Best Performing Car I've owned

I bought the Mitsubishi Lancer 2013 for about $20,000, and I have been using it since: going to work, taking the kids to football training, everything. It is great value for money, with a city mpg of about 18, and if you hit the highway, it can be as good a s 34. It has an extremely stylish and comfortable interior for a car of its price range, and is made of good quality materials- mine has survived three kids! Performance-wise, the Lancer is a gem, and it'll give you world class rally performance for an everyday price. The Lancer is a wonderful car, balancing all of its different attributes to make one wonderful personality.

I purchased a 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer GT about a month ago and I love it. The car looks great with a very aggressive front fascia, beautiful real tail lights, nice 18 inch wheel and tire combo, and beautiful interior details. The GT I purchased came with the black piano finish accents on the interior, factory installed skid plates, shift knob, e-brake, and gas door accents that all really make the car stand out. The car handles great in the corners and feels stuck to the ground, yet is a smooth ride for everyday driving. The engine has enough power to give it some pep and still get good gas mileage. The CVT transmission is strange to drive at first but if you step on it the car responds well. The paddle shifters are a cool show piece but not all that practical with the 2.4L engine. The extras like the fast key entry system, fog lights, and blue tooth are great values at this price point. I have friends with new ford focuses, mazda 3's, and corollas and they couldn't believe the deal I got on the car and all wanted to trade vehicles. The stock 6 speaker non rockford stereo system is nice and clear but not very loud and average at best. The best aspects of the car are its exterior looks, its a real head turner. I got mine in the dark blue and after the first wash and wax it looks amazing. Interior room is good for its class and trunk space is great. The 60/40 folding seats are easy to use and convenient. Driver and passenger leg room is great for your average sized individual and the seats are supportive yet comfortable. My last car was a coupe and this car sits slightly higher but still has a sporty feel. I feel the GT is a great buy, better looks then the DE and SE models but not nearly as expensive as the Ralliart or Evo. Overall I am very pleased with the car and the service at the Mitsubishi dealership was great with a lifetime powertrain warranty and lifetime oil changes.

The reason not to buy

Very plastic interior. Most part are made of PVC and will deteriorate very quickly. It is not cost effective in the mid term as parts are very expensive. I have a 2000 Galant that is worthless as a trade in as the dash is cracked and the heater core needs to be replaced at a dealer cost of $2300. Styling will not over come the poor economics of this manufacturer or the falsification of complaint reports by Mitsubishi that is now being reported in the media. Point is – the vehicle is not cost effective. Maybe most people have already figured this out and that is why Mitsubishi sales are in the toilet. Don’t buy any Mitsubishi product until they improve their engineering practices. Last person out – turn out the lights. RIP Mitsubishi.
