Longtime Mitsubishi owner, first time eclipse cross owner.

Picked up a 2022 SE back towards the end of July to retire my daily driver ES Sportback Lancer.

Hoping to see some more owners from socal!

My wife had a sportback Lancer. That was a fun little car, but she wanted something with AWD for the Pennsylvania winters. I couldn't convince her to go with the Eclipse Cross, but now that I have mine, I think she regrets not getting one, too. I have a brother in SoCal, does that count? ;)

LOL that does count in a way.

I'll be honest I dont see a lot of EC's here even after the launch. The most I saw was when I would go to MMC HQ in Cypress before they moved to TN.

Didnt also see a lot of Sportback Lancers here, and I had mine for a good part over 9 years.

We had the sportback for 7 years. And I think I remember seeing 3 or four on the road during that whole time. I will see an occasional Eclipse Cross in the wild, but it's mostly Outlanders and Outlander Sports (known as the ASX in other parts of the world) around here. I actually prefer to be in a lesser known vehicle.

Im with you. I have been brand loyal for the most part simply because they're easy to work on, are actually very reliable (never been stranded or broke down).

My Mitsu history has been quite fun:
'95 3000GT - first car
'03 Evo 8
'05 Evo 8 MR
'08 Evo X
'12 Lancer Sportback
'13 Evo X MR
'22 Eclipse Cross

Of these, only the Evo X MR and the EC remain with me.

Sure Mitsu hasnt made the smartest decisions in the US market, but for the most part the cars have good value for your money.
