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-

95

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

Mileage, looks.

Cons

Acceleration

55

2006 Lancer Es — I've really liked this car. I feel that it handles very well and drives very smoothly. The gas mileage has been absolutely amazing. My only complaint is that the acceleration is a little weak. When the AC is on and I'm trying to pass someone on the highway, I wish the car had a little more oomph.... but I guess that's how 4 cyls. work, generally.

Looks Good, Performance Is Average. Great First Car! — Handles relatively good, performance is just about right. Interior is rather spacious. Looks better than most other cars in the same price range.

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.

45

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. =)
