Don't Let This Happen To You — My family used to own a Gallant, so I was open-minded when a rear-end collision took out my Cobalt's trunk and let me try another car for a while. While the Schmidt family's insurance policy repaired my Cobalt, I experienced a poorly built Lancer. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. The dash is unattractive and unconventional. I don't like the exterior at all, partly because the body looked so tall and partly because the geometry just looked weird. Since it was a rental, I had no problem pushing it to the limit. It accelerates well, but it gets up to a low top speed. Driving to St. Louis from Kansas was not fun in seats that made me want to see a chiropractor. Don't get one of these.

Pros

Engine has potential given you can find mods and money, suspension is best Ive felt in a while.  You actually feel sorry for the other guy if involved in a Car acciedent.

Cons

Mechanical is a little lacking, cost a little more then the car to repair

Economic Grocery Hauler — What can I say when Mitsu says economy they mean it. Out of the Three Mitsubishi Cars Ive owned this one breaks on me more than I would like it to. Ive already had to replace the clutch twice, and I have to replace the Cat converter, fix the A/C , replace break clips, amongst other wear and tear items. On the plus side it is a beautiful white, mitsu never skimps on paint. As always a little low on the HP but makes up for it in torque so launching is a specialty, and the suspension is well set up for a econo car. I can enter and hold corners faster then most people on the road, or maybe thats because Im one crazy SOB!!!

heavy and bulky :(

Ultimate Street Car — fun to drive, good acceleration, little bit underpowered when compared to other rivals, really good handling... it will stick on to the road no matter how sharp the corner is... interiors are outdated.. maintenance is less but fuel consumption is not great... especillay when you rev it hard....

Decent overall power and good torque.

Cant really think of one.

Good Car As A Daily Driver, Works Great With Future Mods. — This car is a nice car. The power is decent from stock, but the torque makes up for the lack of power. The gear ratio is nice and tight often times makes me wish I had a 6th gear. Handles the corners like a champ for a FWD. This RA still sits in the shadow of its bigger brother the Evo.

good looking, light weighed, fuel efficient.

Cons

accelaration

35

I Just Love It !!! — Well, i love my car i have always driven a lancer even my dad he always prefers lancer on any other car of its range. I love its style and my car has agun metallic colour which is very rare to find. The only thing i have a problem is its CVT gears, which is beneficial for fuel consumption but the you don't get the accelaration we used to get in the older models.And now it has again been replaced in the latest model. Which i love it really. Specially the boss sub woofer and those lambo style behind the steering wheel gears. But still i would rate my car 8/10

Pros

Economic

25

Red Bull Stock — Lancer is an economic and environment friendly car. Its petrol driven. Acceleration and braking on dubai roads is quite exiting. Parts are easily available. its just AED 40000.00 Its just for a high output amplifier and a 6 cd changer.
