    It's an automatic. While I am generally not a fan of automatics I know the aw4 is extremely reliable so it's okay. Nice for rock crawling. I was using it as a truck for awhile so towing a lot. I...

    My other Jeep is a 2000 Cherokee on 32s with stock gears. I really would like to regear it since it just kills it and I can only use Drive. But, it's not priority. Towing my camper with the 32s on...

    I recently bought a 1995 Wrangler. It has the 2.5L engine and manual trans. Sitting on 35'' tires it is quite possibly the slowest thing I have driven. It was regeared to 4.88 and it will get to 30...

    Where in Upstate NY?

    I am 100% a fan of snow tires here in NY. I'd rather buy that extra set of tires (and save wear on my "summer"/all season tires) and not need them than end up stranded or in...

    May be a bit late to the game here, but I just use a set of tire spoons to mount/dismount tires. A little bit of coolant makes a good bead lube. And it's a lot easier on the wheels than the HF tire...

    I'd go with slightly taller - just for a bit more ground clearance. Nokian makes the best snow tires IMO.

    People in Subarus on all season tires will get confused as your Mirage passes them with...

    Mitsubishi started turning things around. I don't see the buyout from Nissan being a good thing. It's hard enough to get parts for a Mitsubishi (seems they have a lot of dealer only stuff) and I'm...

    The delivery job is not an uber job?

    The SPI engine is okay if you keep the EGR working properly and you prevent it from overheating.

    You are in Minersville PA? I was down in Tremont in June at...

    Apparently Mitsubishi did something right with the sedans - I'm seeing them all over now!

    Completely different vehicle, but I tow my popup camper with my Ford Focus. Front wheel drive cars work pretty well for towing. 33MPG couldn't be beat AFAIC!

    Time for someone to get craft and make one!

    Though, for transporting bikes I prefer hitch racks.

    I'm hoping I can pick one up - used - before gas prices go back up.

    Should be able to sell it for what I paid if gas goes up too much. Or save a bunch of money.

    Woah ... Pat Goss is a bit off about why DI engines carbon the intake valves.

    It's not, specifically, blowby .. .and blowby is absolutely not caused by direct injection.

    The problem is, direct ...

    If that's all that came through the PCV system after 6600 miles - especially on an engine that is always spinning so fast thanks to gearing - I think your engine is quite tight!

    Would be...

    It is looking more and more like my next vehicle purchase is going to be a pickup. Or something that can tow 6000 pounds. Hmmm.

    Still browsing CL for the right priced Mirage, though.

    The salesguy I talked to back in 2013 still works at the Mitsubishi dealer so I am not going back. I feel bad tire kicking.

    People get too worked up over this stuff!

    Volkswagen did it to provide a product that was more reliable (no DEF garbage) and provided better fuel economy.

    Mitsubishi overinflated the tires. Big...

    A Geo Metro towing a 1300 pound trailer, makes me feel not so bad about towing an 800 pound popup with my Ford Focus

    There's no doubt that a Mirage is more green than, say, a Prius.

    The new spark looks nice. I took a look at an owners manual and it appears it does not use a rubber band to drive the camshafts. I thought for sure they were going to go with some sort of timing belt...

    The GT needs a manual transmission or a big-boy automatic. Not the snowmobile transmission.

    But the 17 looks pretty nice!

    Suzuki pulled out 4 or 5 years ago right?

    There seems to be one per large metro area here in NY. Utica doesn't have a Mitsubishi dealer. I was surprised when I saw one Mirage in Utica. I'm...
