Great read! I always get a reaction when I tell people how much I paid for the Mirage. They are seriously cheap for what they are. Yes, it's "slow" but really, it's a perfect car for driving from A to B. I am planning on Autocrossing it next year just to see how it does as I've read on here that the Mirage is actually pretty nimble on a Auto-X course!
