Good first car?


Topic starter

Found a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer with 26k miles on it. From the pics looks like good condition. As a first car, I'm not really looking for something super fast, just something I can enjoy around fun corners. The guy's asking $4.5K. Thoughts? It's automatic transmission.

Aside from anything else I'd be wondering why a nearly 20 year old car allegedly only has 26K miles on it.


I would be very suspect about that vehicle. 

It says it was owned by their mother who recently passed and only used it to get to and from town

The story told in the old days was usually "Only driven by a little old lady to church on Sundays." If you're really interested in that car better have it thoroughly checked out by a good mechanic. However all else being equal an old Corolla or Civic would be a better bet than an old Mitsubishi any day of the week.
