Mitsubishi Motors Genuine 5W-30 Engine Oil is the recommended oil for optimum engine performance and protection. SAE 0W-30 or 0W-40 engine oil is recommended to improve engine starting in cold weather conditions.

The once legendary Mitsubishi brand was blown away by the early 2000s and ceased to delight fans with drive and expressive cars. They were replaced by a measured generation without a striking design and outstanding performance. An example of this transformation was the tenth generation Lancer.

Fans of the previous generation were disappointed: the “ten” became more complex in design, lost its former reliability, the ninth generation’s agility and excitement disappeared. But comfort became a higher class, and the exterior met the modern standards of automotive beauty at that time. Most of the sales came from the history of the model.
