Basically, the car if well taken care of should be no problems at all, .

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer DE

As far as I am concerned, since I have taken care of my car for so long I really have not experienced unfortunate issues, transmissions usually work fine. The only problem with this car is that insurance is quite expensive. For this car is best to check with your insurance agent. The lack of power with this car is probably high, but if you are looking for a car that can just move you around this would be a good car.

Mitsubishi Lancer sound system

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer DE

When it comes to mechanical reliability my lancer is top notch. Never had an issue. Unfortunately when it comes to the Rockford fosgate amplifier and subwoofer, I did experience quite a few. One being that I had to use Bluetooth which I believe caused both of them to blow.

Cheap work car, perfect for long drives

2008 Mitsubishi Lancer DE

It has plenty of power for everyday driving. It gets great fuel mileage, city and highway. Has plenty of room on the inside, seats are comfortable, everything is easily accessible. Trunk has a good amount of space. Perfect little car for driving back and forth to work.
