2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


I purchased this car on April 30th as my first new car after graduating college. I considered the Subaru Impreza and Mazda 3 but was blown away by the price, standard features, and performance of the Lancer. The 5 speed is fun and smooth. The engine could have more power, but with average 28-30 mpg I can't complain. Build quality seems to be great so far. The ES comes standard with many nice features such as steering wheel mounted audio controls and alloy wheels. You don't need to spend a lot of money to get a great looking Lancer. The ES comes standard with many great features. Sure there are always improvements, but for the price it's hard to beat. I highly recommend it.

Best Features

5 speed manual, steering wheel mounted controls, high MPG, tight handling, overall quality.

Worst Features

Improve the base sound system and add a 6th gear to the transmission. When the car is rolling on the highway, it feels like it could take a 6th gear. But overall not many needed improvements.
