In the article, they stated the wheel bearings and starter were replaced under warranty but well after 100k miles? Did they extend a warranty?
    It's not uncommon for White Bear to offer a lifetime/unlimited miles powertrain warranty for their vehicles, but I've haven't read the fine print for mine. Wheel bearings & starter wouldn't fall under a power train warranty. Owners may have paid extra for more warranty coverage, too?

    I had the same thought as you about all that. Regardless, the 414,000 mile Mirage is a good example of the durability of these small cars. I had my reservations at the time of purchase. The fleet of cars Fummins was taking care of eased my mine at the time, & that's still the case almost 4 years later now.

    Off the top of my head with this car @414K miles and the "cheap plastic car" here (is it still owned and operated by the forum member?) statistically our rides should be good for an average of 400K miles (560K klicks),

    A larger sample size would help of course (it's not like Mirages have sold Corolla like numbers) but time is showing how good these little cars were engineered and assembled. I'm proud and happy to own 2 of these little beasts.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    Commenting here after just seeing the title. Haven't read the story or other comments yet. My first thought is "wow, that's some A+ upkeep/maintenance on that vehicle. Nicely done."

    Now I'm on to read about how he did it and pick up some tips.

    BTW Richard is the owner and one terrific guy with an an amazing staff. we went there to buy a car for my wife outlander sport, Richard help use while my sales rep Sunny Yoke (real name) him and Richard know sign language to deal with a couple with hearing issues. that day every sales staff assisted us and he has an amazing team there! Last summer we took advantage of the St Paul Saints Free tickets and i got to see my brother in the first time in years but its probably because of my heart failure in March 21.

    Hey Everyone,
    I'm not sure if this was already mentioned, but, I just went on White Bear Mitsubishi Webpage and found out that this famous Plasma Purple Mirage (with 414,518 miles) is now for sale in the used car section!

    Here is the link:

    https://www.whitebearmitsubishi.com/...83f4792e1b.htm

    They want $4933.

    I live only about a little over an hour from this dealer and am tempted to go there and check it out!

    $5k? Are they out of their minds? That's what you'd pay for a Mirage with half that many miles.

    I'd go buy it if it wasn't that kind of crazy money. I do have a 80,000 mile engine and CVT from a wrecked 2017 SE G4 that need a home that I can't seem to find for them!

    True but this one IMO is an exceptional one and an interesting piece of history. This is already well known to be taken care of unlike other used mirage with unknown history of maintenance and repair.

    I'll buy one knowing that I get a piece of mind AND drive it until 1,000,000 miles. By then, sell it back to WB dealer to get a special discount for hopeful 2032 Mirage. Win-win!

    Say you’ll buy it if it’s a certified pre owned so you get the “lifetime power train warranty”.

    If you lived closer, I would suggest you making them an offer. That's a car that should have its mileage plastered all over it & be driven around around the Twin Cities! I'm actually surprised White Bear is not taking that type of approach to that car in some way.

    I think a forum member needs to step up & buy that car! Don't point at me, however. I only buy manuals!
