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

Review

Purchased my Certified Pre-Owned Lancer GTS Sportback Ralliart iin 2013 with 28,000 miles. So far, great car to drive. 4WD is amazing. Drove this winter in Indianapolis with 8+ inches of snow and past countless SUV's and trucks. Turbo is great so far and no issues. A few problems: The car has a sport pack option which includes an aluminum gas tank cover. If you live in a colder region, avoid this option. The gas tank cover does freeze under 25F. The Rockford navigation system is a bit awkward and takes some time to adjust. Voice command inside the car is hopeless. Also the rear window in the sport back has poor visibility.

Favorite Features

The performance in this car is excellent. I will say the maintenance will be more with turbocharged engines, but are fun to drive. 4WD option is brilliant, comes with a tarmac, gravel and snow settings. The Recaro bucket seats are not particularly comfortable, but do keep you rigid through aggressive corners. Bi-xenon headlamps are a plus, but are available in many different cars. The sport exhaust system is fun, but can be tiring on longer journeys.

Suggested Improvements

Voice command system is rubbish as with most cars. The rear window is difficult to see out of. The battery is completely inaccessible. You must disconnect a portion of the air intake to reach the battery. Not fun in the winter. The aluminum gas tank cover freezes in the winter and the Navigation system could use some fine tuning. However, still a great car. I would recommend to a friend. Probably will go for the sedan next time and avoid the back window.
