2006 Lancer Oz Rally — performance is neck snapping if not careful, fun car to drive! the 5 speed is especially fun to drive as its my first stick shift i ve owned. I m acctually going to modify the air filter and put a cold air filter on along with a custom catback to help the engine get better air flow and better hp like around 50 gain. everything on the car is well maintained and runs like a dream. plus the cost is only 10 grand for a nice car.

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

Pros

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

Cons

Weak fuel-economy...

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

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.

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....

Sweety By Justmemommy

I like the power this little car has, not at all bad for a 2002 with 200,000 plus miles on her. The little body style is nice and sporty to me. I am not too fond of the fact I keep having to replace t... Read More

Great Car... If You Can Afford The Maintenance By lcharrismd

Gas mileage, great drivability, don't like the dealer. If you have someone that will fix the car... when you need diagnosis and repair... that is honest... this is a good car to have. Just my opinion.... Read More

Good Reliable But With Some Quirks. By sergekhoury

This is a good small car that is very efficient on gas. The car can go easy on highways and has no problem keeping up. One downside is that it didn't come with Cruise Control which makes it tough to d... Read More

Not Bad At All For A Basic Everyday Car By Mzsinko84

Like I said in my pros and cons, it's not AWD, Turbo charged or a manual/CVT transmission but for a little more than beyond basic car it's not bad at all. I have a ton of ideas and modifications that ... Read More

Lancer Ralliart 2.4l Review By Kevin

This car is quick with the 2.4L MIVEC power plant. The FWD isn't the greatest, there ia a little torque steer on hard take offs, but not enough for very many people to notice. A LSD would go nicely up... Read More

Good Car As A Daily Driver, Works Great With Future Mods. By Shaun

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 corn... Read More

Sporty Family Car By davidfran69

Great car for a daily driver. Not so good for a major upgrade to speed because the transmission slips under pressure. Makes a great show car or to simply drive it Like you stole it, that's the way I d... Read More

Sweet Car Bro By jnc9190
