We consider the initial value problem associated to a coupled system of modified Korteweg-de Vries type equations
$ \begin{equation*} \begin{cases} \partial_tv + \partial_x^3v + \partial_x(vw^2) = 0,&v(x,0) = \phi(x),\\ \partial_tw + \alpha\partial_x^3w + \partial_x(v^2w) = 0,& w(x,0) = \psi(x), \end{cases} \end{equation*} $
and prove the local well-posedness results for a given data in low regularity Sobolev spaces
$ H^{s}( \rm{I}\! \rm{R})\times H^{k}( \rm{I}\! \rm{R}) $
,
$ s,k> -\frac12 $
and
$ |s-k|\leq 1/2 $
, for
$ \alpha\neq 0,1 $
. Also, we prove that: (I) the solution mapping that takes initial data to the solution fails to be
$ C^3 $
at the origin, when
$ s<-1/2 $
or
$ k<-1/2 $
or
$ |s-k|>2 $
; (II) the trilinear estimates used in the proof of the local well-posedness theorem fail to hold when (a)
$ s-2k>1 $
or
$ k<-1/2 $
(b)
$ k-2s>1 $
or
$ s<-1/2 $
; (c)
$ s = k = -1/2 $
