. The latter is prone to warping the driven disk of coupling, as they say, is. If the background of the input shaft speed exceeds 200 per minute, the transfer will not turn on, because electronics will keep the unit from shock loads. Several Pereprošivkoj increase the threshold for inclusion, and the problem usually disappears. If the problem persists, get ready to change the clutch. Here when installing boxes it is important to clearly meet the shaft concentricity with the slave drive, so as not to bend the nave. It is also advisable to check the pulse of the drive before installing, otherwise the work will go down the drain. When replacing the actuator it is important to combine it with Carter robot. The oval holes there are risks, and the crankcase-response tags. Less crashes of squeezing out clutch actuator (actuator that replaces the pedal). It oblamyvaetsâ work stock, and then any transfer will not turn on. Sometimes the owners do, the actuator when you disconnect the battery terminal immediately after turning off the ignition, which do not flatly until the mechanism completes samokalibrovku, selecting the extreme positions. Typically, it takes 20-30 seconds, but it's better to be safe, after a minute. Therefore, always check the condition of the battery, as the actuator does not tolerate low voltage! In General, a cranky machine. Pleases only that during the operation, it does not require any adjustment (for example, initialization, both Toyotas) and compensate for backlash when worn linings slave drive. From other sites to 100 thousand. km would require the attention of the rear hub, and each time the rear drum brakes (on some versions with motor 1.5 l rear set, disk). Change Hub Assembly and disassemble the brake mechanisms, clear from wear debris and lubricates bed pads, be sure to check lining. Sometimes the age they became loose, and then it is very likely that the brakes will jam (usually unexpectedly). If you are OK, then can depart and all 100 thousand. Resource front brake pads is an average of 30 thousand. km, and the discs are usually enough for three sets of pads. "Colt" is a frequent guest in tire service: stiff suspension and low profile tyres are not the best option for our roads. The bottom line: the engine, suspension and GEARBOX were the competition is quite reliable. But the hastily installed (apparently in favor of marketing) robot, still not there kid sores significantly impair a reputation already in the car. Thank the company "Autoworld" outside Pererva in Marino (Moscow) for assistance in the preparation of the material. Mitsubishi Colt Salon looks cute, but over time it appear creaks. Control lamp bulb burn out pretty quickly. Locking glovebox lid keeps the often not usually change in the collection. For asking 360 rub. but the price of the parts simply unreal-8150. ! At modest external dimensions of body trunk is roomy, the rear couch it in parts. The Russian market supplied the machine with petrol engines only 1.3 and 1.5 l Engines reliable and often run without breakdowns more than 200 thousand. km. When replacing the actuator it is important to combine it with Carter robot. The oval holes there are risks, and the crankcase-response tags. The trapezoid wiper zakisaût axis.

ORIGINAL SPARE PARTS COST, rub. The ESTIMATED COST OVER THREE YEARS of operation (75-150 thousand km), rub.
