About Mitsubishi Mirage

There were many changes Mitsubishi needed to make to improve the Mirage subcompact, and nowhere on the list was a trunk. But that's exactly what the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 is: a 4-door sedan version of the much-maligned hatchback Mitsubishi brought to the U.S. market a couple years ago. Along with the trunked version, Mitsubishi added a new audio system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There's refreshed exterior and interior styling, and the engine is smoother at idle. Still, the list of shortcomings remains long, and while the Mirage offers good fuel economy and a decent ride, none of it makes up for its underlying crudity, especially considering that the little Mitsu sedan's price and features pit it against the much nicer Nissan Versa.

"I bought this car in June of 2014, trim level ES. Reasons for choosing: Price, Extras included in the price, gas efficiency and engine with timing chain. As I have now passed 222 thousand miles, you can understand how much money it has saved me. This car has never entered a mechanic shop other than to take the complimentary oil change and to change CVT fluid. Summary of things I have done myself until now are: four sets of tires, spark plugs, oil and filter changes on intervals of 12-15 thousand miles (special oil), 2 sets of front brake pads and a set of brake shoes. This car redefined the word "reliability" for me. It still runs with the original oil viscosity 0W20 (ask your mechanic what this means). Thank you Mitsubishi! Also thanks to AmsOil, Wagner brakes and General tires for their great products related to my wonderfull car expirience."

"If you dream of being a race car driver this car isnt for you If your commute regularly turns into a competition this car isnt for you If your self esteem is tied to the brands you own this car is likely not for you If you are looking for a solid reliable car this is an excellent value. I can easily pay cash for any new car made in the world...but I hate to waste money. This car fits my needs with excellent value and nothing I don't need."

Pros: "Fuel milage, standard options, quality for money"

Cons: "Not very smooth engine, bad on windy days"

"I tested the car 2 times before I bought it, with 3 total adults in the car it struggled, but once I got out on my own it was a different car, and for the record, I have a 2017 SE with Rockford audio package. The engine has some valve clatter but I'm sure it is due to the electronically adjustable lifters. The engine is not smooth but that's to be expected from a 3 cylinder. The steering is very light, the car is very easy to park, and the fuel mileage is crazy. I'm running about 53 mpg on the highway, and around 40 in the city. Since this car is only around 2,000lb it is not nice to drive on windy days. If you know you are going to buy a small, low powered car you will be happy with it, but if you are expecting to get a BMW you are not going to be happy, just like some other car reviewers."
