What a nice car!

I got this car 6 days ago after researching for a month an a half, I decided to get the Lancer ES with CVT because of the great number of features included, the handling, the quality of the interior, the nice and modern exterior styling and the long Mitsubishi warranty. This is my fourth Mitsubishi. I have owned a 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS, a 1993 Mitsubishi Mirage S and a 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS. I have always been extremely satisfied with the reliability and craftsmanship of this automaker. The Lancer 2008 is a piece of art, an intelligent design, affordable and competitive. I highly recommend this car if you are in the market for an economical four door, sporty vehicle.


Great car for the money

My previous car was stolen. I drove an Acura so I do like preformence with my cars. I needed to get a car quick and for less then I would have wanted to spend. I looked at all the cars in the same price range and choose the Lancer and have not looked back. Some ppl say the engine is too loud, but honestly with a car that looks like this you expect a little noise. Nice power and handleing, I still cant get over how nice an overall package this thing is for the price. I honestly could see it costing five to eight thousand more then what they sell it at.


Great Car

I love this car, the only down side is it has a lot of interior noise when driving and also if you drive it when the engine is cold it is really loud. Other than that it is perfect. Wish I would have gotten the sun and sound package now, but still is a great sporty car.


Mitsubishi's best lancer

Great car to own, fun to drive, excellent value considering it's features. Mitsubishi's service is very good considering it's long warranty. Only complaint is the dark LCD screen for the radio. Get the lancer with the sound and sun package.


Excellent Car!!

I bought my 2008 Lancer ES last month. It's not the sports car, it just looks like one at first glance. The engine drives like a standard family sedan with plenty of power when needed. It does handle like you are driving a sports car and it is an exceptionaly smooth ride. The sterio is awesome! Make sure to get the 300W subwoofer and sun roof! The ES version is well worth the extra expense over the DE. Looks great as well. Everyone likes it and enjoys riding in the car. It is alot of fun to be in. Also, the red lights for seeing the controls at night is very pratical as well as elegant.


Awesome Car

I Love everything about it. It has great handling and power. I love the looks and the stereo is awesome and i have the standard cd radio.



I bought this car new, i love it i have the GTS with the navigation, and tiptronic magneasuim paddle shifters. the car drives amazing. great car and i would reccomend it to any one! if you are looking for a classy and sporty car this is the one.


GTS is the only way`

So I whent out for my b-day and traded in my FORD For a new lancer! I couldnt be more happy with the car. I love the F.A.S.T. Key, The Nav And most of all the sound systam that blows you out of the car. The only thing I think the GTS is lacking is a stronger engine. You know it has the looks but not all the beans under the hood. I cant wate for them to get us an aftermarket turbo for this car. If your in the market for a sub compact look at this one frist!


Fun Car To Drive

What a beautiful car. When I first saw the new Lancer driving down the road I was stunned by its aggressive design. I ended up trading in my older vehicle for a metallic silver GTS standard with the sun and sound package. The car is fun to drive and handles extremely well. Unless you get the touch screen display however, the interior is a little lacking. The biggest concern I have is Mitsubishi's shaky history as well as its current problems. I love this car and am taking a gamble by owning one. We will see in a few years how reliable this car actually is and it will be interesting to see its resale value. Other than that issue I think people will enjoy the 08 Lancer.


Mitsubishi Lancer ES Owner

This car I just looked at saw a DE drive by and after I saw that and from having family that worked for Mitsubishi and already owning a 2006 Eclipse I went and looked this car over with the total package on the ES that I got and for the price and all the details this car included I just couldn't pass it up!! This car is so much more comfortable than the 2007 that I just couldn't stand with the way it was made. Once I put myself in the seat of the car drove it I was hooked on the car. I wanted the GTS but oh well I am very happy with the car I have. This car will do well and it won't be the end I see good things with Mitsubishi doing it this way and making there vehicles like this!!
