Although I love the ruggedness and reliability of my 2002 Nissan Xterra XE, I get only 13mpg on it in the city. So in an effort to improve my carbon footprint, I shopped for the most affordable high MPG vehicle. So I discovered the Mirage!
I read the reviews and laughed at what American reviewers found important that the Mirage lacked: High HP, 0 to 60 acceleration, and luxury feel (the last made me lol the most.)
I grew up around fuel efficient cars that are easy to maintain. Driving my Mirage brings me back to those days.
