08 lancer gts

considering the 32k price tag... the 06 EVO IX is out of the question... so I'm thinking of going for the next best thing. I read a few reviews, but I want input from real people.

I'll have to trade in my focus soon, and i wanted a small SUV, but the lancer is NICE!!!!!
anyone test driven one yet??

a 06 evo is 32k? Seems alittle expesnive...maybe the brand new 08 Evo X is that much. The new lancer looks pretty good, but I think you can buy a used evo for way less then 32k.

ha... my local Mitsu dealer has sold out of the GTS model for the '08 year already! they won't have any till the end of '08, and then they'll be '09 model year's. the dealer had a 'slightly used' one with the slushbox and paddle-shifters...

IMO, I wouldn't consider ever when it comes to a decision on a mitsubishi product of any kind.

Lancer plus the Lancer EVO are just the most terriblist looking cars on the road. Of it would of been a comparison to a Pontiac Aztek on a scale of 1 to 10 the catagory would be 8.

Car company's are just not like it use to be anymore. Dealership are starting to get stupider, Mechanic are just as lost with the technology that they put in there own cars, And everything is just running a muck everywhere.

Keep your ears perked because there's a Lancer variant coming to compete with the WRX.

Yeah, there is a Lancer GSR model, which is basically an EVO minus some of the fancy features and a bit less power. Also is supposed to be priced around the same as the '08 WRX, which is still overpriced at 27500 for a well equipped model.

seems nice, but at 22k i'm already pushing it. and since I see an intercooler on that one... i'm asuming that one's even more expensive.
