    My first two cheap, used 2014 Mirages had good rear axles -- based solely on...

    Seems like sound logic.

    But let's not forget that the Mirage was never really meant to be a US/Canada product. Sales here have been dwarfed by sales in its most important market: Southeast Asia. ...

    Well they're sticking to that pattern with the 6g Mirage platform! It's already been a decade since it was designed. The 10-year anniversary of mass production is coming up in a few months.

    No argument from me: Mitsubishi dealers in North America NEED an entry level product. They can't simply abandon the Mirage's slot in their meagre lineup.

    I just think they're far more likely to...

    fixed for the flip!

    I saw this car re-advertised last week, the damage now repaired (title: salvage/branded). Same dealership. Double the price.

    Still, $5k is a super deal for a Mirage with 42k kms = 26k miles on...

    I don't.

    The auto industry has trained buyers to want to pay $5k more for lifted subcompacts (9 year loans, baby!), aka crossovers. Why would they go back?

    Also, fuel economy outside of the...
  10. So nice!

    I did the longest drive today since changing the transaxle oil... such a treat compared to before!

    Love it, love it, love it.

    RIP my sister's Camry Hybrid

    I've now driven the car half a dozen times since changing the oil, and the improvement is fantastic. Still a pleasure to shift ... well, as much as a Mirage can be.

    Welcome killerrudy!

    Congrats on the shady dealer purchase. Been there, done that.
