    The funny thing is I love renting cars more than driving my own. Nothing against my cars at all, but it's fun to have some variety. It makes me appreciate my car more (or question buying a...

    Thanks for stalking me online. Lol. There are few defenders of the Mirage, so we do stick out from the crowd.

    The extra sound deadening and improvements on the Mirage really made a difference. ...

    The rates aren't quite that good now. Granted, this was done in April when any travel was discouraged and the rental agencies were aching for business. I rent a lot and the rates are back to normal...
  4. 2,600 miles in Mirage rental (with pretty pictures)

    Hey Miragers,
    It's been a long time since I've been on here...... 2015 in fact. That was when I was considering buying a Mirage and was obsessed with them (still am). I ended up buying a '15 Chevy...

    That's exactly what it is, essentially a Suzuki Wagon R, which are everywhere in Japan.

    Great around town and in tight spots, but things did get dicey around 100kmh. Totally agree. We don't know...

    Didn't really. We only took it on surface streets (booo!!!), so the weight gain may show when merging. But from a standstill, it didn't feel anymore sluggish than a Mirage. Keep in mind that it...

    I was equally shocked I liked it so much. The outgoing Spark wasn't terrible; just a cheap and cheerful appliance like the Mirage that offered basic motoring with some practicality. It was a peer...

    first test drive review

    I had the opportunity to drive a 2016 Spark last month while we were shopping around for a Fit replacement.

    This car could spell some trouble for the Mirage, although its competitive update is...

    Thanks for sharing the article, Darin

    Although I've never officially been a Mirage owner, I still love the car and what it stands for. Consider me your advocate in the shadows :)

    Don't forget...

    It was an okay review but I have to argue with this line: "If you feel like the Mirage ES might be calling your name, do yourself a favor and take your $17,000 down to the nearest Honda dealer and...

    You're very welcome Metro. I check the car news almost everyday and was drawn to this article obviously because it's about the Mirage. However, it's the same tired old comments that are on every...

    I still have my 1988 Daihatsu Charade with only 55k miles. It's an interesting and rare car. What drew you to the Charade so much?

    I still have yet to own a Mirage, but have had a variety of 3-cylinder cars. In high school, I had a 1993 Geo Metro as my first car. In my mid-20's, a 1987 Subaru Justy as a secondary commuter car....

    Absolutely agree with that; the clutch on my Charade is also feather light, and the Mirage's was almost identical when I test drove a manual. Like the Charade, it's also very forgiving. While it...

    Seriously! This car does not feel weak. Sure it's not a 5.0 Mustang, but it kept up with traffic just fine and there was never a frightening moment on the freeway, as some professional car...

    I haven't seen Regular Car Reviews, but will have to look it up. The left rear taillight on my '15 Fit has filled with water, it looks like a fish bowl in there!

    Mirage in Las Vegas

    Lately, I've noticed some Mirages sitting on the lot at Advantage Rent A Car near LAX (the only other agency renting out Mirages locally was Budget). With their $10/day rates, it seemed like a great...

    Congrats Honeythief!
    That kiwi green is such an awesome color! It fits the Mirage's quirky character well. I thought you were in France at first, until I saw the Dodge Ram in the background of...

    I've never heard that before about the manual powertrain purposely having higher revs to lower the MPG and seem less competitive against the more expensive CVT. Geez, the ways there are to make a...

    It is too bad that we don't have a Mirage in our garage, but I know that we would never have heard the end of it if we got one. The irony is that she rarely rides in our car and it really wouldn't...
