2014 Mitsubishi Mirage ES 4dr Hatchback (1.2L 3cyl 5M)


Seems like car reviewers focus on how horrible the car is.
Depends on what you are looking for.
I hate the big bloated heavy cars everyone seems to love.
I wanted a warranty, cheap to buy and cheap to drive.
Car scores huge on all points there.
It also has nice features for the price.
I reccomend the ES manual with no extra options.
CVT is for the lazy, and it adds a lot to the price of the car.

It has a growly engine sound (I find this a positive not a negative).
Handling can be improved greatly by adding a $200 rear sway bar. Styling is so so.
Interior is hard plastic but seems like there is very little to break.
It is designed to be practical and durable.
No defects so far

Best Features

Cheap, practical, proximity key, bluetooth. Its just an EASY no hassle car.

Worst Features

Better handling and steering feel. More choices in 'mature' colors.

Is this stabilizer bar dealer or aftermarket? I agree with your review, yes it's growly when pushed but why is this 'cute' when noticed in other vehicles? It does wallow a bit so I'd be curious about the stabilizer bar as I might be buying the cvt version, although anything other than the base vehicle is overpriced in my opinion and I think sales are reflecting this. For the city and my purposes it will suit just fine. I want green,eco, and mpgs without batteries. Frankly I feel a little guilty firing up my Highlander to go get milk and eggs, with this I'll feel more eco-responsible.
