Summary:

Great value, well equipped and a good investment

Faults:

I've done 70k Km with this car and nothing absolutely happened, just normal maintenance like changing brake pads, new tires (as I'm living in hot UAE weather), air filter and coolant. Just follow the owner's guide.

General Comments:

I love this car, and I highly recommend it for young families.

Advantages:

1. Value for money.

2. Looks decent and sporty, so it suits both young people and older conservative buyers.

3. Handsome interior.

4. Comfortable ride, great driving position and great visibility.

5. Easy and stable ride.

6. Cornering is great with little under steering.

7. Roomy interior and compact exterior.

8. Well equipped.

Disadvantages:

1. The 1.3 liter engine is slow while overtaking with the car, but it accelerate rapidly later.

2. Few storage spaces in the interior (cup holders, etc).

3. Boot space is average.

4. A/C is very good and cool enough, although a stronger fan would be appreciated.

Value, well equipped and a good investment.

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.6

Model year2006
Year of manufacture2006
First year of ownership2006
Most recent year of ownership2006
Engine and transmission 1.6 Automatic
Distance when acquired50 kilometres
Most recent distance9000 kilometres
Previous carVolkswagen Golf

Summary:

Very good car

Faults:

It was stolen, and when I reported this incident, I discovered that there's a gang who stole about 120 Mitsubishi Lancer model 2006/2007 in just 6 months, and that gang found something about the car which allow them to steal it easily without the original key (keep in mind that it has an immobilizer to keep it from being stolen).

But I think there's something serious wrong with its immobilizer system.

I recommend any one bought this car to use a good alarm system with the steering wheel lock to keep it safe.

General Comments:

The car was the best deal in price/performance.

The engine is a little too loud.

The shifting is very good.

Summary:

Very comfortable, good handling sedan car

Faults:

-one of the horns gone bad, replaced at the dealer free of charge.

General Comments:

This one of the best cars I owned, although the car looks small from outside, but it's very big from inside, a lot of room in front and in the back, the handling is great, stability is very good, the engine is a bit weak for this car, I would recommend the 1.6 engine, otherwise it's a great looking family car suitable for all purposes, very comfortable at long drives too (over 10 hours) I would certainly recommend this car to anyone, specially in Egypt.

I have A GLX 2005 model and I hate my car so much. Engine is very weak, consuming petrol too much! And the service here in Dubai, UAE is terrible. Even the service adviser don't know how to explain to customers the repair, service done on their car. Even customer service is very poor. They don't use sit covers, fender covers, nor paper floor mats when your car is under repair. So what happen? All of their dirt, sweat and unpleased odor from the technician stick to the interior of your car. And after the repair, guess what will they do? They will release your car very dirty and smelly!!! And their comment, TAKE NOTE!!! That's all they can do!!!

The current Lancer is just a horrible car -- cheap nasty interior and a rough engine that consumes petrol as if it were in a drinking party and I'm not going to mention its handling and stability... I just drove the 1.6 Auto version yesterday and I came away understanding full well why the Lancer is the most crashed car in Egypt... the only good thing about it was the CVT transmission which was smooth; other than that it was bloody awful.

General Comments:

This car is generally good for its price, it's smooth ride with good stability on high speeds and curves, The engine is smooth though with sleek sound, I think it's a perfect car for a small family or someone who needs a smooth ride with low fuel cost, it looks good, and it has a lot of accessory parts that you can put to custom it.
