Review of the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer

  • No Mirage here. The Lancer is a well-rounded economy sedan that deserves attention from consumers.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Large interior, classy exterior styling, many standard features.

  • Cons

    O-Z model lacks performance to back up looks, side airbags and antilock brakes available only on LS trim, no available engine upgrade.

  • What's New for 2002

    The '02 Lancer is Mitsubishi's replacement for its Mirage economy car, though the Mirage continues this year in coupe format only. The chief reason for the new name (for the U.S., as the car has always been called the Lancer elsewhere) is Mitsubishi's desire to emphasize that the Lancer is more upscale, larger and better-engineered than the old Mirage.

Love this car

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I Got into a major accident when this car had less than 3,000 miles on it. I was rear ended on the thru-way going 65 mile per hour because the man behind me was watching the accident and not the cars in front of him. My car had over $9,000 worth of damage to it, and I want you to know, every safty feature including the crumple zone worked perfectly. We had tons of presents in the trunk and not one thing broke, The whole trunk shifted to the ground, leaving all of the trunks contents and us perfectly safe. No one was injured and I was happy I had chose this car!!!

Lancer can be a formidable opponent of Honda and Toyota. The quiet engine, the functional power controls inside the cabin, and the cabin space itself makes the car cozy and fun to drive. I should say that making those sharp corner turns amazed me how this car kept itself on the ground and stable. The driver-adaptive shift technology on the other hand seems to not matter at all. I didn't feel the difference between this technology and a regular automatic transmission equipped car. But for the price and the features of this car, it's worth driving.

The Lancer is a comfortable car to drive. It is peppy and can out manuver alot of cars that I have driven in the past. I have had no problems starting it in the cold weather. The only problem I have had is in the snow. The car tends to slid alittle too much.




Engine knock

Vehicle: 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I for the most part enjoy the car, but after 6000 miles I have a engine knock when cold the dealer says its the injectors that are making the noise...yeah right this is the same dealership that scratched the heck out of the right front alloy wheel then saying they didn't do it cause they have no curbs..hum I will see just how good Mitsubishi Corp will handle the complaint. Will wait and see if they stand behind the customer or thier franchise owners.
