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.
I like how it is small, has good brakes, and gets good gas mileage.
I purchased my Mirage LS new in May of 1998 and have enjoyed owning it ever since. My only regret is that Mitsubishi no longer manufactures the Mirage. I now have 120,000 miles on it and other than routine maintenance it has not cost me a dime. The highway mileage has never been less than 32 miles per gallon. It has been a great little car.
The handling and acceleration are better than I expected when I bought it and the interior and body has held up quite well over the years. I guess the most amazing feature is that after eight years everything still works as well as they did the day I purchased it.
