    If people bought everything with wads of cash, I guarantee they would spend way less, if it was less "easy" to buy.

    Looking at you, online shopping, and looking at you debit and other cards,...

    I boycott Amazon, but if I didn't I would order one of those universal middle armrests that fits the male end into the cupholder. No need to drill into plastic.

    The one that fits Toyota Echos and...

    Glad you're enjoying your new Mirage, Danny.

    I haven't heard anyone describe that advantage of stick shift with lights before like that. But you're right. So I've "rolled" my Mirage at a red...

    Good write up. Not sure what I think of the orange side skirt. Looks cool now, will I like it in 6 months?

    They say the 2021 hatch auto weighs at 2,095 lbs. I'm pretty sure my 2014 ES Mirage (no...

    Free market out there, I'd look at all the possibilities, see who is willing to haggle with price. VW small SUVs are all pretty nice. I'd be looking at all my options at this price point. Test all...

    What are you towing?

    I'd just make sure you're getting good mpg's in that category. I know my friend has a Ford EcoSport, and he says it's terrible on gas, he went from an oughts-era Corolla,...

    Early Mirages could be had in a dark purple. I never saw many like that, but my friend said go for the dark purple and I said no way. Now I wonder if I should have gone with dark purple.

    Like an...

    Hi Danny, you get your best mpgs when you're going around 50 mph in a Mirage. Same with any car, just like your current Ford Fusion shows. Drive very fast is gonna drink more fuel. Also Mirage has a...

    2022 Outlander looks completely different from what they are doing with styling the Eclipse Cross over the years now. I like the new Outlander, but I'm not sure if they sell the hybrid plug in one, I...

    The new refreshed 2021 or 2022 Eclipse Cross does not have the split window. The front lights have all changed style too.

    I'm usually at 80 and 90 km's an hour on similar country roads. Tractor country lol.

    Getting like 4.5- 5.0 L/100 km's is an amazing return on my gas money. I can't complain there. My Mirage has...

    I should mention I fill up when my dash gas gauge reads 100 km's or more til empty. So like 3 or 2 squares left, sometimes 1 square left. If the square thing starts to flash, I get panicky and fill...

    True true. I wonder what max fuel economy I could get if I kept my Mirage at 45 km's an hour all the way to the next town. I also wonder if people would get suspicious.

    I may have to put my 4...

    I've never set my trip computer to find out. I fill up about every 10 days or so. On average I drive my car 50 km's a day, 5-6 days a week. That equals around 400 km's to a tank. My dash computer...

    I see I see. That is too bad what happened.

    But honestly I like both those cars you have now. In Canada they sold Eclipses like you have, only as the Plymouth Laser, or the Eagle Talon. People...

    Thanks MetroMPG. That's not a bad idea. If the photo is supposed to supplant the actual checking of my stove, then I'd have to check the photo 4-5 times, too. I haven't tried this.

    I like the Mazda2. I don't see many around. That said, there is a baby blue one near me somewhere that I see the odd time.

    The Mazda2 looks a bit longer in real life compared to my Mirage hatch....
