2015 Mitsubishi FTO

I am extremely acquainted with FTO’s. I’ve seemed following a couple of to get a few many years now. As I’ve stated prior to on right here, they’re certainly one of my favorite sports activities vehicles and I usually appreciate driving them. Those I appear following have actually been pushed ‘to hell and back’ by their enthusiastic proprietors and however they’ve confirmed completely strong and dependable. Alternators and idle manage valves would be the only weak places – and never costly to repair.
Mitsubishi attempted to help keep the load down, so a few of the trim is really a little bit light-weight, however they appear to dangle with each other.
The driving dynamics are excellent and also the vehicles are a lot fast sufficient – about 180bhp inside a lightish vehicle provides great overall performance and also the engines are extremely easy.

You will find two V6 edition. The GR and also the GPX (MIVEC). MIVEC is really a type of variable valve timing and provides the GPX a bit more energy compared to the GR, additionally, it seems a bit nicer at higher rpm. Everybody states the MIVEC ‘is the 1 to have’ – but they are individuals that do not know a lot about FTO’s. The GR is ‘the 1 to have’ IMHO – it’s only somewhat much less potent compared to the GPX, however the motor is vastly much more sturdy. I have listened to of the honest quantity of MIVEC’s which have thrown their bearings, but by no means a GR. In reality GR engines are so sturdy that secondhand GR engines are really worth little or no simply because there’s practically no need for them.
Much more essential is whether or not they’re guide or Tiptronic. About 90% are Suggestions, however the guide is really a far better generate. In typical with all Mitsubishis the guide gearbox may be instead notchy and obstructive – you place within the thinnest GL4 gearbox oil you are able to discover and reside with it!

Rust could be a issue on vehicles which have been within the United kingdom a very long time, and so they advantage from correct rust injection having a item like Dinitrol.
A awful region for rust will be the roof assistance beams (rust bubbles via around the roof) – this appears to impact only darkish colored vehicles for a few purpose (black, blue and burgundy).

If anybody requirements anymore info about these vehicles then publish up your question and I will solution.

If you are curiosity in purchasing then I occur to understand that certainly one of the main professionals in these vehicles possess a couple of on the market in the second – the organization is Japco – Giles Payne will be the guy to talk to. He has/had 4-5 and I do not believe any are more than £4k.

Incidentally, HJ’s CBCB is really a little bit incorrect on this vehicle – he mentions ‘modifications’ becoming needed to operate within the United kingdom – this isn’t the situation. These vehicles will operate within the United kingdom straight from the boat from Japan. All you’ll need is SVA function on the vehicle lower than ten years previous (mph speedo, rear foglight and so on).
