Lancer Evolution

  • 138,000 miles


I was heading to a class when I noticed my clutch pedal went almost all the way to the floor. The clutch was still disengaging/engaging when I shifted so I made it to my destination. I was worried about driving it but I decided to try and see if it was still doing it, so I tried to back out of a spot but it would no longer go into gear and the clutch pedal was all the way to the floor. Turned out my brake master cylinder was faulty and I learned through online forums and friends that it was a common issue with the Lancer evolution. I was surprised at that and wondered why Mitsubishi would not issue a recall for faulty brake master cylinders. It dawned on me that most people with this type of car are the "do it yourself" kind of person and more than likely were fixed by the owners of the cars, therefor never reported through mechanics or dealerships. After the master cylinder was replaced, the throw out bearing retaining clip came loose and damaged the pressure plate. So now it is being replaced, and I believe it was all caused by the master cylinder. Had it worked properly, I never would have had these problems and spending all this money. What I am hoping is that more owners come forward with the same issue and report them, and that it doesn't happen to someone while they're driving on the freeway or stuck in traffic. They could potentially lose hydraulic power to the clutch system and brakes, resulting in a hazardous situation that could damage to property or cause injury or death.

There is an active center differential pump failure that is becoming common in all Lancer evolutions of this year. Mine went out last year and I have been having to drive with it for a year now not knowing whether the differential is corroding at an accelerated rate of not. I did this because after I had my vehicle assessed they told it would be $2500 to replace. I researched online and found that this is a very common problem and can be dangerous therefore causing me to have to pay this absurd amount even with knowing that almost 60% of evo drivers have to deal with this same issue.
