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.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Sleek styling, quality interior materials, stable handling.

  • Cons

    Doesn't quite measure up to competition.

  • 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…

Very reliable

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.

Fantastic car!!!

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

After my first car, a Pontiac that gave me nothing but trouble, I wanted to get a foreign car that was dependable and affordable. The Mirage hit a home run. Drove it for 7 years and 122,000 miles. Barely put any money into it except for normal maintenance. Parts starting wearing out more around 170k miles but what do you expect? Liked this Mitsubishi so much I decided to upgrade to a newer Galant. So far it's awesome as well. This car's value is one of the best, if not the best. If you can find one with 100k miles or so, i'd say you're good to go for several years.

Undisputed champ car

Vehicle: 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)

My wife and I are both in our early 30's. While Im on my 6th car. This is still her very 1st car. And its not because she doesnt have fun driving it! I am amazed by this car! The odometer now says 267,000 and its all original. just easy standard maintainance. It just blows my supposedly better vehicle choices away. Thank You Mitsu!

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?
