2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback LS 4dr Wagon (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I bought this new. The seats are great, the head rests sit perfect so I can leave my head on the head rest while driving. The roof rack is great to hold cargo box. Suspension is stiff enough that the cargo loaded down for camping is forgotten about. I normal drive with a tool box in back and corners and pulls like a sport coupe. I bought this to keep up with my Datsun 280ZX that I still drive. The Sportback will out straight line and corner the Z but will not give you the precise feedback of the Z saying that about a wagon that gets the same MPG as My Z is amazing I now have 66k miles on the Wagon. MPG 29 hy "towing a HondaTRX450R" 26 hy PS this replaced my Dodge D-50 SP 5 sp

Best Features

Power and MPG Mivec for MPG and power I did not like auto until I drove this. stiff suspension is a big plus for me but it is also compliant over bumps. and hardly notices wind. I do not like front drive but this is a good one. Mitsubishi makes more reliable autos than manual.

Worst Features

I installed The Injen intake to open up throttle response and MPG and optional manual 5 or 6 speed maybe a 5 or 6 speed auto would be nice not a CVT. Tires awful I installed Michelin Hydro edge for good all season handiling and tire life
