    My Favorite Car I Ever Owned — Really great performance and handling. Good build quality, paint not very resistant. IMO great exterior styling, good interior styling but cheap materials in the interior. Very low gas mileage and small fuel tank :-(, very maintenance intensive. Best car to drive in the world ;-)

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

    Pros: FUN

    Cons: low gas mileage

    Awesome Car On Weekend, Waste As Daily Drive — Fast, good brakes without cop hassle...Build quality is ok, but need more considering the prize that you pay. Great appearance, with wide wheels 9.5" to 10.5" wide and fat tyres and performance lowered springs or coilovers you and awesome looking car. Great around corners, need more power. Very nice and fun to drive, ok as Daily drive but it would be a waste. Great track car.

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

    Pros: fast around corners

    Cons: nothing

    If Your Gonna Buy One You Need To Invest Another 4-5k On Better Parts To Make This Car A Real Evo. — This car is the worst car ive ever had in my life!! It's overated, drinks more fuel than a Bugatti Veyron, acceleration in 1st is so slow that when I bought it I acctually took it back to the garage thinking there was something wrong with it! For some strange reason Mitsubishi thought it would be a good idea to go back to the eighties and fit it with a 5 speed gearbox. Visibilty in this car is the worst ive ever experienced...the front stantions have airbags and the mirror units are huge, meaning at junctions you cannot see left or right (not joking either). This car isnt worthy of being called an "EVO" its too heavy (300kg heavier than the previous model) and that blunts accelaration. It also has a twin exit exhaust (from a 4-1 branch manifold) which saps power and sound! turbo cars need to breathe easy at the exit of the exhaust otherwise the unburnt turbo gases ignite in the backbox, hence while every EVO X looks like its had its backbox set on fire. This car has been thrown together to compete with BMW and Audi in the European market, but has failed because of lack of attention to detail. Shame because its a real head turner...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Once your in second its a rocket!!!

    Cons: It breaks down all the time due to poor build quality and cheap nasty parts.

    Family Car Thats Sporty And Fun. — fun to drive and corner, after some basic mods you can feel a big difference in performance. this car can corner very well with the stock yokahama tires. very nice seats, dash layout wasnt designed well, really reminds me of a mazda 3 design.. after i put the exhaust on some rattling from the dash started... common in evo x's. doesnt really bother me because i cant hear it anyways when i have my stock 700watt rockford fosgate bumping lol. gas mileage is ok cant really complain about it. car is pretty pricey but i bought mine brand new from mitsu. but you only live once plus i needed a four door for the family...

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

    Pros: fast fun and sporty. EVO X.

    Cons: nothing unless you got a MKIV supra

    Awesome Performer, Warranty Will Quickly Become Non Existent — The Mitsubishi Lancer carries a fair bit of prestige due to its long lineage. The 2008 model improves on the the already stellar Evolution history. With improved looks and an overall more user friendly interior set up. Where this car may scare some potential buyers away is the maintenance cost. With a strict diet of synthetic oil and 93 octane fuel or higher, it may not be for the faint of heart, or wallet for that matter. All in all this is a truly exciting car to drive on a daily basis.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome driving experience, Handles like GOD is driving, Decent in factory trim

    Cons: Expensive maintenance, Weird noises, Subaru community hates you!

    Love The Car, Hate The Payment!!! — Performance-Outstanding, especially when price is factored in Appearance-A little boy-racerish, but good overall Fun Factor-Outstanding Downsides-Needs a 6th gear! Highway speeds are tiring due to it turning high rpms. Ride could be a bit better. And, It could do with a bit nicer interior when it comes to materials.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun Factor:  It's a blast to drive, especially in snow/ice!!!

    Cons: n/a

    ? — I'll put it this way, there is 1 thing i dont like about it. And that would be how easy it is to drop money into. The car handles like nothing you can imagine. The car inspires you to take the next corner faster and harder

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

    Pros: 25Psi

    Cons: too much fun

    I Will Own This Car Forever — The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is built as a rally car and handles amazingly! You feel comfortable taking any turn at almost any speed - like you are driving on rails! Turbo Lag, what's that? The turbo spools very quickly, even bone stock. If you want to stop, the Brembo brakes give you more than enough stopping power with your high performance summer tires (Advan A13c). It has an aggressive exterior appearance and the Recaro seats are about as comforting as you are going to get for the interior. It isn't much too look at inside, but you will be having too much fun driving this car to notice! The build quality is very solid - the cabin noise can get loud, but it is no more than expected from such a high performance vehicle. As with most performance cars, the gas mileage isn't great -- expect 22 mpg highway, 16 city with the manual transmission (GSR) and you will be buying premium gasoline (93 octane). Maintenance costs depend on how much you want to drive this amazing car. You will need to use 100% synthetic motor oil (Mobil 1 is recommended as seen by the Mobil 1 sticker on your engine cover). Fun Factor?? I fall in love with my X every time I drive it, whether I am going up the street or on a long trip!! You can not go wrong by buying this car!!!

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

    Pros: Performance, Upgradability, Appearance

    Cons: limited trunk space, low gas mileage

    The Evo Has Evolved — God-like handling coupled with great acceleration make it a powerful sports car. Although it's slightly slower than the last generation Evos, the upgraded technology is a big plus. The paint quality is slightly lacking, but the overall verdict is no doubt positive.

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

    Pros: Great Performance, Acceleration, Appearance

    Cons: Bad Paint, Multiple Recalls
