Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

Happy holiday, nice meeting you.
Is the change tires going to affect mpg?
I’m going to pay a deposit for my 2023 Mirage GT in Vancouver BC Canada.
Is there anything I should pay attention? This is my first time buying a new car.
please consider checking out my Mirage related youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6c...IEViRFw/videos
Yes, Corolla could be a good choice, but it’s more pricey and less mpg. I’m driving 300 km a day. Those numbers would add up. I was considering Corolla hybrid and Prius, but they are too pricey, plus the wait time is 18 months.
If you haven't test driven a Mirage & a Corolla at high speed, I would seriously consider doing that before forking over any money.
I bought a brand new Mirage because they were $7,500-9,500 (depending on what rebates you qualified for) at the time. That was 5-years ago, however. If a brand new Honda Fit could have been had for under $10,000 OTD back then, I would have one of those in my driveway. The same for the Corolla. If the price of a Corolla (even a base level one) was only a few thousand more than a Mirage, I wouldn't own a Mirage.
I really like my 2017 Mirage ES manual, but that's only because it was cheap! I could have bought two of them back then for the price of one today (US market). A Mirage must be affordable, reliable, & economical for me to be interested. If you remove one of those three things, I would pass on the Mirage. Given today's pricing of a Mirage, I wouldn't buy a new one. I wouldn't rule out a used one, but I would be back looking at other Honda & Toyota options at the same time.
I haven't made the effort to compare the Canadian prices of new cars. I would test drive & compare regardless of where I lived.
Unless the market changes, I don't see myself buying another new vehicle in my lifetime.
