A Fun car to drive

ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 4A)

Purchased new in Sept. 06, after shopping all the others, Toyota, Nissan, Honda, etc... we picked the Lancer. There is plenty of room for the driver, I'm 6'4". Will carry 4 adults and luggage. Handles great, good performance, for a 4 dr sedan. Very comfortable for short or long drives (took a 7 day 4k mile trip) gets 25-30 mpg around town and 29-36 hwy. have over 98k miles and still runs great, with only oil changes, tires and timing belt replaced, still has factory brakes! one of the best if not the best car I have every owned/driven (have owned 36 cars/trucks)

I recently was t-boned on the drivers side. The Lancer was totaled but I walked away. I am completely satisfied with the saftey and reliablity of the car.

Love my Lancer 3

As of October 2010 with over 55,000 miles still loving my 2006 Lancer SE. I had to get new tires at 50,000 miles and the brakes are about due for service (at 58,000 miles!!). I used to tell people my 1993 Honda Civic was the best car I ever owned, but I think my Lancer has beat it. Nothing but regular maintenance after 55,000 miles and 4 years, incredible!

Mitusubishi Lancer ES - Excellent Value

The Lancer is an excellent value! It has Japanese build quality, feels substantial, gets good fuel economy, has an above average sound sytem, and it absorbs bumps with ease. So far my car has been very reliable. I drove a 1999 Mitsubishi Lancer MX-Extra 1.5 4cylinder in Asia for 4 years and put 178,000 trouble free miles even under extremely heat, stress, and stop and go traffic. My brother is still driving it. The 2006 Lancer feels much stiffer, has more power, interior room and should easily last 250,000 miles+ if maintained according to the owners' manual. Overall this is one of the best Japanese Econo Sedans money can buy. It has a solid build quality. The best value is the ES. Go for the Ralliart if you want to go 0-100 fast and then back down to 0 with all round disc and the 2.4L engine.

Good Reliable gas saving car.

I bought a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer used few months ago with 145K miles on it. The only reason why I got this car was because the engine and the transmission was still in good condition. This car is really reliable and is a good gas saving car too. I had a 2006 toyota Camry earlier and when compared to mitsubishi lancer I didn't knew mitsubishi was as reliable as a toyota. I would definitely reccomend this car to anyone. Before I got this car I went ahead and test drove a 2005 hyundai elantra and man that car had only like 100k miles and the automatic transmission already started slipping. Man thank god I didn't take the hyundai. I am glad that I was able to get mitsubishi lancer instead of the hyundai elantra. Japanese car's are really reliable , gas saving and also there cheap to fix too incase something goes wrong. Even their parts are cheaper too. I do my own oil change so I Make sure to Put good quality oil and oil filter too. I personally use Mobil 1 since it's recommended for American and Japanese cars. I also change the automatic transmission fluid every 50k miles for my mitsubishi lancer. As long as I follow strict scheduled maintenance service for my car I believe that it can last as long as above 300k.
