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.
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.
Lancers are fun to drive and economical to own

I would recommend this car on several different levels if you have a family it is a four-door sedan that still has the sporty body and pep that you would expect from a coup while being versatile for a family . This is the second lancer that I have owned and I know during collisions the cab holds together very well...totaled my previous one with multiple rolls and walked out of it. Gas mileage is on the higher end of acceptable if you're even with reason one tank can get over 400 miles . This car can just as quick go off road as it can be used every day in city traffic and drives exceptionally during a rain and other inclement weather .
