    I've noticed more than a few members mention they've owned Geo / Chevrolet Metros. (For those outside of Canada/US., these were Suzuki 998cc cars based on the Swift/Cultus from the 80's & 90's. Like the Mirage, many typical auto "enthusiasts" loved to hate these cars because they were low on power and high on fuel economy.)

    I still drive one (pictured beside the Mirage loaner from Mitsu Canada): a base 1998 Pontiac Firefly 5-speed (Canadian market Metro clone). And I have a '91 convertible version (also 5-speed) parked in the garage awaiting some restoration work.

    For a couple of years I also had a 2000 Honda Insight hybrid: advanced 1.0L 3-cyl engine coupled to a small electric motor/generator and 5-speed transmission.

    So, did you come to the Mirage with 3-cylinder experience?

    Post a pic if you did!
