Summary:

Very comfortable and very reliable by all means

Faults:

When I bought the Lancer, the cigarette lighter don't work. Anything else, nothing gone wrong.

General Comments:

For it's price, and years it have, I'd say this is one of the best japan cars ever built. It's reliability, diesel engine means strength. Very comfortable car and easy to drive. Altough it is not power steering, the steering is very easy to turn. Handles very well, but in sharp corners in the rain you can feel the rear tires slipping, but that's to be expected from any car. Good for car audio installations - ICE. The rear boot is roomy and huge, altough it is not hatchback, the bass from the sub woofer can be heard very strong. Also have very comfortable front seats & the rear seat is very, very comfortable & you can sleep on it very comfortably.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

I am glad that I bought Mitsubishi and I like Japan cars very much.

This car is a little bit slow because it's a diesel, but for it's category it's very good. Very comfortable to drive and the pedals are very soft to press.

Summary:

Everything you wish a friend could be

Faults:

Electric Cigarette Lighter Stopped working after 3 years. I'm a heavy smoker and used it regularly.

General Comments:

For it's price, class and size, I'd say this is one of the best cars ever built. It's reliability is unquestioned and has a surprisingly comfortable ride. Handles well, except going up a hill and round sharp corners in the rain when you can feel the rear tires slipping, but that's to be expected from any car. Lacks rear leg room and comfortable arm rests.
