1992 Mitsubishi Lancer GTi 1.8


The car is worth buying


Noise occurs when reaching 80KPH up.

Power windows are always mis aligned.

Recaro seats head rest easily damaged.

General Comments:

This car is the choice for hi-speed conscious people.

However, the aero dynamic noise is very annoying to the ears, I can't hear my radio.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You should buy an amplifier.

My 94 Lancer EL had some shuddering vibration on the steering wheel at around 90 to 105 but disappears at a little more than 120kph. Have your bushings checked.

The whooshing noise can be fixed by replacing the tires with quiet ones; that's up to you. Check the door seals too.

A quick trip to Banawe QC can solve practically everything. Good luck!

I love the GTi. I love its looks, the way it handles, and the way it feels. It's a complete car for me. It may not be perfect, and I agree with the power windows, but all in all, it's my dream car.

If I buy a new car, I'd be sure to buy another lancer


Mostly AC since 1992.

Some engine fans after 100,000 miles.

Radiator after over 120,000 miles.

General Comments:

For a family sedan, this relatively old car in stock configuration can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 8 seconds!! And of course, brakes quickly too. That is if you floor the throttle, but I don't recommend doing that all the time.

Handling is very crisp on tarmac and the car is well behaved in drifts and power-slides on gravel.

I'm not very particular on interior, but as far as the looks go, the model still looks good and modern even by 2005 standards.

I, too, agree with this comment about Mitsu Lancer. Me too; I bought a 1992 Mitsu Lancer GLX, and I was surprised. I admire the durability of this car. Xer.
