1999 Mitsubishi Mirage DE
-1.5 liter engine
Parts recently replaced
-Distributor cap and rotor
-Spark plugs and wires
-Since I bought it I have had a little trouble with the transmission. When coming to a stop the car will come out of gear, go into gear, come out, then go back in. It is a little annoying, but I have been driving like that for about 8-9k miles and it has not gotten worse. I'm not too sure what exactly is causing the car to do that. Even if you hold the brake and gas coming to a stop (keeping a load on the converter) it will still do that. It also takes about 4 seconds to go into drive or reverse. It did have new fluid put in it around the 104k mile mark.
-The car does have idle surge. I bought it from my boss, and he had the TPS sensor replaced before I got it, for some reason I doubt the mechanic put it in the right position, there is a how to on this on www.mirageforums.net, I just don't have a multi-meter yet.
-The car has a few rust spots under the hood, I hit most of them with Por-15, there were some spots on the drivers side door, but I mostly took care of them.
-The drivers side door doesn't align all the way, it doesn't look like it was ever hit, but I'm not 100% sure.
-Someone opened the hood too far and bent the hood hinge, hood still works fine.
-A/C doesn't work, it is charged but blows hot air
-power steering pump squeaks
-I removed the A/C and PS belt (still relatively easy to turn)
-Horn is possessed (stays on unless you pull the relay, problem is probably in the wheel)
-There are some stains here and there in the interior
-Cloth on drivers side door panel is partially coming off
The car gets good gas mileage, I usually get upper 30's.
Overall it runs good, I've put almost 9k on it since I bought it has not left me stranded
The body is in decent shape, only a few dings in it, paint is good
It comes with a CD player
A lot of maintenance has been done
I've run synthetic oil in it since I got it, it doesn't lose much oil
Comes with a few spare parts (snow tires, starter, alternator, etc)
It has the sticker, and some stickers from Gabor on it
Price: Asking $1299
I will also trade for a Galant VR-4 or another car around the same value.
