The Mitsubishi Lancer EX

The Lancer EX is a Japanese produced car that has been in production since the early 70's. The Lancer is a stylish sedan that touts its racing genes. The Lancer is a quality car that makes it ideal for resale. A used Lancer EX is an excellent option for those of you not wanting to spend retail on a Lancer EX. With many upgrades from generation to generation a used Lancer EX is tried and tested automobile. Whether you choose a used Lancer EX with an automatic transmission or you decide that a 5 speed manual is the better fit for you, you can rest assured you will be happy with any used Lancer you decide.
Engine use should be a consideration when choosing a used Lancer EX. In terms of miles a used Lancer will perform just as well, if not better, than any comparable Nissan, Toyota, or Honda. Lancers are meant to be driven, and while they look beautiful, they perform beautiful as well. With a used Lancer EX miles should be of little concern as they are meant to be driven for plenty of miles before even the most basic components need replacing. And if your used Lancer EX is well taken care with all of the scheduled maintenance you can rest assured your getting a quality car.
Body style is as important for some people as mileage and transmission. While you may want a two door coupe, a four door will perform equally to the coupe on any day. If you do choose a used Lancer EX this may just be a matter of preference, however, the coupe was usually left the Lancers predecessor the Mitsubishi Mirage. If you are looking for a used Lancer EX station wagon you may be out of luck, the Lancer Sport-back wagon stopped being produced in the United States shortly after it was introduced. So, as far as body style goes you may be lucky enough to find a used Lancer EX station wagon, but I wouldn't be my money on it. A used Lancer EX Sedan is probably more plentiful and you would probably have better luck locating one, as well as be in a much better position to bargain for a used Lancer EX sedan, that a wagon, or coupe.
