I’ve put 12,000 miles on the Mirage and I’m closing in on a year of ownership with it. Today I will go in depth about the ownership experience of the much hated Mirage.
That is all.
Dropped $30 a can of 3M adhesive remover. Been wanting to debadge the Shitsubishi. 3M adhesive remover is absolutely amazing stuff. Turned the old badge glue into mucus like liquid that I was able to remove very easily.
Bored and have tons of 3M carbon fiber vinyl left. So, suppose I had to do the first Mirage rice mod. Actually breaks up nice on the orange if I do say so myself.
We have some yuck weather coming in. So what do I do? A full detail on the Shitsubishi of course!
My dad is in town, so had to go visit him a few cities away. Kind of looks nice in this shot.
Sorry I’ve been away everybody! Worked the last two weeks straight on the road, going from Ohio all the way to Massachusetts and everywhere in between. Work has been nuts and life has been wild.
It’s crazy, but the Mirage has covered almost 1,000 miles in the few weeks I’ve owned it. There’s things I absolutely adore about it, things that I enjoy about it, and things I absolutely loathe about it. I’m going to delve into each one today, and in a few days hopefully have a video edited and live for your…
Ahh yes, so called “journalists” love to hate on the newest generation of the Mitsubishi Mirage. There’s plenty of reasons to hate this car, with only 78 horsepower generated from a 1.2 liter three cylinder, it hasn’t any scrap of sportiness whatsoever. However, it isn’t supposed to. In fairness, what this car is…
Introducing my Shitsubishi, a 2017 fully loaded Mirage. 40s in the MPG range, priced very well, and warranty coverage until 2024 or 125,000 miles. Features are decent for a $13,000 car. Apple CarPlay, backup camera, and full power windows and locks are decent equipment for a cheap shit car.
The Mirage doesn’t have a locking steering column because Mitsubishi knows most will be repo’d when the owners don’t make their payments, and it’ll make it easier to tow.
Why does Waze want to send me around the track instead of on it?
Full disclosure: Mitsubishi wanted me to drive this car so badly, they sold it to someone, who sold it to someone, who bought it as a throw in along with a Suzuki SX4. He then loaned it to a friend in exchange for the Ford Taurus SHO who then, after making me drive to the ghetto, only to be accosted by ladies of the…
No, it wasn’t a bright neon color. It’s grey :( Cost under $12k out the door with all fees included and a CVT though, so whatever. It’s my sister’s and it’s everything I was hoping for. Put your foot down and nothing happens! Turn the wheel and the whole thing feels like it’s going to tip over! IT HAS A SPARE!!!
In the first edition of the Style Smackdown series, and in weeks to come, I will be going through Car & Driver’s vehicle rankings by segment and rating them myself. Where Car and Driver rank the respective vehicles on criteria like interior ergonomics, cornering prowess, and ride quality, I will be ranking them based…
11. As tends to be the case, the FCA booth professionals were the most not unattractive.
There will be no 2016 Mitsubishi Mirage. This makes me has a sad. Fortunately, Mitsubishi know that the market won’t survive without at least one honest cheap car, so they’re bringing it back in 2017! Yay! Neon all the things!
Well it took a while (especially because half way through this one phone of mine died and took a few pics with it) but I finally got a picture of every colour of Mitsubishi Mirage there is in Canada. Sure, the Mitsubishi is a terrible car, but I have a soft spot for it.
