"This car is very reliable. Very nice gas milege. For 2 years I have owned, not one mechanical problem. Just change the oil and go. For it's size, also very comfortable ride too. Amazingly fast if you need to speed up to change the lane and get away from the driver that you feel is not safe."

"The Lancer is unquestionably reliable and efficient. Power and acceleration are acceptable if not spectacular. The car is especially forgiving to people who tend to not make it to the oil change place every 3000 miles. Interior is functional, trunk is well sized for this small car. Car exceeded 170K miles before needing significant work."

"This has been a great and reliable car! Its sporty, (cute) and spacious. This car had made 6 round trips from Ohio to Missouri, 1,068 miles per round trip, in one year. We had the car loaded to the brim with cargo. We never had any problems. That being said (mechanically sound) the seats are awful for long trips, this car is the worst in the snow and in our case sporty wasn't the best choice. It is not a rugged car by any means. You feel every bump and the road noise is loud, especially on an 8+ hour road trip. Love the wagon but my next one will be AWD and rugged!"

"Bought the Evo brand new in 2003 and have been enjoying every mile traveled to date. It's reliable, (in 11 years, replaced tires, PCV and battery only)it's quick, nimble, stops on a dime, outmaneuvers and outruns everything in it's price range. An extremely fun car!!! Love It!"

"Very good/reliable car! it was my first vehicle and I still own it today! comfortable and easy on gas which is very good for teen. The only bad thing is it is a very lightweight car in the rain. Other than that it is perfect!"
