  1. Nissan profits drop to near zero, 12,500 layoffs planned

    The past year was pretty bad for most of the car industry, but Mitsubishi's business buddy Nissan is doing especially badly. Operating revenue has fallen 13% in the past year, which leaves it with...

    I've only had one car that wasn't compact, an '04 Monte Carlo.

    I had a 2003 Cavalier and then a 2006 Cobalt, which were OK cars. Reliable and bland.

    I had a 1993 Nissan Sentra for a time. It...

    Maybe the Gideons are branching out? I've never been in a motel room that didn't have one of their bibles, so why not car dealerships? I think I'd rather read a bible than watch whatever daytime crap...

    I think Chad's link is a custom vinyl job, not a stock package like the Colorline Orange inuvik mentioned. Somebody really loved that car. It's not easy to make black paint look that good.

    Are all...

    Have you checked the A/C drain hose? I would do that first, since it's so easy to get to. Rain means humidity, which means lots of condensation to drain through that hose.

    Yeah, I'm amazed CR admitted anything good about the Mirage. They hate it. They give it a score of 31/100, the second-lowest of all the cars they've tested, in any category. Only the ridiculous Fiat...

    Too much black for me. Maybe if it had more orange? Like, a lot more orange.

    I wonder why Mitsubishi chose to price the car as they did, with basically constant $2k-$4k rebates for years. The MSRP suggested it competing against cars which were obviously more upscale, while...

    I got many calls/texts from those people in the brief time the ad was up, but the couple I sold it to, I'm pretty sure were buying it to keep. The husband had a cousin who replaced the engine for way...

    When a piston cracked in my last car (a Chevy Cruze) and it needed a new engine, I put it on Cragislist for $1,500 with full disclosure of the problem. About 15 minutes later, I had the cash and no...

    Mark, I agree that the current hatch fascia looks a little overcooked, but the trend is to cook things until they're no longer recognizable. I commend Mitsubishi for showing some restraint with the...

    I'm curious to see what this "new front grille design" looks like. If they're following current design trends, they'll black out the center so it looks like a giant gaping hole. I don't know why car...

    An Android Auto/Apple Car Play unit is available on higher trim levels, but the base touchscreen radio does exactly what it says on the label. It's a radio, with a touchscreen. It's not that bad as...

    Interesting, my '19 says "good job!" with the green Eco light, but there's no punishing red light if you hit the gas too hard.

    All US cars get a touchscreen radio thanks to the government...

    Darn. Part of the reason I bought a 2019 was because I was worried Mitsubishi would turn it into something I didn't want for 2020. Now I see I should have waited a year, because 2020 is a much cooler...

    Foama, I never knew it got that hot in Germany. Those temperatures will be normal here in the next few weeks, but it's been mild here so far. We're only just starting to hit 110°F / 43°C.

    Some cars don't even have a compact spare as an option. The fact that a spare is standard, at least here in the U.S., was one of the things that steered me towards a Mirage.

    Wow, you're giving me flashbacks to a crash I had years ago. I was going through a green light on a 55-mph highway. Somebody was waiting to turn left from the other direction. She kept slowly edging...

    No, the hose you found is the rear wiper fluid line Fummins mentioned. The hose you're looking for is solid black, and it comes out on the left side of the passenger footwell:
