    The Most Testosterone You Can Buy For Under $30,000. — It can corner, it can accelerate, it has a big ass turbo...what's not to like about the Evo IX? Not only is it beautiful, it is also quite practical. Sure, you don't get the best fuel economy, but compared to all those trucks on the road, it gets good mileage and can beat just about any car on the road. 286 horsepower and 289 lb-ft of torque say just about enough. All this power reaches the road through four 17" forged BBS rims with Yokohama Advan A046's that refuse to slip no matter what. The six-gear transmission is phenomenal. Though its throws are not particularly short, you can feel every nuance and it is also very direct. Cornering is amazing, the car refuses to let go even as you drive along at 80+ miles an hour. Your car doesn't get too much attention either, only from people who know what the car is all about. Much easier to hide from the cops cause of its sedan body.

    Pros: Superb speed, great acceleration. Extreme stability: the downforce can be felt as you cruise through curvy freeways at 100 miles an hour. Xenon lights are great. Practical: you can haul yourself and four hot chicks (the back is roomy), and put stuff in a real trunk. On average I get about 19 MPG, compared to the 20-21 MPG on my Jetta GLI that has 100 horsepower and weighs the same.

    Cons: Trunk could be bigger, I wish I could get 30 miles to the gallon. Needs an exhaust system. Clutch is not as durable as the STI's. Handbrake lever on the passenger side of the center-console (only problematic when someone is sitting in the passenger seat).

    Great Car — great car for the price. Handles well, acceleration is tops, braking is great. The interior is well layed out with everything in reach. The headlight level selector switch is great for night time, you can put the fog lights on for up close, the normal lights down just a touch for mid range and the high beams for long range giving you a lot of overall depth. The recaro seats are very comfortable in regular or leather trim. The only down side to this car is that the clutch is very weak. I burned mine out in 347 miles. This car does not like to be launched like a drag car. If you want a corner carver this is the car for you, but if you want to drag race people go get a different car. Also the interior trim parts are made of plastic in most areas and it is a little cheap looking and feeling. Overall this is a great car for the money when you compare what it can do to most of the other cars in its price range.

    Pros: tight cornering ability, great power, easily upgraded for more power, large aftermarket parts

    Cons: Weak clutch, cheap interior plastic, not a lot of "goodie's" like cruise control, love it or hate it exterior.

    Awsome To Drive Looks Great One Of The Bst Handling Cars For The Money — well what can i say about this car the interior layout is awsome its no luxury car by any means the racing seats hug you an important feature for when your slinging the thing through turns the 6 speed gearbox is perfect for the engine the all wheel drive systems is one of the best in the world steering is crisp and precise the brakes are awsome the exterior is set up pretty well the vortex generator on the top looks strange kinda like sonics head but its very functional funnels the air right to the rear wing and sticks the car to the ground the thing handles at 100+ speeds like most cars handle at 30 whe factory BBS wheels look great overall its an amazing experiance to drive one if you have the opertunity i would recomend it

    Pros: great styling awsome handling performance is out of this world

    Cons: clutch takes some getting used to burns a little rich (blows black soot on the back bumper) super expensive to maintain

    Best Bang For The Buck! — Looking to buy a fast fun car that is still usefull in everyday life, this is it. My wife and i were looking for a 4 door that could fit passengers, gets decent gas mileage and was a fun. We drove the Subaru WRX, Chrysler 300C and a few others, but the EVO was the one that sold us. more room than the WRX in the rear, and the interior was higher in quality. The 300C was fairly fast and roomy, but the handling wasn't as precise and it was going to be more expensive for an american V8.

    Pros: Acceleration, grip, handling, styling are great! fits 5 adults (one in the middle should be slimmer though!)

    Cons: Ride quality is not a luxury car, a bit noisy

    Amazing!!! —

    There is no way i can fully describe my feelings towards this car in words; if i had the same vocabulary as Jeremy Clarkson i might come close but fortunately or maybe unfortunately I don't. This is the first car that i've ever driven that has truly scared me and before this i'd driven exiges and ferrari's at silverstone. Those cars don't even come close to the evo's blistering acceleration once the turbo kicks in, over 3 thousand rpm the boost comes on strong and the world turns into a grey and green coloured blur. This, of course, is fantastic when your ready for it but if your not paying attention then the boost can really catch you out, especially if your in a a low gear and just going around a roundabout. This car is designed for the speed freak, but it's not designed for those people who have a permanent lead foot. You cannot let this car have it's own way; in a way it's a little like a pitbull, if your gentle with it it will sit on your lap and lick your face all day, you can play with it and it'll be amazing fun and the worst you'll get is a little nip, but if you aren't concentrating and you accidently kick it it will bite oyu in the arse.

    Pros: Unbelievable performance, stunning handling, comfortable sports interior

    Cons: Fuel economy, dangerous for the unwary or inexperienced driver, target for police and thieves

    Amazing — This car is amazing from the factory and has many upgrade options for it. Its is a rally car w a 2.0 I4 engine that is turbocharged form the factory. Has massive brakes for superior stopping ability. I have put an intake in and new exhaust from the downpipe back, making a wonderful difference. This car is great in handling and is AWD. oh yeah and its top speed is 175 mph, 286 hp all from the factory.

    Pros: many upgrades for the car, everything

    Cons: nothing is bad about this car
