2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I believe a truly accurate review on a vehicle should include proper time/mileage increments. I currently have almost 150k on my 01 ES Sedan. My opinion has not changes since my last review. I average between 31- 35mph on mostly highway commutes. This vehicle has not let me down. The engine while slow is smooth and reliable. The transmission works well with the engine. The car is much more comfortable than its size belies. I do agree that cruise control would be nice, the paint chips easily, and a tachometer should be standard. However, considering that I have not had a car payment in 5 years and the car is so easy to keep and maintain, I will gladly live without. only 1 non pm fix; AC line
Reliability, fuel economy, excellent base stereo system, roomy for size, inexpensive replacement parts, built to last (only 1 non PM maintenance; replaced AC high pressure line)
slow (but great fuel economy), paint chips easily, no tachometer
