Fuel Efficient 2 Dr That Needs Power — This car started out as my wife's humble little commuter, but started to get transformed into a teenage boys toy. Lots of upgrades available, from drive train to interior to exterior. But these upgrades are a waist of time. The true purpose of this car is to be a commuter, not a racer.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel Efficient

Cons: Lack of Power

My Mirage — This 1999 Mirage was my second "first car" since i have it since i was a freshman at the university. This car was and still is a reliable piece of hardware. It has endured various car collisions and it keeps on ticking. Overall it was my favorite car since it was lightweight, maneuverable and cool looking. Never modified the engine so i guess it must be averaging about 120 HP, added 18 inch wheels, exhaust system and ground effects to make it look cooler.

Pros: small, maneuverable, cool

Cons: low HP

Fugly. — not much to say this particular model is not great on the acceleration or the speed, brakes needed changing too often, but overall it held up through the years.

Pros: got me from point A to B and even to Cali =]

Cons: slow. slow. slow.

Economical Automobile With Great Handling & A Very Quiet Ride. —

I bought my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 2 door Coupe with a/c & an automatic transmission in July 2013 for $500.00. It had 174k miles on it & I was told it needed rear brakes and a windshield & after 3 months, so much for that! It took a Bank One catalytic convertor, 2 oxygen sensors, IAC valve, FPR, CTS sensor, EGR valve cleaning & new gasket, front struts, a new complete set of front rotors, calipers & pads, rear brake drums, bearings, shoes, wheel cylinders & brake hardware, transmission flush & speed sensor, windshield, cylinder head gasket, timing belt, radiator, thermostat, alternator, battery, white Rustoleum paint roller paint job & new rear strut assemblies to get it in tip top & ultra reliable shape. It cost over $3,200.00 to get it all done but it's been ever so efficient & reliable with no check engine light issues ever since & it should remain that way for many years to come @ 5k+ miles per year & the transmission was rebuilt in another state 10+ years ago. Engine starts up easily with perfect "factory spec" compression and the MPG has ranged between 26-34 & the heat's warm & the a/c is ice cold! It's a decent car, not the best or the fastest, but it does hold its own.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel economy along with being very quiet at higher speeds. Great handling & suspension with a puny turning radius. Simplicity in much of the design & if it's properly maintained & in decent shape it can be a long term winner! Handles great on the highway @ 55-60 mph.

Cons: After 150k+ miles one has to keep a close eye on sensors & other vital components &  to purchase a code reader. Not too much power but one has to remember it's a 1.5 four cylinder engine.

My Mirage — The body dents easily, as you can tell by looking at the older cars. It has the front end of a cavalier and the back end of a honda civic. But you can definitely beat it up, and it still runs well! i still get 32+ miles per gallon, although it only has a ten gallon tank, including reserve. I am so hard on this car, but it has never failed me - it starts up and runs every day!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great on gas

Cons: cheap looking
