USB? What USB?

2013 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR TouringWith the optional navigation system not equipped on this model I had to rely instead on my iPhone, which just so happened to be low on power.

Not to worry, I thought, I’ll just plug it in to the car’s USB port. Or at least I would have done so if the car had one.

Weeks later and I’m writing this article, checking my facts and combing through the specs from the Mitsubishi press site only to discover that, to my surprise, it does have a USB port. It wasn’t on the dash, and it wasn’t in the center console either. As it turns out, a cursory glance of the glovebox didn’t turn it up either (though that’s where the port is… allegedly). I’m not alone either, a quick Google search and I came across numerous discussions on forums about the elusive Evo USB.

    Yet another anti-Evo-ite.

    For shame

    so at the autoguide track the evo s already 1.5 sec ahead of the focus? calculate how much the gap will be at the FSW or nurburgring. at the rally track evo will eat focus for breakfast.

    Except it will run out of gas in a lap. Lol.

    I think Evo rules , if you buy it for what it was meant to be done with it!! Unless you want a stupid garage queen that pampers your wimpy ass! Yes , interior sucks , no denial, and fuel economy could be better, but if you are carng for both treats, get another car!

    For the record, I LOVE the Evo. I just thought it was worthwhile to give this viewpoint. Who really wants to read another article describing at length how the car’s AWD system turned them into a professional race car driver?
    Do a quick search for the Evo vs Boss 302 review (with video) we did and you’ll hear me gush over the Evo.

    The guy who wrote this should be driving a Prius.

  • Bryan Hader

    Needs a Hollywood_x tune. ;)

  • Cleudson

    If this guy thought it about driving the EVO in the USA roads, imagine my situation driving here in Brazil? kkkk. But…I’m still happy with my EVO.

    Wow. I was averaging 22mpg on a tuned 350awhp MR Touring. It was what was expected by the car. I do agree some of the internals were a bit cheap but nothing that would affect the overall quality and performance. Based on these gripes, get a luxury sports car where these so called inspection would have a more solid ground.
