Bought new, Owned for 2 Years
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95, Mileage: 600 km/month
    - The look. Get a lot of people attention. Sometime they thought i buy evo haha
    - Its fully import
    - Adequate space in rear and boot
    - Keyless entry and start
    - 18 inch rim
    - sunroof
    - paddle shift
    - Engine is too noisy when accelarate. Accelaration is moderate maybe due to cvt. Not a fan of cvt, too sluggish and make car slower.
    - Tire noise is apparent.
    - Ride is a bit firm
    - Less comfort mybe due to firm suspension and low profile tyre 215/45/18
    - Rattling sound in the cabin
To Improve
Introduce smaller engine with turbo for high torque. Fit and finish should be improve. Improve noise insulation and give us manual variant please.
Yes, I would recommend this car

    Best Value for money 2 litre car. CBU. Good built quality. Spacious. 18 in rim. Good handling. Big boot.
    CVT a bit slugish despite engine reving hard. Sound proofing a bit thin. Engine sounds a bit loud.
    Tyre noise.
To Improve
CVT gear change. Engine noise. Less noise tyres. Keyless entry. GPS.

2.0 GTE (2011)
Bought new, Owned for 3 Years
Fuel Economy: 7.0 km/litre (14.3 L/100 km), RON97, Mileage: 3,000 km/month
    It looks very handsome once washed and polished and waxed. Still an eye turner and I still love it for its looks. I like the 18 inch rims and that the seats are leather with premium feel. I like that its fully imported.
    I have the first batch of the car, in black. Like all dark colored paint, it is particularly prone to water marks and dust, prints and hairline scratches. It feels heavy, although this can be a good thing during sudden sharp corners, while inertia works it way to the brakes. The other thing is being the noise when you drive. It is very loud compared to other makes and models. I mean VERY. Thirdly, the boot doesnt close gently, instead it makes a big BANG noise if you do not gently let it down (like a frustrated ex) ... which only the owner and or immediate family will know, after spending considerable amount of time with it. No GPS, No reverse camera, those bug me the most.

I have seen the latest 2014 reincarnation during service at their Balakong centre. All pretty, all good. GPS is there, reverse camera is there, power sun roof is welcome. Service could do some improving though ( And Im a very tolerant person).

2.0 GTE (2006)
Bought new, Owned for 8 Years
Fuel Economy: 10.0 km/litre (10.0 L/100 km), RON95
    I bought mine during it's first launch back in 2007.
    Price was reasonable for a CBU model
    Since it was a GT version, it looks sporty and occasionally making people think that I bought a Lancer Evo X.
    It was spacious with good seats both front and back.
    Handling was pretty good given it's quite firm suspension.
    Grip level is good since it came with a sport biased tyres.
    All the dash buttons are easily within reach.
    Engine sound isn't inspiring at all likely due to it being paired to a CVT
    Interior build quality is actually below par given it's a CBU
    Locally upholstered leather trim is also below par (uneven stitching and leather scar)
    Sound insulation is quite minimal (took it for sound proofing and can see only minimal insulation)
To Improve
Improving the CVT programming would had make the driveability and engine sound better
Steering only adjustable for rake, if added reach would had been better.
The latest Lancer's leather upholstery has improved though dash quality still need to be worked on.
If only spare part prices from authorised service centres are lower (warranty has since been over but Inspira parts are my saviour).
Should at least come in 4 airbags and stability control
Yes, I would recommend this car
