Agree 100%. The Mitsubishi 3A92 1.2 3 cylinder is a far better engine that the Nissan 1.6 for reliability. There is a reason that Nissan is still having Mitsubishi build their Kei class cars even after the "mileage" scandal. Nissan under CEO Ghosen's leadership has devoted very little resources in super efficient internal combustion engines whereas Mitsubishi focused on efficiency. Which engine is more likely to deliver 250K plus of trouble free driving? We have real world examples here on the forum that 200K+ in a Mirage is not a fluke but is able to deliver this kind of longevity as a norm.
