2008 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Many complain that gas mileage is "poor under hard acceleration, no HID lights, no leather option, etc." This is an economy car people!!!! Of course mileage is bad when you drive aggressively, HID's come on cars that are typically $25K+ (as well as leather). I will review this car for exactly what it is and against it's competitors. The build quality is horrible. Paint is very bad as well. Mileage is excellent, though. Interior materials rattle, interior noise can be deafening. It's not "exciting" to drive, nor is it fast. SUV's smoked me at on-ramps. It looks good though. For the same price, VW Rabbit, Mazda 3, etc are all better choices. I got rid of my Lancer after 5 months.

Best Features

Exterior design (not quality).

Worst Features

Paint, build quality (fix the rattles!), insulation. The engine may be good (though very underpowered), but who wants a car when everything else on it rattles and falls apart??
