Sweety — I like the power this little car has, not at all bad for a 2002 with 200,000 plus miles on her. The little body style is nice and sporty to me. I am not too fond of the fact I keep having to replace things on it. However, I do realize that is all part of buying used or owning period. Woe is me, lol. If times were better I would find more pleasure in replacing parts and tricking my lil ride out.

Overall Perfect First Car And Family Car. — I loved the fact that there is so much customization parts for this car also the handling is great, mpg is great. Just want a new car for a new look. But I would recommend this car to anybody. Especially if they like tuners.

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.

Japanese Collectible — performance wise is quite ok for a daily driver. needs a little body work because of its age. but over all, it rides well and fun to drive.it could keep up with b16 hondas.but gas mileage will decrease if youd put the pedal to the metal..

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.)

Mean Palm Beach Es By Charlieboy24
