2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Sedan MR Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

This is my first EVO. And im gonna have to say this is the best bang for your buck. It gets looks from everyone. And yes that includes cops! But if you keep your foot out of it. You will be safe as kittens. It takes mods very well. With 15 to 22 gain in hp with bolt ons. They are also somewhat cheap. Great for 4 whenever you have them. But the power will give them whiplash. So save the power for alone time! But you wont be upset with the AWD its amazing. Its grip and go. Launching is the best. The transmission is great. Smooth. The six speed is a must.


Favorite Features

Brembo brakes. Fast spool. around 3300 rpm. The exterior. The start of the Engine when it first spools in first. The BOV. Gauge pack.


Suggested Improvements

Cruise Control! 80 comes around fast when you're just driving down the highway. And the cop comes. and comes around and gets you.

Review

This car has made me very happy. I have never had any problem with it. very fast. even with light mods it still makes the car ran like a charm. But the cops will always be looking for you to make a mistake so take it easy and you'll be fine. anyone who drives this car will never be disappointed with the performance, it's a rocket ship.


Favorite Features

6 speed transmission. bbs wheels. belstein shocks. brembo breaks. momo steering wheel. gauge pack, recardo sport seats


Suggested Improvements

Cruise control! 300 mile trips with no cruise control is difficult.

Review

I bought it new, and now after 80k miles the EVO still puts a smile on my face every time the turbo kicks in. I never had any problems with it. I AVG 27 mpg on the highway doing 70- 75 mph.


Favorite Features

Power and handling


Suggested Improvements

Better Interior and CRUISE CONTROL

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Sedan MR Edition 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I have owned 3 Evo's Now. The IX MR is the Top of the line for the Evolution's, and is even better than the new 2008's according to a few companies. This model in 06 was the last year for this Body style, and for the MR Edition last year for the Manual 6 speed. Every Evo I have owned has never had a problem other than normal Brake changes, Clutch at around 45-60k miles, but don't forget this is a performance machine. Clutch isn't meant to last forever. Car looks great, Drives even better. You will get no breaks in this car from cops although... just keep it safe and you will be okay. Go to the track to unleash the BEAST!


Favorite Features

2006 Stock Gauges, Oil Temp, Boost, Battery, New Black Suede/Leather seats. With Red stitching, Titanium MOMO Steering Wheel. BBS Wheels


Suggested Improvements

Just a bit better on gas would have been great, But can't complain at 26 mpg Highway for a car that will beat most cars 3 times as much as it in a race

Review

Driving enthusiasts this is not a car to be ignored, at first drive I was hooked, it surpassed my performance expectations, just an unforgettable experience. You have not lived until u drive an Evo!! Just go out and drive one - you will not be disappointed.


Favorite Features

Suede Recaro bucket seats, Sport Gauges, Front Fascia, roomy interior which is not not as spartan as people say it is and decent gas mileage, and best of all the turbo and G forces.


Suggested Improvements

Ride quality, and ride height, if you're not gonna take it off-road you should lower it by an inch or two.

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Sedan IX 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)


Review

Best bang for the buck. Awesome car handles in snow better than most trucks I've driven with 4x4. Power delivery is great, especially with basic bolt-ons and a tune. This car will give you whiplash so watch out.


Favorite Features

People that buy this car love the speed and design. Great for picking up grocery's and kids. Now how many sports cars (sedans) can they say that about.


Suggested Improvements

Transmission isn't as great as it should be, lot of owners with gear grinds. Ride comfort could be better. You can feel every bump in the road with this suspension.

Review

High-performance "dream machine." Basic mods for this car are a must. Get a reflash, electronic boost controller, and a turboback exhaust.


Favorite Features

Explosive power and acceleration. Very quick and agile handling.


Suggested Improvements

Please improve the smoothness and feel of the shifter. Also, I've heard the 6 speed transmission is weaker than the 5 speed GSR when modding and adding more power. I'm upset to find out that this may be true. The 6 speed should have been made as strong as the 5 speed if these rumors are true.

Review

This car has it all; big enough for a small family and the performance to make driving anywhere exhilarating!!! If this car doesn't come with the equipment you're looking for then simply look for one and have it installed; there are tons of modifications for this high performance family sedan.


Favorite Features

The feel of not even having to floor the pedal to be slammed to the back of the seat.


Suggested Improvements

More horsepower!

Review

Amazing car! I don't know what I would buy if anything happened to it.


Favorite Features

Power, handling, and styling. It also responds great to performance upgrades. For about $2000 in upgrades it will put out over 400 bhp.


Suggested Improvements

I didn't care for the large fender gap on the front wheels, but lowering springs can easily take care of that.

Review

This car is by far the best car I have ever owned. It's practically the funnest car drive in the streets. I mean just by feeling the fast spool up,the control,handling, and even the looks, all in one is something you can't even complain about. This car gives you what you want. If you want to go fast, believe me, y'all go fast. It takes mods very well. Any little mod will make your car even more faster. Believe me I tuned this car to stage 1 and I ran 11.8 at the track in a quarter mile. Thats only about $1500 dollars into mods and I'm running in the 11s now. Enough said, this car is beauty!


Favorite Features

How easy it take in the mods that you put in it.


Suggested Improvements

I think everybody easy aware about how weak the clutch is, but oh well you can't take $1500 dollar repair spoil what this car can give you! Other than that , thats the only thing i would suggest that they showed improve.
