2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR Edition 4dr Sport Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I love this car. Thanks to Mitsubishi for building such a fun, focused affordable car! I replaced the Yoko. tires with an all season radials. The road noise and all weater traction advantage was worth the slight decrease in steering feel. The car seems to have gotten faster and just a bit louder after a few thousand miles. I runs very hard. I have changed the oil, aligned the wheels, replaced the tires (due to road noise), and changed the oil. It has never been back to the dealer for anything! Overall this car is an intoxicating blend of performance and reliablity at a reasonable price.
Powertrain and suspension
Upgrade the interior plastics. Make the seat recline adjust knob easier to reach. Make the guages easier to read quickly. Add seat tilt adjustment. Better quality paint on the BBS MR wheels, mine are chipped and I don't run off road.
