Cons

Naturally aspirated

Its A Good Vehicle, And For Daily Driving Is Totally Recommended. — Acceleration is strong for a n/a engine. Brakes work well, so does the e-brake :D. Handles well with some understeer, to be expected from FWD. No repairs needed yet. Good looking exterior, and comfortable interior, but by no means luxurious. Gets good fuel mileage, a tank will go about 400 km give or take, depending on how its driven, and only takes 45 bucks to fill on high octane. Its fun to drive, recommended if you are looking for a sporty, economical, relialbe 4 door.

Pros

fun and practical sporty ride that can haul baby around if needed, and still race those annoying civics and cavaliers

Cons

exhaust rattle from factory, non mp3 cd player, Mivec engine loses power/torque when it should boost it-

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. — I bought this car after checking the competition (over and over) All cars have highs and lows but price was right and it came well loaded. This car is versatile with 4 doors and large trunk. It also caters to the compact sports car owner. It has euro inspired tail lights, it handles like a lowered car yet the ride is bearable. The torque out put of the engine is very impressive @ lower speeds (compared to many imports that may have more horsepower but only useable higher RPM's.) This car is really fun to drive. It has 163hp and same for torque. The gearing is low it really throws you back in 1st/2nd and I rarely take it out of 3rd in the city because @ 50Km's it still takes off. It has a small gas tank and the most I get is 480km's per tank. More like 280km's in the city with a moderate lead foot. I put some low profile tires and rims on mine and it makes it a handfull on uneven roads. This car is relatively easy to maintain and has caused little reason for concern. I've driven the 08' generation and the new Lancer is better equipped (GT) and it's a great looking car but the engine lacks power and sounds tinny. It's a Hyundai,Mitsu,Daimler -Chrysler venture.... chassis and all. I haven't driven the new Evo nor the new Ralliart that's to come but the Price jumps. I prefer the old ralliart that is fun to drive over the similarly priced "bluetooth ready,heated seat,stereo with hard drive, blah blah blah, 08' Lancer". (none were built for 07')

Pros

Very fun and nimble.

Cons

Front Wheel Drive

35

Needs One More Gear. — Although this car is front wheel drive there are some options out there to make those front wheels deadly to drive. Not to many companies out there make modifications for it. This car is a middle ground between the evolution and the base lancer. A little higher prices but can be talked down.

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

Price And Comfort Considered I Would Rather Drive This Over A Civic. — Being a Engineer and mechanic I can appreciate a great product. I have found these cars to be extremely comfortable and durable. They also have great visibility. Easy to get in and out of. They also hold up like the top Asian cars.

Sporty Car — Best performance for the 1.6L engine make out 122 hp and amazing stablity & easy handling because of the mitsubishi sport suspension.. And gr8 acceleration coz of the cvt transmission.. Ofcourse no doubt about the whole scary and sporty appearance... all of that features u can having it in very suitable price..

Impeccable — I love my 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart. I have had it for over two years and it had one owner before me. I have no negatives for it other than the fact the FWD is dangerous in the rain/snow. I have had no problems with it other than a battery that needed to be replaced after 50k miles anyway. I rated the car by comparison to other cars of the same class.
