    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    Thank you so much @iRage for your honest explanation.I think you are absolutely correct.It would be bit difficult to find spares but its possible I guess.I have seen Lots of car enthusiasts have been using very rare and uncommon models in Sri Lanka.I will have to plan ahead as you mentioned and as per experience if anyone truly loves for something he will find out resources because of the law of attraction. Thanks again @iRage.

    I don't have any idea about this triptonic transmission or gearbox.Most of the CS3s (2010+ )which were advertised are having this gear system (CVT I guess).Are they hard to find in Sri Lanka for replacement?? ( I think this is what mentioned by @trinity) And also its reliability with compared to manual ??Please share your ideas.

    Thank you so much @trinity.I have read almost all your comments about your manual CS1 and I think its the most suitable one for me. Quoted prices for 2007 manual CS1 glx models are between 2.6-2.8 Mil and some are available with good condition+less mileages. I will try to find a brand new imported one and with good condition.I think I will have to expand my budget at least to 3Mil if I go to a 2.8 Mil car as explained by @iRage (Timing belt replacement and other repairs etc..) Few CS3 cars also have advertised and quoted prices are slightly above 3 Mil for 2011 models with triptonic gears.Its very hard to find a CS3 with a manual gearbox and well maintained.Also I think its better to avoid triptonic since I'm living far from colombo and better to stay with CS1 with cheap and reliable manual gearbox. Thanks !

    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    Thank you all for sharing your valuable ideas and experiences on each and every vehicle which I was suggested.You all are very helpful and I have been lucky enough to have real expert advises here. I don't have much experiences about vehicles but everything mentioned by @iRage are absolutely true with my company owned Mitsubishi L200 double cab (2000 manufacturured) which I have been driving for 3 yrs.Driving it feels like a car and not hard to handle like the 2009 Hilux.Back seat also more comfortable than the Hilux and not moving here and there all over the seat while taking bends in a road like Badulla-Nuwaraeliya.Both of them are manual but L200 was much fun to drive than the Hilux as I experienced.Only one bad thing about L200 is it was feeling bit under powered while travelling in hilly areas.I think its because 2500CC engine.Other than that nothing is wrong with its and most of the spares (for running repairs) also available in Badulla and Bandarawela.As everyone mentioned about handling of Mitsubishis are absolutely correct with that L200 too. Now I have my heart set on Lancer and eagerly waiting to drive it and take care of it like john wick ☺️ .I prefer CS3 but its going little over 3 Mil for a 2011+ model as @Davy mentioned.I will try my best to expand my budget at leat up to 3 Mil while searching a well maintained one. I'm not much experienced about gear boxes and please educate me if you have time. 1.How reliable is the trip-tronic gearbox ? Since most of the CS3s (2011+) I have seen were having trip-tronic. Any guesses about fuel figures in Badulla area? I'm not much concern about fuel efficiency. But..less than 10 is beyond my affordability. 2.How is CS1 2007 with a manual gear box? If I could nor go for a 2011+ CS3 I will definitely go for it.Quoted prices (2.6-2.8 Mil) also match with my budget. As @trinitys experiences I think It will full fill my requirements.Please let me know that is it ok to go for a CS1 manual than a one with a auto box? I think I'm skilled enough about clutch balancing etc.Since I have driven that manual L200 without any worries. Thank you !

    Thank you so much @Hyaenidae for your valuable time and the shared information. Thats absolutely true about the availability of CS1 and CS3 with mint condition. As you mentioned owners who taken well care of the car are not going to sell it easily. I saw that EX with 190,000Kms and it was in great condition and hard to believe that it has a mileage more than 100,000 kms. Quoted price was 3.7 Mil and its beyond my budget at the moment (But definitely my next car will be a Lancer EX). Also thank you so much for sharing experiences and information about Mitsubishi agents.After looking at Sampath's CS1 now I have an idea is what an absolute minter is.Thanks again for linking it here.I think i'm bit afraid to think about CS2 since you guys have mentioned that EFI is reliable than GDI.And also most of you have praised the CS1 and CS3 than CS2. Now I have only 2 choices.CS1 and CS3. Since they are hard to find I will have to wait for a decent one to pop on adverts.

    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    Yes..Thanks for the idea.I will try to find one with low mileage since I don't have any idea to sell it within next 5/8 yrs.

    Mitsubishi Lancer CS3 or Yaris ?

    Actually my dream car is Lancer EX.But they have priced around 3.5 Mil (2008) and its over my budget.Now im looking for a Lancer CS3 but there are only few have advertised.I think I'm having enough skills to enjoy the ride of a manual since I have been driving my company owned L200 manual for 3 yrs.But I think CS1 is not having enough power for use in my area (Badulla) If I could not find a decent CS3 for my budget I will have to get a Yaris 2008.There are few brand new imported ones have advertised. Thanks.

    Thank you so much for quick response.Thats absolutely true about Yaris availability.There are lots of them available with first owner permit imported for my budget.Definitely I will think about a auto then. What about Lancer CS3 auto ?? I think its possible to find a 2012 one with around 100k Mileage.
