After 5 years as a daily driver
By Tim on
Vehicle
2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII 4dr Sport Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I am the same "Tim" who wrote a review on 3/15/2006, and I just sold the car. It was a great car to have for 5 years, and it certainly is fast and fun, but the quality and reliability of the car was definitely lacking. I had the AWD pump die 3 times, random sensors blew, and the car developed rattles all the time that needed to be fixed. Not to mention, the car was kept clean and waxed every few months, but the paint developed rust in 5 areas after 4 years. My wife's SUV is 8 years old, gets waxed probably once a year, and has no rust. Also, very expensive to maintain so know that going in or you're going to have significant sticker shock when you bring it in for service.
Favorite Features
Gobs of Power, Great Handling, AWD, large trunk, 4 doors, great seats, child seat mounts, Infinity Stereo, great looking car.
Suggested Improvements
Better build quality! Cruise control and heated seats would be a bonus.
