Pros

Quick, Agile, Neutral Handler

Cons

Gas mileage could be better, small gas tank(13.2)

4 Cyl, 4 Door, Fwd, Wow — This car is great, It's almost time for the first oil change since I have had it and it hasn't gotten old yet. This car is quick with the 2.4L MIVEC powerplant. The FWD isn't the greatest, there ia a little torque steer on hard take offs, but not enough for very many people to notice. A LSD would go nicely up there. The handling around backroad twisties is very neutral. There are some curves that i was afraid to take the Z around at any sort of speed, those are the curves where the Lancer shines. This is a great performaing car. The interior is pretty basic, one complaint is the lack of a map light, but it's no big deal. Fuel Economy isn't the greatest, especially is you have a lead foot. The MIVEC kicks in a 3500RPM and will suck gas like no other past that point. I have gotten around 23-24 MPG with mixed driving.

04 Ralli Art — This is my gorgeous 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralli Art. It has a 2.4L Mivec 4cyl. I have installed a injen cold air intake and a vibrant cat-back exhaust system. It also has an evo 8 spoiler and a front strut bar. Best car i have ever owned, and the most fun to drive. Great for drifting.

Pros

easy to work on, smartly engineered

Cons

short first gear, wide turning radius, its not an evo :D

55

Great Reliable And Fun Car — The build quailty is excellent, its a solid in line four cylinder so its easy to work on - the engineering is smart and takes in consideration that someone will have to fix it at some point. easy to upgrade & modify. Handles pretty good, but has a wide turning radius. The gearbox is very good - not fantastic but its pretty responsive.

Love It :) — I love everything about this car. It's my first Mitsubishi and I'm hooked. It may not have leather seats, heated seats, or dual climate control but I wouldn't trade it for anything(except a newer ralliart or evo of course).

Fun, Sporty, Gas Efficient, Economy Car — This car has lots of zoom power and because of it compactness can zip in and out of traffic well. The seating is a bit boxy, but for the price this is a good basic car to own. Gas mileage is good - average about 28MPG city and Highway. Stats reveals that this is a low cost maintenance car.

I Love My Car — i love my car, its great for running around town, its so fun to drive, servicing is cheap, goes pretty good for a 4 cylinder car, it handles pretty good on the road and they sell cheap, the auto is easier to drive than the manual, but boring on long trips

Quick, Nimble And Fun — Car has quick response even as being stock (mine has an exhaust system, cold air intake and a performance module). Also has amazing suspension as the base model: ES (can really powerslide great!) Appearance just looks simple but great.

Pros

decent power, amazing suspension, cornering and braking.

Cons

needs to be more well tuned, and 130 mph is just way to low of a speed for this car. it could easily handle 140-145 mph. the car barely even hits 5,500 rpms when the needle is burried

45

04 Ralliart — The car handles very well, power needs to be tuned up to around 200 hp/tq. car also need to be dohc instead of sohc. Its very light at 2850, i bought mine for 16,500 brand new with 20 miles on it. the short throw shifter is amazing. You cannot get a better priced car in its class.
