    I'd recommend having it checked. I think they improved things since the initial years, but I would want to be sure.

    The front camber of the wine red Mirage

    Both cars go down the road well, although mine is the black one and I only took a quick drive in the wifes wine red.

    I asked for color and they said the printer only prints black and white. I can tell though just the front of the red one was red. But I talked to the tech who had them on the rack and he said no issues.

    I asked if he's seen misaligned ones and he said he had.
    The front camber of the wine red Mirage is even a greater mess than mine is (wine red also).

    What were they thinking when producing these suspensions?

    Your rear specs look good. Your front could actually be aligned to bring the toe in a bit, but it's still in spec according to the sheet. I typically just see toe in preferable to toe out especially in the front

    Ok, will take it to another dealer, since this one sent me out to a local shop and was kind of crapy.

    I got an alignment after being hit in the rear. Only bumper and rear hatch damage. The car pulled to the left after that and I noticed the front left tire was near bald at 24k miles.

    Your rear right toe is out of spec.

    HydroJim is right - your rear alignment is off, and probably explains your tire wear.

    Documents from my dealer put the Mirage rear toe alignment range from -002' to +017'. The service manual specs state the range in millimeters not degrees.

    Also, just to be clear the rear axle is not adjustable on the Mirage. The only way to properly correct rear axle alignment problems is to replace the axle.

    It appears the shop that did your alignment is using some *very* generous specs. You should consider having another shop perform a proper alignment check for you. With a proper alignment check, it will be documented that your rear axle is out of alignment and you can start working toward a replacement. I would expect a replacement to be paid under the insurance coverage of the person who hit you. Since your Mirage has been in an accident, I wouldn't expect Mitsubishi to cover an axle replacement.

    I stopped by the dealership this morning and spoke with the service tech about the issue. He took down all of my info and said he'd forward it to the warranty dept. and give me a call once they respond.
