Thread: the cherry tomato / blood clot :: 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    the cherry tomato / blood clot
    2015
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage
    Red
    Manual

    i bought it with 8k miles and as of 8/22/2019 it has 72k miles

    high altitude note. for me at least, in the mountains after about 8-9k feet the car really begins to struggle to keep speed on an incline in fourth or fifth gear unless you doing 80 mph. otherwise prepare to dance through the gears as you try to get up a hill at 11,000 feet. so glad i have a manual.

    Hello benwerks and welcome to the forum. Thanks for making a Garage entry. Don't forget about the forum Fuel Economy Log. Use it to show everyone how the Mirage is easy on gas.

    A red 2015 manual? That would look great in red. Let's see some pictures.

    72499 changed the transmission oil today with 75-90. shifting pretty smooth at slow speeds and highway speeds. smoother than before at least. just over a quart of oil that came out and it was almost black. no metal or anything else. i also bought a steering wheel cover because the leather is wearing. thinking about new shift knobs now
