2011 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


CVT takes a little getting used to.
It's much quicker using the paddle shifters or manual mode if you want to jet off the line.

I put a Takeda SRI intake-cheap/easy mod and it wakes it up a little bit/sounds great

The GTS handles extremely well. It really does feel like a sport sedan in the curves and it's fun to use the paddles on the back roads.
Steering is great.
Cruises effortlessly on the freeway at 80+.

Seats are very comfortable.
Interior is nice if not spectacular.

My only gripe with my GTS is I find the gas pedal angle kind of uncomfortable.
It's too short or something.
I got some larger RAZO aftermaket pedals which I'll be installing soon to help alleviate.

Best Features

Looks (18" wheels, sticky tires), paddle shifters, seats, warranty, Mitsu reliability (my Dad had 170K trouble free miles on his 3000GT VR-4), bluetooth, price (got a left over '2011 in 2012 heavily discounted).

Worst Features

Instead of an mp3 direct aux input, there are VCA cables inputs so you need to buy an adapter to play your mp3 player. Not really an "improvement" but if you buy this car you will hear the road...especially on the freeway. The tires are noisy and the suspension is sport-tuned. Ride is firm but not harsh.
