I have a 2006 Lancer SE with sunroof, wheels and power everything. Car rides very comfy and is very economical to own. I average 26 mpg. Engine not that powerful but neither lethargic and gets the job done. Interior quality is very good. I love the chrome details on my SE edition. Alcantara inserts on the seats. Ride quality is set for comfort not sporty. I have 47,000 miles on the ODO and never had any problems. No breakdown. Is been reliable and pleasent to own. I truly recoment this vehicle to anyone looking for economical, reliable transportation and they refused to be seen in a Corolla/Civic "mee too" car.

I've had my Lancer ES for 3 years, 48,000 miles. I've never had any problems with it, except that I had to replace the windshield, and tires, both of which are due to the way I drive. I would have liked a little more power, but it's not bad. I just totaled it 3 days ago- I was T-boned on my driver's side and flipped over. I walked away from the accident with only cuts and bruises, which has to say something for this car's safety. Also, I commute to work and it has the best fuel economy of any of my friends cars.

One of the most reliable cars I've owned

I've owned my 2006 Lancer ES for about 3 years. I bought it brand new and it hasn't given me any problems. This car is very reliable, but the fact that it doesn't have ABS concerns me. For day to day driving, this car is an exceptional choice. However, there is too much body roll on the highway, and comfort doesn't last on long highway trips. One thing I don't like about the ES trim is it's lack of some features, like an alarm system, keyless entry with a panic buttonm heated side mirrors, and no backseat headrests. Lancer has a nice design and is easy to handle. Overall, I think Lancer is a car worthy of consideration.

I bought my Lancer SE new in 2006 and it was a great buy. At 71,000 miles I have replaced tires, brakes, windshield wipers, and one headlight bulb, other than that it has seen only regular maintenance. Absolutely the best car I've ever owned (I had a 1993 Honda Civic which was the previous #1). Interior quality is first rate. I love the Alcantara seats, they look great and are very comfortable. All the controls are well placed and easy to use. Handling is great, acceleration is adequate, and mileage is good. I recommend Mitsubishi cars to anyone looking for quality and reliability.

This is a great car. I bought one of these brand new back in 2006 as my first car. It was a reliable vehicle. I averaged about 32-32 mpg (that's over 300 miles on a $20 tank of fuel!!) It is very comfortable, and roomy. My only complaint is the suspension. This vehicle has a fair amount of body roll, it tend to feel like its floating on the road. I put about 320,000 miles on this vehicle before the transmission gave out. I had my first car for over 10 years! Never gace me a problem. It was hard to say goodbye. Just keep the oil, spark plugs, and timing belt changed and this car will treat you well.
