1998 Mitsubishi Mirage Marion 1.3 petrol from South Africa


Best Hatchback car!


The electric window of the driver seat, makes a load sound when opening. Before it was working 100%, now it sounds like I have a hammer hitting the interior frame of the door.

When climbing a steep hill, the car seems to heat up.

There is a limit or blind spot when looking between the front window and side window.

General Comments:

The comfort of the car is excellent! Has some advanced technology, especially from other Mitsubishi models and Japanese cars.

Steering/handling is alright, just try not to over do it on corners!

Body kits can be easily modified with Evo-kits :).

1998 Mitsubishi Mirage Mivec VR 1.6 16v from Cyprus


A high revving performance car giving lots of fun


The only thing I have worries about is the drivers seat is wearing a little bit.

General Comments:

This car is incredible for a 1.6l engine, it may not be that quick under 5200rpm, but when it gets there it goes.

I have got coil-over suspension on mine that blesses the car with so much grip.

The extra carbon fibre inside makes the interior look better.

This comment concerns mainly people in Cyprus.

I notice that the field reserved for dealer service is blank.

Probably the owner of the car did not seek the services of the main dealer. I can honestly say that their service is second to none. Not only the service manager is walking encyclopidia on the subject, but very helpfull indeed.

Try giving him a call on 24 636 177.

1998 Mitsubishi Mirage 4 Door DE 1.5 from North America


Could be worth the Investment


There's a Vibrating noise coming from the front of the car, it only happens when I hit the gas hard.

General Comments:

The car is easy to deck out, the import parts for it are unlimited.

Its very fuel efficient, while still maintaining power at high speeds. I have got it up to 120MPH with little problem.

Although its very plain looking its cheap and with some invested money and time you can create a car to be proud of.

1998 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 SOHC from North America


A big fun to drive go-kart


There is a small rattle coming from the headliner over the passenger side door.

The driver's side window will not close completely. It goes up far enough to keep out the elements, but not the noise.

It had a faulty valve stem when I took it off the lot.

General Comments:

The car handles great, it is easy to seriously exceed the speed limit significantly on curvy roads.

The engine is very quiet and has a decent power band, but needs more torque.

The air conditioning really saps the power from the engine, especially if you have passengers with you.

The factory stereo system is wonderful.

Overall it is very comfortable and extremely fuel efficient. You never feel bad about living with a "cheap" car.

I have a Mirage and it feels weak on the highway trying to keep up with highway speed! I need a better car!
