Excellent Car

by Loyal Driver from Atlanta Metro, GA | June 17, 2013

I bought my Mitsubishi Mirage new in 2002, and 12 years later, I have to sell it because we need a bigger car for our growing family. I have performed the regular recommended maintenance on this car, and it has been so good to me. I have never had any surprises or unexpected repairs. It is just a very well-made car that will last forever. What I like most is that the small size and stick shift allow for easy maneuvering, from parking lots to small streets to switching lanes. At highway speeds, it is very quiet and smooth. The gas mileage is amazing. Despite the small size, I have always felt safe in this car because I feel at one with the road and the stick shift keeps me alert and at one with the car. I have had to brake very suddenly on a few occasions and the car was very responsive. The exterior of the car is susceptible to dings and scratches, and the interior ribbed cloth on the inside does collect crumbs, but the design of the dash is very nice and resembles that of the of Honda Civic. I am very sad to have to say goodbye to this car at 130,000 miles and I hope the next owner will appreciate it as much as I have.

Good cheap transpo, and reliable.

by LChance from south bend, in | September 23, 2010

Too many bad reviews about this ride. It's cheap, loud, overpowered, economical, "cute" so I'm told, and just a Dang decent cheap little scoot. I get 35 to 40 mpg city driving. C'mon. It could be a straw on skates, that rules. It's not bad feeling, comfort wise, and I'm 6'6" 308 pounds. Decent for an itty bitty car. Big trunk, no mechanical probs, just a good car. Not a Caddy. Not a Yugo. I like mine very well.

First Car I've owned

by Bear from Chapel Hill, N.C. | August 22, 2006

It's sporty, yet at the same time, gets good millage, and performs well, for a car it's size. The trunk has plenty of room, and I'd reccomend it to someone without kids. Smooth ride, and tight steering wheel, just the way I like it. I give this car 4 stars.
