Summary:

Excellent car to drive NFS

Faults:

This car had a right hand side noise on bumpy roads, and the shocks were replaced.

General Comments:

With comparing it to other cars, the acceleration is far superior. The sensation is far beyond the looks of the vehicle while passing other vehicles.

Trunk is very roomy, which is good for my family of 5.

It's comfortable and roomy compared to other cars.

The driving position is more like playing a video game; just do not feel any fear when driving it.

Well I'll have more updates with more experience with this.

Summary:

25 Years, and still performing brilliantly everyday

Faults:

1.Leaking radiator at 200000km.

2.Broken clutch cable at 200000km.

3.Hand brake adjustment system is worn out and should be replaced. Rear braking doesn't seem to operate normally.

General Comments:

This car is now exactly 25 years old, (older than me actually) and still manage to keep up with new cars like the Evolution etc. Never owned a car like this before because it's so COOL! I have only done body repair and painting ONCE, and it still draws attention of people! And I should give a comment on it's acceleration, SUPER! Does 13.8km per liter of fuel with air conditioning on. Spare parts STILL available! I also wish I had bought 2 at the time! All 1979 Lancer users, Happy 25th Anniversary!
