I would say after installing the a turbo oversized exhaust and a cold air intake it was fast light weight, mine has 160 hp now but still working on it. Great car all over I have love it.

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe

I bought this car for my wife. She didn't like it, so I have been driving it for about two years. My other car is a '99 Camry. It is small but, that is what I like about it. I go everywhere, park anywhere, do not think about gas. Did I say it gets 30-33 MPG on average. Its color is white so it is seen by other drivers clearly, which is good for me. The only thing I did is change the timing belt and water pump. This car has never failed me.




Very reliable

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe

I bought this car at 107,000 miles, It now has nearly 140,000. I have only had to replace a couple belts, otherwise no problems at all. Unfortunately it's probably gonna be totalled out by an insurance company for body damage.




Very pleased

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe

The first 3 yrs, I put over 36k per yr on this car, most of that in the Appalachian Mtns. The Yokahoma tires that came with it lasted about 90k miles, and the seat covers still look great. I average about 40 mpg overall. It survived a deer collisionw/only front end body damage. It handles very well in snow on paved roads, but does not have the power to handle deep snow or icy grades on rutted dirt roads. It now has a bit of tapping when it starts, and the suspension is losing out to the rough dirt road where we live now. I'll have to give it up soon for something w/more clearance & traction, but it will be sorely missed.
