Mitsubishi lancer a car you can drive.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

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.

Lancer Review- 2009 Model Year

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Great car. Love to drive it everyday and has been reliable. Sometimes maintenance is an issue. With certain transmission fluids having to be replaced every 30 thousand miles. Good on gas and has decent pick up for a four cylinder engine. It's sad that Mitsubishi stopped making these cars. They are sporty and feel fun to drive, like a rally car.

Very durable, easy to upkeep, good gas mileage.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Very durable and comfortable drive. Gas mileage is really great. Road noise is a little bothersome but bearable. There is a lot of trunk space and a lot of back seat space. The panels on the door are kind of weird and they pop out at times and the clips that hold the pieces together break very easily, so watch out for that.

The title of my review is smokey the lancer.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

I have had transmission problems before when I first received it. The paint on it is ridiculous the hood has rusted and I was told to me that was a major issues with those cars. If I had known I may not have brought it. You would think it being a 2009 it would have a aux port it does not I looked everywhere for it.

Great value car with good gas mileage and built to last

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Easy to do it yourself maintenance. The car rides well and has required the most minimum maintenance of all our cars. We invested in a new car battery and have kept up to date with the oil changes. The car currently has 107,785 miles on it which has averaged to about 10,000 miles per year

- Oscar R

Great vehicle for average person to get to and from work.

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

It gets great gas mileage, and I have not had any major issues. One of the things I don't like is that it has very little power when it comes to going up hills. It handles very well otherwise, and has great turn radius. Love how efficient it is for day to day driving.
