    Haha... would have been happier if the Lancer GT had proved to have more oomph.

    Hmmm... Lancer 2.0 GT plus turbo kit kaya? 250+ hp on a stock block...

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Problem is, the CVT is mated to the 1.8 engine, a 4G93, I think, and isn't built to take the torque of the 4G63. What little there is left in this emasculated version, that is...

    Considering the MP3 / Familia Sport it's based on dates back to 2001, and the fact that some Honda boys have told me (mistakenly) that it has the rear suspension of a Laser (yup, the 1980-something Laser... ), yeah, it's old school.

    There's charm in being old school. Both the Lancer and the Lynx possess the classic three-box sedan shape, unlike the bulbous Corolla, the mouse-shaped (computer mouse, that is ) Civic or the heavy Mazda3/Focus twins. The Sentra doesn't count, because I couldn't get one. ... neither has electronic throttles, electric power steering or any of that crap. Though they both have ABS, EBD and direct ignition and injection, they're the closest to old school sport compacts you can still buy brand new today...

    Unless, that is, somebody finds a cache of Honda SiRs that have been sitting in a storeroom in the Honda plant all this time and decides to sell them. Daming papatol dun.

    RE: Nissan CVT: they use a heavier chain driven CVT system. Their problem is actually the opposite of Mitsubishi's and Honda's... they've only recently reduced its size to fit smaller engines.

    They've been using a CVT on their 300hp Gloria (not sure, think this is the one) since the 90's.

    You can trust Nissan to over-engineer everything... super strong blocks (last longer than transmission)... chain-drive cams (last longer than engine), chain-drive CVT (last longer than Hondas?)...

    cant comment enough sa nissan, 15 years and still strong, 130K pa lang,e!

    anywayz, as i review the price quotes: overpriced nga ang GT vs RS! sa RS-CE or RS, in black ako!

    di bale nalang walang dvd, mas useful pa rin ang stick, multi-lights and sunroof for me!
