I loved this car very much. It was my very first brand new car, and it made driving it an occasion. It felt very premium, and the need to be pampered a bit would result in an absolutely great driving experience. Just pay attention to the CVT in the 2009 model, and everything will be peachy.
I love this car! I had a 2009 and had it for 4 years. This was one of the greatest vehicles I ever owned. The car was very low maintanece and drove lovely in the snow. If you are a commuter this is a good vehicle to have to save you on gas! The Lancer turns on a drop a dime. Easy to handle and overall a fun car to drive! I will highly recommend this vehicle to any who likes the sporty looks and like to save on gas.
First off the Evo is just an amazing car. The first day I bought mine Ive been in love with it ever since. If you ask anyone who knows about these cars, they will say its a fast car. You have no clue until you actually drive one for yourself. The handling and performance is just remarkable. I let a friend drive my Evo because I was too tired to drive, and as he started flying down back roads I was feeling sick. Once you think that you have gotten use to the cars launch ability sit in the passenger seat and its an even bigger beast. The all wheel drive system is also amazing. I can take an off ramp off of a highway that has a posted speed of 25 at 55. I would not recommend doing that but If one day you are being chased IT CAN be done. I haven't yet had the pleasure of driving it in the snow yet so I cant tell you how that is but in the rain it handles as if the ground was dry. Dirt and gravel its a monster. You have to drive this car to know what Im talking about. For daily driving its not bad. There is a huge trunk to fit groceries and etc. and plenty of room in the back seat for other passengers. The only flaw is the appearance and the stereo system. The Evo VII, VIII, IV are good cars. Although the MR worth the money. The MR has almost 40 more HP and has a sixth gear. It also comes with Bilsitein shocks and 17 inch gunmetal Enikei racing wheels. It also has Xenon headlamps, fog lights and gauges. The is also a vortex generator on the roof and a flap on the spoiler which helps keep he back of the car on the ground. The stereo in the regular Evo is not too bad but could be better. This car is a tuned down race car but it would be better with a little bump from the speakers. Overall the Evo is an amazing car and can satisfy all of your expectations. I would recommend this car to anyone who loves to drive. Excellent choice.
