Four Wheel Slide. — Excellent car. Great in snow. Blast to drive. Lots of power for a 4 cly. Always enough room to transport people in. Even if your 6ft tall. Not too bad at the gas pump. Just a 14 gallon tank. Did I mention it was a blast to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Car is an absolute blast to drive! Has been meticulously maintained. Very clean!

Cons

Very minor almost unnoticeable scratches on front bumper from highway driving. Very tiny ding on passenger rear quarter panel from a shopping cart rolling into it.

The Best Car I've Ever Owned! — I love everything about this car. It has head turning style, very comfortable and to top it off, you could keep up with or beat a Lamborghini at the track. Not many things keep up with an evo's performance. The car is also very reliable, I've used it for a daily driver for 3 years, and even with my aftermarket parts, I've never had an issue.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

Super easy car to drive, but takes a while to get use to the amount of power / torque this car has.

Cons

Replacement fluids like the 6speed transmission is a dealer item only and can cost over $100, when it comes time for a fluid change.

Garage Queen — Great handling extremely easy on the wallet, as if you don't mash the gas pedal and spool the turbo, it will run like a regular 2.0l 4cylinder and return some pretty amazing gas mileage. The trunk, roof, and hood is aluminum and have to be careful not to allow anyone or thing to rest on top as it will dent and you will not be able to bend it back, as aluminum stretches when hit.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great handling family hauler. Always been reliable and super easy to maintain. The car is a race from original design and everything from transmission to oil changes are a snap to do. VERY Roomy with lots of head room (I'm 6'4") and the reason I bought this car!! Lots of aftermarket support and forums to diagnose any known issues or modification questions you might have.
The car's electronics will save you if you get into a bad turn. Really well develop electronics from its WRC heritage and can't be beat.

Cons

Dealer network are horrible and I think is a reason why Mitsubishi does so poorly in this country. At beginning the police where unaware of the spoiler that came from the factory and cited tickets for it, although it was annoying it, I was able to win in court.

My Garage Queen — Excellent excellent. I would definitely buy again and recommend it to someone looking for a car that will not only get you to 60mph safely, but also stop to 0mph without the help of a tree. Your buddies will thank you because its a true four door sports car.

Pros

Performance - once you corner in an Evo, you can't do it in anything else

Cons

not much really except it's ability to attract cops' unwanted attention and ofcourse the high insurance

Best Handling Awd In Its Class — Got my bone-stock Evo 9 MR in June 2011 and took it immediately for 3 track-days in summer. This car is fast for any novice driver, so it's no wonder insurance rates are high. After learning for 2 years in the Prelude though, the upgrade was desirable and deserved. the car is an absolute hoot

uncomfy, ugly, lots of maintenance.

Evo Ix Rs — Fun factor - probably the best part about this car. Its not far from driving a car that costs 10 times more build quality - its a 15k car with a 15k powertrain...speaks for its self not the best looking car, but i could care less about looks Expensive to maintain, only because I'm picky about the fluids i use and i keep sup with scheduled maintenance. I'm afraid to add up all the receipts with maintenance and gas. Wouldn't recommend the car to anyone who doesn't like to put some work into it or wants to drive it everyday. I'm sure a stock one is a little better though.

2006 Lancer Evo Ix Se Review — A car you can go on a roadtrip with 4 friends with on one weekend, drive all week to and from work, and then go have a blast on a race track with the next weekend. Definitely turns lots of heads driving around town and at car shows (for better and for worse). Maintenance, repairs and gas bills do get a bit expensive, but with the number of SPG (smiles per gallon) I get, I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

Evo9 Rs — Like most performance cars,they are built for speed, agility and have to be strong both engine and running gear. The RS version of the Evo9 is light weight, and with the right mods can be a furious force on the road, track and drag strip. The body looks sleek and smooth.
