I’ve been maintaining an unhealthy obsession the Mitsubishi Cordia for a while now, but what about the hatchback Cordia’s sedan sibling, the Tredia? Very, very few Tredias made it into the United States, and I thought I’d never see one in a wrecking yard… but look at what I just found in California!
Americans had been buying Mitsubishis bearing Dodge and Plymouth badges for a decade before Mitsubishi brought the Tredia, Cordia, and Starion to these shores.
In Japan, Mitsubishi had “Mister Tredia” selling these cars, but that concept didn’t survive the ride across the Pacific.
When this car goes to The Crusher, it will probably lower the total count of American Tredias by 20 percent. I’m hoping that one of the remaining four examples is a Tredia Turbo.
