This is the first car i have owned, I had a truck before, and I am nothing less than thrilled. The Lancer has a mean, sexy look and can be modded many different ways. The car handles like a dream and has the magnesium(dunno if i spelled that right) paddle shifters if you choose to drive it in what I call semi-manual mode. It may not be the fastest ride out there but there is space to put in a turbo and there are many decently priced performance mods out there. There is an in dash nav, and a Rockford Fostgate sound system with a bangin' 10 inch sub stock in the trunk. The inside is roomy and it has a sun roof that opens fairy wide. All in all this care is a wonderful daily driver and a great car for anyone who is into modding cars. I definitely recommend this car to anyone.
So this is my first true sportscar and I am not disappointed. Driving this around the DC/Metro area during the winter has proven to be a breeze. Just slip the traction control into the proper conditions and let the car do the thinking for you! Just so that people know, the Evo has a very stiff suspension so make sure that you are comforatble with being intimate with every bump on the road. Personally I enjoy the tight feel the car has, not squishy like other cars i've had. Going around turns this car does not want to lean much at all, and the Recaro seats do their job of making you feel like you are held in place. I enjoy driving this car so much that I actually use it for my commute into DC. Overall I have to say that this is one mean machine.
This is the nicest car I have ever owned. Comfy seats, sporty styling and handling, good stereo, peppy engine, and the smoothest transmission (I have the cvt). To be honest I never would've considered this car had it not been for my saleswoman who convinced me to take it for a test drive. When I got behind the wheel I was surprised by the responsive handling and good ride quality. That's something hard to find in a car company's entry level car. For you do it yourselfers out there I've also found this car really easy to work on. It's just a really well engineered car for the price. With the civic and corolla in the same price range it was no question for me, the lancer was the way to go. I've put nearly 2000 miles on my car in the month and a half I've had it and enjoyed every moment of it. Hope this helps someone make a decision or even just consider looking at a lancer!
