man, I am not a tuner and I'm glad I'm not a tuner and a modder. I prefer buying a beautiful car like my 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS...with CVT auto and Rally Red, RF 650-watt stereo and sunroof. I like to put some fine vintage Foghat on the platter and just rock out in glee, knowing my Mitsu is covered by that great Finbarr O'Neill-inspired 10 year, 100,000 mile powertrain and 5 year and 60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper Mitsubishi Warranty.
I like driving regular style, not driving to drive myself and everyone else nuts, as the tuners do on the freeways and even straightaway stretches of pavement...ala 'The Fast and the Furious' crowd of modders and tuners. Yikes. It sounds like nothing but a gargantuan headache, frought with money spills, trouble with the law and potential injuries and even deaths.
Enjoy your EVO X, stevensoriano, and know that it has built in to it Mitsubishi's heralded racing heritage. Chime in as you go along in your EVO X driving and ownership experience, OK?
I just prefer to enjoy my Lancer GTS and it's nice looks and build...and I don't feel the need to beat someone off the line, or through the ovals or twisties, that's all.

Thanks alot for that information. Very helpful and I appreciate it alot. I never owned a turbo awd vehicle so I want to make sure I go about this right way before jumping in buying this thing. So is it true about the warranty? Instead of 100K its now 36k? Well for a guy who is so knowledgeable about this beast and you went for the GSR and happy with the car, sounds like I might consider it. But the 1000 miles break in period is a killer, I know I am going to be tempted. Thanks again.

Before you go out and pay MSRP for a EVO X South Coast Mitsuhishi they have them marked at least 2k below sticker with $500 discount if currently own a Mitsubish, $500 discount for a recent college grad, and $500 discount if your in the military. You can qualify for all three.
#72 of 80 Evo X.. or Ralliart?
Mar 01, 2008 (7:53 pm)
Congrats to all who bought the Evo. As for me, I still have 3.5 yrs with my Outlander loan. By the time I'm done with it, I am prediciting the Lancer Ralliart hatch is already here by then, and of course the 4 door Ralliart would have already seen some minor changes. Depending on the budget (and my inner drive to work extra hours to get my toy car) I might end up buying the X too. Meanwhile, I'll be here looking at the pics wishing I had one. SST looks very promising, and Mitsu plans to put it into more of their future products. Any feedback from those who bought the X MR? My Outlander's 6 speed auto seems to shift fast already with the paddle shifters, so the SST must be the closest thing we can get to a rally car transmission for a vehicle at this price point.

Unless you have an 08 Evo, it wouldn't be relevent.

Well it's up to you, of course, but this is the discussion that those who have 08 Evos will be reading.

Has anyone had any issues with the new EVO X?
#78 of 80 WHY does everyone keep sayin that the EVO X has a 10yr 100,000mile warranty
Mar 12, 2008 (1:00 pm)
The EVO X comes with 5yr/100,000 mile powertrain - 3yr/36,000 mile bumper to bumper - 7yr/100,000 mile anti-corrosion/perforation - 5yr/unlimited mile roadside assistance. This is the only warranty it comes with unless you upgrade it with a finance company. their other vehicles come with 10yr/100,000 mile warranty and such. this gets me frustrated that people post the wrong information. Why not get your facts straight before stating informationd on something that everyone reads.
