2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Hatchback GTS 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


Review

I think it's a great car. It has a good looking design. While it's not totally up to par with the Mazda3, it is still excellent. The fuel mileage is not the best, but then again it's a sports car. I've been told by the passengers that the room in the back seat is surprisingly spacious. Great stereo system. Feels great to drive


Favorite Features

sound quality; large "trunk" space; even though it's a hatchback, the ability to hide stuff in the back so that others can't see what you're transporting; the comfort while driving


Suggested Improvements

Improve gas mileage; telescopic steering wheel; brighten the lights on the stereo display

2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Hatchback Ralliart 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

Car is nice and looks great but it bounces all over the road. Feels like the struts are weak and its really hard to keep the car going straight down the road. I'm taking it to the dealer lets see if they do anything.


Favorite Features

sound system is awesome and seats and great. power and handling is fun.

Review

This is a great alternative to the others in its class. Awesome looks, great handling & it is pretty quiet. The ride is very good on the expressway, but around town on less than average roads, it tends to buck a bit. The hatch offers more space than the sedan. But IMO, the taillights are the biggest let down VS. the sedans. The CVT is for the people who want mileage over performance. You can play with the paddle shifters & NEVER have to worry about over-revving the engine. It still steps out nicely, but you won't win any drag races off the line. My mileage has been for the highway doing 70-80: 29.3 mpg & keeping a solid 55 MPH pace I get usually over 35. Around town I normally get about 25


Favorite Features

The front end. The 2.4 engine. Having the bluetooth integrated into the radio is great. The RF 710W stereo is really nice. My 2008 Lancer GTS was flawless for almost 50K miles. Very reliable cars! SKIP THE NAVI OPTION! Maps are outdated & was terrible to operate! Garmins are WAY better & cheaper!


Suggested Improvements

Telescopic wheel! More interior lights! If you get the sunroof, your rear passengers do not get any light! The trunk light is very small. Back-lit buttons everywhere, not just the drivers window switch! Higher quality interior pieces! More sound proofing. Sliding center counsel for added arm comfort

Review

i had my 2010 lancer gts sportback for a week and i started to hear grinding noise coming from the engine; then the low oil pressure light came on. so i had my car towed in to the dealer. they told me oil pump went out, short engine block needed to be replaced, and an over laping valve. omg!!!!!! a brand new car right off the truck with only 2 miles has all those problem. so the dealer has had my car for 2weeks now. i believe and i know mitsubishis cars are reliable i just got the rare 1 -1000 but overall its a great car and i cant wait to get it back.


Favorite Features

hid lights, sun and sound,and handling

Review

I was looking at a compact car...Found Lancer. Wow its great...ride is good and steering feel is great as well. It has everything I want from leather to heated seats. Honestly... I can say that Mitsub has very good reliability. Please don't hesitate and buy this. It is a true under dog in its class.


Favorite Features

Leather, HID lights, heated seats


Suggested Improvements

nicer dash materials... its not bad but not up to mazda 3 standards. Also a power drivers seat would be nice.
