Lancer Wizzard Of The O.z. — This is a fun city care, good in traffic. It has enough get up and go to have some fun, but it is no racer. It has nice rims and a keyless started added to it, both are just plus to its already cool appearence. Last but not least is the iPod jack and sweet sound system.

02 Oz Mitsubishi Lancer — I have installed some Tein Springs that combine with the stock sway bar of the OZ that produces awesome handling. However its not fast at all, but i wasn't going for speed when I wanted a car. Looks ok for stock oz of course, but there are many bodykits that are available for the car. And of course lots of customization.

315k+ Miles And Going Strong — I learned a long time ago that if you take care of your oil changes, a well built car will last a long time. Very true with this awesome car. Religious with oil changes every 3-4k. At 200k switched to a synthetic blend, now after 300k full synthetic. Also keep up with normal maintenance, belt changes, water pump, Front axle shafts/CV joints. The only thing that really started to go were the CV joints, most others (timing belt, alternator, shocks, etc....) I changed because it was time. Morale of the story: take care of the car and it will take cars of you. This thing still drives beautifully after 300k, better than most "American Made" with half the miles. Still gets 35-40 MPG. Have had very little go wrong with this car. Hesitant to buy it when I did - Brand New, first model year for the Lancer - but I have been pleasantly surprised. I would get another Mitsubishi in a heartbeat. Can't ask for much more. Except a little more pep to match its quick look, but that is minor.

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Es — This is a good, reliable car that is built to last, is reliable, with low maintenance costs and good gas mileage. I have hardly had to put it in the shop at all and I have had it for five years.

Mitsubishi Is A Nice Company. — Great car. Japanies brand are always bulletproff. No matter how hard the conditions are it has always proved its good traction and handling. The only thing that created problems was when it was checked by the local machanic. Otherwise its lots of fun.

Sorry I Sold It — Fun to drive with a great mid range pull. great comfort for long runs. easy to maintain. Spec is not great. no mods done to it.got 35'000 miles out of one set of Dunlops and still plenty of grip left.so it was cheap to run. no repairs to body work no rattles or squeaks after 100,000 miles on clock. sorry I sold it.

Lancer Rockz — No compromise on looks. but the vehicle need to be a bit more powerful. may be a turbo would have helped. maintenance cost is very less comparing to any other vehicle. fuel efficiency is also pretty good. very strong easy to handle. cheap on replacement od spare parts which is a really nice thing to hear

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
