I hate it
I bought this Mirage in 2001 with 141,000 miles on it from a dealer I was told I could trust. I was going to buy a 1991 Acura Legend with 180K on it for a higher price than the Mirage that day, but this dealer talked me into the Mitsubishi. I had a Dodge Colt once, built by Mitsubishi, and it was a great car, so I let him talk me into it.
He sold me an extended warranty on the car for 2 years or 20,000 miles, and said he would have any part of the drive train replaced if it went bad within the warranty period.
The car must have been beaten, because I drove it from Missouri to California, and the tranny went out on it when I got there. I told him I was going to Cali with it, and he said if it gave a problem, he would pay to have it fixed. Well, $1400 for a transmission, and he couldn't cover it. He accepted my first call with the complaint, and said he'd look into having it fixed, then he refused all my other calls.. I had to abandon the car because I didn't have the 1400 to fix it. I sued him and got my warranty money back, but that was only $300. I don't know if it was beaten or not, but I only know it left me stranded 2100 miles from home, and I will never buy a Mitsubishi product again.
I wish I had bought the Acura instead.
This car was very slow in taking off. It was your basic vehicle with no cruise in it. Not good for long drives.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
