    I remember after I bought my 2014 Mirage that there were yahoo surveys where the Mirage won "Top 10 worst cars of all Time" and "Top 10 ugliest cars in Production" - lots of haterz.

    By worse I mean within their design niche and for ''what they are''. Subjective - I know.

    I think I would nominate the entire Smart Car line, some of the Fiats, most Jeeps and Chryslers, Mitsu I-Miev, most Dodge and GMC offerings, any car that is horribly overpriced within its niche (Volkswagen EOS), what else?
    Well, since I chose the Mirage out of all the other options out there, I would say that - for me - everything else is worse than the Mirage.

    What's worse than the Mirage? Those who don't understand what it is designed for and then hate it for not meeting their expectations.

    I'm gonna say the F150 ecoboost doesn't live up to the "Eco" name. Everyone I know that owns one one gets the same or worse fuel mileage than the 5.0L or comparable V8. They have power but are pigs on fuel.

    Yeah they have a bit more power too.
    I still wouldn't tow anywhere near what they say you can with a 1/2 ton. I've had 4500lbs in the box of my 3/4ton but I wouldn't recommend it.

    You can't beat the Mirage for the money. It appears they have tough drivetrains and hold up well. I want reliability over flash.[/QUOTE]

    Well said. I tend to follow the same philosophy. I recently bought a Speed Queen washer and dryer. They aren't flashy, do an excellent job at what they are designed for, and tend to last 25 + years. Kinda like the Geo Metros I've owned too. Lol
