Any experience with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution?

I’m looking for a new car and considering the Evo. Anybody have one, or driven one? Also, I’ve heard that a) Mitsubishi has reliability issues and, b) The company is in pretty poor financial shape at the moment. How true are either of those statements, and if they are true, how worried should I be about that?


Not much to add. One of my good friends has one. I’ve driven it a bit, and it’s a blast. I don’t think he’s had any repair issues with it (it’s two years old now I think).
