2000 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought this car brand new in 2000 because my '87 Nissan Sentra was dying on me. I have haven't had any problems since owning it, even after getting into a fender bender in 2001. I did my best to maintain it with regular oil change and such. This is the most reliable car I've owned and I'm actually sad to let it go. I traded it in for a new 2007 Volvo S40 tonight and somehow I'm ridden with guilt for replacing it since I really didn't need a new car.


Best Features

Small and compact so it was easy to maneuver in heavy traffic, power doors/locks/windows, gas mileage was good, the price was decent compared to Honda and Toyota.


Worst Features

The engine could've been bigger but it got me from point A to point B with no problems. And for $13k I shouldn't complain.

2000 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan


Review

I just got this car about a week ago. So far it is an awesome car. The only complaint that I have are the cup holders are really annoying trying to put them back in there place. They get stuck and take like a minute to put in when it should just slide in. The car has 93,000 miles so its very reliable just get oil checked every 3,000 miles and the car will last forever. My next door neighbor has the same car and there's is up to 100,000 miles and still runs good. But my red car looks a lot better then there tan one.


Best Features

Glove compartment is huge. I can fit anything in that thing.


Worst Features

I think they changed the car into a Lancer which I like a lot more the body style is a lot nicer so I guess nothing.

Review

I bought my 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage with only 12,995 miles on it in April, '01. Now, in March of '06, I have over 112,000 miles on it, and my only problem is that my AC does not work (it needs to be charged, that's all). It has gotten me through snow, ice, and all that is not nice. It's not the most powerful car in it's class, but it will get you around slower cars on the interstate without much effort. Everytime I feel the need to trade in or sell my Mirage, I drive it once more, and I'm reminded as to why I still have it.


Best Features

It has a great sound system for a stock vehicle, the AC and CD Player controls are well-placed, it handles well, has a decent- sized backseat for passengers, and good trunk space. The Mirage has good engine pop for only having 113 HP.


Worst Features

Cruise control would have been nice.

Review

I bought a 2000 Mitsubishi Mirage to replace a flooded car in Hurricane Katrina. I expect that it will most likely provide good reliability due to its Japanese manufacture. Its interior design is modern, useable and easy to understand. The exterior is what you would expect from a '00 model year. The trunk space is good. The car drives well and its body integrity feels better than most other small cars, especially Kia or Hyundai models of the same year. My opinion is this is a great car for anyone looking for a good used car that gets good gas mileage and is well built. The fact that this car historically depreciates quickly is advatageous to used car buyers.


Best Features

I love the interior design, material, craftsmanship, and Japanese reliability. Its rapid depreciation is an asset for used car buyers, use it!


Worst Features

Give it a little more power.

Best Features

Compact. Can park anywhere. Front wheel drive allows me to drive easily through rain and snow.


Worst Features

Car has performed beyond expectations for five years.
