Default Owning a mitsubishi

Hey everyone,
Im new to this forum, I already posted to the new members are so dont start clenching your butt cheeks just yet. Im really excited cause im getting my car tommorow. Its a 2010 lancer DE with 30,000KM, it was never sold to a person, always owned by the dealership as a demo. I got a really good deal, with winter tires, 4 seasons, remote starter and new radio with bluetotth and usb port. i absolutely wanted the usb port. In all he let it go for 16000 before taxes. im happy about getting a mitsubishi with a great warranty.

What pitfalls should I avoid with this car...is there any known issues that are common in lancers? What about timing belt, is that at 120, 000KM.
thanks for the starter tips guys and I look forward to cartalk with you all
cheers

Congratulations on your new car. As far as advice is concerned, before doing any major work at your dealership, do some of your own research to avoid getting screwed financially by your dealership. They will always offer bunch of unnecessary work. And as far as timing belt is concerned, 2010 Lancer DE comes with a 2.0l 4B11 engine which has a timing chain, meaning, no timing belt ever needs to be replaced.
