1997 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan

Review

9 months into ownership- It's a surprisingly great car to own. Fantastic gas mileage = 29/35mpg for me. Quite peppy and quick for such a small engine. Maintenance is easy and affordable - no big problems yet. I hesitated to buy the car, thinking I needed a Honda Civic instead, but I was so wrong! With the exception of looks, this car is right on par with the Civics. Exterior design is not the best, but the interior is good. No complaints thus far and the previous owner said the same. I paid $1000 for it instead of $4000 for a similar Civic - easy choice in this economy. I thought it needed a paint job, but a waxing got rid of the dullness - it looks great! Reliable mpg alternative.

Favorite Features

Fuel Economy. Quick little car. Good interior. Price 1/4 of Civic.

Suggested Improvements

Exterior Looks. Turbo/AWD (jk) No Cruise Control (was it an option?)
