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!!!

Pros

Decent overall power and good torque.

Cons

Cant really think of one.

25

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.

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 interiors are outdated..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....

Economic

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.

Pros

Ultra smooth gear changes with no jerks and the car can adapt to your driving style!

Cons

less resale than other vehicles

25

Extremely Reliable In All Aspects! — Likes: 1)INVECS-III CVT sport gearbox 2)Air conditioning 3)Rear head room since my head touches the roof of civic 02-06. 4)More advanced suspension as compared to competing vehicles. It has a coiled spring Multi-link Suspension which is tuned to handle the car superbly and provide relief from bumps simultaneously! Dislikes: 1)Once you drive it, it doesn't leave anything to dislike!!!!!!

slow

Its Ok I Guess — waay to slow for me and its an automaitc :(. build quality is nice. appearance is good on the outside but the dash board inside could use some help. cost of ownership is not bad considering i get bout 30 miles to the gallon. even though this car is slow it is very fun to drive because it handles amazingly
