Not a bad car but when I test drove one the CVT wasn't that impressive and was kind of annoying. Mitsu is in a trend of downsizing and probably wont continue with the EVO which is a bit of a blow to enthusiasts.

Sorry to hear you aren't a true car guy.


Enjoy the Mitsu. I'm not a huge fan of the current Lancer, but it should be fun with a few mods and having a warranty is nice. White is the best color ever.

I don't see a problem with it. The thread title clearly indicates the content within.

Perhaps the Duratec owners shouldn't post engine bay shots, since it's Mazda.

Nice try but Duratec engines are produced by Ford and used in Mazda's, Volvo, Tiger and other cars. But I shouldn't know that since I am not a car guy.

If you don't like it leave the thread be. You are entitled to your opinion but no need to keep coming back and fueling an argument for no reason. I have a Subaru and occasionally I post pictures of it here as well. It certainly isn't a Ford. I enjoy showing my car to people that I chat with on this forum that I do not see on a daily basis. I imagine that is what the OP is doing in this case...

Pretty sure the Duratec is a Mazda design, that's produced by Ford, and assembled in Mexico. Regardless, it isn't a 100% Ford product.

Anyway, start a new thread if you want to go on about this since we're a bit off topic.
