My lancer was given to us with the hubcaps zip tied to the wheels.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

I love my lancer. It's not as stylish as some other cars but it is incredibly reliable. Also since it's an older model. It's extremely cheap at local dealers. Unfortunately since it is an older model the radio Bluetooth function is outdated, and the ac is eh at best, and when it's hot outside it is like a sauna inside of the car, but in terms of functionality. I couldn't have asked for a better car.

2003 lancer and does it stand the test of time.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

An older model it is harder and harder to fix. It starts to rust and harder to find the parts. It use to be more of a reliable car when we first got it (I guess like any car) but once we hit a certain amount of mileage it became difficult. It needs constant repairs.

Reliable vehicle for those looking for a budget vehicle.

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

I haven't had any problems with this vehicle. It has been trouble free other than addressing scheduled maintenance. I have 125,000 miles and have replaced the shocks, tie rods, struts and timing belt and water pump. I would recommend this car to anyone.
