First Time Car Buyer Seeks Advice on 06 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Asked by Jun 03, 2016 at 02:04 PM about the 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm considering purchasing a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer with 130k miles on it.
The seller says it runs perfectly well with no leaks or issues.  No accidents,
clean carfax report.

What should I pay attention to when I test drive it?  
What are the first things I would look into replacing and/or repairing, and
the pricing of such?  
Should I just take it in for a general check up?

What do repairs on a mutsubishi generally cost?

I would pass on the Mitsu- buying a used car is a gamble, especially if it is a brand that is nearly extinct-

Did you end up buying it Sonja? I'm thinking of getting one.

Oh those are baby miles... Did you buy the car? My 2006 Lancer ES has 363000, miles and still drives great ! I love Mitsubishi's !!
