The Review

having owned a lancer glx for 4 years, i think i know the car pretty well.... when i bought mine, the COE was about 21k so the final purchase price was 59,999.... even the made-in-thailand competition is more expensive... i took the basic package as i dun quite fancy the bodykit and spoiler... do u know that a spoiler increases aerodynamic drag which will in turn affect the fuel consumption?? so if u wish for a better fuel mileage, ditch the big spoiler!! before i booked mine, i'd many chances to drive around in my friend's.... what i like about the lancer is the reasonably good looks and decent handling... grip is adequate and gives the driver confidence to tackle the corners swiftly without worry... for easier reading, here are some of my comments in point form: boot - big enough for weekend shopping and golf bags engine - low-tech SOHC but can still run if u rev hard enough steering wheel - too large and i changed mine to an OMP gear knob - feels cheap and uncomfortable so i changed mine to a momo reliability was excellent - no problem at all for 4 years gearbox - smooth and slick clutch - soft (easier for ladies or older folks) noise - insulation is not that good, especially at higher speeds stability - very good spaciousness - able to seat 5 adults (those with longer legs will suffer if they are in the backseats) radio/stereo - the speakers provided are "terrible", i had them changed in no time paintwork - was still in a good condition after 4 years.. suspension - a little soft but was tuned for comfort rather than handling; i changed mine to aftermarket coilovers and the handling became very good brakes - was only adequate; have to stomp hard ok i think that's more or less what i think of this car...

Strengths

very affordable and yet is made in japan slick shifting manual gearbox seats 5 reasonably handling is not bad

The Review

This review is for 1.6L - Class. For the package and stuff you get from... Made in Japan (Japanese tested quality and reliability) Performance Handling Ride comfort I would say this car is definitely one of the BEST buy in this 1.6L class. For less than 46K, can you get a car with 12KM/L FC and comparable performance. Maybe yes... but 1 or 2 ??? Wait... let me add... Combine that with GOOD.. I mean REALLY SPACIOUS rear passenger space and big boot. What is there to ask for ? In the economic crisis like this, I say play it smart. Save your dollars and get this car. Besides, it looks really good, a rather handsome sporty sedan. Just add a 15" - 17" rims, and you are good to go ! Also... this car has bare bare features.. Less features = Reliability from simple stuffs, because less stuff to break down Conclusion -> One of the best, or not... THE BEST buy in the 1.6L class.

Strengths

Price Reliability Power FC

Weaknesses

Services from agent Sound insulation

The Review

Respectable reputation from it's elder brother, the Lancer Evolution. This entry-level family sports sedan is quite a disappointment after the years of moderate sales volume. However, there is a change after the launch of this generation of Lancer. This generation of Lancer has better looks, better handling and best of course still has it's torquey engine. It sounds better too. First look at it tells me that it is built to have sports apparel. After I got in, I can feel that nothing much has been done in it's interior. It has a outdated instrument panel, stiff-looking steering wheel and not-so-comfortable seats. But, the large head-room and seats width cools me off, especially for my large-built. Created by a sport-inspired car-maker, the engine does roar when the engine starts to prove. Acceleration is poor on it's first gear, but more responsive from second gear onwards. It turns like a fly because of it's well built steering equipments and long car wheelbase. Gear change is a breeze with it's nimble gear box and marshmallow clutch. After driving for sometime, I started to realise that I am in great control of the vehicle all the time. But the bad thing is that, I started to feel lethargic after long-hours of driving throughout the roads in Singapore. Its seats are tough and doesn't give much comfort to the driver, as well as, the passengers. The poor sound insulation makes driving a little irritating, but the encouraging engine notes surfaces it. Overall, I feel that for it's price, it is a great car to buy if you are looking for a affordable sporty family car to drive around town. I love driving it, but can't wait for the new generations of the Mitsubishi Lancer series.

Strengths

Affordable pricing Good pick-up Engine notes Great handling Spacious Great exterior looks

Weaknesses

High maintenance cost Old engine technology Poor sound insulation Poor interior plastics
