Evolution X wheels

Review

I have had this car since June of 09 and drove for about 13,000 miles B 4 selling it. I do think it is important to give a review after having a car for awhile to get to know it. The Ralliart for the money was a good car. Built like a tank, quick, agile, and had good looks. It felt like you were driving around in a shell, road noise permeated the cabin, stock tires were very poor. The car improved greatly when they were replaced with Toyo T1R's. Handling and road noise were greatly reduced. Good car for the money but needs some refinements. Happy with it overall.


Favorite Features

Looks, Stereo, performance. Not on bad on fuel 24 mpg. Recaro seats!


Suggested Improvements

Interior materials, road noise and trashy engine @ High RPM.

Review

I think this car is great for the money you spend. its 10 - 15 grand cheaper than any of the Evo's (GSR/MR/MR Touring) for a difference of 50 HP (larger turbo) and different suspension, rims, and a transmission (Taken from older EVO) Your spending most of that 10 - 15 grand on the name, and the small differences listed above. I wanted the Evo, but i didn't want to spend 40 grand on the MR touring. This car is a great deal for the money. You could take that 10-15 grand you saved and make it alot nicer and or faster if you wanted to. The car is quick and fun, it gets decent gas and is big enough for a family, and can drive anywhere due to its all wheel drive and traction control.


Favorite Features

Cheaper cost, Turbo, All wheel drive, and traction control. Great for anywhere and quick/fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

slightly better gas and more HP, heated leather seats.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Ralliart 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

This is an amazing car for what it is. Value and character. For one of the few AWD cars on the market with a straight 4 and the turbo provides amazing power from 20-120+mph and is a dead accurate vehicle. Shifts are precise, engine is solid, turbo is ample. Just a true joy to drive when you are in the mood. However, it's not a great highway cruiser or Sunday driver, it's a harsh and loud ride with little insulation and driver amenities. I use this car for a 65 mile commute daily (round trip) and it has its downfalls. Noise, moderate fuel mileage, VERY SMALL GAS TANK and loud overall with performance tires. But it is what it is: performance car with power to spare & character to match!


Favorite Features

The power! The addictive power. AWD is a plus for sliding into turns and it will rip the steering wheel from your hands if you aren't prepared. I haven't yet met a car on the road that the RA won't run with, except unmarked State Trooper cars. It really is an amazing ride!


Suggested Improvements

More sound insulation, less harsh exhaust note and quieter tires. Annoying buzz around 2500rpms while cruising. It also hunts for gears a lot between 6th, 5th and sometimes 4th, be prepared. The fuel tank is a joke, 12.5 gallons. I fill up every 3 days.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Ralliart 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

I've owned this car a couple months and love it. Its 230hp keeps it as fast and fun as just about anything out there, while the 4 door design maintains practicality for passengers and other daily uses. The shiftable automatic transmission is a joy when you want it to be. The AWD keeps the car stuck to the road. Standard technology includes bluetooth phone to make calls without taking your phone from your pocket and a "FAST" key remote sensor that enables you to unlock and start the car with the key in your pocket. The exterior styling is fantastic.


Favorite Features

Transmission, horsepower and torque, AWD, exterior design, bluetooth phone, FAST key.


Suggested Improvements

Could use a telescopic steering wheel.
