    I saw a man!

    ... since buying my Mirage (beginning of 2015), I saw for the first time today a man driving a Mirage. Of all the probably dozens of Mirages that I have seen on the road, I have until now never seen an other male driving one of them. I AM NOT ALONE NOW!

    It's been mixed here lately. I think I've seen more men drive the Mirage than women though.

    I go to local car meets and I get a couple laughs from owning one and then people stop 'giggling' when I tell them how much I paid for it brand new....and my car is running perfectly fine compared to the 'project cars' they have.

    I bet you see a decent amount of mirages in MN due to WBL Mitsubishi pushing out a lot of mirages. That's where we got both ours.

    Pryme, I see one driving around almost everyday. I live about 10 minutes away for WBL Mitsubishi too and it's also where I got my Mirage. I believe mine was the last 'brand new' 5spd Mirage there before the 17' Mirages started to roll in.

    I am a man and drive a green Mirage. We bought it new from WBL Mitsu in '14. Wife had chosen to drive it ever since I taught her how to drive stick. Then we bought an outlander sport new in '16, also manual trans. Now she prefers to drive that and I get the mirage. Both are awesome vehicles IMO. Outlander sport is much more comfortable on long freeway drives, but I do prefer the mirage for fun to drive and MPG reasons. Love them both!!!!

    Unscientific survey time:

    2 Mirages seen in my little city, 100% are driven by women.

    I personally know six people who drive Mirages, including myself. FIVE of them are men.
