    I bet my former 1990 Ford Festiva (sold 1988-1993) doesn't make the list, but I would not be opposed to buying another one today!

    If I found a center cap that would cover the center, I would go that route. My 2000 Honda CR-V had steel wheels, & I used two sets of factory steel wheels (bought 2nd set used). The center caps...

    It's always hard to compare prices (gallon to liter). Not going metric is a stubborn U.S. issue. I won't defend that. In my hometown gas has dropped over a $1/gallon. I don't remember a drastic...

    I read that article last night before going to bed. Overall, I thought the article did a decent job of explaining the appeal of the Mirage to some people. It fills a niche other companies are...

    Dirk - I don't blame you for being upset about your G4 purchase overall. Your fiancee probably already spent a little extra $$$ to get a slightly used G4 in the first place.

    Space Wolf - Is the price of gas falling in your part of the world like it has here?

    Fuel is cheaper than it has been for quite some time, but everyone is encouraged to stay put.

    The Toyota Supra (which is built in Austria) came out last May (2019). Toyota sold 2884 of them in 2019. Many are critical of the new Supra, because it's a BMW in a Toyota wrapping. Lack of a...

    I believe he was talking about Toyota bringing the 268 hp AWD Yaris here, & he would buy one.

    You can buy a 2020 Yaris in the States. I think the current Yaris has the weirdest looking front. ...

    I've owned cars that got me from point A to B using 200 less hp to do it. I shouldn't probably comment on vehicles like these. There's no place for all my fishing or hunting gear. Makes AWD or...

    If have to drive/ride in a small car, it better get 40+ mpg.

    If a vehicle has 268 hp, it better be able to tow a good sized boat, camper, or something.

    A vehicle like this would do neither....

    That sounds very Mayberry, U.S.A.! Sarah (operator of Mayberry) was probably mentioned most episodes. Never seen, probably never existed.

    Times have changed!

    If anyone read the article someone shared about Honda in Australia yesterday, Honda may go one pricing for their vehicles. No negotiating.

    I was thinking of owning hunting land, replacing my 35 year old ATV some day, buying a new compound bow, etc..

    But you bring up a good point. Those other items cost money, too! :)

    That's a great deal ($55 for all four). I lost a hubcap when one of my Enasave tires went flat (sidewall blow out). I spent more than that for one used replacement.

    It's shipping that's probably killing the deal for some. Personally, I don't know how companies offer free shipping and still make money. They must get huge breaks from shipping companies?

    If I was buying a Mirage today, I wouldn't buy a new one. When I bought the one I have now, they were going for $9,000 new. Less than $10,000 OTD. Used 2017 Mirage manuals didn't exist in 2017,...

    4-5 different trim levels the past few years doesn't mean much to someone like me, because a manual transmission trumps everything else.

    I believe in trim levels, but the upper trim levels (SE &...

    My county has 2 known cases. A neighboring county has one. Their one case is the main rural mailman for that county.

    Did he picked up the virus delivering mail?

    Burning 7.5 quarts of expensive synthetic oil between oil changes seems excessive to me. You would use more than one 5 quart jug of oil to do an oil change & then have to buy another 2 jugs to make...

    My 1990 Ford Festiva never used a drop of oil during the 14 years I owned it. I used cheap SuperTech conventional oil & Fram filters changed every 3,000 miles back then.

    My 2000 Honda CRV never...

    I would agree with that, but I have been impressed with the powertrain (130 hp from a 1.5 L non-turbo engine & a 6-speed manual) of the Honda Fit.

    I like the looks of the Mirage hatchback. ...
