I purchased a used 2008 Mitsubishi Evolution X. I've had it for 3 Months. Here is what I have found so far:
turbo and fast
Looks great and seats 5
Thin paint that is easily damaged
Transmission and gear shifter crunches and grinds and shifts poorly.
Cheap plastic interior

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!
nice basic car

This car has a CVT. It will drift back, while in drive, on an incline. Acceleration from standing is delayed. Rapid highway acceleration can seem like being in a slingshot. Sometimes the automatic "shifting" feels unusual/out of synch.
I would NOT recommend any CVT equipped vehicle for stop/go commuting or around town. For highway travel out of traffic, it's good. Personally, I'll stick to fully geared transmissions.
