I have a 4 year old Mitsubishi Colt and have a problem with the drivers seat. As you are sitting on the seat, on the right hand side of the back, fairly low down, there is a piece of metal that has cut through all the wadding/padding and has now cut through the cover of the back of the seat.This piece of metal is reasonably thick, and obviously sharp enough to do this damage. The passenger seat, although not used very often, is beginning to show sings of the same. As I bought this car 2nd hand about 12 years ago, will i have a case to put to mitsubishi. This is obviously a manufacturing fault and possibly dangerous, if i had to stop suddenly!!!

If it engages in 4WD and works noramly in 2 and 4 wheel .
Then I would look to the switches . A lose wire bad connection or if a cable is involved a slight adjustment
Dosn't sound like you have a big problem .You will have to do a little research on how the system works being some are vacuum with cable some electronic even the same vehicle same year im not sure what Mitsubishi used in the colt in that year .
But mitsubishi are build very well good engieneering
its a faulty auto choke not sure on model so dont know if its electrical on machanical the used to be a small spring that was conected to the carbs with water running around a housing unit when the water got hot the spring contracted causing the choke to go on or off but i would bet its the auto choke
Did Mitsubishi find the clutch fault at any of the service intervals on the the car in the first 3 years of ownership - if so why not take the matter to court,have it removed send it to them via a dealership ask their opinion why it has prematurely failed - chances are it was not adjusted properly in the first place,a breakage,a production problem. They will deny it is their problem and blame driver error,you take the matter to a small claims court to recover the repair. Read Mitsubishi clutch failure cover up on the web - it will give you a good idea about the nature of Mitsubishi.
Lift up the carpet in your trunk. In the right
corner, close to the back of the seat, there is a circular 'door' where
the fuel pump is. On top of that door there should be a sticker with
the paint code on it.
