    The only problems I have are maintenance related:

    1. Timing belt, water pump, spark plugs replaced at 103K (part of 90K interval maintenance).
    2. Right brake light replaced.
    3. Rotors need to be replaced soon.

    These are all typical for a 100K+ car. Bought mine 1/2003.
    Other than that, I am getting good mileage.

    Highway- 33-35mpg
    City - 27-29 mpg

    I bought my new 2006 Lancer SE on May 07, few units unsold, i got heavy discounts. Car runs flawlessly. Very comfy. City im getting between 23 to 24mpg. HWY 34. Mileage now 6,105. Im extremely satisfied with my purchase and im proud to drive a car thats not another Civic/Corolla. :shades:
  • I have 12,300 miles on my 2006 Lancer SE, and I get very poor gas mileage. I get bad gas mileage on the Highway as well as in town driving. The car still has loud road noise when driving on highway. I don't know if it's the tires or a leaky seal around a window.

    I have a 02 Mitsubishi Lancer OZ Rally with 92000 miles. ive had it for a couple months and im not sure if there is a problem with the alignment or what. when i make tight turns my car makes a weird noise and it seems like is comes from the back of the car. ANY suggestions on what it might be
    Thanks

    Does anyone know if any of the dealerships have any EVO IX's left in stock or is it now just a used market?
    Subaru still has STi's and looks like a summer release on both the STi and EVO X, So I want a car before then.
    Any ideas?
  • Contact your local Mitsu dealer and request they check to see if there are any Evo IXs still available. That way, the dealer does all the hunting work for you.

    The problem is I'm still overseas and I'm just wondering if anyone has seen any that are new still on dealers lots?

    I haven't been to a Mitsu dealer in a very long time and in my area everyone seems to favor the Subaru's for RallyX as well as AutoX. Supposedly the Subaru's are more tunable. Also the US didn't get the AYC that the rest of the world got. We have to wait for the EVO X.

    when my wife and I were in the Avondale Mitsubishi(west Phoenix)showroom on March 21,2007 negotiating for our 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS I saw a 2006 Mitsubishi EVO IX for sale new. The price was cut down to $34,995 and I believe it was a 5-speed model. It was silver and it looked nice. I don't know if Mitsu is making 2007 EVO IX's while they bounce to production of the EVO X.

    Thanks at least I know that some might be available. :D
    I know that 2006 was the only model but I think for $35K it's the MR version that's the price according to the Mitsu website.
    The EVO IX was $32K The EVO MR with a 6 spd was listed as $36,924. The MR did come in Silver so it's very possible that it's an MR.
    Thanks, I really appreciate the info, my guess is it's a Silver MR. I think the new one will be a lot more sedate than the older model but we shall see. ;)

    yeah, probably was a EVO MR for 2006. I liked it enough to take a seat in the cabin for a few minutes. Looked intuitive for controls and the seat was comfortable. 6-speed sounds right and that price($36,924 priced down to $34,995)sounds right. Does anyone know which Jackie Chan movie he drives droves of Mitsubishi EVO's in? He had a contract with Mitsubishi to use Raliart's or EVO's in and I'd rent it if I knew which one...around 2004-2005 sometime...I'll find it and rent it.

    I like the seats in our '08 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS. I was noticing on a long Arizona road trip yesterday how nicely the Lancer GTS' buckets kept us in our seats-the side bolstering was primo and gently but firmly bounced you right back in to the center of your seat. Got to negotiate a lot of twisties yesterday going up to the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. Sweet!

    Thanks for the info on the MR, hopefully I can work a deal on something before I get to the US.
    I believe the EVO you refer to is this on on YouTube

    any word on the Mitsu MR yet? Are you still thinking of going that route? I have one of the salesman at my dealer's e-mail address on his business card. I can e-mail you with his e-mail address if you have any questions for him. Let me know in here-I can't post it in here as you know but would be happy to access your e-mail and give the address to you if you like. I mentioned that a Lancer purchased in southern Arizona might be a bit of a stretch for you. His response?!

    He said not if you get a great deal on one. Plus, after getting a great deal on one you can have a great little vacation trip driving it to where you live! I kid you not..salesmen will be salesmen.

    I'll tell you this...I e-mailed another salesman from that dealership about 50 times when thinking of buying a 2007 Suzuki SX4(they sell both Suzuki's and Mitsubishi's) and more seriously my '08 Lancer GTS. Very helpful person. Although I ended up buying from another dealer I do take my Lancer GTS there to his dealership for service. They're excellent for service-I scored on this one. No animosity about buying elsewhere...and he told me yes take it in here for service-and they've taken very good care of me and my '08 Lancer GTS. Just something for you to think about. I'd want to be there when you buy yours though in order to properly welcome you to S.Arizona and follow you in my Lancer GTS. I'd drive with you part of the way to start your journey back eastward. You did say eastern U.S., didn't you? If you saved enough money on the deal it might be worth it, eh?

    You see right now I am overseas, and waiting for my contract to be up and they have been playing games with me about it. It was originally 3 years but I opted for an extra year, but of course it's run over 4 years and is going to be 5 years pretty darn soon. Anyway I told them it's about time I go back to the US for a while and sort out things that I have to do there.
    So we have no idea when we are going to leave. I can't just quit so I have to play it out. My wife likes the EVO and it's on our list and yes, if I got a great deal on one that would make a difference. But I'd have to fly into Vegas and travel from there although a temporary plate and insurance will be an issue.
    Driving from Arizona is a haul but not bad really, about 2,800 miles depending on if you take the upper or lower route.
    Right now I am looking at December as the earliest and February as the latest (hopefully)
    for my email just add at Yahoo.com to my nick. :shades:
    Thanks for the help. Any chance the guy has a white one? That's my color of choice.

    Report of my Lancer at 22,000 miles. Still tight and rattle free. Gas mileage is averaging 25 mpg. Interior plastics and upholstery still like new. Got the 15k service done for $200.00. Only one repair was done and covered under warranty, the driver's side radio speaker got cracked around the cone and sounded distorted. Replaced and fixed in 30 minutes. Wiper blades replaced at 18,000 miles. Just bought the set of mudguards front and back for $101.00 Overall excellent vehicle and very happy with my investment. :blush:
  • I have a 2006 Lancer ES (Base) air/automatic. The car has 55,000 Km. Recently I've been putting Sunoco Ultra
    94 octane premium gas in it. I noticed right away the car seems to run smoother and quieter, also on the first tank I got an extra 50 or so km. I usually get 500km or so driving 70/30 Hwy/ City on 40 litres( the tank holds 50L) Last week I got 558km same 40 litres. Has anyone else
    been running Premium fuel ? Is it just a fluke or wishful thinking on my part that premium might be better for my car? I live in the Toronto Ont. Canada area and we have access to Sunoco 94, as I understand it, some areas of the U.S. do not. Any input from you guys/girls would be appreciated. Many Thanks, SuperMarkie ;)
  • can anyone tell me the bulb size in the rear turnsignal of a 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES
