Well it's quite comfortable and durable with low cost and maintenance and use.

Well the car is very comfortable, drives fine and does not have any issues. I bought it from a dealer and I have used it for about 3 years now and it's still running just fine even with a high mileage on it. Gas wise its very cheap and fills the tank for about 30-35 dollars last well too. Lights and other car functions are still working fine since I bought it, I still get it checked every 3 months for engine and oil checks since it has a high mileage and since I usually drive on highways for long distances.

Mitsubishi lancer a car you can drive.

The 09 lancer is a very reliable vehicle, gets about 28 mpg and mine has a variable transmission which means it does not shift gears and that makes for smooth acceleration. The suspension is a little rough but mostly in the rear seats. While I have had a couple of recalls on certain parts, mostly it's been an acceptable ride and I would say it's a good car.

My vehicle is silver and not too big but not too small.

The car is good for the size but I wouldn't recommend if you have multiple kids. The technology in the vehicle is not the most advanced but it does well for it is job and has yet to let me down. I have had to replace the headlights and taillights of the car multiple times because they keep going out but other than that this car is very good.
