I purchased a 97 Mirage right off the show room in 97. I had one accident where she hit me 3 times on the passenger side and the car took a beating and it keeps ticking. I replace the door and the front end, had it repainted and fix the dent near the gas tank. My car still looks good. This car paid for itself 10 times over. I love this car!

I have had this car for 7 years and
placed almost 200000 miles on it with no
engine complications. I have only
replaced a fuel filter, battery and
brakes during this time. The car has
started every time i have cranked it up.

We purchased a 1991 Mirage DE Coupe for
our daughter for her 16th birthday.
The car was used with over 70,000 miles
on it. Our daughter is less than good
with maintenance but this little gem
doesn't care. The Mirage now has over
102,000 miles on it without a single
repair! I can't believe this little
car just keeps humming along. This was
our first experience with Mitsubishi
and I must say I am IMPRESSED!

I've owned this car for 2.5 years
putting 26.5K miles on it. It's fun
to drive and has great go up a go
response from the engine. Manual
shifter a bit stiff when cold but
clutch is light. Doesn't break well
on wet or icey roads and tends to spin
front wheels if you accelerate too
much from a standstill.
Seats are uncomfortable and cabin
doesn't ventilate well resulting in
being too hot in Summer and fogging
the windows in Winter.
Had to replace distributor costing
over USD900! Otherwise never had a
mech. issue and get 41+MPG on highway
and 38MPG city driving.
Would highly recommend to young, cost
concious driver who wants fun and
