great mid-sized car! No major problems. My dogs like it!

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

I have had my car for 13 years and have had no major problems. A Lot of recalls that have been fixed immediately. It is a comfortable mid sized car that can seat 5 comfortable Has a lot of trunk space and the back seats fold down if you need more room in the trunk. It uses mid-grade fuel which is the only thing I don't like but is good on gas mileage. About 23 miles to the gallon.

Awesome car that lasts forever.

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

It is a super reliable. Has 270,000 miles on it and I've never had to replace the clutch. Really comfortable seats with plenty of legroom in the back seats. Huge trunk. I take it on long drives on windy mountain roads and have no problem and I also drive it through rush hour traffic. My favorite car I have ever had.

The worst car I ever loved.

2005 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Reliable, mechanically sound no major issues but it's the ugliest car ever. Driver's side door handle is held on with zip ties. Upholstery is shot. Great engine, tranny and brakes. Body is rusted. I love it. I hate it. But it still has a great cassette player so my dad's collection lives on.
