Thread: Mirage #3: Appliance Car :: 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage SE (base stripper) (Garage entry)

  1. General Information
    Mirage #3: Appliance Car
    2014
    Mitsubishi
    Mirage SE (base stripper)
    White
    5-speed

    The holy grail! Base Canadian Mirage with no options: no AC, manual locks (no remote), wind-up rear windows, manual HVAC settings, no cruise, etc. Yet another cheap, used scratch 'n' dent special with high kms for its age (174k).

    Details

    Colour: Frigidaire White. A littlle banged up, with rust creeping around the edges.

    Front carpet: 50% sodium chloride

    •  

    Aftermarket bluetooth thingy!

    •  

    Stiff clutch pedal.

    •  

    Yes. Possible fubar rear axle.

    •  

    Stock Enasaves in decent shape. Two are much newer, so I will have to investigate rear axle alignment.

    And .... 2 weeks later, I finally got around to putting the summer tires back on!

    We had freak snow flurries a week ago, but nothing accumulated...

    Not counting the fake snowbanks installed by the movie crews downtown!

    Cool! What are they filming? That Blazer & pickup reminds me of Stranger Things.

    They were doing one of those rom-com feel good Christmas type things for Netflix. Had the downtown cordoned off for a couple of weeks. I recognized some of the actors from Brooklyn 99, and supposedly Chevy Chase showed up for a cameo.

    Happy anniversary...

    This month marks the 3rd anniversary of ownership of Mirage #3!

    This is the longest I've gone in my adult life without having bought or sold another car.

    Life has gotten busier in the past 3 years, and I've pretty much abandoned the habit of perusing the local ads for cheap, efficient cars. Are my flipski days behind me?? Is this my forever car?

    ---

    MPG over the past 3 years: 62 MPG US = 3.8 L/100 km.

    Horrible! Needs a big aerodynamic tail on the back.
