I bought this car brand new and have used and abused it ever since. I have 165,000 miles on it and don't intend on retiring it anytime soon! If you find one, buy it. It's great for college students and commuters. I've only had it in the "shop" once. This was at 55,000 and the repair was covered by the powertrain warranty. I bet I have spent less than $1000.00 bucks on maintenance, brakes and tires in the last 12 years. Only complaints: it needs new brakes about every 40,000 miles and the interior is starting to tear. I have a newer and "classier" car, but honestly I prefer to drive the Mirage. Now that gas is up so high. My friends are jealous!

Right from the start my '95 Mirage didn't drive well in the rain. After 6 monthe the seat covers started to fall apart, but the worst was an acceleration problem where it would suddenly have zero power on take off, leaving you vulnerable to serious accidents an embarrassment! I've spoken to several other Mitsubishi owners (not just of the Mirage) and have heard similar horror stories. This was a problem no one I knew has ever managed to get fixed.

This car is a little lack-y in the field of acceleration,
but once she gets up to speed she holds it with
confidence. I have the s coupe with a 1.5 SOHC
engine, slightly tweaked pushing about 100 hp on a
good day, and she hauls when she needs too.
Imagine an engine going 4800rpm at about 80 mph
down I95 - yes this is my mirage. But no need to
worry she hasn't given in at all. I got this car busted
and now it is the love of my life, wouldn't trade it
for anything else ;-)

This has been a great reliable car.
Although it lacks power of any sort, it
has been a dependable ride. The
interior is very cheaply made and the
seats have not faired very well, more
from a poor design than anything else.
The engine still runs very well and it
gets moderate gas mileage in town but
improves greatly on the highway. This
car has been very good to us.

This is my second Mitsubishi (first was
a pickup), and can't imagine buying
anything else. Just turned 170,000
miles, and never had to do anything
with it except very routine
maintenance. Gas mileage has
waned a bit with age, but still easily
tops 35. Great pick-up given its small
engine. Body in great shape for a car
its age, especially considering it has
spent its whole life in upstate New
York. Only drawback is the leaky
trunk - I can't seem to keep the rain
out. Not sure why Edmunds.com
editors have given the new models the
thumbs-down, because this car has been
the best for me.
