2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

As of October 2010 with over 55,000 miles still loving my 2006 Lancer SE. I had to get new tires at 50,000 miles and the brakes are about due for service (at 58,000 miles!!). I used to tell people my 1993 Honda Civic was the best car I ever owned, but I think my Lancer has beat it. Nothing but regular maintenance after 55,000 miles and 4 years, incredible!


Best Features

Comfortable interior, handling.


Worst Features

More horsepower, better mileage.* *( this is more a reflection of the industry in general, than Mitsubishi Motors) The '93 Civic referenced above got over 40 mpg highway, 36 mpg city, whereas my Lancer tops out At 34 mpg highway. Still love it!!

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

After 25,000 miles I had to update my review of my 2006 Lancer SE. Still love it! After reading reviews of Honda Fit and Kia Rio5 (by the way my first choices), reviews cite poor mileage (well below EPA estimates), and some quality issues with the Kia. My Lancer is still running strong, I've done nothing but regular maintenance, and even though I was originally disappointed with the mileage, after further research it looks good (above average). My Mitsubishi has been very reliable

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I thought that the car was very much a cheap and quick rip off. I wish I had seen this before I bought it because I now know it thoroughly. It is quick through town, but has slow acceleration on the highways.


Best Features

The handling, manual transmission, clutch give, and the available colors.


Worst Features

Too much to be improved.

2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Sedan SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is fantastic. It has zip, is very comfortable, and has tons of room in the back. The trunk is a nice size. With the price of gas, the Lancer is the auto to own. Having had Honda's, Fords, VW's, and a gas hog Jeep, this is my best decision yet. The only thing that would make it better, hmm... perhaps add cup holders in the back.


Worst Features

Add cup holders in the back and lighted mirrors above dash (for us girls).

Review

Being a former Kia owner I was shopping for a new Kia, but found a great deal on a Lancer SE. It was a great decision! It rides great, has all the options I wanted, and gets good gas mileage. Although the Edmunds.com review cites poor acceleration as a drawback, they must have tested an automatic, I think my five speed is pretty peppy.


Best Features

I like how it has power everything (including the sunroof), a great stereo, good acceleration with the manual transmission, a great ride, and a good warranty.


Worst Features

None
