In the six months I had this car:
Map sensor went on me the first month I had the car. Cost me $400 to fix.
Replaced all four tyres.
Passenger side electric window stopped working.
Drivers side window kept falling down.
Automatic gear box blew up and it cost me $1200 to replace.
I would never ever buy another automatic Lancer mivec ever again.
Being a automatic, it was slow off the mark, and whenever you put yor foot down in it, it had at least a 15sec lag before mivec kicked in and the car actually went anywhere.
As soon as mivec kicked in this car just would not stop, it kept going and going.
Very roomy car.
A very sporty looking car, even though it's a four door.
I think a manual Lancer Mivec would be OK, but I would never buy a auto one as they always breakdown and are very unreliable.
Got about 350km per tank.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
