2009 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
We bought this GTS in Oct 08 from Northside Mitsubishi in Edmonton. The car looked great and seemed to be fairly tight. We were pretty excited being our first new car for my wife. at 4000km, the rear main engine seal half way through a 1200km trip. The engine needed to be pulled and the seal replaced. Roadside assistance did nothing for us and we limped 600km to the dealership, filling oil every 50km. At 6400 the transmission started packing it in and will be going in for replacement on April 13th 2009. The company will do nothing for us other then repairing the major issues even when they struggle in today's market. Replacing the vehicle would be the solution, which they declined.
Stereo and front end design.
If you claim to sell reliable cars and one isn't, then replace the vehicle to save face. Nobody wants a brand new lemon.
