2009 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
After owning the vehicle for six months, the paint in the rear quarter panels is chipping by the rear doors. I took this to the dealer and they nearly laughed at me. The service manager encouraged me to file a fraudulent insurance claim to so that they could get compensated and repaint the vehicle for me. Body shop people stated that this is a design flaw and a lot of Lancer's are having this problem. I was actually told to just budget for body work every year. Such a shame because I love the car otherwise.
I like all the features that came standard.
Do a proper paint job, make mudflaps standard and add an aftermarket laminate or some sort of edge cover over along the bottom frame of the vehicle and the wheel wells.
