2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 4A)
Bought car used in December 2011 with 144k on the odometer. Have driven the car 10k since purchase and am very pleased with it. Car gets very good gas mileage and has so far proven to be reliable and simple to maintain. All required maintenance can be done by anyone who has a basic knowledge of cars. Engine is well laid out and the small engine allows easy access to most components. Interior materials are of high quality and would rival the best. Dashboard layout isn't terrible, but I would've appreciated a higher radio placement. Cupholder is small and it's effectiveness can vary. Blocks radio. Overall though, I think I will be holding onto this one for a while. Very satisfied overall.
folding rear seat, manueverability and gas mileage.
Dash layout could have been improved. Would have liked to have a sliding coin tray on driver's side similar to Honda or Toyota. Also whould have liked to have an O/D on and off switch on the shifter, as well as a shift lock override. Cupholders should be placed behind the shifter.
