Review of the 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer

  • A midpack player until now, the introduction of the more powerful and fun-to-drive Sportback and Ralliart models gives the Lancer the boost it needs to compete with the class leaders.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multiple body styles and trim levels, clean cabin design, solid power from Ralliart and Sportback models, wagon's generous cargo capacity.

  • Cons

    Base engine lacks punch, no manual gearbox in Ralliart models, ABS and side airbags not available on all models, small trunk in sedans.

  • What's New for 2004

    The Lancer Sportback wagon joins the lineup, along with performance-oriented Ralliart versions of both the sedan and wagon. All Sportback wagons as well as the Ralliart sedans get a new 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine rated at 160 horsepower (162 hp in Ralliart form). The entire Lancer line gets a redesigned front fascia with Mitsubishi's corporate grille design, plus new integrated bumpers, halogen headlamps and a relocated rear license plate.

My lancer

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I had my Lancer for about two years. I thought I would get good gas mileage, but I only got about 24 mpg on the highway. Furthermore, I was in a rear end collision and over $10,000 in damage was done just in body damage, the inside frame of the car did not hold up. This is not a safe car...




Great car!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

This car is actually used as an all- rounder and it must be said that it's an Australian version of the CH Lancer LS, it's our family car come weekend & the commuter during the week. Each day of the working week the car travels at least 130 km or around 82 miles each way to work and back, over 800 miles a week! The car is flawless in its reliability, performance and features. It's great to look at & has plenty of personality like its predecessor (a CE Lancer which we traded after a problem free 5 years and 200,000 miles / 320,000 km). We travel fairly large distances every year and appreciate the equipment, reliability & refinement that is found in these vehicles!




One great little car!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

I purchased this car as an anniversary gift for my wife. She's an immigrant who has never owned a car before. So, I wanted her first car to be a special one. Safety, ease of handling and parking, roominess, having good power but not too overwhelming, overall value, powered features like keyless entry, remote mirrors and such were very important features. The Lancer LS beat the Civics, Corollas, Mazdas, Ions, Neons and Ford competitors hands down in cost, value for the buck and in standard equipment! The competitors charge $1,000's more in options for what the Lancer LS offers as standard. My wife loves her car and I drive it often too. A very comfortable car, even for my 7' 3" tall frame.




Excellent

I have had the best experience with my Lancer! It is comfortable and stylish. I know when I head out of the garage everyone day, that I will be able to get where I am going, in my car!




Great small car!

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

We have had our MITSU for a little over a month and we have used it around town and on trips of over 50 miles. It is a wonderful small car. Our other car is a Hyundai and the Mitsu is a definite level above in fit, finish, and performance. We are getting 30 MPG plus, which is why we bought the car in the first place. It is not an Avalon, or a Passat, but it only cost half as much. For the price it is a wonderful small car.




Ergonomically perfect

Vehicle: 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer LS 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

My 1983 Lancer LS has all the most important features I was looking for. Very pretty interior with all controls at my fingertips; 15" alloy wheels; cruise control; power mirrors; remote entry with 4-door locking from driver's and front passenger's controls; front and rear stabilizers and front disc brakes. The car is exceptionally tight and quiet. The engine compartment is well laid out and very tidy. The Lancer LS is an excellent long trip car for it's size and has plenty of legroom for rear seat passengers.
