Summary:

The best car money can buy!

Faults:

Nothing, nothing and nothing, never paid a dime for parts, excluding filters and belts.

Minor oil leakage might come from the valve cap, opened every 50,000 kms to adjust the valve clearance. You might need to have the valve cap gasket changed sometime to fix that!

My previous car was the exact same model with 400,000 kms on it. Bought it in 2004 with 230,000 kms, and had it until the end of 2010, when I crashed it, also fault free!

General Comments:

Handles really good for a four door family car. Changing the springs with progressive H&R's, combined with the original Kayabas, makes it handle like a train. Really fast for a 1.3 liter car; overtakes 1.6 BMWs as if they are stopped. The air induction sounds great!

No rust at all, ever! Very cheap panel and bodywork parts (not original, but really good), and can find easily after market parts for it, because it shares the same body with EVO 1, 2 and 3.

Never changed any part of the exhaust in either of both cars!

Take my word, I had a Lancer like this before, and bought one again.

I must also say that I owned many other makes of cars before; Suzuki, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Seat, Volvo, Opel, Volkswagen, but none of them compare to the quality and reliability of Mitsubishi.

I still have the original seats, dressed in their original lining, from both cars, in excellent condition!

Summary:

A sporty sedan with no power

Faults:

No problems with this car.

General Comments:

After 3 years driving this car, I must admit that it goes like new. If you are thinking of buying a roomy reliable saloon car, then I suggest the Lancer Mitsubishi.

Although it might be frustrating on long travel distances do to its lack of power and sort transmission, it has a frame that even class above cars would envy. The transmission and weight balance on this car is overwhelming for the performance it has, when approaching a corner your confidence raises and the grip from the car is incredible. Brakes do wear off quite fast and the suspension is way too stiff for rough roads.

The cabin is very big and fits with ease large people. Trunk space is just perfect, it is just great.

Must warn that I bought it with no ABS, which drove me to a big crash. 3 people were in the car and we got out of it with not even a scratch.

Night lights take a lot of power from the engine, and with the radio on, it is an annoying drive.

Summary:

Absolute Quality and Reliability

Faults:

Absolutely Nothing.

General Comments:

The car is very very reliable. The only extra cost was a new battery after 5 years. Although is 75HP is quite fast and nervous. The net consumption is 9,5 Lt /100Km, not so big I think for a car passed his life mainly in the streets of a big city.

Handling is good with the factory tires (175/70/13) but if you change it to a lower profile (185/60/14) the car becomes more accurate.
