Mitsubishi Lancer 2000: How do I know if my car is sub model or performance?

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Oct 2019

It will be one of the following: ES, LS, Exceed, VR-X, or Evo. It’s unlikely that it will be a VR-X or an Evo, which are the performance models. It should have badges on it to identify it as an ES, LS, or Exceed. If not check the id plate. To find the location of the plate refer to your owner’s manual.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2000: Does the spare tyre deteriorate with age?

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Dec 2008

TYRES do deteriorate with age, but I wouldn't expect yours to have deteriorated to the point it's not suitable for use. It has been stowed in the boot out of the light, so there will be minimal deterioration.

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Aug 2006

THE belt deteriorates with age as well as kilometres. I would recommend you have it changed. The potential consequences of not doing it far outweigh the saving from not doing it.
