    Well... we have to give him some credit.. his stated worse car being the Mirage was only #5 on the list... so the cars that were worse, a Toyota, a 165,000 dollar BMW, a $60,000 Audi and a Buick.

    PS... when I was reading the comments, a viewer mentioned this about the Cc Closed Captions...
    ""1:48 subtitles say that the mirage is $118,000""

    Actual caption:
    "to 60 in 11 seconds and its not even all that cheap, its $118,000 base price for the hatchback $19000 for the sedan" LOL

    Say what you want about his initial review, but as I've said before, he put that car on the map for me. I never would have paid attention to another Mirage (after my '97 anyway) if it weren't for some of his exaggerated claims. I had to see for myself and I was glad he was wrong! But yeah, he's got too much $ to think like a normal person.

    I wish I could tell it to his smug face.

    It's the best car ever.

    For those who know what they want and expect out of a car.
    SIMPLIFY THEN ADD LIGHTNESS.

    If the car didn't blow around in high winds, I agree its the perfect "little' car... the hatch can carry a lot (not as much as my old SUV), but if you have only the 2 front occupants and upto a moderate amount of luggage, its hard to beat.

    Great review. His summary is pretty much spot on until the end when he claims this is not for a car enthusiast. While I get what he's saying, I have to disagree. This Mirage *is* for car enthusiasts and this forum proves it.
