It is very reliable and cheap to use car. Little maintenance.

The vehicle is not very comfortable but it is reliable, safe. It is cheap to use. The vehicle is very easy to operate. The heating system is very efficient. The cooling is very pleasant. It has a radio with CD player. The CD player has some issues. It does not have the top sound quality but it is simple to use. It would be good if the car would be electric. It thing that the gasoline engine will be replaced with engine using electricity only. In that case, the vehicle would create zero pollutants. Also, the smog check would not exist anymore. In general, the car is simple to operate. It is very convenient car to use inside the city to do simple errands like shopping. The trunk is large so it fits luggage, wheelchair, or bags of sand and soil. The interior of the car has nice water bottles holders not only for the front but also for the back seats. The bad thing is that the car does not provide more support for arms. The car is good to be used in the dry and wet weather. It provides very good stability in the heavy rain. The car has the best feature. If you need to locate it and push the button it honks. There is always stress in life and people need to locate the car fast.

Mitsubishi lancer, more than an econobox.

Reliable, steady transportation. A little basic, to be sure, but it wasn't designed or priced to be a top of the line vehicle. Previously owned a Ford Focus, and the lancer is a much nicer car overall. Better finish, power, and overall styling. Definitely does not have the feel of an econobox. Fun to drive, and although it is fifteen years old, the design still looks fresh. Interior is comfortable and spacious for its class. More legroom than the Focus, and ample trunk space. Gauges are basic, but at least it has a tachometer. Gas mileage is decent. 28 in city driving, 35 in mixed city/highway. Only thing I have had to replace is the serpentine belt; not bad for a car with 130, 000 miles. Would definitely purchase a Mitsubishi again.

Lancer Evolution is an awesome car to own and drive!

It's a lancer Evolution 8. Performance is outstanding. Recaro seats are very comfortable for me. Never had any major problems that aren't related to normal wear on a vehicle. I've had to replace the clutch, ball joints, wheel bearings, CV boots, and a few sensors. But all normal things on a 15 year old car with almost 200,000 miles on it. I love my car and will keep it and drive it till one of dies.
