2003 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Lancer OZ but she has been a headache. Note to drivers: do not get into an accident. After an accident and the car has no value left to it and the problems are irrepairable. It still drives like a dream with 50,000 miles but it has noises like you wouldn't beleive. Horrible in the snow and rain but on nice days, handels and zips like a dream.


Best Features

Sunroof, handeling, power, and performance.


Worst Features

ABS, both of my accidents would have been avoided if I had ABS in the car.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I HAVE OWNED THIS CAR SINCE JANUARY 2003
AND DRIVE IT TO WORK EVERYDAY. IT GETS
AROUND 32MPG. I HAVE ALWAYS OWNED BIG
CARS WITH POWER, AND DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO
EXPECT FROM A SMALLER CAR, BUT SO FAR
I'M NOT DISAPPOINTED. MECHANICALLY, THIS
IS AN EXCELLENT AUTOMOBILE. I CURRENTLY
HAVE 51,000 MILES ON THE ODOMMETER. I
HAVE CHANGED THE OIL EVERY 3,000 MILES
AND HAVE SCHEDULED MY FIRST TUNE-UP
NEXT WEEK.


Best Features

COMFORT AND EASE OF DRIVING. GREAT GAS MILEAGE.


Worst Features

I JUST WISH THE TRANSMISSION HAD O/D, BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT WOULD GET EVEN BETTER GAS MILEAGE THAN IT DOES.

Review

I purchased my Lancer brand new. I
really thought that I wouldnt like it.
I LOVE that car. Granted, its' not the
fastest car on the block, but it's
pretty darn zippy, and I have no
problems getting on the highway at a
highway speed or faster. I havent had
the opportunity to take it to the
mountains to see how it does (in
colorado).It gets great gas mileage
30-31 mpg combined. I really couldnt
ask for anything more for the price
except anti-lock brakes. The car comes
loaded;powerwindows,locks,cruise,tilt.
My car has a/m leather interior which
matches the color or the car (yellow
and black) and I get a lot of
compliments and looks about my car.


Best Features

Good gas mileage


Worst Features

On the key fob, have a trunk release button so you can open trunk remotely. Add anti-lock brakes. Make 17" wheels an option. 15" a tad too small

Review

I purchased this car in March of 2003,
I actually traded in my 1999 Honda EX
Civic Coupe for it. I fell in love with
the Lancer style long before it was
released in the US, the body lines are
unique, which is what I like.
The lancer actually surprised most
of my friends with the ability to push
you into the seat off the line. It has
been reported to have 120 hp, it seems
like it has more hp that most cars in
its class.
I am 6'7" tall and 250 lbs and the
lancer is very comfortable.


Worst Features

More Power, offer a 2WD version with a turbo.
