2010 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
Got the car used at 36k miles.. Got it relatively cheaper than the other cars in the same range out there..
The gearbox is among the better ones I have used and the throw feels very slick.. The performance is not very bad, but then the engine doesn't feel very refined over 4-5k rpm..
The looks of the car are definitely a plus, and did influence me considerably against the Mazda 3.
So, overall, not a bad car at all, though there are definitely sportier ones out there at this price range.
