2000 Mitsubishi Lancer MX 1.6 petrol from Philippines
Great perfomance car with great value for money
The car has great value for money. It has a high performance 1.6 petrol engine with an INVECS 2 automatic transmission. It may be operated in automatic or manual mode.
Has all power features, rear window defogger, fog lamps, leather seats and trims, 4 wheel disc brakes, ABS, and dual SRS airbags. It even has a high quality audio system with in dash CD.
No other car in its class available in the Philippines can match it in terms of value for money. Performance is great and the car is very much under-rated. Definitely better than the Honda Civic (SIR or VTi); Toyota Corolla; Ford Lynx and even the Opel Astra.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You failed to mention that the rear seats have individual headrests, something other cars in its class do not offer. Your review hit the nail right in the head.

Yes, I agree. I too have a Mitsubishi Lancer MX. Man, the drive sure blows me away and the other non-Mitsubishe rides. I've burned other sup up rides and mines only running on stock. The lancers should be nick named HONDA Killers just because it does exactly that, wastes them. Honda Civics are soo 90's. Get with the program and upgrade to a Mitsubishi Lancer.

Totally agree with you guys! I bought a Lancer a year ago, and Honda peeps always give an awful feedback, and I just don't know why, the previous owner was a real ass! I had a chance to ride with him before buying the car, and hell yeah, the car almost flies in the air when passing humps. When I got it, I replaced the suspension, and man, it's been a year and half now, and still I have no problems whatsoever. Maybe I am not an abusive driver, but at least this car surpasses all bumps and lousy roads here in where I live. Lancers are so legendary!

I bought my 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer MX last year because I needed a car in replacement of my other car who is up my pay in repair.
Up to now I still love the car to drive, even my grandma loves to ride in my car, it's comfortable, the leather seat, strong air condition, sound system, the engine, it's all power. I will maybe keep it for another 5 to 10 years.

I bought a Lancer MX 2 months ago for my wife. But after trying it, it became mine 4 days a week. I have to beg my wife for us to swap vehicles. It's fast, smooth, and everything is sporty. CAVITEX at 140, everybody else eat my MX dust.

The saying is "hit the nail on the head" rather.

I agree 100%. The handling is superb and the acceleration is amazing! The ride is comfortable as well. The sound of the engine is great! I wouldn't trade mine even for a brand new Honda! It's simply the best!
