    Thumbs up WTF with the question "What country is Mirage made?"

    I literally had to google search this forum and somehow stumbled to this link:http://mirageforum.com/forum/showthr...Mirage-is-made

    Which then opened this page:
    link:http://paultan.org/2012/05/29/mitsub...mirage-is-made

    Which then I guessed Thailand..?

    That took me like 10 minutes just to register!!! You guys need to put a simpler question...

    I was pretty sure the answer was simply Japan...

    I went to the "Contact Us" page and planning to just ask the admin what is the freakin answer too, but then even that Contact Us page is asking that stupid question!!!!!!!! :P

    Hi there,

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry for your inconvenience. Yes I agree the question is more complex than it should be.

    Maybe they should use a captcha like other sites do.

    Or ask questions like:

    What color was George Washington's white horse?

    or

    Who was buried in Grant's gave?

    It keeps the (human) spammers out. Captcha doesn't.

    Maybe only the really motivated owners join up. I'm OK with that!

    Look on the bright side: you learned something new about your car!

    Welcome.

    Yeah? Except I don't have my car yet until next week. On top of that, not everyone who join this forum already has a Mirage, maybe people wants to join to find out more about the car before deciding to buy...

    My point of that the question is just bad and totally not obvious.

    I hear ya! I did this same thing. This forum was a big influence on my decision to purchase a Mirage.

    Thanks everyone!

    Now that you vented it out, read this:
    http://www.mitsubishi-motors.com/pub...etail0839.html
    http://www.autoevolution.com/news/mi...and-44303.html
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_Mirage

    Yes the question is not obvious for those who is not familiar with the car, and as MetroMPG pointed out this was to keep spammers out. The other side of it people like you, who just purchased and don't have car yet cannot register easily, if they haven't read about car online.
