...I bought my 2009 Lancer GTS in July 2009, it was running good until it reaches 39700K miles and my clutch just gave up.
...I wish that Edmunds would have been fair on the review of the Lancer GT Sportback.
...Can't beat the 5 year warranty. We were comparing the Hyundai Elantra and the Lancer. Same warranty; but couldn't beat the price. We got a lot more extras with the Lancer for a cheaper price. Couldn't believe it.Absolutely love the car. I can honestly say that it is fun to drive. Never thought I would say that about a car before but there it is. We got the alloy wheel package, the sunroof package and the audio package. Awesome sound!!!!Sporty look inside and out. Would highly recommend this car.Lots of room in the back seat for kids. Trunk is bigger than in looks."...

Handling and suspension is above average: light and neutral with quick turn-in. Understeer can be dangerous when entering corners too fast. Fuel economy is average, combined 30mpg +/-2...
...We have owned the Lancer since it was new and it has been a fantastic car.
..."Over all really good car . Fuel consumption outstanding . Maintenance cost monthly $30 . Really good car for city ."...
