Great little car!

I bought mine new in 2016. It's done almost 200,000 clicks, travelled from Sydney to Broken Hill a few times and lot's of places in between. Hasn't broken down once in all this time. I just keep up the regular servicing and it keeps delivering. Go Eric!! (that's what we've named it). Show details

For the money, it's a great car

I bought a demo model in 2018 for a crazy $10,850. 5 years later with 50,000 km on the odo, I haven't had any issues at all. For the price, the features it has, and its reliability, you really can't go past it. A couple of things to note:
- have the tyre pressure up to 38 instead of the recommended 36 - it helped the drive quite a bit (a tyre place put me onto this).
- use the B on the CVT auto to help slow down the car so you don't chew through the front brake pads (the dealer put me onto this) Show details

Lovely small car

This is our second Mirage & as trouble-free as our 2013 model was. It was classed as the most economical car in Aus, when it came out in 2013 & it's light fuel consumption is really appreciated now with $2 a litre plus prices around. It will fit 4 adults or 2 adults & 3 children in it, plus a case or 2 in the boot. Very reasonable 2nd hand prices now. Show details

Reliable cheap to run

Purchased a sedan in jan 2014 new just for local ruuning around. Gets good economy 6l/100km around town, 4.8l/100km open road. The sedans are longer and wider than the hatch so quite roomy for a small car. Now done 80,000kms with no issues. Show details

Not a good car

Test drived a new one in 2018. The guy wanted to sell me a demo for $12990. I can tell you the only good thing was the low price. No good acceleration. Large amount of engine noise. The car felt very underpowered. Better cars around if you are happy to pay a little more money. Suzuki or Honda much better Show details

Affordable, cheap and reliable little car

I have had this car since 2013 and it has been great. Nothing major has gone wrong with it and has so far only needed regular maintenance. It’s very cheap to run and actually a bit punchy considering it’s size and cylinders. The dash is a bit cheap and not great plastic and the engine noise can be a bit loud at times. Other than this it is a great little car.  Show details

This is is a perfectly safe car which I bought a few years ago & I love driving EVERY DAY

Every review from USA is rubbish, MY Mitsubishi PINK HATCH has given me & my family in Sydney Australia nothing but safety & pleasure! The steering is unbelievable, the breaks in an emergency lock immediately! I feel save in my MM which I drive every day of every year on local town roads, highways, motorways! I use my car everyday, I service it every 6 months with the same mechanic who also advises on any replacement tyres etc. Latest from the mechanic was that SHE was in good condition, so keep up the regular services & "SHE" will last me a long time! Show details

Cheap cheerful car to get you from A to B

Overall driving experience is nothing to shout about. Main thing is it's a cheap car to buy on the second hand market. I think the suspension is pretty appalling but for the price I suppose I cannot expect top quality. Cheap to run from rego, insurance and fuel efficiency basis.

Most economic and reliable car I've had

My manual Mitsubishi Mirage use n fraction of the petrol my previous car used. Services are reasonable and it's a reliable car with built in Bluetooth, and ample space. When back seats are folded down, a washing machine fits inside. We have transported many bulky things in this little car. I recently replaced tyres and they were cheap. Great car! Show details
