2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Lancer bought brand new from a dealer. I've had it for 4 years and the car is worth every penny I paid for it. Very economical, high clearance (yes, you can park close to the curb and not break the bumper!), decent trunk for the size, quality build vehicle. What I don't like is noise at high speeds and not the best MPs in its class(probably because of high clearance) - I was averaging 28/31 (EPA 28/34), tight pedal compartment, long working diapason of the clutch.
Easy on my wallet, high ground clearance, comfy seats
shorter clutch, more precise shifter, more foot space for the driver.
