2014 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 GLS 1.2


- Had difficulty operating the GPS.

- The rear was hit by a trailer truck last year. Although the dent was not that big, the left tail light was shattered; had to stay in the dealer for more than a month.

General Comments:

This is known as the Attrage in other countries, but is known as the Mirage G4 here in the Philippines since the name Attrage can be confused with "to move backwards" in Filipino. This is an alternative to the more common Vios.

This is my friend's car. She got it from her parents as a gift. She drives it to school and to anywhere in the city almost everyday. Me and my other friends would get to ride in that car from time to time.

Engine performance is okay for city driving and is enough for your daily commute. Well who needs fast pickup and speed in a megacity with very bad traffic though? It's just a bit of a struggle when you drive the car on expressways. It has only been on the expressway twice in its whole life so far though. The positive side is that it is very fuel efficient.

Comfort is so-so. It's a bit cramped at the back. The backseat is not meant for big people. Air-con works very good though. It has a climate control system and a push start button which are only found usually on high end cars.

Radio is very good. It is also touch screen and you can use your phone hands free. You can play your iPod without having to connect it since there is Bluetooth.

It's a good car. If you want an alternative to the Vios, then this car is for you.

1982 Mitsubishi Mirage Colt GL 1.2


I love the car then, now and forever!


IC regulator and rectifier were replaced with new ones only after 27 years!

The intake manifold was patch after water leaked.

Timing belt and belt tensioner replaced.

General Comments:

This car is very economical.

There is power when you need it.

For a compact Japanese car the cabin is spacious and seats are comfortable.

The engine is very quiet even at 100+kph speeds.

The interior is like brand new. Original upholstery and carpets. The dashboard is practically brand new!

The engine receives regular oil change every 3000kms with synthetic oil. Since 1982 the engine has never been brought down for overhaul!
