      I own this car. I could have purchased a more expensive car. I wanted an inexpensive car that would deliver excellent hybrid like mileage without the complexity of being a hybrid. The Mirage delivers. I average about 37 mpg in town and 44 mpg highway with my best mileage of 51 mpg.


      Does it have poor handling, yes. Is it fairly noisy at highway speeds, yes. Is the CVT annoying and a power zapping anchor, maybe but the CVT is a JATCO CVT7 which is actually a 2 speed transmission (If you use the low range "B" around town and for accelerated starts it's not bad at all).


      So for $14k I got the "ES" version which has fog lights, cruise, steering wheel audio controls, blue tooth, hands free phone operation, power windows, nicer seat materials, ac and heated front seats.


      I just made the conscious decision I was tired of being a slave to big car payments. The Mirage has a 100k powertrain warranty. So laugh all you want haters, I laugh every time my fillups are less than $20 and my monthly payments are less than $200.


      On the contrary, I hope Mitsubishi doesn't screw up the redesign with a bloated more expensive, less efficient car. I love this car.

    When we reviewed the 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage a few months ago, we absolutely hated it. Our conclusion was that if you needed a car in this segment to either pay a few hundred dollars more for a Chevy Spark or spend less for an entry-level Nissan Versa. Basically, avoid this Mitsubishi at all costs. It turns out that we weren't the only ones who despised it. Consumer Reports can often find something positive about just about any vehicle, but even the usually gentle publication struggles to find co

    Mitsubishi, which dates all the way back to 1870, is one of the oldest business collectives in Japan. Today, the various businesses that share the Mitsubishi name are largely independent of each other. The automotive unit, however, has fallen on hard times over the past few years.

    Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda

    This could have been something great. Last fall, Mitsubishi slapped its triple-diamond badge on a dainty little hatchback called Mirage, offering plenty of functionality and 44 miles per gallon on the highway, all starting at a super-low $12,995. For budget shoppers, this seemed to be a good thing – not to mention a much-needed breath of fresh air for the company's waning US automotive arm.
