#1
Fun and economic!
Source: Edmunds

...We just barely picked up our OZ and we love it. It is fun to drive, looks great, and gets great mileage!
The clutch is very nice and extremely easy (a plus for someone with bad knees).
It has lots of room inside, both front and rear and the rear is loaded with safety features built in for child seats!
This is by far the best deal in it's class. It's quick, very smooth and quiet, sporty handling, and an economical family car!
If you want a sporty car, you got it. If you want rally design, you got it. And if you want an economical car, you got it! All for a great price...

I like it

..."Just bought my 02 lancer oz a week ago. ALways loved the look to them.
The best thing about the car is the handleing, i love it.
Wish it was faster, but thats what aftermarket parts are for.
Comfort, it's alright, i have to get used to the seats, but everything else is fine. Cars at 102xxx miles now and runs fine. You won't be disapointed."...

Perfect Car

...I'm definitely a poor college student...but this car saves me some cash. It is totaly awesome. It only takes about $23 to fill up and it is so cute. People always wanna race me!...

Great car!
Source: Cars.com

..."This car is great... had it since it had around 90k miles.
It now has around 108k. The Transmission was giving
me trouble right when I had 100k but I put some transmission
fix/helper in it and it has fixed most of the problems.The car does run higher on RPMS now and burns more gas than I think it should be.Other than that this car is great!
It handles so well! I would reccomend this car if you can find it below 90k!"...

Fantastic car for the price

...I have owned two Lancers, the basic model and now an OZ, and I have to say I love this car.
There's nothing spectacular about it, but for the money I feel like I own a quality vehicle that will take care of me.
I also disagree that it's severely underpowered. Sure I'm not going to win any races, but it is faster than my friend's Ford Focus.
It gets gas good, mileage especially on the highway and generally is just a pleasure to drive.
Even a friend who owns an Audi said he was surprised at how well-put- together my little Japanese car seemed to be.
I would definitely...

Great Car, but no EVO

...The 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer O-Z Rally is an absolutely great and economic car to purchase, but do not expect high performance.
It's a little above average in handling and comfort, but without ABS, traction control, and more than 120 horsepower - it is lacking.
I love it and wish I was a mechanic because I would do an engine swap...

#9
Yellow Lancer

...I Love the car because it is yellow...

#10
Great Car no Go
Source: Edmunds

...I really love my car - Lancer OZ, but the engine is what it lacks.
I've added a Injen Cold Air Intake, MagnaFlow Cat-Back Exhaust, B & M Short Shifter, Denso Iridium Plugs, Carbon Fiber Dash Kit, and a huge stereo system.
I only wish it had 200 hp. Gotta recommend it though, grew up a Ford guy and switched to Japanese vehicles for better quality, less recalls, etc. No problems 3 years and 45,000 miles later...
