Have had my 98 for about 8 yrs. Averaged 34 mpg, and have seen 45 mpg on straight highway driving. Put on a cold air intake and now it sounds more throaty. Very reliable. Never been in the shop. Lots of room to work on engine. (it's smaller than some motorcycles engines). I always talk about the mileage. Why get a hybrid, is what I Wonder.
My mirage has over 136,000 on it anx it always starts instantly no matter what season. It has never given me any issues. It turns on a dime get unbeeleivable mpgs. And i used it to tow my friends full sized oldsmobile and it did it fine. This car can do anything you want it to. I highly recomend it to anyone.
I just bought a 1998 Mirage DE Sedan
after I lost my first car in a wreck.
What a great purchase it turned out to
be! Wonderful appearance for an economy
sedan. It's very refined and clean
looking. Interior design is very eye
pleasing and fit and finish is great.
The performance is what surprises me
about this car, it's very peppy for a
92 hp engine!
We've had this vehicle for about four
years now, nearly 65,000 miles, without
any problems whatsoever. Only work
needed so far has been for routine
maintenance. Good fuel economy at
~30mpg average city/hwy mix. Our
mechanic even loves it, says it's very
easy to work on.
