The exterior is stylish and holds it looks.

Great car no major problems gas saver handles good in snow and ice comfortable ride great stereo Audio system plenty of interior space for four passengers owned a galant before I like the service. Handles really well on different terrain and climate excellent gas mileage. The only thing that could make it with a smoother ride would be better shocks and suspension would be nice if it had more insulation to soundproof it more so otherwise I am happy with the performance.

That it is a safe vehicle with excellent handling.

I love that it is a four-wheel drive, an adequate size, it has comfortable seating, Bluetooth, it is turbo charged, with a responsive engine, and it has a sleek look. After having this car for six years, it has not given me any maintenance problems at all, in a way, it has been a loyal vehicle. My only complaints are that it does consume a significant amount of gasoline, and that the cabin can be quite noisy.

- Sarah L

My car does get good mileage per gallon.

I like that I have a USB port for listening to music. I like that I have ecoboost. I like that I have heated seats. I do not like that I do not have automatic lights, that I do not have power locks, that I do not have digital mileage where the miles are displayed in numbers not me guessing where I am and I do not like that my radio does not display what a song title or artist are.

The lancer has interesting features.

My car is reliable, since I have had it for 8 years now it really has not given me much problems or it does not shut down when I am driving far. When I am driving far the gas lasts a good while before I have to fill it up again. The seats are really comfortable to sit in.

It looks like a sports car but it is a four cylinder car.

I love how my car looks like a sports car but it is a four cylinder. The paint in car is expensive but it looks very nice in the sun. I also love that I can control the stereo through the steering wheel. I didn't like that I had to install the Bluetooth system.

- Karen H

The ralliart has aggressive lines.

No issues ac Bluetooth airbags back up sensors good choice and reliable it is never left me on the side of the road. I like the color option octane blue I have blue courtesy lights and led dome lights from the factory. Drives good I will be a repeat customer.

- Ronnie M

The Evo is know for there power and great handling.

Car is very reliable. Has great power with the turbocharger. Racing seats with heated option is a plus. AWD for winter keeps drivability great in the winter. Great space in the vehicle to fit 4 adults comfortably. In screen nav. system, auto climate control.

- Victor A

It's a vehicle that suits my personality well.

The Lancer is sporty and sleek yet having a but of space and compartment room. It gets better gas mileage than most sport sedans and handles very well. My only dislike would be the availability of parts and service when encountering maintenance problems.

- Jerran K

An interesting detail would be the flash drive capability that I have through a USB port in my glove box so that it is out of sight.

I like that I have USB capabilities as far as being able to listen to over 200 songs on a flash drive. I like that I have heated seats in the front. I wish though that I had automatic locks and lights and access to satellite radio.

If you want a great car for a great price, a Mitsubishi is the car for you.

I've always loved Mitsubishi cars. This is actually the 7th Mitsubishi I've driven. I like how they drive. I really like the way they look. The prices for a Mitsubishi are affordable. And they are quite dependable.
