Oil leaks

I got my 380 second hand 3 years ago, and at the time I couldn't have been happier. However, just 18 months later, the engine melted because of an undetected oil leak. I had the engine replaced at great expense, and now the new engine is doing the same thing - so beware! In all other respects it's been an excellent, comfortable car, but I need something that doesn't constantly break down.
Comfortable seats, sunroof, great suspension, great power for overtaking
Constant oil leaks

Driving a car with a 3.8L V6 in the city is going to cost you a lot no matter what the car. Not a valid negative point. Otherwise you were simply unlucky with the gearbox. Bad luck mate.

The day Mitsubishi stopped making the 380 was a very sad day, Mitsubishi has finally got it all right but die to the competition of Ford & Holden they decided to drop production. The 380 goes so well, the engine is strong and fast, but tends to drink a little more than the Holden’s, especially the new SIDI Holden’s. The 380 base cars had a lot of basic features that made it a very well equipped car, the VRX had more toys and gadgets than James Bond himself! Long live the 380, but how much longer will parts be made for the 380’s on the road – worth taking the risk... You’re the buyer
Well made, very well equipped indeed!!!
Not made anymore, how long will parts be available???

It doesn't matter...they don't seem to need any parts, they have proven to be ultra reliable.

Agree. All the parts you'll ever need are on eBay. The car will die before it needs more parts than that. That is pretty much guaranteed.
