2009 Mitsubishi Lancer 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.
