There Quick Little Cars In Tight Areas But In The Wide Open There Not So Good — The car itself isn't bad. It could use some more power. The handling is alright, leaves something to be desired. Its got some little rattles here and there that come and go but nothing major. i've had to replace the cv axles, wheel bearings, and im about to upgrade the coil packs. it doesn't cost a lot to run and the insurance is pretty good. overall this car is pretty fun to drive, and its small so it can get thru traffic pretty easily.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good on gas, has potential

Cons: if your not planning on doing work to the car then dont buy it

Nom Nom <3 — Sexy lines, Good on gas, and once i am done with the styling.. watch out! got some big plans for this vehicle! I am anxiously waiting to start on this project, and to also start on my main car project! Only downside of this white ES... its a auto.. but again in LA traffic, that would be a nice change from my 5-speed!

Pros: Ride Height, and style which is soon coming to a street near you!

Cons: Not drivable right now :(

Buy It — One of my dream car is the Lancer Evolution IX. I can't afford it so I bought its little brother which is the Lancer ES. I put a lot of effort on it and now it looks awesome. The only I don't like about my car is that I bought an automatic. If you're gonna buy the manual, it's a lot more fun to drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Safe to drive

Cons: Nothing really

Great Car, Probably The Best 9k I Have Ever Spent... Has Lasted And Still Going Strong! — Great car, i was truly suprised at how well this was built.. to just give you an example, i once drove over 100 miles with no engine oil! of course, i did not know it was gone, lol but the car still runs strong! Could use a little more power, but thats fixable... i love my car!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Sporty, Compact

Cons: Only thing i can think is the no power issue.

Great Car. — The new 02 Lancer took over the Mirage line up. It's heavier but much more luxurious than the mirage. less road noise, better seats and interior all in all. Come's stock with a 2.0L SOHC which is just enough for the car, really good torque but can use more power which is an easy fix by way of a bolt on turbo kit from Road Race Motorsports or a cheaper custom built turbo kit. Lots of exterior options here in the US and a lot of JDM items for the car but are really pricey to get a hold of.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great daily driver

Cons: nothing

Lancer Wizzard Of The O.z. — This is a fun city care, good in traffic. It has enough get up and go to have some fun, but it is no racer. It has nice rims and a keyless started added to it, both are just plus to its already cool appearence. Last but not least is the iPod jack and sweet sound system.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is fun

Cons: Temptation for speeding.

Good Car — Performance- not bad,little bit off with the acceleration but overall speed is good (even stock). braking and handling is good. Put it to the test about a month ago at the races against some "souped up" civics. Build- Great. Learnin to drift i took a corner too hard an smacked the back end on a curb. Thought i was lookin at about 1,000$ in repairs but it ended just bein a control arm. 140$ car runs like new. Appearance- Interior is great. Nice granite style dash trim. Exterior isnt bad stock,seen a few body kits an they looked phenomenal Cost of Ownership- Alot better than i thought it would be. gets about 30mpg,doesnt need much maintenance just basic stuff. Fun Factor- This car is fun as hell to drive.

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

Pros: Handling,overall speed and control

Cons: 4door 4banger
