    Those Chrysler Torqueflite 3spd autos were very dependable. My Mom had it in her '92 Plymouth Acclaim. It was getting hard to shift out of Park, but otherwise still shifted smooth as silk going down...

    The problem for me with the eclipse cross is not only the terrible name, but the fact that it uses a turbocharger and GDI fuel injection. Neither technology is a winning scenario for engine longevity...

    My mother owns a 2015 OS GT she bought new. She loves it and it's been a problem free car, currently with 50k miles. My dad bought a new 2019 OS ES. He's a truck guy, but he thinks it's a great...

    Looks like the Mirage facelift did the sales numbers some good. Overall sales numbers for the brand are abysmal though. I've been wondering for several years now how much longer Mitsubishi will hold...

    I did have a hard time getting the dealer to replace the axle. In fact, they never did for me. I discovered the issue at the time I had 4 new tires installed that were slightly wider. They claimed...

    I'm late to this thread, but I bought my 2014 ES CVT new in the summer of 2014 for $11,900, plus TTT and dealer fee, with an OTD price of $13,300. The MSRP was $16,265, so it felt like a great deal...

    Axle still an issue on 2021?

    I've not been active on this site in a few years, since my 2014 Mirage ES was totalled in an accident and I replaced it with a new 2018 Hyundai Elantra. I've been having A LOT of reliability issues...

    I read on another thread that a new starter replacement can run $1,100 on the Mirage, which blew my mind. So I looked up the average repair cost with AAA. Yep, they apparently are correct. Yikes.

    Looks like they made the 2021 carbon package that's available on the 2021 LE trim into its own trim level for 2022. Replaced the LE with SE designation, and bumped the 2021 SE up to a reintroduced GT...

    It's not a problem if you don't mind an off center steering wheel, a car that tracks at an angle going down the road, squirly handling at higher speed on crappy pavement, and wasting money replacing...

    I absolutely agree about the insurance coverage. It feels like a waste of money because it's not something You use everyday, but when you do need it, boy are you glad to have it!

    I think it's priced appripriately at the discounted prices I've been seeing. $8K for the base ES, $12k for the GT. Sounds great to me.

    Progressive cut me that nice check and the title was signed over. They told me it'd be going to auction.

    Kermit was a 2014, so it came with the fender mounted marker lamps.

    That list of features reminds me of when Hyundai advertised the Excel has having "carpeting" and "reclining front seats". Grasping at straws much?

    I noticed the same thing when quoting a few different vehicles. The Mirage was a little more costly, but not as bad as what you're saying. When I traded my Versa for the Mirage, my premium went up a...

    I like the look of the Eclipse Cross, but it's a first year model, so that can mean problems. I'm also not a fan of it using a small displacement turbo motor, yet getting the same fuel economy as the...

    His excuse was "I didnt see them cuz their car is black." Yes, that was his excuse. So, he was probably playing with his phone.
