This is our 2nd Mitsu ( we owned the "mirage" - the precursor to the Lancer and ran it 225,000 miles and still got our money back out of it!) This just runs and runs. All 5 of us can fit in it comfortably to zip around town the fuel economy is great!
Not the flashiest of vehichles, but DEPENDABLE, COMFORATABLE and best of all AFFORDABLE.
Haven't replaced brakes yet since purchase new in 2010 labor day. Low cost of maintenance overall, but many owners forget about the CVT Transmission fluid servicing every 50k miles. Not the best for long distance drives, but for a daily work commute it gets the job done well. Also, I love the handling in this car and how it handles the elements very well.
