2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)
Purchased new in Sept. 06, after shopping all the others, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc...
we picked the Lancer.
There is plenty of room for the driver, I'm 6'4".
Will carry 4 adults and luggage.
Handles great, good performance, for a 4 dr sedan.
Very comfortable for short or long drives (took a 7 day 4k mile trip) gets 25-30 mpg around town and 29-36 hwy. have over 98k miles and still runs great, with only oil changes, tires and timing belt replaced, still has factory brakes!
one of the best if not the best car I have every owned/driven (have owned 36 cars/trucks)
Smooth ride, quiet and very responsive handling.
would like to have seen a 5 or 6 speed automatic and better mpg.
but can't complain for the money a great car!
