You are in the Mitsubishi Lancer
What is this discussion about?
Mitsubishi Lancer, Automotive News, Sedan

is it in Electric Blue? If so, it sounds as if you've found your 2008 Lancer!
Where are you at in Washington state? Those are my old stomping grounds. I was born in Seattle, grew up in Edmonds and moved from Burlington, WA, in May of 2003 to begin training in Missouri for a new career in the Allied Health field. Now we're in the desert of SE Arizona.
I do really appreciate my Lancer GTS' solid air conditioning for this area. And the sunroof, though, around here the sunroof usually gets opened up at night, because the searing heat of the daytime sun is too much for our noggins.
Two weeks doesn't seem too long to wait for your Lancer, either. I'd say that if the price is enough to your liking that you made off like a new Mitsubishi fan with your new '08 Lancer ES! Get ready to rock, too, because the stereo is great in this car. Never has it let us down in our pursuit to rock.

coming from a 06 civic EX, the AC rocks in the Lancer and it having Auto.......Priceless

I'll second that emotion about the '08 Lancer's A/C. It has done a wonderful job keeping us cool in the Arizona desert. I mean, this test of air conditioning is probably the best test one can give to their Lancer's air conditioning. I agree, it's superlative and on Auto it's coverage and ease is flawless. Just like the entire 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS!

Hello, I'm gonna be purchasing a lancer gts here pretty soon, and I was wondering if anyone had any problems with theirs?
Also which color do you think is best? I can't freakin decide which color to get. Blue vs. Black.
I can get a black Gts right now at my local dealer, but have to wait till Sept 1st for the blue. And whats the navigation like? And what's the deal with the bad fuel efficiency?

Hello, this is in response to the previous post... Color wise you'll have to pick which one you think is best. Personally I just sold my old car (which was black) and while it looked very good when clean or in the rain, I've fount that black is the hardest color to keep clean. So I'm going with the Blue. It's a nice dark blue which I think looks great and I hope will keep somewhat cleaner then Black.
The MPG is done with the new 2008 rating system. If you look in mitusibhi's documents it mentions that under the old MPG system the car would rate 25 city and 31 highway.
All 2008 models are going to take a hit on fuel efficency, it's just that most manufacturer's don't have 2008 models available yet.
Hope that helps

To help answer some of your questions lancergts...
1) Reliability/Problems: If you look back through the last 10 post or so, you will read that someone else posted the same question. So far, no owners who have posted here have had any problem what so ever.
2) Black vs. Blue: The color is ultimately your choice. I would recommend blue also because I know that Black is a b**** to keep clean as well as to keep immaculate because of possible road debris hitting a car that normally happens over the ownership of the car.
3) Navigation: When I test drove a Lancer GTS, I tried the Navigation out. It is pretty impressive. Also, with the 30 GB hard drive, there is limitless space to update and expand the map over the years of ownership. I work at Best Buy, so I know some of the main GPS units out there. This one I would consider to be on par with some of the basic Magellan, Garmin, or Tom Tom units.
4) MPG Rating: As it has been said, the MPG ratings seem a bit off because of the new system that will be implemented on all cars to give a more accurate measure of true life. Again, if you look back through some of the post earlier in this forum, I want to say somewhere around page 7 to 10, you will see some current owners posting what they are getting and it is a little better for the most part than what the MPG rating is.
