MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 16, 2003.MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003, manufactured by MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN:MANUAL TRANSMISSION . at 1000 miles the clutch in my 03 lancer evo began to slip occasionally. i brought this to the attention of the mitsubishi service department and they explained that they could not help me unless the problem could be recreated. at 3000 miles the transmission began to grind into 5th gear occasionally. again i was told not to bring it in until it could be recreated. at 4000 miles i was able to recreate the condition. mitsubishi agreed to repairing the transmission under the terms of the warranty. a convenience inspection of the clutch was also performed at this time. the initial response from mitsubishi was that they were not going to repair the clutch even though it showed signs of slippage, and they attributed it to abuse. the claim was unfounded and eventually reversed by the district parts representative for mitsubishi and the repairs were covered under warranty. my concern is that without my diligence my claim would not have been resolved and more importantly had i not convinced them to perform the inspection the inevitable failure of the clutch may have manifested itself in such a manner to cause a serious accident. the failure rates for the drivetrain of this vehicle seem very suspect to me and may warrant an independent investigation into the reliability of those components. these items should not fail so early in their service life or with such frequency unless there was a mechanical defect that required a recall. i am also suspicious that the service departments seem to have received instructions to dismiss claims regarding warranty drivetrain repairs. i was warned numerous times throughout the service that if any sign of abuse was present my warranty would be voided and all the charges associated with the inspection and repair would be my responsibility. this felt more like a tactic to deter or scare me into continuing to drive a vehicle that was potentially dangerous. *la.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 4229 miles.

MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 15, 2003.MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003, manufactured by MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with POWER TRAIN . at around 9500 miles the car began sticking, slipping gears, jamming into gear. it was diagnosed as a failed body valve, which they ordered and sent me home for 10 days waiting for the part--meanwhile the car progressively became worse, making entering the freeway questionable, etc. after 10 days it began doing the same thing--took car back in--they sent me home while they tried to reach mitsubishi...when i demanded rental stating i did not feel safe (i called mitsubishi, who intervened and had me take car back to dealer until it is fixed). dealer told me they are ordering 6 more transmission parts based on mitsubishi's advice. meanwhile, i spoke with an independent mechanic who worked for mitsubishi, who said that if the body valve failed, there is probably internal damage to the transmission and that talking on the phone and ordering parts is not fixing the cause of the problem--also that the transmission and computer have to be in sync, and a damaged transmission could affect the computer of the car. so we have techs talking back and forth on the phone, a dealership service dept that does not have the answers talking to a tech hundreds of miles away, and neither party has seen the inside of the transmission....i feel like i have a defective car and am running to the shop which is just putting bandaids on the problem..Mileage was 9500 miles.

MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003 car safety problem was reported on Apr 10, 2007.MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003, manufactured by MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:CONTROLS/WIRING . when i first got the lancer in 2003 one of the first things i noticed was that the knob for the air and heat was really difficult to turn. i took it into the dealer and was told that it was "just a little sticky" and if i kept turning it, it would work itself out and be fine. i avoided using it as much as possible because it never got better. a year or so later i had to take my vehicle in for a factory recall and during that visit i once again asked about the knob. the tech looked under the panel and said it was just sticking a bit and put some grease on the gears and said to just work it, turning it back and forth, and it would work itself out. it was fine for a couple days but went back to the way it was shortly there after. finally, a few weeks ago, while on my way to the airport to pick up a friend, i went to turn the heat on and the knob just snapped off. this time when i took it in to the dealer they told me since the rod that connects the knob to the gears inside was what snapped it would be about $500-$600 to repair. he even asked why i never had it looked at and fixed before it snapped off. i told him i did numerous times and was blown off each time. but now that it is an actual problem they are willing to fix it, for a fee of course. upon doing some research i realized that other people have had this problem with their lancers and have had similar problems trying to get it fixed. this is cause for complaint, the dealer was not willing to fix it when i mentioned the problem numerous times while the vehicle was under warranty. now this has turned into a costly problem that i believe is a defect in the vehicles. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JA3AJ86E23U.

MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 01, 2007.MITSUBISHI LANCER 2003, manufactured by MITSUBISHI MOTORS NORTH AMERICA, INC. had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:CONTROLS/WIRING . i purchased a 2003 mitsubishi lancer es brand-new from a dealership in the summer of that year. shortly after purchase, i realized the temperature-control knob was stiff and would have to be forced to switch from heat to cool and vice versa. i took it into the dealership, where a service technician oiled it. that helped for a few months before it started sticking again. basically, it would feel as it the knob was stuck between hot and cold. it would have to be forced beyond that point. once forced, it would either not stick in the most extreme temperature setting (i.e. max ac or highest heat setting) or it would not move much at all. it would often feel as if it were on the verge of breaking. i took it back to the dealership in 2005, where i was told it was a common complaint among 2003 lancer owners. the service tech at that time told me it would cost $800 to fix but that so long as the heating and ac worked most of the time, it would be smarter to hold off until mitsubishi issued a recall. he indicated that a recall was imminent because of the number of complaints he was aware of. the knob on my car officially broke last week. there is still no recall on the part, but a service technician i spoke to this morning said that mitsubishi recently released a fix-it kit to repair the problem. according to him, that is the good news. the bad news is that it would cost $1,000 to repair, because the entire dash has to be removed to make the repair. total estimated repair time is about 8 hours. it's my belief that this problem is common enough to warrant a recall on the temperature control knob and company-paid repair. *tr.Mileage was 75000 miles.
