1995 Mitsubishi Lancer GLI Evo 2 Spring 1.6 gasoline injection from Netherlands
Not much apart from what dealers deliberately destroyed or did wrong.
Water pump, hydraulic steering housing.
The plastic wheel caps are no good.
A very good reliable car that needs every second of your attention whilst driving; not a shopping car. When new, she was a real tyre burner and was throttled down in MMS by law :( The slightest gas pedal movement would outrun any Porsche, BMW or whatever.
Deserves decent tyres i.e. Bridgestone or Michelin.
From 95 onwards these Lancers can't be maintained in your own garage; it requires special skills and tools. Luckily she only requires checking fluid levels.
No consumption after 200.000 km.
The gearbox has unpleasant shifting on this model.
Biggest problem is finding a decent dealer and spares, but you hardly need them
I've seen a few rare accidents with similar Lancers. She can't take much or any impact. No airbags on this one.
One Lancer low speed against a police bike. Lancer was a total loss.
One Lancer, very low speed bump from the rear by a Mercedes 190 in town. A total loss. No good for crash tests.
Beware, Mitsubishi does not have very customer/service minded aftersales. After you buy it, you are on your own almost.
For 1995 it was voted the most ugly car on the road in Netherlands. 20 years later it's the best surviving car in Netherlands and very awesome still. Most drivers are cautious people, having preowned a Mazda 323 80s model before. Most kept it in an indoor garage for the first few years because she was so handsome. A spacious family car.
After 1996, Lancers are not interesting anymore... No doubt this is the best Lancer production version ever. This model sold in Netherlands from late 1994 to 1996.
The station wagon version sold a few years longer. Abroad she was available already from 1992?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
