Review of the 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer

  • A midpack player in base and O-Z Rally trim, the more powerful and fun-to-drive Ralliart model gives the Lancer the boost it needs to compete with the class leaders.

    Spacious and nicely appointed interior, smooth power delivery, comfortable ride, spirited acceleration in Ralliart model.

  • Cons

    Base engine lacks punch, ABS and side airbags not available on all models, small trunk.

The O-Z Rally receives newly designed O-Z racing wheels, and the ES Convenience package is upgraded with color-keyed mirrors, cruise control and intermittent wipers. The Sun & Sound package is now available on the O-Z Rally.

Great car, bad company

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Bought this car new for myself, drove the wheels off and enjoyed this car completely. It had a 10 year 100k mile warranty that was rather reassuring but when the motor blew, Mitsubishi refused to honor the warranty. I will never again purchase anything Mitsubishi and I advise all to heed this caveat.

The only problem I have had with my Lancer now at 15,000 miles is that there's no aftermarket following for these cars. It will be very difficult to try to customise your Lancer and you WILL pay for your individualty. As is, it is an excellent car for the money. But if you're looking for a tuner car go ahead and move on or at least consider the Ralliart version.

I got my car brand new with 7 miles on it 3 of which I put on during a test drive. I just wish it came with more stock hosepower. I have a DMT racing muffler which I got a ticket for so that helps a little. It handles awsome and is just a sweet ride.




Decent import

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

Overall, the OZ edition is a good buy. No one would be dissatisfied by the features. Mileage is decent and the car is plain fun. Plus I haven't yet seen another just like mine on the road anywhere I've been. The audio is weak, but replacing the head unit makes for a decent system. The car is also highly modifyable, though nearly every possible change voids the warranty. By the way, the 10 year warranty is solid.




Mitsubishi... i love you.

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I could not understand buying this car in anything but manual. It allows you to get every ounce of power out of the 120 hp engine. The OZ, spec wise, is just a base Evo so it is great for a tuner car. For all ages looking for something peppy and sporty without having to compromise comfort. This car has provided enough room to fit two 6' adult males in the back comfortably for a road trip. Turning radius: this car can turn circles without the inside tire leaving it's place. Performance is definitely a 10 for the power out of the small engine and the great handling and soundness on the road. Fairly quiet drive.

Comfortable on long trips and great fuel mileage. Headroom is very good. Sound system much better than expected. Excellent air conditioning.
