2011 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl CVT)
I bought a Lancer SX recently and have clocked 1600km and the CVT has behaved very strangely from day one. It lurches about dramatically especially when cold. Taking foot off accelerator produces sudden jolts, sometimes quite violently, and it then seems to want to brake on its own and slows down rapidly while coasting. Braking often produces a sensation like the car is fighting against the braking and wanting to surge forward. This is the weirdest drive I've ever had and have had no support from Mistubishi - the first 1500km service last week I gave the dealer a very concise report on this problem, and they had the car for TWO DAYS. They said the problem was fixed, but it has not.
Safety features seem really good, and the overall dash layout simple but functional. Driving position comfortable.
Stop with the CVT idea unless Mitsu can make it work properly
