great car by Eric in CA on 05/10/2013. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: i have SL version which is the middle one, but the car is very fast, nice styling, i love the gauges in the center .
Cons: the only con i can think of is getting in and out and the room in the back seat.
Overall review: i would recommend to anybody that is in to sports cars or just have never rode in one .

Fighter-Jet Car by JSomber from Jacksonville, TX on 08/07/2009. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: It has an aggressive body, and with the right tires, the stance is absolutely fierce. I gave mine true-Dual exhaust and it sounds like a very angry T-Rex. Steel frame with a roll-cage built in, so it's SUPER safe. I've seen these get t-boned by 18-wheelers, and the hood and trunk area fold in, but the cab is ALMOST unscathed.
Cons: It's heavy.... Very heavy.... 3850 lbs with a full tank of gas Heavy. Which is the cause of the Cons for it. The handling isn't as sharp as I like. The acceleration is great, but not as good as it could be if it were lighter. Changing the spark-plugs is the most grueling effort ever as it has a lateral v6. As is changing the timing belt. both jobs require removing half the engine.
Overall review: It's a great car. It has it's problems, but for how old it is, they're minimal. And it looks freakin' SWEET!

The Best Car by Devin on 11/03/2008. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT Base, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I love this car it has a lot more pep than what i thught it would for just being a base. the interior is great and the exterior is flashy
Cons: it would be nice to have leather seats and i have had some timing belt problems (make sure you replace every 100,000 miles and water pump [make sure its the right one]) and i have some problems in the steering
Overall review: I LOVE IT!! overall really nice car!

" Nice Toy Car" by Dave - Dingmans Ferry, PA on 05/27/2005. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4, Owned 3 years.
Pros: The power and performance are amazing. The Twin Turbos and AWD system helps with quick passing power. Driving uphill, downhill and cornering is thrilling. The Cock-pit like feeling and smooth shifting gives me total control. The interior and exterior appearance is great looking and definitely more appealing than most newer sport cars.
Cons: It cannot fly if I'm stuck in traffic.
Overall review: I like my car because the overall looks and performance are amazing. This was a vehicle ahead of its time. After eight years, it still is. The power and handling is awesome. I have driven similar sport cars and none have come close to the experience I get every time I drive my 3000GT, which is usually on sunny weekends. This is the ultimate sports car.

Might want to rethink this. by Joe on 01/02/2004. Trim: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL, Owned 7 years.
Pros: Great styling, nice interior.
Cons: Lots of road noise, in for alot of service, engine makes ticking noises.
Overall review: While it is a great looking car more horsepower would come in handy. The weight helps in making the car not bounce around like a tin can like many other sports cars do. On the side of reliability, Mits is well known in the internet circle for making the 3K's defective lifters that make "clicking" noises. Also, my trans and many interior electronics have needed replacement\repair. My chevy has a better track record.
