Review of the 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage

  • Although generally a good little car, the dated Mirage is hallucinating if it thinks it can challenge the class leaders.

Very reliable

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

I have a 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage, manual transmission. 160,000 miles on it, I've had it for 2 years, and the occasional repairs are just wear and tear - break pads, spark plugs. A basic but very reliable car.




I hate this car

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

I purchased my Mirage seven months ago. I think this car is slow. The interior layout is nice, but is very small. I can only have one passenger with me or it is very uncomfortable. Do not buy this car.




Compact and sporty

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 2dr Coupe (1.5L 4cyl 5M)

This is my first car, and I would highly recomend it to any young driver. It's sporty, and handles extremely well. Compared to other manual vehicles, the Mirage shifts gears very easily. There is an issue with interior room if passengers are large or tall, but that can be expected with a compact car. The silver paint also seems to chip relatively easily. Overall, this car is perfect for a driver who carries few passengers at a time and is looking for a reliable, small, sporty car.

What's New for 2001

All 2001 Mirages now have tether anchors for child seats and meet LEV standards. A power sunroof is now available with the coupe's sport package. Sedan buyers can choose from the LS or the new base ES trim model that replaces the DE model. Nothing else has changed but the designation -- John Mellencamp? John Cougar? John Cougar Mellencamp?
