Unable to accommodate tall people and a family - I don't think it's the fault of the vehicle. Perhaps YOU made the wrong choice! Lancers are very reliable cars.
2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII 2.0 turbo from North America
The best car under $60,000
Xenon headlight bulb burned out at 22,000 miles, fixed under warranty.
Brake rotors warped at 32000 miles, have had them shaved flat 3 times now, problem keeps recurring.
Windshield washer stopped working at 26000 miles, fixed under warranty.
Tires only last 14,000 miles, and cost $250 each, but are worth it!
The best handling car under $70,000!
Not a harsh ride, much better than the Toyota Supra Turbo I had before.
Routinely blows away Mustangs.
Has a back seat and a trunk.
An amazing bargain for $32,000.
Get the sunroof!
Only needs cruise control (for those speed traps) to be perfect.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Actually the C6 Corvette is well known as the best performance car under 50k, and the Z06 variant as the best under 70k including handling. Not to mention that the Lancer Evolution is a... Mitsubishi and a ratty looking one at that. No class or comfort whatsoever.

Yeah, the Corvette just screams class and comfort what with its Mattel plastic interior and its "let's feel every pebble on the road" ride.
The Corvette is a bargain, but let's keep things in perspective.
2003 Mitsubishi Lancer Rally OZ 2.0 liter from North America
Quick, well-handling, boring japanese rally car
The oxygen sensors made the "check engine light" come on after about 50 miles, after another 1000 miles or so the light mysteriously disappeared. The dealership said he had to order the oxygen sensor that was faulty so when the problem went away I never bothered to get it changed.
Then at 42150 miles the "check engine light" just came on again, I'm going to take it in today to find out what is wrong.
This car just has no "mojo".
The car handles like you would expect a rally car to.
It is quick and nimble.
You sit very high in this car, giving excellent view.
The car is boring, sterile and has no mojo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Could you clarify your use of the word, 'mojo'. What do you mean by that?

The initial posting was for a lancer rally, which has around 160bhp. The Lancer which is not rally has a 2.0 with 120hp or so, but the rally lancer has a 2.4L engine.

NO.. the 2002 Lancer OZ-Rally edition came with the same power plant as the base Lancer. The "Rally-Art" (Mitsubishi's in-house performance brand/shop), edition did not come out in the US until nearly three years later.
Also.. if you wanted mojo.. get a stickshift.. automatics are for buses and girls.

The OZ rally is not a rally car. It's a Lancer with the OZ rally nameplate on it.

If you read up on the Lancer Oz, you would find it's called Oz for the wheel package on it, and Ralli for the suspension on it. The power is the same as any other Lancer 2.4l...
