Mitsubishi Lancer Problems
No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Mitsubishi Lancer reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
Mitsubishi Lancer 1996: How can I get parts for it?
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?
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.

Mitsubishi Lancer 2004: What is a fair valuation?
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.
