1989 Mitsubishi Mirage turbo: For one year only, back in 1989, Japan imported 1,500 of these cars onto the U.S. shores. Also, for the same year came the Dodge & Plymouth Colt GT, with all of the same substance that makes up the Mirage. They were powered by the Mitsubishi 4G61t : a 1.6 liter DOHC, non-intercooled & turbocharged 4 cylinder. It's basically the infamous 2.0 liter turbo motor (4G63t) that you find in the Eclipse or Talons, but it has a destroked crank and slightly smaller pistons. For more information on these fun little cars, go to www.4g61t.org
I bought one last year and got it fixed up just this January. After 400 miles, I am more in love with this car! Big plans for the future, indeed! I took this video a couple days after I got it running, and the road conditions sort of prohibit any good display of performance. Can't wait for summer!!!
First video ever.....sorry if I sound like a bumbling dumbass

The All New 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Interior And Exterior review
Looking at the Mitsubishi Mirage, about the best you can say is that the
design is inoffensive. There's a reason for the bland, characterless front
end: aerodynamics, meaning that the rounded nose smooths the little car's
path through the air and uses very little fuel to do it. The rest of the
car's design is generic small hatchback, perhaps with a hint of
last-generation at the rear.
The materials inside are inexpensive, but Mitsubishi has crafted a
straightforward dashboard that doesn't really betray its hard-plastic
surfaces. Upholstery is simple black cloth with a subtle purple check. The
front seats are comfortable, but the seat cushions are short; the rear seat
will fit two adults, but while Mitsubishi calls this a five-passenger car,
the rear seat will only fit three if they're exceptionally skinny teens or
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage suffers from a soft suspension with a lot of
body roll and tire squeal, along with a dead spot in the center of the
electric power steering that can find the car drifting toward the edges of
the lane with no feedback to the driver. The very small 14-inch wheels and
tires may be at least partially to blame. The ride is smooth and quiet on
good roads, but acceleration causes the engine noise to rise substantially
and broken pavements and surfaces are frequently jarring.
The high fuel economy comes at a cost, though. With a 74-horsepower 1.0-liter
three-cylinder engine, the Mirage is neither fast nor powerful. Paired with
a new continuously variable transmission (CVT), its performance away from
stoplights and around town is fine if you work it hard. A five-speed manual
transmission is also offered but it reduces the gas mileage to 37 mpg
combined. At highway speeds, though, there's very little margin indeed for
acceleration or passing, regardless of which transmission you choose.
The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is offered in just two trim levels: the base DE
and the better equipped ES. Beside the standard automatic climate control,
all 2015 Mirages have power locks, windows, and mirrors; a 60/40 split
folding rear seat back and variable intermittent wipers. The AM/FMCD audio
system has a USB port, an auxiliary input jack, and there's a 12-volt power
outlet in the console. Standard steel wheels are fitted with silver plastic
For the Mitsubishi Mirage ES model adds alloy wheels, push button start,
cruise control, a height adjustment for the driver's seat, leather
wrappings for the steering wheel and shift knob, fog lamps, Bluetooth
pairing, and audio controls on the steering wheel. It has more chrome and
silver trim accents as well.
