Thanks a lot for the suggestions guys i'll keep searching and hopefully I'll find something decent.

Also bumped into an add from a Mitsubishi dealer not too far from home selling a 2005 lancer. I might go have a look.

Yeah the Legend's a totally underrated & unknown car laugh.gif ~ they're a pleasure to own if you find one in good condition ~ or with a 30k budget you can certainly bring it up to near mint level condition by re-furbying with stock parts santa.gif

hahaha nope I saw one coming out of having coffee at a Denny's & thought about your post like 3 days ago | so I took a pic derp.gif ~

If you're thinking about a Mitsubushi ~ it might be worth it to save up for a 3000GT those might be a little bit more costly than a Lancer but they look sa-weet! awesome.gif ~>

Yeah but then there's the issue of finding somebody who's willing to part with such a beauty.

Still a Rallyart Lancer with the 2.4L engine and 160 HP isnt bad (I doubt it still does 160HP 10 years later but heh)

3000GTs are cantankerous. Not good for a first car. They're also extremely heavy.

Buy something that is known to be reliable and efficient. You don't want your first car to have fuel mileage in the teens, right?

Way back in 1999 when the family owned a black civic trunk space was fine. I just need the trunk space of any decent 4 door sedan.

I normally would never recommend my car (6th gen Accord V6) because of its generation's common auto transmission issues, but if you can find one in manual (will no longer be V6 but probably still not the worst driver) you might be happy. Comfy, tons of trunk space too.

You guys have any opinion on the Lancer? Anyone who owned one? Is it reliable? I'll keep looking around as much as possible but it seems like a good deal for what I found compared to most stuff. I'll obviously have it properly checked out but I'd like to know if theres a chance it might crap out on me.

I'd think that with your budget, the only Lancers you'll be affording are base trim and/or something that has been beat to shit. There are exceptions to every rule, though. Sometimes you can find a legitimate steal for the price.

My money would go towards something that should be in that budget range, not something that would have to stoop down to that level in bad circumstances (like finding a WRX for $3500 in the Midwest).

Actually asking cause I found one for 2.5K. And it seems overall alright I'll obviously look into it more.
It's the Rallyart version with the bodykits and the 2.4L engine. And except for rust on the hood it's super clean from the pictures. I'll see it in person this Friday so i'll keep you guys updated.

From my knowledge, the older Ralliarts were your base Lancer with more pep and a little poorer fuel economy. The mid-2000s Lancer's lagged behind in quality compared to their competition. I'm assuming you mean an aftermarket bodykit cause Mitsubishi never offered anything from the dealership.

Its the base lancer with more options by default different bodykits and a 2.4L engine instead of a 2.0 (And I think a 40 HP difference?)

Kinda like the current Elantra(Hyundai) lineup where you have a few models and the "sport" which is an all equipped version with a badge and a few other things.

Ahh. I was curious as I've seen a few base and OZ-Rally Lancer's with the wing from a Lancer Evolution or even full bodykits.

Yup exactly that model, crazy horsepower on it too, too bad the driving position is a tad awkward. Not sure what they did with the taillights either.
