    Salam fellow PW's, Bought Mitsubishi Mirage on Japan auction few days back. Landing in Lahore in September InshAllah . Upgraded from Wagon R Stingray 2011. Obviously, had to do a lot a of survey and research before finally being convinced that it was the best option to go for in under 1.2 million PKR range category . Pics are from the auction house. Any questions regarding the car, feel free to ask. Main specs are :



    • 1.0L MIVEC with CVT transmission


    • Push start (G)
    • Climate control
    • Activated stability control (ASC)
    • UV cut privacy glass

    • 4 airbags
    • Anti-lock brakes (ABS)
    • Adjustable rear seats
    • Immobilizer (G)
    • Keyless entry
    • Auto stop & go (ASG) (M & G)
    • Hill start assist
    • Eco assist and Eco lamp
    • Emergency stop signal function
    • Emergency tire puncture repair



    It is 2013 Manufactured Base S trim, 4.5A grade with 7k on odo.

    Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600214Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600215Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600216Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600217Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600218Its Mirage time AlhamdoLillah  -1600219

    Available in 3 trims - S, M & G. (1.0L variants) with Mitsubishi motors giving great warranty abroad. (60000 miles basic, 100000 miles power train, 100000 miles anti corrosion warranty)

    @vickey191 .. first of all thanks
    And about the reviews. I posted earlier in the thread as well that one should be your own judge coz expert reviews can be misleading. Why, lemme try to explain a bit. Good mileage will never be the priority for them, rather they want a more fun ride even if it comes at a cost. Read the consumer reviews of actual people who currently own it and using it (I've shared the link above) .. You will see majority of people disagreeing with them.
    Then comes value for money. With these features, assembly and cabin space and mileage figures, in this price range no other option even comes close imo. If people in US ( where affordability is much more ) think of it as an ideal daily city ride in 13-15 k dollars, then I don't see any reason why under PKR 1.2 million for a 2013 mirage here won't make perfect sense
    Do we really want a powerhouse 1.0 L for our daily city commute ? Or rather something that is comfy, easy to handle and gives great mileage ?

    the problem is the definition of spare parts, lets say I want the inner kick panels and front A pillar plastic finishers for this mirage, where can I go to buy them brand new in Pakistan?

    the problem is oversimplification in Pakistan, for every problem you hear "aray bhai kabaar mein iss ka sub kuch milta hai" - just a simple question of "insert part assembly name" and they become deaf n dumb.

    Its been like that forever.

    btw - I have driven this car and honestly I would rather not, its incredibly uncomfortable - so much so that even my ancient mazda 808 was very comfortable compared to this.

    @Xulfiqar .. Sir I completely agree with the spare parts thing. Unfortunately, it's been like this for ages and given our economy I don't see huge changes in market structure anytime soon.
    And yes, I'm not expecting any bombshell drive out of her, just appealed to me as the best available option in this price range for our second family car. Here, you get 2012 Vitz 1.0 L for 1.4 million. And when we go under 1.2 million mark, the options become even limited unfortunately. I wish we had a market like yours with plenty of viable options to choose from

    I used to live in Pakistan and even owned a car whose spare parts were at complete zero availability, meaning even a simple item like a fuse strip was not available.

    I got it cheap, had to import a lot of stuff just to keep it running (it was my toy), not everyone has the time or resources to source such car parts - and even if they do, why should one do it on something as hopeless as this car, a bit more and you can get a corolla 1.3 whose every part is available very easily along with its 100% correct service procedure. For this you may even buy parts straight from a mitsubishi warehouse in Japan but who in Pakistan is known to do 100% work on these?

    yes - its a machine and anyone can follow a manual but if that were true everyone could be Dr Abdus Salam after reading a couple of books on particle physics.

    @Xulfiqar ... Sir 1.3 corolla is not a bit more, it's almost half a million more. If I could've stretched by budget by this much then there was no point of this discussion. Under 1.1 million category is what I'm talking about here in Pakistan. And with all due respect zulfiqar Bhai, comparing advance particle physics with basic 3 cylinder engine operation in automotive world, really?? in Karachi, many people have already imported and using her. And the availability of spares is minimal at the moment but is there upto some extent from what I've checked unlike the vehicle you kept here back in the day. Obviously can't match local assembly vehicles in spares regard but they cost more as well.
    As I said earlier, I wish we had more options here but unfortunately according to budget category, we don't really have much. When it comes down to cultus, local wagon r or 2011 passo, I would still prefer mirage against all these here. What else can I get under 1.1 million for a relatively new car here?

    @Xulfiqar & @drzac both r right in their own perspective. And its really hard to decide between those two point of views. With budget of 1.1m vitz 2012 is outta question but its hard to decide between these three 1.1m mira eis 2012. 1.2m passo 2012 & 1.1m Mitsubishi mirage 2012 g package
