The Esteban —

This vehicle performs no better than the basic ES trim as the engine and suspension are the same. It does come with cruise control and lightweight OZ rims where as the ES does not. I prefer the standard transmission. 0-60 is somewhere around 9 or 10 seconds and I got tired of counting in the 0-100. It's fun to look at and somewhat fun to drive. I did little things to improve performance such as slapping some Firehawk GTh tires on, K&N air filter swap, fully synthetic oil and some Iridium spark plugs. It's slightly more peppy. Handling is decent, though with a lot of body roll due to the "I'm driving grandma around" suspension. Watch out for understeer in the corners! Don't expect this car to be anything like the Evo as the only thing they share is the frame and most of the interior. But, I have put this car through hellish driving and it seems to just smile and want more. I am impressed with how little maintenance I've had to do outside the normal upkeep. Overall it is a nice daily driver that can take a beating and, if you learn to use this car's weaknesses to your advantage, can be quick car through the corners.

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

Pros: Durable

Cons: On the slow side.

Amazing, I Love It, She's My Baby — Overall very good tuner car. If you want to put some money into the engine, your lancer will be quick, simple money over time is all that is needed. Off the start they are decently quick but with improvements and a bit of money spent they are amazing cars. I love mine sooooo much.

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

Pros: love the look, feel and tuning possibilities

Cons: the base hp isn't great but it's a tuner, so it's allll goood

Economic Fuel Saver — 1800cc and its economical as ever. 5spd Manual - none of this automatic or tiptronic stuff for me! Vehicle has not lost its value in the time I have owned it, and would recommend it to others also. Bring on a the turbo version

Cons: Not enough oomf! lol

Pros: the appearance of the car

Cons: mmm the engine is to big

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable

Cons: Its not an Evo

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Oz Review — Great starter car. Interior kind of cheap. but fit together well. Not much power. best bang for buck power increase would be turbo. handling is decent. not an evo so cant expect evo performance. Gas mileage is decent unless you put a turbo on it lol.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: compact so i can zoom through traffic.

Cons: Not the best starting performance
