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 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.

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
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?
