Pros

fun to drive

Cons

the screws on the speakers are loose.

25

If You Can't Afford Or Get And Evo...get This! — Performance if pretty good. . .could be better. Build quality isnt bad. Appearance is a bit boring. Cost of ownership is good if you dont have a lead foot like me. And yes. . .its fun to drive it on the highways going more than the speed limit. . .which I dont recommend you doing it. *cough*

Pros

best value for money

Cons

stability, expected short life time.

25

Good Car But Not Exciting — Nice economic car but let down by the really annoying CVT gearbox which is economic but really annoying when trying to accelerate, also not that good when it comes to stability, the build quality appears to be good but when living with it you know it won't last that long.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

My Car — very nice drive and quality. It has been a good car for me and my family even though it does not have all the horse power in the world. Overall a good solid car with a good car design. I am very content with my car and can recoomend it.

Its Decent — its a decent car that gets you from a to b with great gas mileage. however, the noise reduction could be much better, and the acceleration isnt outstanding

Pros

Sporty, fun to drive, good transmission and good handling. Great buy for the money.

Cons

Harshish ride with stiff suspension and small tires.

35

Fun To Drive And Affordable — The car is simple, not terribly much to look at inside and sportyish styling out, however my 19" wheels, low profile tires, and bright red finish also added to the sportyness. The car is great for the money, it handles exceptionally well with the OZ package and the 19' Kazera wheels make it a beast on on-ramps. The ride is stiff and somewhat harsh with the low profile Yokohamas but that makes the car handle much better. The manual transmission is slick and the steering is responsive. The Interior is rather conservative, however i was impressed to see a padded dashboard top. The engine is adequate though it seems to run out of steam at the higher RPM. Overall a great find and great fun.

Pros

Smooth clutch. Mitsubishi reliability. Amazing 10 year (or 100,000 km) power train warranty.

Cons

Weak fuel-economy...

25

The Clutch Is Really Smooth. — The Lancer 2006 ES is very reliable. With 120hp @3600 rpm, it's the perfect car for a college student like me, whose use is go to and from school, long trips, around town, and so on. You can't expect it to be like a high performance car. but I'm really satisfied because of it's good handling, effective ABS on snow/ice, smoothness on the road, and the clutch!!! You must love the clutch on this one. The downside is, I could appreciate it more if the fuel economy was better... the maximum I could squeeze ou of my mileage was 6.54L per 100km.... and that was mostly night driving (and with a standard transmission) Overall, I am pretty satisfied with what I have. =)

Pros

everything! fits me like a glove

Cons

actually there is one....head lights are of poor quality...they have a dark tint over the glass which cause light to be very dim
recomendation: go buy new bulbs....thats what i did...it will set you back 100+ but who cares its for a lancer!

45

My One And Only Love Of My Life! — this car is the apple of my eye! i swear! in pearl white and black tinted windows this car looks soo mean! yes the newer lancers are out and damn there sey to but i wouldnt trade this car in for the world!....power everything including AC,and is a stick shift! i bought it brand new and still gives me that feeling of brand new every day! if you like it go check out south side mitsubishi and check them out...not only r the rates decent but they have 0% financing for as long as you like...not to mention the best backed cars in canada!

Pros

It's lightweight and after you turbo, the power to weight ratio is awesome.  Handles nice after a few basic mods, easy to drive, responsive and fun to drive. Gear box is awesome, nice and solid feel, and pretty short throws, lightweight rims, suepr easy to work on and takes mods fairly well.

Cons

back seats are small, no heated seats, rear drum brakes (braking sucks once you add more power), annoying ABS in the snow, it's too sensative.

65

Slow Untill You Turbo! — For the price, at the time it was well equiped and cheap. Good reliable car with no problems and has power everything. Downside is not even a month after buying it, the 2008 Lancer models were available and those are a much better deal. Way more options and standard features, overall look is nicer and more agressive, bigger, better fuel economy, bigger engine...overall the 2008's are better. Don't buy a pre 2008 lancer....
