Why the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer?

Exterior styling

Best looking econobox of its class. Aggresive face, even on the base model.

Reliability & durability

Has run flawlessly so far in the 15,000km of ownership. Servicing costs are minimal, 15,000km service interval. Use of timing chain, means no expensive timing belt changes.

Safety & braking

Optioned with all 7 airbags, stability control as standard. Large mirrors help with visibility.

Discounts & incentives

Got a cracking deal in december 2008 during the depth of the GFC.

Why Not the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer?


Road noise and vibrations especially on rough surfaces. More sound dampening required. Will look at doing this using aftermarket products.

Audio & nav systems

Unflattering sound from the basic 1 disc/4 speaker system.

Cargo capacity

Boot is smallish, as I now have a full size spare fitted in the boot, the floor is raised and have lost even more boot space.
