Model Highlights

The 5-seat Lancer comes in a slew of variations for 2010, with a couple of different body styles, a couple of engines, and a couple of trim levels for each. At the heart of the car is a 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, except for the GTS. That model, in either sedan or Sportback trim, comes with an upgraded 2.4-liter inline four.

The base level Lancer DE and ES sedans have 152 hp on tap through a standard 5-speed transmission, though a CVT is an option. The DE comes with plenty of features, such as power windows, doors and mirrors, plus ABS, passenger and driver airbags, a knee airbag, and side-impact airbags. Some options on the DE are standard on the ES, such as air conditioning and keyless entry. The ES also has a 60/40 folding rear seat and 16-inch alloy wheels.

The GTS has the larger 2.4-liter engine and a lot of rally influence, making 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque on hand for a bit more zip. Sportier styling means fog lights, rear spoiler, sport-tuned suspension and huge 18-inch wheels. The Sportback adds active stability control, and all GTS models have unibody construction designed to absorb energy in case of an impact. The Sportback's designers kept functionality in mind as much as sportiness, and gave it a cargo floor that can be lowered three inches for more space and a rear door that extends all the way to the bumper for loading heavy or cumbersome gear.

The Ralliart also comes as a sedan or Sportback, with only a 6-speed manual transmission and all-wheel drive. Its 2.0-liter engine is turbocharged, for a big jump up to 237 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque -- enough to propel it from 0-60 mph in about 8 seconds. The Ralliart gets up upgraded 140-watt sound system, with an optional 710-watt Rockford-Fosgate system. Other options include a navigation system and Recaro sport seats.

The best Lancer available has to be the Evolution. Its starting price is more than twice that of the Lancer DE, but that price buys 291 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque, plus Super All-Wheel Drive with yaw control. A 5-speed manual is standard in the GSR trim and a 6-speed automated-clutch manual comes in the MR and new MR Touring. All three Evos got subtle design updates, such as larger side-sill extensions and a shorter radio antenna. Interior upgrades include covered cup holders and Bluetooth.

The Evolution GSR can do 0-60 mph in about 5 seconds on its 18-inch alloy wheels, plus it has standard cruise control, fog lights, keyless entry and Recaro sport seats. The MR has BBS alloy wheels, xenon headlights, a larger rear wing and a softer suspension system, plus the Rockford-Fosgate sound system is standard. The MR Touring takes the Evolution all the way, with a sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, heated leather seats and a better insulated cabin. Most of the extra equipment on the MR and MR Touring can be added to the GSR with the Sight, Sound, and Spoiler package, but the MR Touring has one last option up its sleeve: a hard-drive-based navigation system with room for 40Gb of music.


Model News

Though the design and features of the Lancer remain mostly unchanged for 2010, there are two big additions to the overall lineup. First, the rally-ready Evolution is back after a 1-year hiatus in two trim levels. Second, the much-anticipated Sportback body style has reached U.S. shores in GTS and Ralliart editions.


Value Writeup

At the base level, the Lancer packs plenty of fun and safety features into a sub-$15,000 package. While the race-derived Evolution can get a bit pricey, it also features 300 hp and standard all-wheel drive for maximum performance. The base model returns great fuel economy, achieving 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Summary
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (Mitsubishi) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Lancer, Lancer Evolution, and Outlander; 2009-2011 Lancer Sportback and 2011 Outlander Sport vehicles. The affected vehicles, manufactured with 4B1 engines, have an engine pulley and belt arrangement for turning the alternator, the cooling fan and the power steering pump (if equipped). These pulleys may experience unusual wear and allow for belt detachment.

Consequence
If the drive belt detaches, the battery may discharge, resulting in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mitsubishi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drive belt with a rubber belt. Drive pulleys that are excessively worn will be replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mitsubishi customer service at 1-888-648-7820. Mitsubishi's number for this recall is SR-14-009.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
