2007 Mitsubishi Lancer EX 1.5L, mivec
Reliable with good features
So far no mechanical faults.
Rattle sound coming from in dash mp3 player on rough roads, which goes away on good roadways.
Air filter was replaced with a K&N at 25000 km.
Oil used is Mobil 1 10W30, changed at dealer using their oil filter.
Due for its 5th service soon at 36000 Km.
Yokohama tires at 35000 km still have half cm tread left.
I get average 30MPG. Can be higher, up to 34mpg for highway run at 120Km/hr.
Seats are comfortable and highly adjustable.
Rear view area is difficult to see, since the car is so high.
Overall very reliable with low running cost, since service is 10000Km interval at dealer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
