Great little car!

by Rick from Des Moines, Iowa on Fri Oct 13 2006

When new the car averaged 42 mpg on the highway and 34 around town. Thirteen years later it still gets 40 mpg on the highway and 30 around town. Acceleration is spirited but not neck snapping. It's small size makes it easy to drive around town. It is easy to drive in the snow. It is not a great car to drive long distances. The seats do not provide enough support. Overall, mechanically the car has had no major issues. Besides the usual maintenance, here is what had to be replaced: Battery after 18 months Air conditioner compressor clutch at year 8 Water pump at year 7 Brake shoes at 40,000 miles at year 3 Tires every 20,000 miles (and I drive very mildly) A few days ago the seat belt retractor stopped working. The trunk is reasonably large for a small car. The engine layout allows easy access to spark plugs, oil filter, etc.

It may be more difficult these days to buy a $12,000 subcompact car than it is a $60,000 luxury machine.

There are dozens of small cars that sell for between $10,000 and $12,000. You could spend hours comparing and test driving and still not find the right car.

On the surface, this week's test car looks like a fine entry into the crowded subcompact field. Mitsubishi gave the Mirage CoupeL S a stylish new body, an attractive set of five-spoke alloy wheels, and made it available in a rainbow of bright and sporty new colors.

But a closer look reveals that the Mirage doesn't quite measure up to competitors such as the Geo Prizm, Saturn SL1 and Ford Escort.


The Coupe LS version - the up-level... Read More
