2000 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
Mitsubishi subtracts from the options list and adds to the standard equipment column on its slow-selling Mirage, a front-drive subcompact. Several items previously optional are now standard on both the two-door coupe and four-door sedan. A redesigned Mirage is expected for the 2002 model year.

Interior
DE models gain several standard features: a tilt steering column, intermittent wipers, remote mirror controls, a driver’s seat height adjuster, digital clock and a trunk lamp. LS models add power windows, mirrors and locks and cruise control. A 60/40 folding rear seatback is standard on the LS, optional on the DE.

Exterior
The Mirage coupe and sedan share few body parts and have different dimensions. The coupe has a 95-inch wheelbase and 168-inch overall length, and the sedan has a 98.4-inch wheelbase and overall length of 173.6 inches. DE models move up from 13-inch tires to 14-inch this year, matching the diameter used on the LS models. LS models can be spiffed up with a new Sport Package that adds a rear spoiler, fog lamps, side sill moldings and alloy wheels.

Under the Hood
The DE coupe comes with a 92-horsepower 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The DE sedan ditches the 1.5-liter and gets the 113-horsepower 1.8-liter also found in the LS coupe and sedan. Both engines come with a standard five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
