Sporty Family Car — Great car for a daily driver. Not so good for a major upgrade to speed because the transmission slips under pressure. Makes a great show car or to simply drive it Like you stole it, that's the way I drive my Lancer.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fully loaded for under $20k

Cons: Weak CVT transmission

Sweet Car Bro — Pretty nice car, nothing to fancy. If you want a car to race, or a car that's good on gas and you won't have to worry if its going to make it back and forth from work then this is the car for you.

Pros: MPG, Comfortable, Sort of Fast, Reliable.

Cons: Not much room to transport stuff... but it is a car and not a truck,

Pretty Reliable — I liked how sporty it looked compared to the competition, but did not like the fuel economy compared to the competition. Overall, great car. If I had to buy this again for my first car, I would without hesitation. Great car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great price, great reliability, good looking car

Cons: Fuel economy could be better for size of car

Fun Little Car With Plenty Of Zip And Pep For Quick Maneuvering In Bad Traffic — I really love this car. the 6 speed CVT transmission give you the best of both worlds between a manual and an automatic transmission. Paddle shifters make changing gears in a pinch super fast. On board 7 inch navigation from Mitzu SUCKS. Takes me to the wrong place all the time and is very much NOT user friendly.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Love this car, handles like a dream. Turns on a dime.

Cons: SCVT is slow to take off with AC on. Built in navigation is awful.

Great Little Car And Safe —

I bought the GTS brand new, one of only 2 on the lot at the time. Mine had the Rockford Fosgate sound system which was awesome. I drove it until May 2012, until, unfortunately it was totaled in an accident. A young man turned left in front of me at an intersection in a 90's model Jeep Cherokee. The entire front end was demolished and pieces of the engine were scattered all over the road, however, my daughter and I, who was in the front seat, walked away with only bruises. The seat belts locked so quickly that our faces never came near the airbags. There is a airbag for the driver knees as well, and I really think it saved me from getting a broken leg. The car was great fun to drive and handled great, however I wish it did have a little more power. The stereo system was awesome and handled great, and the navigation system was good too. The only thing that I needed to have done was a new catalytic converter, which was going in and out at about 130k. I've had Mitsubishi's before and the exhaust was usually the thing I had problems with (frequent replacement of oxygen sensors). I got great gas mileage, and overall I would recommend this car for anyone to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Safety, gas mileage

Cons: Low power

First New Car — Great car just wish it had more power. It would be helpful to get a turbo and all wheel drive like the evo x but buying on a budget its a smooth ride and fun to drive. Maybe eventually I will actually invest in some parts just intake, wheels, and springs.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Brand new has no problems and is a good daily driver on gas

Cons: What mods should be done next
