In-depth reviews

Mitsubishi Lancer owner reviews

"Aggressive looks don't match up with the Lancer Sportback's bland performance. On the plus-side, it's practical and cheap to buy."

After only owning the car for 6 weeks the awd alarm light came on apparently it is a similar problem to anti yaw control in evo. Pump dies after about 3 years (just as the warranty runs out) luckily I bought extended before hand. Very expensive job Ł3500 approx

Good value for money, if it had a bit less road noise it would be perfect.

Only had the car about 6 weeks and just out of manufactures warranty ran out and the ASR pump went Ł2500 Just for new part and Ł1000 specialist dealer labour costs Luckily I took out extended warranty at extra cost but deffinately worth it Part are expensive Changing from reverse to forward is rather slow on the uptake
