Pearce tells us all about his 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer.
Alright, I admit it. I am not the world’s greatest car aficionado!
I was looking for a small sedan that was reasonably priced and we’ve had quite a few Mitsubishi cars in our family. In fact, the vast majority of my early years was spent getting about in a Mitsubishi Sigma station wagon.
So it made sense to follow in my dad’s footsteps and buy a Mitsubishi.
The good bits I can report about the Mitsubishi Lancer is that it has been a reliable car for the past six years. Aside from needing brake pad and tyre replacements, the only thing that you would say that has ‘gone wrong’ is that the battery died in it about 6 months ago.
I got the Lancer serviced at my Mitsubishi dealership for the first three years, after that though it just didn’t seem worth spending the extra. My local mechanic seems to do a good job and his pricing is reasonable.
The rest of the Lancer ownership experience has been pretty unremarkable. It’s dull as dishwater and lacks many of the features that newer cars come with, I think it would be handy to have a reverse camera next time around. What I can say though is that I’m always confident when I turn the key that it will start and it will get me where I need to go, after all, isn’t that the whole point of a vehicle?
I would buy another Mitsubishi on the basis that this has been a reliable and dependable car. I don’t know though if I would go for another Lancer, the 2016 one looks the same as mine! I’m thinking of maybe getting something a bit bigger next time around, maybe a Ford Mondeo or Toyota Camry.
Thanks for your great review, Pearce! We hear good things about Mitsubishi Lancer reliability and are glad to hear that you have also had a good experience.
