My brother in law works at Jiffy Lube. He recommended that I do not buy a Mitsubishi Lancer because they leak oil everywhere with only a few thousand miles on them. Told me he has seen a couple come in leaking from the oil pan and valve cover on there first oil change, with only 5k. This is the Lancer without the EVO, but they are basically the same motor I would assume.
A friend of mine works at Carmax where they are a Mitsubishi dealer. He told me that Mitsubishi in general has screwed so many people on warrantee work that he would not recommend buying a Mitsubishi. He is a mechanic there and for many years. I asked him because I wanted to know if he would get a kickback when I told them he referred me. Carmax had one on there lot for $29,950 with a sunroof. Gone now!
