    The car does everything well! Just dont think you have an EVO! This is a great car, it handles great and is very fun!

  • Love my lancer 2 - 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer

    After 25,000 miles I had to update my review of my 2006 Lancer SE. Still love it! After reading reviews of Honda Fit and Kia Rio5 (by the way my first choices), reviews cite poor mileage (well below EPA estimates), and some quality issues with the Kia. My Lancer is still running strong, Ive done nothing but regular maintenance, and even though I was originally disappointed with the mileage, after further research it looks good (above average). My Mitsubishi has been very reliable

    This is a great car. It has great handling. It is one of the most fun vehicles to drive in this price class. Just remember its not an EVO! It does everything well!

    Ive had my Lancer for 9 months now and love it more and more everyday! The only thing I could think to change is that the car could use a 6th gear for highway driving. My MPG is on average around 28 MPG, and that being equal city and highway driving. The only other flaw I could think of is to place the interior light closer to the back seats, because at night there is absolutely no light back there when needed.

    This car is a perfect daily driver. Fuel consumption is actually fairly decent, I average 26-33 mpg. Its a perfectly comfortable drive, even with 4 people in the car. Although somewhat boring (its just THAT easy to drive--almost drives itself!), I still like my little Lancer. I havent had a single problem.

  • A little car that can - 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer

    I am really a Supra owner, but she has died, so this is what I purchased, brand new, while I rebuild the other car. And let me tell you, I am most impressed. It has a very spacious and comfy cabin. It has a well thought out design and lay out to the controls controls and dash. The stock stereo is not bad at all for being stock. In all there is a fairly organic feel to the cabin. The rear is very spacious. My kids dig it. The trunk space is decent. It handles like a charm. We just received a huge snowfall, and its handling was very quick and precise and though I really was wishing for AWD, I have to say that the FWD did its job well. It has great perk on the highway and drives very well. In all this is a great little car. I highly approve.

  • Exactly What I was Looking for - 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer

    The 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart is exactly what I was looking for. It looks sporty and moves well. For the price, it is more than expected.

  • Excellent Choice! - 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer

    I love Mitsubishi cars. My previous car was a 98 Mirage (original owner). I had that car for 9 years and 135k miles and never left me stranded. Awesome little car. I traded in for a new Lancer SE and I couldnt be happier. The Lancer SE has everything i could ask for. The car is so comfortable. Engine is quiet and refined. Fuel economy is good for the class. Fit and finish is excellent. Stereo sounds great. Sun roof and power everything seals the deal for me! I highly recommend the Lancer to anybody looking for a compact car with lots of room and excellent reliability.

  • Amazing - 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer

    I used to have a 2003 oz rally and I decided to change it for 2006 ralliart. I completely fell in love with this car when I test drove it. I bought it with low profile wide tires and it is incredible how I could turn corners at high speed. The acceleration is pretty good. I got it up to 220km/h without any problems. If you are looking for a fun to drive or a useful car dont look anywhere else the 2006 ralliart has what you need.

    I think that the Mitsubishi Lancer is definitely one of the most underrated cars on the market. It is a lively performer. Its looks are a bit different as well, which sets it apart from the others vehicles.
