Top performer out of the box, comes maxed out from factory, is # 5 out of Super Street's Top 10 Tuner Cars in America.

Cons

Not a damn thing.

Flippin' Sweet And Sexy! — Performance was amazing! The 4G63 4-cylinder turbo charged engine was a incredible! 271-hp, All- wheel drive, Turbo-charged and inter cooled. I loved everything about this car. This car screamed performance! Nothing on the domestic market could beat it off the line or in acceleration, except its arch-enemy the subaru wrx sti. I topped it out at 157 mph in near stock mode. Gotta Love the Evo. I miss this car so damn much. I'm gonna get another in the not too distant future. Put that on everything.

Pros

2.0 liter Turbo has power

Cons

Transmissin is extremely short and clutch was stiff

35

Fast, Hated The Transmission And Clutch — Fun to Drive, not a daily commuter, and has absolutley no amenities or safety features. Likes having the RecaroRacing seats. Clutch was so stiff it would put your leg to sleep in traffic. Not my favorite car but it was fun

Cons

little torque and power

25

U Can Drive Faster In A Corner, Not In Long Street... — evo has very good handling but the power is not too big enough for drag,, it has 4wd and basic engine rotary.. of use for drive, this car can give perfect response in acorner and the accleration,, cause this car was build for rally..

Fast!

Tranny/ diff is weak without ShepRacing upgrade

Looks Great! — I would own no other car for the money that covers performance, look, and fun to drive! Fast stock without mods. Looks great without mods. Great in the winter to drive. Easily upgradable for reasonable price. Rally racing inspired! World Rally Championship (WRC)

Pros

Power, handling, fun factor

Cons

Poor gas mileage, no cruise control, more like a track car

135

The Everyman's Super Car — The fun factor makes it easy to overlook the shortcomings. Love the drive train durability and power, plus TONS of aftermarket support. Don't like the chintzy interior materials that look cheap. Braking comes alive with the right pads. Gas mileage is not good, but is abysmal (5-7mpg) at the track. Tranny is a weak spot - got a 1st-to-2nd grind.

Expensive to maintain

Evo 8 — An amazing street car with the power of a super car but the possible convenience of a four door sedan. 2.0 liter four cylinder engine feels so amazing with its turbocharged feel. On the street, and for the price, you really can't beat the performance it delivers whether on the track or the street. The only con I can think of is how expensive it is to run, but it is all worth it to take care of this beast.

Your looking for a status car

Solid All Round Performance, No Frills — All round performance wise this car is unmatched. It will do everything well. The best way to appreciate this car is to take it to the track. On top of everything else it will carry you and 3 friends plus luggage comfortably in a pinch. Then drop off your friends a go drive a twisty road.
