Edmunds' Expert Review

vehicle overview

Available as a coupe or sedan in DE and LS trim levels, the Mirage is now better-equipped to battle with sales favorites like the Honda Civic and the Ford Escort.

The most noticeable changes to the cars this year include new rear deck lids and taillamps, and a redesigned sunglass storage case, which is standard on LS and optional on DE with the Preferred Equipment Package. For 1999, new seat fabric and two new exterior colors also debut: Royal Blue Pearl and Santa Fe Beige Metallic. The Mirage Coupe LS also adds white-faced instrumentation, and a tachometer is included with both manual and automatic transmissions.

The entry-level DE has a 95-horsepower, 1.5-liter engine mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic transmission. DE sedan has a front stabilizer bar that helps the car move nimbly between potholes and slow-moving traffic, and both the DE coupe and sedan have a four-wheel independent suspension. LS models, which are meant to appeal to a fashion-conscious crowd, have larger engines which displace 1.8 liters and make 113 horsepower. Other upgrades include alloy wheels, a chrome-tipped exhaust, tilt steering, a stereo with integrated CD controls and a covered center armrest.

We have always liked the Mirage, thinking it one of the better entry-level cars on the market today, and the 1997 redesign hasn't diminished our thoughts about the car. The LS coupe equipped with ABS and the LS Value Package; with these options, the Mirage has almost every conceivable convenience, has a base MSRP of less then $15,500, and doesn't look like every other car parked outside the mall.

1999 Highlights

A new rear deck lid and taillamps, new seat fabric and some different exterior colors premier on the Mirage. The LS trim level also gets a few interior enhancements.

97 Mirage LS
dantej,09/05/2012
Bought a 97 Mirage LS from a friend with 92K on it.I didn't know the car and was really just taking a chance;however, this will tend to be the most reliable I ever bought.THIS LIL THING HATES REPAIR SHOPS I on 190K and this runs around like a two year child. Will not sell it any time soon, so I changed the control arms,paint job, all struts and mounts,alternator and tie rods.I will push this thang to 300K. Still cheaper owning it than making car payments
Cheapest car I have ever owned
LoneStar,05/14/2002
This is by far the cheapest car in quality I have ever had the displeasure to own. The paint looks as if they used the worst they could find, and this includes a repaint job I had done to repair a collision. It is loud at any speed. The window cranks open on their own due the harsh ride leaving me with wind noise on the highway when I can't adjust it. Mitsubishi must mean "substandard" in Japanese.
Think twice before buying

I bought my 99 mitsubishi when it was about a year and something old in 2001. a few months after purchasing it , it gave me problems mostly with the brakes. It is crazy how many times I have gotten the brakes fix .
The BEST CAR EVER!!!
June,03/10/2009
My baby has been such a GREAT car. She has been extremely reliable. I got my money's worth over and over again. I love her and I still have her-she has 168,000 and still running. I LOVE this car and if I could pick her up and hug her I would and tell her thank you for carrying me and my beautiful child around everywhere. It is a shame that they do not make them anymore.

Should I lease or buy a 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
