Is this your car?
Mitsubishi Chariot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Look for parts also under those names...

PS: This is funny - "...the Hyundai Santamo name was an acronym, meaning "SAfety aNd TAlented MOtor""

For sure it's better than french makes ...

Of course finding parts for a car that was only built (copied ?) for 3 years isn't as easy as for models that fell off the line for 8 years or more in huge quantities.

As for Sonata similarities: the I4 (G4CP) engine range sounds very alike (to the Y3-Sonata: 105hp SOHC, 139hp DOHC).

Mitsubishi parts may fit but it's not guaranteed.

For the wheel bearing seekpart24.com gives Kia Joice, Hyundai Sonata Y3 and Mitsu Santamo as cross reference.
So finding that part should be possible.

Why 3 bearings ? Afair there's only 1 for all the Y3 variants, 1.8I4 up to 3.0V6. But I may be wrong.

Thank for the replies (a little late,i have had a net problem!) will now look up the chariot version, a russian dealer was most helpful ,BUT could not give a price for shipping !! A garage in the uk wants 40 pounds to POST it !!!!!!! I didn,t think a hyundai was worth that much, i only use the car for the shopping (50 Km) I wish i had kept the jap car and changed the plates Maybe the problem finding a wheel bearing for this model is that it has ABS !? Hyundai in spain have never bothered to reply,the UK cannot help because this model was made for europe,

Some parts i find arw very sumilar to mitsubishi and maybe made only to fit Hyundai .I was after exhaust looks identical but always a purpose hiccup in the design so they cant be interchanged although thy basically a Lancer motor 2.0l
