    This. After I bought my Mirage and discovered very quickly that I liked it, I decided I would consider buying a new one once it hit 100,000 miles and started having problems.

    It hit 100,000 miles...

    There are a few in my neck of the woods...but not very many.

    I am not sure about the 'bad resale' argument, either. I paid $14k for my '15 ES manual (this was long before the spring of 2016 "fire sale").

    It now has over 137,000 miles. Given it's excellent...

    Could be damage to the undercarriage due to hitting something in the road, or driving the car off the road. I found a car like this for sale at a wrecking yard one time. It was in beautiful...

    I'd love a Sand Yellow 2021 top-spec car with the plaid seats and a 5-speed. But I am sure Mitsubishi won't build me one...:mad:

    Lol! Yeah, this video pretty much describes every forecast around here from December to February. Endless predictions of 'snowpocalypse'. You will have to go to YouTube to watch it.

    Sort of unusual. A very dry November...the third driest on record. Typical December, meaning 40-45 degrees and raining. Generally cold, wet January...so far. We just got a dusting of snow.

    Open Fumoto. Drain oil. Remove Fumoto. Measure how much additional oil comes out.

    I'd guess it wouldn't be much more than a few ounces, especially given the tiny size of the Mirage's oil pan.

    He didn't have to give anything. That amount is like ten average people giving their entire yearly salary.

    Sheeeesh...I'll bet people b!tch about the Christmas presents he buys for them, too. :)

    Yeah, this sometimes happens with these cars. Mine did almost the same thing a couple weeks ago, but additionally threw a CEL shortly after it began to run smoothly. The CEL self-resolved after...

    Great read. Though I suspect this car is an ES Navi...so it's probably not going to be a rental or fleet kind of car. I suspect it was a private owner vehicle that was...as the author...

    Maybe spot-welded originally, and the welds disintegrated? Nice fix, but for me it would have been pop rivet time! :)

    Don't limit yourself to local yards. Most large wrecking yards will ship nationwide. If you get each part you need in the color you need, painting will not be necessary. It will just be a matter...

    Replaced my front brake pads at 135,377 miles. They were previously done at 96,116 miles back in June of 2018, which means these pads lasted 39,261 miles.

    Not bad as far as pad life. They lasted...

    Stoopid deer! Glad your lady is okay, Mullet. :)

    My Mirage has surprisingly few bumps and bruises given it's 135k miles and duty as a delivery car.

    A little over a year after I bought it,...

    My Mirage is driven about 500-600 miles a week...every week. It doesn't sit much, and has a fairly fresh battery.

    The cam sensor isn't too hard to get to on these cars, as it is on the end of the...

    Went to go to work yesterday, and my Mirage had a little trouble starting. It cranked longer than usual, and when it finally started it ran rough and sputtered for a few seconds. Once it cleared...

    Not by much, and I wouldn't be surprised if it were the exact same oil. $14.88/5 = $2.97 per quart. $29.99/10 = $3.00 per quart.

    The author of the C&D article hates (like REALLY hates) the Mirage anyway. So much so that Jalopnik called him out for his absurd hyperbole.

    Been saying it for weeks now. Even Car & Driver has it wrong...they state the new look is for the 2020 models. The '20 hatch is a clone, the '20 G4 has a new blacked out 'eggcrate' style grille...
