Mitsubishi Lancer 1996: How can I get parts for it?

Answered by CarsGuide 13 Apr 2018

It depends on which parts you want. You should be able to get most mechanical parts from outlets like Bursons, or you could go on line where you’ll find a number of parts suppliers. For body parts you would need to go to a wrecker.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2015: Why is it lacking power?

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2018

All you have is your gut feeling; you need to have something more concrete than that if you hope to make any progress with the dealer. They clearly haven’t been able to find anything wrong with it when they have checked it. I would start by checking the fuel consumption. Measure it; if it’s substantially higher than it should be (7.2 L/100 km average, 5.7 L/100 km country, 9.8 K/100 km city) then that tells you there is something wrong. Then I would find a flat section of road where you could safely measure your car’s 0-100 km acceleration time, which should be around 9.5 seconds. If it takes significantly longer than that it’s also an indicator that something is amiss. With that info you can decide for yourself if there is a problem or not, and if the numbers suggest there is you have something to show the dealer.

It sounds like the clear coat is peeling away, and that’s not unusual for cars around time. It’s a problem with the paint and the only fix is to repaint it.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2004: What is a fair valuation?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Oct 2017

It sounds like a nice car. The trade values it at $2500-$3900, but that’s with an odometer reading of 200,000-300,000 km. With such a low odometer reading yours should be worth more. I would suggest $4000-$5000 as a private sale.
