    Yeah it's pretty clear they have a thing for Honda's. I browsed through a few of their other reviews. They say the Fit is "Slow to accelerate-Automatic transmission is underpowered and drones" yet rate performance as and 8.1? Then in a Yaris review they say this about the Versa " The Nissan Versa ($11,900) is much less expensive than the Yaris, but it has no safety features."
    I guess I won't buy or ride in a Versa cause it sounds like they don't seatbelts or airbags.
    Not worth getting too upset over. With all these crappy reviews hopefully resale value will keep dropping then I'll pick one up a decent used one around here for under 4k.

    Oh well, ppl who base their decision on a review and not personally trying one and really deciding what they need won't get the best bang for their buck.

To me, the Mirage does feel cheap and the Fit doesn't. The 8K does make a difference.

    The point a lot of reviewers try to make is that for not much more, one can get a compact car with similar or even better MPG numbers, so what's the point in the buying the subcompact? For me, the point is that I like driving a very small car. And try getting a compact hatch such as a Chevy Cruz or Mazda 3 for 'just a bit more'. Not happening. Not even with a 2 year old used compact hatch. The lone exception that comes to mind is Toyota / Scion IQ. And if my Mirage were gone, I'd probably at least test drive one.
    I guess we have a conflict of opinion. There are multiple tiers in quality interiors. I only have two tiers. Cheap, and not cheap. Not cheap would be a good level German car, or even some American cars (brother just bought a new Dodge Durango) have pretty good interiors. All cars under the $25k feel cheap to me. My Corolla S interior is better in terms of quality than the Mirage, but not by much, not work nearly $8-10k more.

    I get what you mean about wanting a hatch. Hatches have better interior layouts for my preferences.

    I agree with this. My Toyota Yaris which I bought 10 years ago for more than $14,000 not only felt cheap but was cheap. It was the most basic car that I ever owned except for my Metro. No technology whatsoever was in it. The seat material was perhaps better than that in the Mirage, but the seats were more uncomfortable (to me and my back). Basically, it was hard plastic all around so I don't know why the reviewer focused on the hard plastic in the Mirage.

    I agree that you have to go to $25 k and beyond to get better materials and lose the "cheap" feeling. That is twice the price of a Mirage. For me, what's important is functionality. Does the car do what it purports to do and can it reliably get me from point A to point B. Having had my share of basic cars, having some technology is important to me too. And the Mirage fills the bill nicely. Other than that, I am not willing to pay for a luxury interior.

    Yeah, that part bothers me the most.

    Is the Mitsubishi Mirage Reliable?

    Though the 2018 Mirage does not yet have a predicted reliability rating, the nearly identical 2017 model earned an abysmal predicted reliability score of two out of five, which is the lowest score a vehicle can receive.
    Predicted based on what???

    From what I've seen, the car appears to be more reliable than its competition.
