Our Mirage LS was exceptionally reliable. Like our previous Colt, not much more than routine maintenance, with tires and brakes lasting 60K. After 120K the car did loose some zip, maybe form diminished compression. And while fuel economy also declined, we could still obtain 35 mpg plus on the long trips.
Very sturdy. Firm suspension, but decent handling. Checkered interior seemed funky at first, but was pleasant over the years. Nothing terrible to report, just turn the key and go!
