A sheep in wolf's clothing


So far no problems at all, this car is a pleasure to own mechanically.

General Comments:

Performance is really poor for this car. However ride comfort is good. Best advice is wait about a year or so and buy the Evolution Lancer, that's a serious performance car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
