    Mark Stevenson left TTAC too (the same week).

    They're both good writers. But they were petty and unprofessional when it came to the Mirage.

    Damn, I just bought a 2014 DE CVT 46k miles and after reading your statement did I make a mistake? Did you not enjoy your 2015 nearly as much as your 2017? Truly curious.

    I think a person should appreciate & enjoy what they already have (especially if you are still making payments on it).

    There are a lot of forum members on here that drive/own 2014-15 Mirages. I have never sensed a lot of 2017+ Mirage envy on their part. Obviously, some tweaks were done with 2017+ models. This particular discussion was started in October of 2016, & it addresses some of those.

    I purchased a Mirage a year after this thread was started. Threads like this one did influence me somewhat. I could have bought a used 2014-15 Mirage in October of 2017, but I decided to go with the newer 2017+ model. Originally, I was going to wait a year or two and purchase a used 2017 Mirage. When I discovered I could buy a new one for $9000, I gave up waiting for a used one. I really like my Mirage, but I still wouldn't pay a lot of money for one.

    I own a 2017 Mirage ES (manual), & you have a 2014 DE (CVT). We both own cars that are affordable, reliable, & very economical. I don't sense many long time members of this forum trading in their 2014-15 Mirages for the updated 2017+ models. You are not the only forum member who has bought a used Mirage since the 2017 changes have taken place either. Many new members are buying used Mirages. Why not? They are a great bang for your buck type of vehicle.

    If you go back to the original post in this thread, you will find a happy Mirage owner. If someone isn't happy with their first Mirage, they surely aren't buying a second one. No vehicle is perfect. I have never owned one at least. We both own relatively cheap economy cars. No car review or customer opinion is going to change that fact.

    I really like my Mirage for what it is, & I really don't care what others think. I have some friends who don't get small cars. Heck, my dad & brother are that way. I don't worry about it. My brother just traded in his 2004 GMC pickup for a brand new 2018 GMC pickup just a couple weeks ago. He hopes his new truck will last him another 15 years like the last one. My brother lives 7 miles from my parents, & I live about 230 miles from them. My brother pulls a relatively large fishing boat. I own a couple kayaks. We use our vehicles differently.

    I wouldn't continue to second guess your purchase now that it is done. You have a nice car. Enjoy it!
