Fast And Loud — Aftermarket suspension, air intake and exhaust made this a loud and FUN ride. It is a WONDER that I did not get some very expensive tickets in this car!

Pros: Everything.

Cons: Try taking a lowered loud little sedan camping.  :(

Quick, Nimble And Fun — Car has quick response even as being stock (mine has an exhaust system, cold air intake and a performance module). Also has amazing suspension as the base model: ES (can really powerslide great!) Appearance just looks simple but great.

Pros: The response and suspension

Cons: No spoiler (yet) and could use some higher end performance

4 Cyl, 4 Door, Fwd, Wow — This car is great, It's almost time for the first oil change since I have had it and it hasn't gotten old yet. This car is quick with the 2.4L MIVEC powerplant. 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 there. The handling around backroad twisties is very neutral. There are some curves that i was afraid to take the Z around at any sort of speed, those are the curves where the Lancer shines. This is a great performaing car. The interior is pretty basic, one complaint is the lack of a map light, but it's no big deal. Fuel Economy isn't the greatest, especially is you have a lead foot. The MIVEC kicks in a 3500RPM and will suck gas like no other past that point. I have gotten around 23-24 MPG with mixed driving.

Pros: Quick, Agile, Neutral Handler

Cons: Gas mileage could be better, small gas tank(13.2)

What You'd Expect From An Economy Car, Plus Some 'bonuses'. — I've driven this car since Nov. '05 and never had one problem. Only routine maintenance. Power isn't thrilling, yet sufficient for a 2 litre 4-cyl getting an average of 25-28 MPG city/highway mixed driving. I am actually getting ready to install a chrome air intake kit, but in the mean time, to improve air flow, I cut out a section of the bumper between the inside of the grille and the opening of the air intake duct (stock intake). Basically that allows more direct airflow straight through the grille into the duct, as opposed to the dumb design it comes with. Already I am noticing noticable improvements in throttle response and acceleration, and I am currently in the midst of calculating gas mileage.

Pros: Gas mileage, overall comfort, simplicity of controls, stock stereo speakers got some sick bass, fun car to whip around in turns and circle drifts/donuts, confident handling, reliable.

Cons: Could def. use more power (I'd recomment the 2.4 litre as opposed to the 2.0), throttle response and acceleration with A/C turned on rather sluggish, esp. uphill, brakes kinda spongy, noticable body lean in turns (ride height a little high for a compact car).

04 Ralliart — The car handles very well, power needs to be tuned up to around 200 hp/tq. car also need to be dohc instead of sohc. Its very light at 2850, i bought mine for 16,500 brand new with 20 miles on it. the short throw shifter is amazing. You cannot get a better priced car in its class.

Pros: decent power, amazing suspension, cornering and braking.

Cons: needs to be more well tuned, and 130 mph is just way to low of a speed for this car. it could easily handle 140-145 mph. the car barely even hits 5,500 rpms when the needle is burried

Great Reliable And Fun Car — The build quailty is excellent, its a solid in line four cylinder so its easy to work on - the engineering is smart and takes in consideration that someone will have to fix it at some point. easy to upgrade & modify. Handles pretty good, but has a wide turning radius. The gearbox is very good - not fantastic but its pretty responsive.

Pros: easy to work on, smartly engineered

Cons: short first gear, wide turning radius, its not an evo :D

Not Bad At All For A Basic Everyday Car — 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 I want to do to it. I would do whatever mod that I can do to it on my own even though car shops do guarantee quality work, it's just a personal preference.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: What I like about my/this car is that for being a 1.997cc engine, it's not bad but it is far from the best that it can be.

Cons: Not a manual or a CVT transmission, not all wheel drive and it's not turbo charged.

I had a beautiful extremely impressive fashionable yellow car and at the lights young people gave me a lot of compliments. My car only one yellow car on the road and attracted attention of other drivers which gave me security in the traffic.
