    Compliments on the Mirage

    We've all heard the disparaging remarks about the Mirage, but did you ever get a compliment?

    Yesterday, I got the sweetest compliment in a store parking lot. A five or six year old girl and her mother were parked next to me and were loading up their car at the same time I was. The little girl said that she liked my car and how nice and shiny it was. It just kinda made my day.

    When I had my loaner from Mitsubishi, my sister in law fell in love with it. She thought it was cute of course!

    I like to leave the hood up anywhere automotive relevant and show off the goods lol it usually results in a conversation or two. People seem to comment about the engine too battery size ratio, which definitely caught my eye the first time, too.

    Haha, yes, the engine to battery size ratio also made me laugh when I opened the hood the first time!

    Yup. Right after I got my Mirage I delivered an order to an older lady. She saw it and said, "That is the CUTEST little pizza car I have ever seen!"

    It's never "nice car". It's never "cool car". It's always "CUTE CAR".

    The middle school girl down the street yelled, "I like your tiny car!" as I drove by one day. My wife got a kick out of that one.

    I also noticed kids always looking at my car. Bright blue with a bunch of exterior mods. Had one kid run up to my car while I was throwing the trash away at my apartments.
