good bang for drivers buck

by car guy from salem or on March 13, 2007

This vehicle has plenty of power and is quite a hoot to drive. I would recommend it to anyone who does not want to drive the same car and everyone else(you accord and camry guys know who you are).

attention getter

by ams from caledonia canada on August 4, 2008

This car is a blast to drive and with the wagon design has been a real work horse. I bought this car new because it stood out in a crowd unlike the rest of the cookie cutter designs of the other car companies.My only complaint would be that the gas mileage is not that great for a four cylinder.

fun and different

by not like everything else from maryland on January 13, 2010

I always hear about Mitsubishi's poor reliability but i have yet to experience it. I have had my car for five years and i love it.the extra room with the seats down has come in handy more times than i can count,(i actually managed to fit a small couch in the back of it).this car is very fast even with the extra weight in the back and its handling is amazing.i changed the tires to low profile 17 inch racing tires because the stock rims were ugly and looked like bicycle tires.the new tires improved the handling a lot.the exterior styling is very different which is one of the reasons i liked it so much,it doesn't look like everything else on the road and i don't have to worry about losing it in the parking lot. the interior is a little disappointing. considering that this is the top of the line version i would have thought that Mitsubishi would have offered more interior options and features. no leather option, no power seats,it costs more but gets no sunroof while the sedan does? also no awd option. definitely disappointing given the price. the seats are comfortable for most trips.the passenger seat could use more leg and foot room though, i'm 6ft 1 and wear a size 14 and there is just no way to get comfortable in the passenger seat even when its all the way back .The only complaints i have other than the passenger seat is that it does terrible in bad weather thanks to the new tires(should have stuck with the originals). i also had a problem with the car not wanting to accelerate but when i moved and started using bp instead of citgo my car is driving like new again. i hope Mitsubishi changed their paint because for this model year the paint is atrocious Ive had my door painted twice and it is starting to flake off again. overall i am very happy with this car.

385,000 Miles and still running

by Sk8bmxchic from Pittsburgh PA on June 15, 2018

I purchased my 2004 Lancer Sportback Ralliart wagon brand new with less then 25 miles on it. I was in the market for a black car with black interior and this was a winner for me. I have been traveling the country for 13 years and have never had any issues with my car. Change the oil and rotate the tires. Car is still stock with original engine and transmission. Perfect ride for a girl on the road with her bikes and dogs.
