2006 Mitsubishi Lancer GLX 1.6
Perfect car and best car if you measure performance / investment
Loud engine sound
Poor sound proofing at 4K RPM and/or 130km/h and above
Floating after 160km/h.
Good handling at the speed below 160km/h, aftermarket strut bar, shock and springs are needed to improve the handling of the car.
Good engine performance, easily overtake cars from similar CC. Be the champion if drag race with any car from same CC. (stock condition)
Comfortable and quite for such performance, other models car tends to be noisier at that speed and performance.
Nice interior, modern and yet simple, looks very elegant yet sporty.
Good looking exterior and easy to be added on the kit to make it even more fierce.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How could you think it was unusual to feel the car float at that speed and play that as a negative..
The car isn't made to do 160km/hr everyday.

Do you know why your car jerks? I also own a Lancer 2005, but has no problems. It is also an auto, and has done up to 146000.

Yes I agree with you since it's happened to me.
I have a Lancer EX 2008 model with 84000 km, and now the bearing has damaged. For that, the authorised agent in Abu Dhabi is asking me to pay around AED, 20000.
I will never recommend anyone to buy a Mitsubishi car in my life.

I have the solution for you.
Don't spend any money! I had the same, and was told many stories that I have to change the gear box.
Check the socket of the sensor. It is next to the left front wheel. You will see that they are only in bad condition. Clean, or better, change them, which will cost you about 20USD.
Mitsubishi gear box in the years 2006 - 2008 are very good, and even in competition with Toyota. Mine has 150'000 Km already, and I kick the baby to 5000 RPM regularly. Before 4000 RPM, there's nothing to give anyways.

I drove a lot of cars. The Lancer 2006 is very great, but not designed for speed. I tested 160 Kph with a Peugeot 206, perfect, and an Avante with 180 Kph, wonderful.
But the Lancer could not make 130 kph with the same feeling of safety.
Still, I like my Lancer, and I'm still driving it.
