    Someone here installed LEDs and it made a big difference. I think Laceygirl did this, and maybe some others.
    Sylvania LED light DE3175 fits and works well. Much brighter than the original. About $7-8.

    Do you mean this?

    Amazon: SYLVANIA DE3175 31mm Festoon White LED Bulb





    Amazon currently lists this at $4.84. Is this something you are currently using, Mitsuko? If so, could you share your views on using it?

    This is what I installed:

    The one you found Eggman may be an earlier one? Mine was $7.99 at O'Riley Auto Parts. Anyway, I easily installed it yesterday; it is bigger than the factory bulb it is replacing but fits perfectly. It noticeably brightens the cabin with a typical for LED bright white light.

    My old car was a 2000 Buick LeSabre which lit up like a Christmas tree inside, so maybe I am more sensitive to the dimmer light in the Mirage.

    Recommend doing it if you feel you need a bit more light since it is not too expensive and easy to change.

    They do. I buy it every summer when Canadian Tire has it on sale for 99 cents. Sometimes it comes in pine scent. Weird, I know.

    I also use the tabs sometimes in the summer.

    But you have to remember to keep the right stuff in the tank!!!

    I bet Mitsubishi would say you have to use the bulb specified for the car to avoid problems like that.

    I read recently that the German firm that designed the 1200 cc engine that is in my 2015 Mirage DE also designed a 4-cylinder 1600cc engine. If Mitsubishi were to introduce a US version of the Mirage with that engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, bigger rear drums (or disc brakes) and a few suspension tweaks they would have a "pocket rocket" that could compete with a lot of other offerings. I, for one, would buy that in a heartbeat.

    What is the MUSA response to that suggestion?

    I have not noted any problems, maybe it was an issue with earlier models?

    Because then they couldn't charge $17xxx for it.
