2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I am the third owner of this car, my sis bought on 2001, then my bro took over, then I bought from my bro, it has almost 150,000 miles now and its running strong, very good on gas. I get about 31-32 mpg w/city/hwy combined and running on 17'inch wheels. I've had no major problems w/this car, just only minor maintenance, I will keep this car as long as its alive.
Excellent fuel economy, good styling, roomier than I expected. Cheap replacement parts.
Definitely cruise control, rear disc brakes standard on all models, need just bit more power, need better sealing for quieter interior noise.
