Long Term Lancer Reliability

I want awd but still want the drive style of a sedan, I like the style, and frankly, to save money. I would be in the market for a 2013+ Lancer GTS awc with the 2.4.

People sh*t massively on Mitsu everyday for not innovating, but for me that is neither here nor there as I like the Lancer for its price point.

I can't seem to find many forums and actual long term user reviews so what do you any of you owners have to say about long term reliability of these? I heard Mitsu has an engine failure rate higher than other manufacturers?

Just do what I have done. Drive 50 miles home, tear the whole thing to pieces. And then 6 years later it’s still in bits. It’s the most reliable car I’ve owned.

At 0 MPG it ranks among the worst.

6 years and still the same tank of fuel though. That's superb value for money.

You'd be better off buying an Evo....the extra it costs you in Petrol and servicing, you would more than make up for in depreciation of the newer car vs probable appreciation of an Evo. Add to this the extra smiles per day the Evo would bring, and the fact, that now you own an Evo, you are now a more interesting person....for good reasons from some people and bad ones from others.
