Mitsubishi Lancer Saloon 1.6 Equippe 4d (2006/56) - Owner Review

A cavernous saloon boot, which, although not my preferred body style has not proved a hinderance. I can get a 3 metre inflatable boat and outboard in the boot!

Buying experience

Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£5,000

January 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes. I was offered £2500 p/x for an 8 year old space star with 75,000 miles on the clock.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
My previous car was a Mitsubishi Space Star. I saw this at a local dealer and when I enquired I was impressed by the part exhange deal I was offered the my old car against this 3 year old Lancer.

Friendly and helpful.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It corners extremely well and is happy cruising on the motorway as you would expect of a small family saloon.

What's it like to park?
Rear visibility is poor if you have the bonus third passenger headrest in place. As I rarely carry more than one passenger, I keep it in the boot mostly. The unnecessary spoiler hinders rearward visibility somewhat.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing major. A couple of squeaky panels provide intermittent annoyance.

What's most practical about your car?
A cavernous saloon boot, which, although not my preferred body style has not proved a hinderance. I can get a 3 metre inflatable boat and outboard in the boot!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Front Foglights, air con and alloys are a suprise on car of this price.
