2003 Mitsubishi EVO VIII...
Cons: Mitsubishi Customer ServiceGreat Acceleration,Brakes,Handling,Looks...Average Comfort,Build Quality,MPG. First year offered in the U.S. ... most driver-involved,mechanical model year.
Pros: recaro seats, overall styling
Cons: no cruise control
Advice: none needed. once you drive it ,its yours!!!!!!!!probably the nicest car for the price. that is if your looking for a race car. it has great style compared to the subaru wrx/sti . i test drove both and this one was slightly more but i found more responsive and comfortable
Cons: HARD TO RECLINE SEATS
Advice: YOU HAVE TO TEST DRIVEONE OF THE BEST VEHICLES I HAVE EVER DRIVEN GOOD AMOUNT OF BOOST AND A FAST CAR
Cons: No cruise control
Advice: Hurry upBest car available period. Awd, turbo, 4 doors and can take a Ferrari around a corner. I bought mine in Nov and already have 21k on the clock. My only problem is staying out of the boost long enough to get 26 miles per gallon!!!
Pros: AWD, turbocharged engine, speed, Recaro seats, great warranty, styling.
Cons: No security system, no cruise control, expensive tires, cheap radio.
Advice: Go straight for the MR edition, much better car than the standard or RS version.When the MR edition came out, I traded in my 03 Evo for one. The MR is so much better, the 6-speed, clutch, and driving experience is much more pleasant than my other Evo. The car is so fast, performs great, interior space is great, and I love the looks. Kids from high school give me thumbs up all the time when I drive by. The car however does need cruse control, and a security system. And watch for dealer markups on these cars. My opinion to you is to wait for the 06 Evo, it will be freshin up a bit. And if you can, wait for the 07 Evo which will be an all new model.
Pros: The Horses under the top
Cons: Its a big gas eater
Advice: Take this if you got 30k lying around somewhere.Great 4 wheel drive.
Cons: understears a bit
Advice: Buy this not the imprezaThe closest thing to a rally car you can buy. Forget about the impreza buy this! It looks great drives great and grips the road well.
