First impression after the ride home, and the ride to work today. First thing i was very impressed with, was the touchscreen and MGN system. It is so good, believe me i tested a friends 2015 Polo and the touch/navigation sucked so hard that i had little to none expectations to this one that came with the Space Star. The sound system is very good too, good bass and volume, i'm very pleased.
The other thing i noticed right away, was the confy ride. When i rode to work today, i knew there were some bumps that, on the mx-5, made the car shake like crazy, looking like everything was falling apart! On the Mirage? well, i almost not felt them! Of course this suspension setup, being so soft, brings other kind of problems. If the road has bumps, not potholes but little waves, the car feels very wobbly. But in the end, it's a trade-off i can live with.
I know that this car is a cheap ecobox but imo it looks very nice. Love those 15" rims, and the black + chrome bits give it a more up market look that i actually like. I was impressed that they gave me the Space Star floor mats, was not expecting that, neither the passenger side vanity mirror, excellent plus
On the negative side, when i left the dealer i noticed right away that the car already had a tone of swirl marks! Man it is a new car! And not only that, but the guys who were "cleanning" my baby, left a freaking black hand mark on the seat belt adjuster plastic... They sell high end mercedes and bmw, what type of service are they offering to those kind of people? leaving oil marks all over the car?
Got the car with a different type of deal. The salesman told me that it could register a black one with navigation system, for 12k, but the car needed to remain under testdrive until the end of January. He told that the car should end up with less that a thousand kms on the clock when it was given to me. Well i got the car with 68 kilometres, how about that? New car for less 2k€ all i had to do was waiting a month hahah
Fuel economy so far, city driving for 10km got 5L/100. Not bad for breakin car driving with 10ºC degrees. I'm pretty amazed let me tell you.
So far so good.
Looking forward to put tons of miles on this beast of a car
will update soon.
