Hi, I purchased my 2001 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Sedan back in August, of 2011. I paid $1,500.00 cash for the car, the odometer read 160,000 miles, I thought I was buying a dying car, or a car on the verge of death. (at the time I knew nothing about Mitsubishi). But this car has been anything but a dying car, it has been a great first car. I've even gone as far as naming my car buster. This is a terrific starter car for anyone, old, middle aged, or young. Almost little to no maintenance, get in and drive. This car has never let me down. The Japanese really built an amazing car. I personally thank Mitsubishi motors for building a superb vehicle that was built with quality in mind.

Truly unbelievably reliable. Bought this from friends who were original owner and nothing but normal maintenance has ever been done to this other than some emissions things that needed to be done for living in Illinois (car came from Indiana). Car now has over 211,000 miles on it and still going strong. Only issues are so minor I don't even care (cup holders as mentioned are long gone), driver side door electronic lock wore out, keys are getting worn so only one will open the trunk. Lever to pop the trunk is broken.. but all these are so minor for such an old car, that the fact that nothing major has ever gone wrong yet on this car is truly a testament. Having had many used Ford's, Chrysler's, with MUCH lower mileage etc over the years and having to continually put in tons of work just to get the thing to run long enough to get to work, and then having this has been amazing. I will truly be sad when the time comes, and I wish more cars were this simple, cheap and reliable.

I owned this car for 8 yrs now started with 150k and it now has 310k. After dropping my own 150 thousand miles this car still won't die. Obviously maintenance is the biggest factor but not much was ever done to the engine and transmission. Still runs great and I think it is a hidden gem of reliable cars, if only it was known to be such from its inception I would have bought it new.

GREAT LITTLE CAR.

Hello, I have had many, many cars through out the years from muscle cars to Hondas, and I am also a Mechanic. I bought this mirage for only $500. It has 253,000 miles on it. Runs like a top. Gets great gas mileage. I just run 87 octane gas in it, and I'm getting 30-32 MPG in the city! Not bad . it's very dependable. I know it's going to start every time I get in it. The cons: the window regulators are cable driven and are famous for the cables to break. But it only take about 15 minutes to swap one out. I had to change 3 of them when I bought it. Got all 3 at the local junk yard for $60.and fuel sending unit was bad. But also so easy to replace. The access port is under the back seat. (3) 8 mm bolts and you're done. I love this little car! I would recommend one to anyone who is looking for an a to b vehicle, or first car.
