    Wink You know you drive a Mirage when....

    When you hear the awesome growl of that 3 cyl. engine!

    When you have the longest warranty of any Jap brand.

    When you turn on the dome light in the front seat and it is pitch dark in the back seat.

    When you're in the company parking lot jammed in by half the staff's cars and the boss sends out staff to move cars. Then you drive out while they are on their way out and they give you that look. Told the boss I have the perfect spot in the yard.. Oh well.. I laughed

    SUV's pass you when you're going 70mph because they can't stand to have a micro car going faster than them.

    When your insurance costs are higher than your fuel costs.

    when you say your mirage is a 3-cylinder and they reply "3 CYLINDER!?" in a high pitched voice.

    You buy a 5 quart jug of oil for an oil change and have 1.5 quarts left over.

    The first time you need tires you think to yourself "I bet these 14" Dunlops are really inexpensive!"

    You spend an hour trying to get that wrench icon on the dash to turn off because you won't read the owner's manual.

    You read the owner's manual and you still can't get the wrench icon to turn off.

    You need new rear tires at every other oil change because your rear alignment is so bad.

    You drive all over looking for a shop that can register your new TPMS sensors...just to find out it's going to cost you $100 at the dealer.

    The first time you vacuum the carpet and realize that whatever that stuff is covering the floor...it's not carpet.

    Your normal cruising speed on the freeway is almost 4000 RPMs.

    You have your car at a shop and the technician says "This is the first one I've ever seen."

    The clutch on your riding mower requires more pedal effort than the clutch in your car.
