    I just did a build and price on mitsu canada's website. Built a base model es 5 speed. The list the msrp at $10998. When you go to summary, the total comes to $12334. That includes freight and pdi, tire tax, etc... But the one thing they have on there is $100 air conditioning tax for a car that doesn't have air conditioning. Has anyone else had this? Or does nobody buy a new car without ac anymore? I wouldn't cry too much about it but that works out to about 3/4 tank of fuel in my truck, or 2- 30 packs of beers.

Did not check the rear brakes yet but I expect them to be replaced soon as well.
    Rear brakes should be ok, unless someone was e-brake happy? Why do you think fog lights were vandalized? Those things are rock magnets. Our cars don't have foglights but the knock out where the light would be is missing on most cars. We thought people were kicking them in at first but nope.

    Dont concern yourself with the rear drums too much. I had a trusted brake shop owner basically tell me the drums in the bad hardly do anything besides throw in with emergency e-brake manuevers. I changed mine out at 50k miles, they were a little thin, but dont worry about em till your at like 125k miles honestly. Just keep changing those tiny front ones every 30k miles and your good. Driving a 2000lb car can let let you get away with stuff like that.

    $12,334 Canadian is approximately $9,285 American. Apparently, Canadian cars come with a hefty freight charge!

    I would question a $100 A/C tax, too?

    That was previous owner's answer when I asked about the broken fog lights. I ordered new ones from ebay, which was about $100 CAD including duty. I will be installing them sometime in the coming weeks.

    You gave me a good warning though (thank you), before I install them maybe I should put some kind of metallic mesh in front of them to provide protection from rocks. Sounds like a small DIY project.

    @Dirk:

    That is good to know, thank you. I would like to inspect them because there is some sound coming from rear left sometimes when I brake and the brake noise makes me feel ill for some reason. Hopefully it is just lack of lubrication under contact points and not metal to metal condition.
