2007 Mitsubishi LancerGranny - Park Forest, IL09/02/2008
This is my first Mitsubishi car. I am very please with it. Down sizing from a 6 cylinder and a larger car to a 4 cylinder isn't to bad. I am learning to give it more gas when entering the highway. It is great on gas and is very comfortable for four people and rides very smoothly. The economy being the way it is, a Mitsubishi Lancer is the car to have.
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
I recently traded in my Suzuki (great car, by the way) and test drove a Mitsubishi Lancer ES. It was great, very peppy but I could still maintain a decent speed... It's very comfortable for my commute in that I drive almost 65 miles a day, and it is so quiet.. I don't have to blare my radio whenever a semi passes me on the highway. The only thing I do not like about the car is the dash... for the beauty of the car, the radio and environment controls are incredibly dull; they don't seem to fit the overall appearance of the car.
I haven't ever owned a Mitsu, but I have had a Suzuki in the past (my baby!) and I can only hope that the dependability matches the Suzuki. From what I've read, it seems pretty secure to say it will.
