I can't believe people still buy Lancers. I guess the addition of AWD to entry level trims a couple years back keeps it on some people's radar... I just can't imagine someone wanting a 7 year old design despite that (and the presumably large discounts).

I still don't understand how they plan on staying in the US market.  No midsize sedan and the Lancer is going to die as well, right?  So they will have a couple of SUV's and a crappy subcompact that can't possibly sell on anything other than price.  I know they keep talking about a Galant successor but when is it ever going to get here?
