Since I have owned this old clunker very little has gone wrong with it.
It leaks oil and must be topped up often, on a weekly basis.
The carburetor is worn out, and when it's cold, it will not idle well.
Other than that, this has been an absolutely fantastic old piece of American machinery.
As for the interior, I can't complain. I bought it with no functioning odometer, but I think the stuck odometer reads about 79 000 km. The previous owner said it had high mileage, but who cares, old american cars are cheap to fix.
The only real problem that I have had with this car is the wipers. Mirada wipers are weak and flimsy, and Chrysler no longer makes parts. We had to buy a second P.O.S. Mirada for 400 for the wiper part. So don't buy a Mirada unless you are sure that the wipers work.
I love this old beast. It's a perfect mixture of luxury and sports car. Not a lot of power, but the sound of the engine and just the overall unique look turns a lot of heads.
I love this car because it is really rare; 1474 1982 CMX's were all that were sold. This car turns lots of heads with its gills and 10 spoke wheels.
The interior is great and stylish, with the challenger like sports wheel and white leather seats. Typical of American auto producers of the early 80's, the quality of the build is not great and cheaply produced, but still cool and pretty solid. I replaced the wood grain dash with a brushed chrome one, which looks really good. The gauges are easy to read, and the only drawback to the dash is that this car should have a tachometer.
The transmission has 3 gears. The first two are a little sluggish, but the 3rd really gets it going. The horsepower is an unimpressive 318, but the torque is a pleasing 245.
One of the most comfortable old boats that you will ever drive. Extremely easy to see out of, and great for just cruising. I bought this car from a body man, so the body is perfect.
