    Torchinsky doesn't hate the Mirage, but this one amused him.

    Lots of comments, as usual.

    Haha nice. I liked this read better though. Talking about how the G4 is not as nice as the hatch.

    Maybe my point of view is skewed but I don't understand why all these reviewers and commenters keep repeating the delusion that the Mirage is short on technology.

    It has loads of technology. Compared to previous cars of this size and class, I would be interested to hear from anyone who criticizes this point to find a similar model vehicle with more 'technology'.

    There may be a few creature comforts missing, but I don't miss them nor do I need them. It's not the reason why I bought mine.

    I guess to an auto reviewer "technology" = radar-guided cruise control and lane-change warnings? I don't need them...my eyeballs work fine and my head still swivels adequately on top of my shoulders.

    These reviewers would be terrible marketers. There's a market segment for the Mirage which is based on the need and costs for the consumers. They'd just make their preferred car then put a price tag of $1 million lol.

    Somebody should email Mitsubishi and tell them they built the world's first optionless car!

    I am also saddened to see all the poor Mirages sitting at the dealership unloved. I want to bring them all home with me.
