Buying Guide

Good

Effectively, in real world conditions, the Evo VII 300 was probably the fastest point to point car of its day in the UK.

Bad

It will lead you into temptation and you could very easily lose your licence as a result. 

Use a lot of fuel.

Average warranty repair costs in 2003 Warranty Direct Reliability index (index 101.16 v/s lowest 31.93)due to high cost of individual repairs. Average warranty repair costs in 2003 Warranty Direct Reliability index (index 101.16 v/s lowest 31.93). Link:- www.reliabilityindex.co.uk

Watch

Damage from over-revved engines and kerbing. 

Needs 5000 mile fully synthetic oil changes, and a hard used 300 engine could give out in as little as 5000 miles.

Recalls

August 2002: All 37,000 Evo V, VI and VIIs recalled worldwide because Lambda sensor can cause excessive emissions and fuel consumption. Replaced FOC on official imports.

31-10-2003: on 574 Lancers CT9A-0200201 to CT9A-0206345 pin in gearshift control could fall out making it impossible to change gear. Check tightness of pin and if loose fit new gear shift set. Also fit secondary locking arrangement to pin.
