Reliable and fun car for low price! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/26/2011. Trim: 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES, Owned 3 years.
Pros: We bought our Lancer ES used (2nd owners) 3 years ago and have been very pleased since then. Very reliable car and is easy to maintain (oil/filter changes, regular maint., etc). It's a pretty quiet ride compared to the 1997 Taurus we sold to get it. I'm not a big person (5'5, 120) so the seats are very comfortable and hold me well in a fast/sharp turn. It does not have ABS, but the brakes are still firm nonetheless. Accelaration is good after 2500rpm (as long as the AC is off). Pretty decent gas mileage, given the small tank size. Very stylish and sporty for the price.
Cons: Our ES does not have ABS which makes rain/snow a little tricky. If you turn the AC on during the summer, acceleration is greatly reduced - don't expect a quick response on the highway if you have to pass suddenly. Plastic wheel covers are easily dinged up, but everything else is very well made, IMO.
Overall review: A great, reliable, and reasonably sporty economy car for a really great price. The transferrable warranty covered a speaker replacement 1 year ago, but nothing else has been a problem. I will definitely keep driving Lancers from here.
