Great vehicle for a budget
The 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer ES is a good economy car that gets good mileage overall. It has good but not great off the starting line power. Highway merging is generally not a problem, and it could use some more responsiveness overall. It is comfortable and a good, fun ride. It has good room for a small car. I also enjoy the visibility out of the back windshield. For a budget, it works very well. The default stereo has some decent bass from the back and crisp highs. I would definitely recommend an upgrade for it if you are an audiophile. Airbags are good, and they underwent the standard recall maintenance for many airbags that year. Tires are standard size. Oil changes are mostly what you need, and there isn't too much more for maintenance so far. Also spent time polishing the headlamps as for any older model car. I've done mostly regular maintenance on the car, and it's kept up very well. I would keep this for a while longer and hope it hits 200,000 miles without any major problems. The ES trim is the base model and does very well for value.
One of the most reliable cars ever
This vehicle is a car you can trust. All that you need to do is fill it up with gas and go. I did the regular maintenance checks when it was suggested to do so, and besides that the car never asked for anything. I have driven this car for 10 years now and its still going strong. I have driven it for 75,000 miles, and everything sounds good and the power is still the same. I must admit that I treat the car softly and that I never put it under much stress, but it has certainly been the best car that I have owned. The MPG were okay, I usually did 26 MPG.
