Whenever I have the opportunity I stop and speak with fellow mirage owners and share this site. I learned some interesting things during my encounters most mirage owners know a lot about the car and almost every case either people wanted the loaded hatch/g4 with all the goods or purchased for price, warranty, and simplicity. I noticed women more then men wanted and purchased the manual transmission the reason I'm surprised the media states manuals are dead in the US.
So far I've spoken with around 15 or so mirage owners. All of them no matter transmission, model year, or model, are getting 40 mpg +.
Biggest complaint G4- lack folding rear seat.
Biggest complaint hatch- lack of arm rest or hill assist 17 models.
