"I never should have bought this car..."
That's something else the owner of this Mirage told me.
I was shocked when she said it.... until she explained why: The nearest dealership is 100 km (~60 mi.) away in Ottawa, so getting Mitsu-specific service is a pain in the butt. (She bought the car before she knew she would be moving from Ottawa to here.)
Which makes me respect the forum members who liked the Mirage so much, they went the distance to get one because they had no local dealers.
Maybe I should start a thread about "long-distance owners" and whether they have any regrets.
