Evolution X...an amazing experience by ShallowWhits from Chicago on 06/12/2011. Trim: 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR, Owned 1 year.
3
Pros: Unique vehicle that has the peformance and handling of an expensive exotic but at a reasonable price. With the proper tires this car can handle all weather conditions and is really a blast to drive year round! For a performance car it's really amazing to have 4 doors and to have the ability to also seat 4 adults comfortably as well. 99% of those that buy this car will have modifications in mind and this car responds very well even with minimal mods!Track,Auto-X,Drag,or Daily Driving this car is made to handle any,and all needs that you have!! I personally like the no-nonsense interior and the Recaro seats as well. It's just a really FUN,amazing machine!!!!!
Cons: The paint quality is poor...for a car made to drive in all conditions it chips and scratches extremely bad!!! Mud flaps should come standard at the very least... MPG's are low and the gas tank is small so you'll be well known at your local gas stations in no time! The insurance rates on this car are insane and I have a perfect driving record!! Maintenance and general upkeep can be expensive especially if you have mods and you have no warranty anymore....There is very limited trunk space and the back seats do not fold down due to the battery and washer fluid being in the trunk. Doesn't really bother me but it should be known that the car does squeak,rattle, thump and make noise daily.
Overall review: Honestly it's just an incredible experience!!! Track monster,Auto-X,Drag, Daily commuter,etc....not many other vehicles can do the same and at this price. The fact that the car is pretty rare makes it even more appealing and it has almost an exotic feel to it. Most cars in the same price range (Mustang,Camaro,370Z,etc...) have there own advantages in performance but none are as complete and can be driven in any, and all conditions. The Subaru STI is the only other car that is similar in depth and between those two I prefer the Evolution but that's just personal opinion. It has it's quirks....ratlles,small trunk,fuel range,no nonsense interior, etc....but the pro's far outweigh the cons!! Personally I absolutely love the aggressive styling of the Evolution!! It looks like a killer robot and I wouldn't have it any other way!!!Overall... An Amazing Machine!!! There's really not anything else out there quite like it....Highly Recommended to any car enthusiast!!
