    Interesting Mirage Quirks!!

    Found out some interesting things about my Mirage recently.

    When the car is sitting locked and you unlock it with the fob, it will relock itself automatically if no one opens the doors.

    The second thing i found is when the wipers are on intermittant they will speed up the faster you go. I believe it increases at both 60km and 100 km/h.

    Anyone else stumble on quirks with your Mirage?

    The Filipino mirage forums has a thread similar to this... Something like "did you know that..."

    I'll try to find the thread and post some responses.

    And I found it... Too bored, i mean busy at work to translate some of these stuff, but a few of them are in english.

    Link to MPH forum thread

    This is pretty cool, and only the 4th post:
    Mitsubishi launched the Mirage as a front-wheel drive three-door hatchback in March 1978, as a response to the 1973 oil crisis
    in 2002. The Colt replaced the Mirage hatchback
    The Colt was renamed back to Mirage in 2012

    he Mirage is solely built at the Laem Chabang Industrial Estate in Chonburi, Thailand. its exported to asia ,europe and the US 4

    OEM battery is 1sm..non-maintenance free...Thailand made
    Front/Rear Shocks are Tokico
    OEM F/R Speakers are 4ohms 6.5" 15W
    windshield wipers: 22 inches and 14 inches (front) and 12 inches (rear)
    ECU is located at the drivers side underneath the dashboard
    Laminated Green windshield
    alternator is 85 amps rated

    the 3rd brake light of the GLS is LED

    you can distinguish if its a cvt or manual by looking at the lower grille of the front bumpers...

    the Mivec engine is Chain driven

    The CVT is Belt driven

    the Mirage is also known as the Space Star in the EUDM /European market


    There is only one Mirage car club in the Philippines and if you can read this you're one of the lucky ones to be part of this special club of Mirage owners and enthusiast! 4

    Is that wiper blade measurement correct?
    I want the euro style wiper blades, but they don't make them for our car yet

    A friend of mine has a Jetta TDI, I think a 2010 with just over 100,000 miles, and he's facing a recommended timing belt change at 120,000 for a cost of about $700 USD. Glad the 1.2 has a timing chain.

    Hate to burst your bubble, but the Mirage has a timing belt. See your maintenance manual.

    I think that's just a generic manual not specific to any Mitsu model.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but a quick glance in the engine bay revealed a........... chain!

    The Mirage has no belt, it has a chain.
