First this car is a racing car, if you don't like to race or drive fast please don't buy it, now if you buy it for the right reason then its amazing. I take my evo mr to the tracks to race drag strip. After beating 14 BMW me, 15 camaro z28 and 13 mustang 5.0 i knew this car is special. Mr has stock launch control which is amazing. Regular driving is like a toyota corolla, i had a corolla and its the same feeling. Not bad and not great on gas. Crusing i average 25mpg, regular driving i average 21mpg
I bought an 2012 EVO X from CarMax was a great machine. Sold it back a year later for a Lexus IS-F. I'only regret the IS-f not a manual If your Married and your mate does not like this car. they will force you to hate it. The Evo handles like a race car, it hugs the road and feels every fault of the road. Motor is powerful for it size, but i still feel bias to a 4 banger. I would recommend this Evolution if you can't hold onto a two door coupe like a mustang or 370z. Be aware of the tires that come from the factory too expensive buy PS2. recommend two sets if you live in an area that snows. Also without modification this car sounds very boring in the cabin and tends to have two much body lean for the feedback you get from the road.
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.
