Awsome Budget Car — Started as an A to B car with high millage, finished as lapping project (Racing) This car really is well balanced and handle like a snail. Great visibility, well equiped, great braking, good look, lot of possibilities for parts, fairly cheap repair cost. The alternator is a bit small for the full equiped version when you add a good sound system. Good in snow for a FWD sedan

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

Pros: Handling - Fiability - Cheap - Good visibility - Good brakes - Good looking - Well equiped - Lot of space to acces parts to repair it

Cons: Lack of power

Great Car... If You Can Afford The Maintenance — 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. That is all I got.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Best car I have owned... I love it

Cons: I don't like the dealer (Mitz) ... not a customer oriented dealer... very expensive

Good Reliable But With Some Quirks. — 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 drive long distances. Another downside is the temperature control knob. It's very hard to turn and from what I understand it's a problem with this particular model but Mitsubishi does not have a recall on them which is surprising.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very good on gas. Reliable and has some kick.

Cons: No cruise control. Temperature control knob is tough.

Great First Car — this is my first car to own. i have the 4 speed automatic. i really wish it had one more gear and an overdrive. i think the gas mileage would be way better! over all it is pretty good. decent off the line, but it really hits the power band at about 2800 rpm. the handling is way better than my moms highlander or my brothers malibu. i find the noise level could be brought down some, but it may be something that i did to it when i installed my amp(had to take plastic over driver side wheel off.) the cargo space was quite good i thought until i put my sub back in. the stock stereo is fine, but i wanted more power. the availability of aftermarket parts is also good. there are a lot of small mod things like cold air intakes available. i really have liked my car and someday might turn it in to a racer style!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: stylish, decent acceleration, good handling

Cons: more power, another gear would be nice, no cruise control

Stylish Good First Car — its decent car for newer drivers. not the fastest but it its not slow either. this car takes off pretty quick! although at around 120 kmh it has a very hard time speeding up. brakes and corners very well considering its not all wheel drive. overall its a pretty average car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling is amazing! sound system is amazing. its a cheap reliable car

Cons: parts are not that cheap.

I Love My Car — The car is pretty reliable and I have had no major issues with my car and it is pretty reasonable to fix. Parts aren't to expensive. I'm a Honda chick but I have to say I fell in love with my Lancer! :)

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

Pros: I love the handling of my car! It's pretty fast! The car gets great gas mileage and to top it off, it's sexy!!

Cons: Battery Drainage issue. :(
