Thread: Eric's Mirage :: 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 ES (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    Eric's Mirage
    2017
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage G4 ES
    White
    5-speed Manual

    This 2017 Mirage G4 is my first car. Purchased two days ago for $6.5K CAD with 46000km on the clock. 5-speed manual. Already very impressed with the fuel economy after driving it to work and back. Rebuilt status due to an accident of the previous owner that affected the front left side. Was repaired by his insurance and they seem to have done a decent job. After 48 hours with the car, I'm already very pleased.

    Details

    Has some weird panel gaps from body work on the front left side but otherwise in perfect shape.

    Spotless

    Aftermarket Kenwood head unit w/ Bluetooth.

    Hello Eric and welcome to the forum.
    Speck was a 2015 Mirage ES.

    Replaced with a 2022 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor using the insurance payout & company Green Car incentive. No gas price anxiety, itís charged at home for around $4 - even less with solar. No oil or oil filter changes. No tune-ups - no spark plugs, engine air filters or squeaky snorkels. No rattly exhaust or emissions controls. No alternator, accessory belt, or timing chain. No piston slap or overpriced CVT. The benefits go on & on.

    Efficiency pays.

    Welcome to the forum! Good to see a manual G4 here! The only thing I can advise is that you change the transmission fluid in the gearbox (easy to do, just a drain no filter, and refill until it dribbles out the side filler hole). Also your future self will thank you if you order and carry a clutch cable in the car. There have a been a few manual transmission forum members that have had theirs break so having one on hand can save you a bunch of headache. They aren't that expensive.

    Welcome! Good to see another 5 speed G4 on the forum. I do believe the rarest combo on here.

    The majority of members (and owners) have the hatch. Note where the G4 is on the forum logo, lol. And most have the cvt, regardless of body style. And now Mitsubishi has stopped offering the 5 speed for 2023. So enjoy your unique ride! I've found my 2017 (bought used) to be super reliable and fuel efficient.

    For sure, the overall number of manual transmission G4's here in North America was extremely limited during their run. I have a 2019 OS/RVR/ASX with a manual transmission (last year it was offered). The number of 5 speeds shipped to North America was less than 500 for the final year for that model and since the G4 sales have always been super low I wouldn't be surprised if the 5 speed G4 total in Canada was less than 100 for that year.
