Mitsubishi does not have any cars in CarMD's Top 100 and has scarcely any cars on U.S. roads. CarMD cites its top-ranked 2009 Galant among the Top 30% of vehicles on the road, but that vehicle's been discontinued. Mitsubishi's posted a 4% sales increase through the first 11 months of 2013, but it's sold only about 56,000 vehicles in the U.S. By comparison, Ford's sold more than 64,000 F-Series trucks here over the same span. It doesn't help that 18% of Mitsubishis require a $374 oxygen sensor replacement and a ridiculous 12% need the catalytic converter changed to the tune of $1,100. It's Mitsubishi's first appearance on this list, but if its new Mirage subcompact and slate of hybrids doesn't pan out, it may be the last.
