Mitsubishi Mirage 2002 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Mitsubishi Mirage here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What is causing the squealing noise when I accelerate in my 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage?
The drive belts on the engines might be new, but what about the pulleys they run in? A pulley with a worn bearing can start to squeal when under load, such as when you start to accelerate and the belt has to speed up. Also, any coolant or oil on the belt can make it screech, too. When the belts had just been replaced, they were nice and clean, but after a few kilometres have passed and contaminants have been able to build up, you might be back to square one again with a screaming rubber belt.
Check the belts for coolant or oil (or anything else) on them as well as the pulleys and tensioners to make sure a small leak in the engine is not being spread all over the place by the belt. Check the belts for correct tension, too, as this can vary over time and is a classic cause of noisy operation. It does seem odd that both cars have started to make the noise in unison, but stranger things have happened.Show more

Mitsubishi Mirage 2014: Can my LS be fitted so it can tow?
Mitsubishi doesn't provide a towing rating for the Mirage, so it's not recommended that you tow with it. If you do choose the tow with it you should check with your insurance company, as you might be in breach of the conditions of your policy.Show more
What's a good small car?
Of those choices the Mitsubishi Mirage would appear to be the best option. It is the newest, has the fewest kilometres, and is the cheapest. It’s also reliable and should give you good service. In order of preference I would suggest the Toyota Corolla and the Holden Cruze.Show more
