Thoughts on restoring the Mitsubishi “box-type” Lancer — a non-expert car review

Just last week, some friends asked me if restoring the box type Lancer would be worth it. One friend was particularly interested in giving a car like this to his “first-time-driver” son for his college commute. It got me thinking about my very first car which I got almost 20 years ago. Here’s my non-expert take on this “almost-classic” car.

The first car I ever bought was a 1986 Mitsubishi Lancer SL with manual transmission. I got it in 1994. At that time, it was a popular car. It was boxy and it was cool. During that time, a brand new Lancer EL cost P300,000. The then-8-year-old box-type was selling for P150,000.

First Quarter Car Sales Up by 8.2%

The Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) said that the Philippines car March sales figures were up by 8.2 percent compared to last year.

There were only 33,536 sold last March 2010, while there were 36,293 units sold March 2011. This is considered good news despite all that has happened to the PH auto industry.

“Currently, vehicles are available for sale. We are hopeful that the situation will improve soon enough even with limited operation levels to help stem any shortage,” group president Elizabeth Lee said.

Car manufacturers like Toyota was the top seller, with Mitsubishi following second, while Honda’s sales actually declined by 17.9 percent.

Local Car Supply Problems After Japan Quake

The Japanese massive earthquake and tsunami damaged not only Japan, but also its economic structure as its car manufacturing sector also took a large hit–resulting in a tsunami of its own reaching even the Philippines.

Local car manufacturers are having a hard time getting parts to complete cars since Japanese car manufacturers are still assessing the damage wrought upon their areas. Damage to the structure and supplies may take some time.

All the Japanese car manufacturers were affected, some more than others. Honda Motor Corp. had more than a hundred suppliers located near the quake and tsunami centers. It just recently resumed operations. Toyota Motor Corp. would be less affected since most of their parts makers were located in the northeast side of Japan. Mitsubishi Motors fared the best since they are the farthest from the epicenter.

The Dreaded Engine Computer Box

Ask anyone on what is the most sensitive part of modern cars these days and you may perhaps get the computer box as the answer. Rightfully so, it is considered the heart of modern cars and once it gives way, you are in big trouble.Unlike older cars, car computer boxes of newer models from Mitsubishi, Honda or Toyota are hard to replace. In fact, that is your only option since they cannot be repaired. There are people in Banawe who may claim it can be fixed but if you want to take that risk and solicit worse problems for your car, then by all means grab it. But the reality of it all is that if other parts of your car can be fabricated, your computer box cannot.

The normal occurrences that would contribute towards car computer boxes being damaged severely include:

1. Floods or being soaked
2. Length of use
3. Wrong installation or has been tampered with

Not even the usual electricians would dare tinker with it for the reason that they know how sensitive this part it and how expensive it would take to replace it. The price could go as far as a second hand car!

So if your computer box goes on the blink, better start saving for a new one. There are no second hand ones that can last in the same way that your old computer box was. Certainly, it is a part that can be expensive to replace but it may take eternity to wreck depending on how you take care of your car.
