    perhaps a locally assembled lancer would do wonders for mitsu
    if tc=p then hc=m where tc is equal to toyota corolla and p is equal to paindu, and hc is equal to honda civic and m is equal to moron

    Oh well car sale in pakistan is based on a ususal trend and the trend never changed
    its still Suzuki toyota and Honda
    even if some day the WTO is implimented and import of old cars is allowed even then well see TOYOTA HONDA and Suzuki as its an subcontinent trend

    Mitsubishis are always thought of as cars which have expensive maintenance and that phobia led to low market of Mitsubishis
    Audi is like a disease once it gets in your blood there is no going back

    @ enerlevel
    you forgot to mention noisy cabin
    noisy gearbox in mt case
    biggest drawback is its fuel requirement is Ron 97 i.e high octane
    and most of the interior is made of huge and bulky plastic
    and spares are mostly available at dealerships and they are very costly
    -Destruction is upon u!!!!!

    wonder why DMMC never did anything to assemble Lancer here.. a locally made one would have been much affordable and spares would have been cheaper also. the prices were high mainly due to imports

    it died due to the very reason of accountants calling the shots - not engineers, the cars were not upto spec for the pak market, and the dealerships hired chimpanzees to repair them.

    beleive it or not - the new dewan motors galant uses a 4g63 carburettor engine mated to a ELC 4 speed auto - whose neutral piston siezes and stalls the car OR it will break the input shaft in the torque convertor

    cool innit

    If you had read my post in context to the question asked by toofast you would have noticed that I was referring to the US market.The USDM Galant is hideous.

    Right now they are selling Lancer 1.3 GLX for 13.7 lakhs (they increased the price from 13.0 just recently, although I agree its expensive but when Gli can sell like hot cakes for 13.84( plus add tire changing costs also as many people replace the Pakistani tires immediately) seriously we cant blame lancer for being the only overpriced car. True, a local lancer would bring the price tag down to 12 at least.

    I read on some thread on PW a long time back that they were considering making a local lancer but the plan got scrapped due to some troubles. Right now DMMC is hardly in the position to undertake any such venture.

    Someone also posted on PW the new gen Lancer would be coming to Pakistan in 2010 and it would be 1.8.

    I just got me a 1.6 GLX Auto w/ Sunroof, and although I'd have laughed if someone told me this last week; but I'm quite surprised by the superior pick, suspension and responsiveness.

    As some of you may know, I sold my 03 VTI M/T as well as my dad's 05 VTI A/T - And this lancer seems to be beating them both in terms of pics as well as responsiveness... Surprise !!! Surprise !!!
