 Lancer EVO

The Evolution – or more affectionately called the "Evo" - is based on the Lancer compact sedan. The two cars don't have much in common beyond their body and interior design, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution was originally developed in the early 1990s to compete in the World Rally Championship racing series and abide by officially recognized model rules. However, whereas the regular Lancer is a rather mundane economy car - despite its sharp styling - the pumped-up, flared-up Evo is turbocharged, boisterous and ready to lay down some serious tracks on a racetrack.

With the powerful turbocharged engine and all-wheel drive, the Lancer Evolution quickly became a successful rally car. Despite its humble beginnings as an average economy car, the Evo can match all but the fastest production cars on the market in terms of acceleration and cornering skills.

Originally, the early road-going versions of the Evo were meant just for the Japanese home market. This targeted marketing didn't stop the car from developing a cult-like following around the world. For the 2003 model year, Mitsubishi started importing official road-going Lancer Evolutions to the North American market.

If you’re looking for a well-kept used Evo, you may be in for a long search but it will be worth the effort.  Clearly, buyers searching for a used Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution should wait for one that's been well cared for. The thing is, no one buys an Evo to drive it like the ‘little old lady from Pasadena’, but some owners are more fastidious than others.  For example, taking care about the engine break-in period (particularly important for this car), regular oil changes, maintenance and service are key. Once you find a well-maintained Evo with extensive records, you can start to enjoy the fun of the well developed power train and eager performance.

If you take care of your Evo, it will take care of you and you’ll have many years of road enjoyment. Evo owners tend to have a very strong relationships with their cars, even though they may drive harder, they are more conscientious maintainers.  That’s all about adhering to the car maintenance schedule, which involves checking (and potentially replacing) the inner working of your ride.

For some, this may appear to be a nuisance or time-consuming. But if you are very familiar and experienced with checking fluids, doing oil changes, and the like it is probably a second nature. If you’re not, you can just take your baby to an auto shop when the maintenance documents tell you it’s time for your Evo to get its check up.  Once you’ve established a good rapport with the dealer and/or mechanic, they can let you know when it’s time to check on and/or replace something.

If you’re someone who drives their vehicle hard and can include severe driving conditions, you might want to be extra careful with your maintenance and mechanic visits. Severe driving conditions can include driving on all kinds of rough and rough-ish ground surfaces: uneven, bumpy, sandy, muddy, salty; even using brakes excessively and half or your operating time is stop and go traffic, very hot weather driving, driving at a low speed constantly and having the car excessively idle, all conditions which can be detrimental to the engine.

Mitsubishi Mirage

Most people who are in the Mirage market are those who are still looking for the basic car that will get you from here to there WIth the Mirage, you can now get include 14-inch steel wheels, a rear spoiler, keyless entry, full power accessories, automatic climate control, a tilt-only steering wheel, 60/40-split-folding rear seats and a four-speaker sound system with a CD player and USB and auxiliary audio inputs as standard equipment! (DE trim).

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is a small, four-door, five-passenger hatchback offered in two trim levels: DE and ES. Standard features for the base Alloy wheels are a stand-alone option on the DE.

The only thing people seem to know about this car is that it’s super cute, totally affordable with outstanding MPG's. The other thing one notices, is the very poor professional reviews but extremely positive consumer reviews. A conundrum. Digging into the consumer reviews we see statements from true aficionados like:

“Everything that the professional reviewers say with the exception that it does feel "slightly" top heavy in highway speed turns as totally false.”

“This car is a blast! Did 70-75 mph all the way home, hardly touching the pedal and got 47.6 average mpg! It feels like a much bigger car and is way bigger than you think inside.”

“I love this car, I feel it is very well built a blast to drive and with the gas mileage, it's almost like driving for free! Mine is an ES model with CVT.”

Reviews are usually places where consumers unload their disappointments, not so for the Mirage! Most of the reviews contradict what expert reviewers have said!

 Mirage shoppers want a vehicle that lets them enjoy life on a budget, yet be comfortable and meet all their driving needs. Saving lots of money every time you travel, whether zipping to town or on a trip is a primary goal.  Thanks to a small turning circle and light-effort steering, the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is easy to maneuver in dense urban settings.  Low speed driving in cramped spaces is a joy!

The upper end ES model prices can get a bit higher and if you’re really looking for keeping your cash outlay or monthly as bare bones as possible, you could question yourself whether the extra cost on those models makes sense to you. They have all the basic same mechanics as the DE model with standard power windows locks and mirrors.  If you’re looking for a serious bargain, get yourself the DE Mirage.

The average transaction amount for a new car nowadays is somewhere north of $30,000, so if a person is spending less than half of that they can expect to leave a few things "on the table". This is not a fault with the car, but rather just personal choice.  If you want to have a $500 a month car payment, you can certainly do that with hundreds of options out there.

Most owners bragged of gas mileage way in excess of 40 MPG (the EPA-estimated amount) getting upwards of 48 MPG. Very impressive for a non-hybrid vehicle these days.

In the interior, all the essential controls are easily accessible and simple to use. Taller folks should find enough head-and legroom. The comfort level of the seats seem better on the ES model, as they are slightly softer with premium materials, and the drivers seat also adjusts up and down to conform to the drivers height. The interior is exceptionally roomy and close to that of many midsize cars of today.

Standard safety features for the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage include four-wheel antilock brakes (front discs, rear drums), front-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, and traction and stability control. Front and rear parking sensors are optional on both trim levels, while a rearview camera is optional only on the ES.

Available on CVT models, Sports Mode lets you experience the feel of racing by changing gears with a 6-step shift control that maintains the convenience of an automatic transmission. For even greater control, these paddle shifters are also built directly into the steering wheel making operation as easy as a single press of your finger.With CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the Lancer EX presents a new level of driving joy: a powerful automatic transmission that eliminates the harshness and power lag of traditional gear changes.

Incorporating front MacPherson struts and a rear multi-link system, the Lancer EX responds exactly as needed in any driving situation with an independent suspension that keeps all four wheels firmly on the ground for performance that’s as reliable as it is comfortable.

Lancer EX GT features a more substantial set of 18-inch tires for improved grip, cornering and overall performance. A cool set of lightweight alloy wheels add to sharp appearance.

The Lancer EX body has been reinforced at key points to resist torsion and to keep everything smooth when rounding curves or navigating a rough road.  Lancer EX can navigate you through tight squeezes, boasting a turning radius of just 5.0 meters.

The Sporty Lancer sedan provides a global standard of safety, interior environment and comfort performance.
