    2005 Mitsubishi Ralliart — its quite agile. Good handleing. great acceleration. not the quickest car on the road but it definately could be with a little work. it costs a little bit to maintain with plates and all but it is definately worth it!

    Pros: How amazing it looks passing other cars

    Cons: Cost of plates

    I Love My '05 Lancer Rallyart — Just a super fun car to drive! It handles well, is dependable. It's reasonably priced in terms of maintainance. It has good gas millage if you drive it sensibly. It's a very fun car to drive. I absolutely love it! And there's lots of after market things you can do to spiff it up in appearance and performance. Amazing car! Love it!

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: No turbo or All wheel Drive

    Lancer Es 2005 (basic Model) — Good performance for a basic model but the braking system was enought strong to my opinion, very good car to make long road, relaxing seat,the best colour for this model is dark gray If you want good performance upgrade for a Ralliart

    Pros: very good construction (japanese)

    Cons: not a good car for winter condition in Quebec

    05 Mitusbishi Lancer Ra — Bought car in Aug 08' with 37,000 km. This car handles great and has lots of power and torque. Car seems to be built well - fit and finish is very good. I like the look of the car but it could be improved. Engine - 2.4L MIVEC I4 Power/Torque - 162 hp/162 lb-ft Suspension - Independant, Sport-Tuned Drivetrain - FWD, EVO shifter Tires - Currently P205/50ZR16 Nexen N3000 (Summer) - P195/60R15 Goodyear Nordic IceTrac (Winter)

    Pros: Lots of Power and Torque, Handles great,

    Cons: Looks could use some improvement, Stiff ride for those looking for comfort

    Superb 2nd Hand Sedan. — Lows: Brake pads make noise when driving on uneven pavement. Quite quiet at full throttle. It leans a lot trough fast curves, even when I know its not a sport version. Highs: It gives me real 30 MPGavg!!!. Never fails, and its so roomy for its class. Amazing grip with standard slim tires.

    Pros: Realiability, Gas compsuption, Room.

    Cons: Loose brake pads noises after just 10,000 miles. Lacks of noise at full trhottle.

    I Just Love It !!! — Well, i love my car i have always driven a lancer even my dad he always prefers lancer on any other car of its range. I love its style and my car has agun metallic colour which is very rare to find. The only thing i have a problem is its CVT gears, which is beneficial for fuel consumption but the you don't get the accelaration we used to get in the older models.And now it has again been replaced in the latest model. Which i love it really. Specially the boss sub woofer and those lambo style behind the steering wheel gears. But still i would rate my car 8/10

    Pros: good looking, light weighed, fuel efficient.

    Cons: accelaration

    Economic Grocery Hauler — What can I say when Mitsu says economy they mean it. Out of the Three Mitsubishi Cars Ive owned this one breaks on me more than I would like it to. Ive already had to replace the clutch twice, and I have to replace the Cat converter, fix the A/C , replace break clips, amongst other wear and tear items. On the plus side it is a beautiful white, mitsu never skimps on paint. As always a little low on the HP but makes up for it in torque so launching is a specialty, and the suspension is well set up for a econo car. I can enter and hold corners faster then most people on the road, or maybe thats because Im one crazy SOB!!!

    Pros: Engine has potential given you can find mods and money, suspension is best Ive felt in a while.  You actually feel sorry for the other guy if involved in a Car acciedent.

    Cons: Mechanical is a little lacking, cost a little more then the car to repair

    Great Fun To Drive, A Little Bumpy On Long Trips. — Excellent car, very reliable, good handling, good stereo, not too many around so you get looks. Suspension could be a bit softer, in the winter tends to get rocks in the struts and makes a clunking sound. Good acceleration for a 2.4L and good on gas. Plus is has a 10 year warrenty.

    Pros: Quick, fun to drive, good looking, reliable, good sound system, 10 year warrenty.

    Cons: a little bumpy on long trips, some noises in the winter, needs bigger gas tank.
