The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage: Great on Gas and Faster Than Your Lawnmower

Mitsubishi Mirage lemon law claimsIf you are the owner of a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage you likely are getting what you paid for. It’s one of the cheapest subcompact cars on the market and for the most part it absolutely lives up to its expectations. While the car is probably faster than your lawnmower, you shouldn’t expect much more than a basic car with four wheels that can get you from A to B.

Indeed, you have no one but yourself to blame for buying this cheap, no-frills ride, but if it’s any consolation you are probably getting great gas mileage. However, that doesn’t mean you should have to deal with mechanical problems that are unfixable or a safety issue that puts you or your family at risk.

It’s certainly no surprise that the Mirage got lower than average marks in an Initial Quality Study (IQS) conducted by JD Power that examines problems that present themselves in the first 90 days of new car ownership.  The study gave the vehicle only two out of five stars for its overall mechanical quality, powertrain, body and interior.

The Initial Quality Study (IQS) examines issues experienced within the first 90 days of new-vehicle ownership. This study measures car quality by analyzing problems reported in the mechanical quality and design of areas such as powertrain, body and interior, and features and accessories.

California Lemon Law Attorney

Typically if a vehicle has ongoing problems or is unrepairable, California lemon laws will protect the consumer by providing a path to getting the vehicle repurchased or your money back. Additionally, this is not something that a consumer has to pursue alone because the same state laws provide that the manufacturer pays attorneys fees separately. This means if a lawyer negotiates a settlement for a consumer, his or her fees are paid separately by the manufacturer and it doesn’t come out of your award.
