I am interest on buying a Lancer Ex 2007/2008 car .But I have been a Toyota user for years & do not have any experience with Mitsubishi .So Wht r the things that i should look at when buying EX car & how about its,
-Availability of spare parts
Seek ur expert comments.Thanks in advance.
Since you are a Toyota user I’m assuming you are comparing this car with the Corolla 141.
Having used both cars this is my view
-Fuel consumption - City: EX- 9-10/ 141- 8-9
Outstation: EX- 12-16/ 141- 10-14
-Availability of spare parts: Agents have them in stock, no used or third party spares
-Comfort : If you are an aggressive driver EX will be better as it handles better due to multi link rear suspension. For day to day driving not much difference. 141 has less suspension noise over rough roads.
-Suspension level : I assume this is the ride height, 141 has about ½ inch more.
-Resale market : Ex will be a nightmare to sell, if you are patient will be able to get a bargain. However you will have to take a hit when you want to get rid of the thing.
As for me I got rid of the Ex few years back and kept the 141
