Thats right I just test drove the new 2002 Lancer. It's not to bad except for a few things. Like there isn't going to be a turbo version for the us. Nor will they have a 4wd version. But the good news is that they use the same motor from the older eclipse the turbo motor except this has no turbo. This makes me believe that you could make this car very fast with a little tunning due to the fact that there are so many parts for the older eclipses. The new lancer is going to replace the four door mirage. Looks and stling are nice, interior is nice kind of plain but nice. Have a look of the Lexus up front. Standards might have trouble getting one. They are worth a drive and look at anyway.

I asked at the Mitsu dealershit if they were considering bringing the Evo's over. They said "why? There's no market for it in the US. Amereicans want good ride quality and good gas mileage."<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> WTF?? The sport compact segment must be a lot smaller than i think. Or Mitsubishi is on crack. I told him that if they had brought the Evo they would have prolly had another customer. He just walked away.<img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

That is what the guy told me. That the would never bring a turbo anything or again. Because people didn't take care of them so no more turbos.

I agree if they would have brought the evo over they could have competed, but they aren't so they are going to lose in that market. Oh well.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
