Mitsubishi Mirage Problems

The key may become stuck in the ignition as a result of a failed ignition lock cylinder. Replacement of the lock cylinder should correct this condition.

No start to to failed distributor

A no start condition may be a result of an internal distributor fault. Our technicians tell us the replacement of the distributor may be necessary to correct this condition.

Front brake wear issues

A pulsation may be noted upon brake apply, most commonly caused by warped front brake rotors. Front brake pads may also wear out prematurely. Our technicians recommend replacing worn pads and rotors with quality replacement parts in order to achieve the best possible longevity for the front brake components.

Mitsubishi Mirage Recalls

Wiring Corrodes And Delays Frontal Air Bag Deployment In An Accident

Road salt and snow entering the vehicle may corrode wiring under the driver's foot rest area, which could result in delayed frontal air bag deployment in an accident. Dealers will inspect the affected connectors and replace any found to be corroded. Dealers will also install a waterproof sheet over the connectors to prevent future corrosion. These repairs will be performed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Air Bags May Not Deploy In An Accident

The frontal air bags may delay deployment and the side curtain air bags may not deploy at all due to a fault of the impact sensors. Dealers will replace the affected impact sensors free of charge to resolve the concern.

Mitsubishi Mirage Reviews

just got this '98 with 102k so far have had to replace timing belt(was made aware before buying) and the ignition coil(which is part of the distributor) the tie rods are wearing as well, but still very happy with car, i'm pretty handy and most parts are easily accessible
This car has been unbelievable for me! Great car! Bought it in Aug. 2004 for $1400 with 96K on it (from a Kia dealerership!!) and I now have 206K on it after 6.5 years. I just basically maintain upkeep, brakes, oil changes, tires, tune up, etc. Replaced the wiper motor and front portion of the exhaust very recently. The only thing wrong with it now is the motor mount on the top passenger side ...
I have had no problems with my car. I have been the only owner and I have kept up with all of the maintenance, but there has been no other problems.
