Great first car I must say!
By Tarantula on


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


Bought it about 7 months ago with 132k miles on it. Was a little skeptical about it but when I drove it, I couldn't believe its 7 years old. Great gas mileage (about 30 mpg combined), fun to drive (in short commutes but not on the highway), and great reliability. I drove like 12k miles in just six months of purchase and needed nothing other than regular oil change. There is some room for improvement such as, temperature knob is hard to rotate and I'm not the only one facing this, no abs/cruise. But other than these issues the car is great.

Best Features

Gas mileage, zippy, and not much to go wrong.

Worst Features

HVAC temperature knob, cruise control and ABS.
