Mitsubishi must be banking on the idea that a car that is Made in Thailand could work in the developed world (including North America).

Let's see how that goes....

First the i-MiEV, then the '14 Outlander, now the Mirage. Who are the Mitsubishi designers, and worse, who are the Execs approving these???

Let's not even talk about the horrible and defunct Endeavor. Only car that will keep Mitsubishi alive if at all is the Lancer and possibly the RVR.

Even those won't keep the company alive if there are no dealerships to actually SELL them. That's Mitsubishi's main problem right now.

Just like with Suzuki, It's more or less a Catch-22 situation........as its American-market dealerships close up or are absorbed by other franchises, fewer Mitsubishi products are sold......and that, of course, makes it harder for people to GET to a Mitsubishi dealership to actually check out its products in the first place. The solution, IMO, is simply more Mitsubishi dealerships in the U.S. One cannot sell cars without the retail facilities to actually do so.
Colt was not built as 3rd world car though... thats the problem.

You cant have dealerships if you dont have good cars to sell.

like a mirage, it looks like there is something there but there is not. I am surprised this company is still selling cars in the US

Consumer Reports just tested a Mirage in its latest print-edition (I just read it this afternoon), and gave it only 29 points out of 100...the third-worst new car they have tested recently, behind the Smart-for-Two and the Scion iQ.


(For reference, this is a repeat of my post in the other current Mirage thread)

What a sad day for Mitsubishi. The car is truly pathetic in today's marketplace.

Front end resembles a 20 year old Hyundai Accent. One of the worst cars and designs way back then.

Look, similar overall shape and plainness....

Consumer Reports, while noting its smooth ride (by subcompact standards) and good fuel economy (among the best in a non-hybrid/diesel) actually used the term "miserable" in describing this car. That's a pretty strong word for a magazine that prides itself on objectivity and non-bias.

I've got some news for you, if you are not already aware of it. The Hyundai Excel (what the Accent was called in those days) was, in fact, a rebadged Mitsubishi Precis....designed by Mitsubishi. And Hyundai used some Mitsubishi engines even after they started selling their own Korean-designed products here in the U.S.
