Great First Car — I liked the ease of repair and availability of parts. The interior is basic, yet does everything needed. No frill cars means fewer things that can break and rely on actuators to move instead of fingers. Back seat area was definitely lacking.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very affordable and great room under the hood to work on items as needed.

Cons: small space interior and trunk support bars limit the amount of items that can be put in the back

Great Car For Commuting — Good lil car. Awesome on gas and low maintenance. If you need major repairs though it will probably cost you more then the car is worth. My Distrubutor gave out and I was quoted $1000 to get it fixed. Which is way more then the car is worth!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Low Maintenance, Cheap on gas

Cons: Expensive if you need major repairs

Great Car. — this car has great acceleration but lacks on top speed. The braking and handling are amazing. this car is well bulit and functions great. needs very little repairs. the outside looks good and so dose the inside but i dont like the upholstery. this car gets about 30 mpg. this car is very fun to drive on back roads and at stop lights. if u get it. this car is mildly modified though it has a full 4-2-1 2.5" racing exhaust, weapon-r intake, adjustable fuel press reg., high press vacuum hoses. and 2x12 w0 jl with a 250 watt amp. soon the entire outside will be fully redone. also stage 2 cam and cam gear and a reprogrammed ecu.

Pros: great mpg, strong acc. great handling.

Cons: not a lot of horse power but easy and cheap to get more.

Light, Quirky And You Can Build It Up To Be Quick And Nice. Lot's Of Jdm Parts Available. — It's light and easy to drive. The stock SOHC 1.8L is matched to the same year Civic's. What's great about this motor is that in other countries it was offered in a DOHC and DOHC Turbo and its a direct head swap...wider power band, more hp stock and more tuner friendly. The car was made to compete with the Civic so build quality is about the same. Cost me 1,500 used and well worth it especially if you are a Mitsubishi fan. A lot of things can be done to this car and its an under dog car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Light, quirky and with the right sources you can build it up to be quick and nice.

Cons: It's comparable is the Civic.

Ok Little Car — This car is definately a value car. It has descent performance, descent room in the front (the back is a different story) I'm 6' 1" and can comfortably drive this car. Build quality is alright. It is not the most solid feeling car out there but it requires little maintanence (clutch has 185,000 miles on it and doesn't need replaced yet)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Value, Reliability

Cons: Space in the rear, Engine noise

Buy It — Good acceleration when the car is empty. Build Quality is awesome on outside, interior leaves some for desire. Great aesthetics but as with most of these small cars they beg for the benefits of lowered suspension both for looks and handling. Very cheap to own apart from body repairs and a very fun car to drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, Cheap and Reliable

Cons: Interior Trim Quality

2001 Mitsubishi Mirage Ls Coupe — Performance: its pretty quick right off the line. I just bought it less than a week ago and am waiting to register it so i haven't touched 5th gear yet. I wish it was a little quicker, that way reviews could stop saying it cant compete with leaders in its class(Jetta and Golf) but i bought this at a fraction of one of those. Quality: Fairly well build. Everything is smooth looking.. Definately fun to drive. I bought the 5 speed with a sun roof and its perfect. Like i said, i wish it could blow the doors off the VW's but eventually ill get it there.

Pros: Sound system is pretty good. Gas mileage is awesome. Gears are pretty nice.

Cons: Speed, and i wish mine was black.

01 Mitsu Mirage — surprisingly this car actually had great acceleration. of course it got great gas mileage, and it is a very low maintenance car. i drove it for a year and didn't do any maintenance to it. appearance was good because it looks like the lancer if you put the evo body kit on it. and it is very fun to drive

Pros: gas mileage, its a mitsubishi

Cons: the engine has plenty of power, but it could always have more

Its Small, Its Good On Fuel, Its Cheap And Its Pretty Much Only Owned By Good Looking Chicks. — Acceleration is horrible but it does the job. Test out the brakes on a track and they'll fail quickly. Build quality is good but still plastic. After 6 years there's lots of rattles. It can look fantastic if you look after it and are tactful with any options. Its great on fuel if you know how to drive and after 120,000 km it still feels like new. Revs out very nicely and still can put a smile on your face.

Pros: Small, Economic, Fun

Cons: Slow
