2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Invite 1.6 petrol from Palestinian territories
Rattles from the dashboard..
Well for this car when I bought it, I thought that the shift from the Seat Cordoba to the Lancer will be excellent, but that was not the case...
When I bought this car, I was maybe in like state of idiot.. all I thought was that the car is almost new since cars are so expensive here in Palestine..
Anyway the car is slow.. and it needs a lot of revving.
The dashboard is just so simple. I liked the Seat much much better..
The design is old for a car of 2007 model..
The seats are just awful... considering the size of the vehicle, I thought it would be very comfortable, but oh my god...
The driver seat doesn't have much maneuverability as many other manufacturers, even Kia..
The steering wheel doesn't have telescopic function, and since I'm tall I can`t find a comfortable position on long journeys...
The materials used are poor..
The engine is very noisy...
I thought Mitsubishi were great cars... well compare them to Hyundai's and KIA maybe, but don't dare compare them to Volkswagen.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

100% agree. Dashboard rattles I hear not, yet overall I find this a very disappointing car.
I had a 2010 Kia Forte during a week as a repair shop service, as the Lancer needed minor damage repair. 1.6l 4 cylinder as well, with tiptronic. The shifting is way smoother than the Lancer's, and I felt more torque on the Forte engine.
The Forte is equipped 10 times better.
I find the suspension of the Lancer way too stiff, and the engine too noisy. That would be OK if the performance made up for it, yet it does NOT.
Gonna take my loss on this car, and trade it in for either a Kia Forte, or a Hyundai i30.

Fully agree. What I really hate in this car is the suspension. I want my Chrysler 300M back! V6, awesome engine, Tiptronic like the Lancer, and the suspension is SO much better. I want to get rid of this Lancer, just because of the awfully stiff ride; every threshold near a school or ditch in the road is an ordeal. Maybe it has been designed by an orthopedic in order to keep the patients coming? I wonder if all kinds of parts like wheel bearings aren't suffering with us, in the car! This Lancer is the worst car I ever had, and I had MANY over 38 years.
