    Don't Let This Happen To You — My family used to own a Gallant, so I was open-minded when a rear-end collision took out my Cobalt's trunk and let me try another car for a while. While the Schmidt family's insurance policy repaired my Cobalt, I experienced a poorly built Lancer. The seats are horribly uncomfortable. The dash is unattractive and unconventional. I don't like the exterior at all, partly because the body looked so tall and partly because the geometry just looked weird. Since it was a rental, I had no problem pushing it to the limit. It accelerates well, but it gets up to a low top speed. Driving to St. Louis from Kansas was not fun in seats that made me want to see a chiropractor. Don't get one of these.

    Pros: I never have to drive one again

    Cons: ugly hub caps, uglier steelies, even uglier body, long antenna

    One Of The Best Sedans Under $20k! — From day one this car was exciting! From the 162HP/TQ to the EVO Short Shifter to the 6 speaker + 8" SUB 315W Infinity 6+1 in dash sound system, there is absolutly NOTHING I can say negatively about this car. The new body style has nothing on this 04-06 model!

    Pros: 16" Rims, 162HP/TQ, 7 speakers, Foglights, Quick response, Super agile

    Cons: not turbocharged

    Mean Palm Beach Es By Charlieboy24

    I dislike the fact the CVT tansmission limits the ability to add some nice power to the car. I think the car has somewhere around 175-180hp overall. But Im not sure, I have not put it on a dyno. This ... Read More
