Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Combo NAV computer/HDD/Sirius sat radio
Cons: Engine power output w/ CVT tranny
Advice: Good buy for commuting, but don't expect to have a blast driving it.I owned the 04' Ralliart Lancer before, and traded it in for the 08' as soon as I saw it on the lot. The car is feature packed for the cost, as long as you get the GTS model with the NAV package. The technology keeps you occupied on long drives to work, while the comfort level keeps you happy when you get there. The only downside is that the CVT version of this car feels downright anemic when you step on the gas. It takes it's time to get moving, but once it gets up and running it hums along easily. Would recommend.
