looking at buying

Postby waxedmerkin » Sat Jul 07, 2018 9:38 pm

Im just window shopping at the moment, and just wondering about general issues, and other things to look for when buying.

Whilst i can drive a manual it will be a daily driver, and with my back issues it will need to be a auto

Only things I’d say are an issue with the lancers are generally thin paint, so rocks and chips easily damage paint other then that these cars are pretty bullet proof.. the only thing I’d say about the auto is it’s a little slow on launch and has acceleration lag(sorta) other then that it’s a comfortable transmission and the car it’s self is like I sai pretty bulletproof, good engines and tranny!

"Slow on launch and has acceleration lag" i Easily overcome Just stick an RA snorkel on and enjoy a pleasant surprise.
The existing snorkel is that restrictive. Oh and while not essential opening up the front panel in front of the snorkel
is worth doing there is a heap of info in the forums here. New $175 and it pops straight on. and is better then
many of the pod filters :D

I’m glad it was solved for you! I’ve got an RA snorkel and although it improved it was far from fixed versus a manuals snappiness :( I fear that’s just how CVTs are
