    Running costs put into perspective

    This is a report on running cost in Sydney Australia and mentions of the Mirage a common.
    Check out this link http://www.goauto.com.au/mellor/mell...257BF70001B820
    Basing its study on a 40-year-old driver with a good driving record, and taking into consideration the vehicle sale price, its depreciation value, insurance, registration, roadside membership, fuel, tolls, servicing and repairs, the NRMA has found that the commute from Manly to the city in the Mirage will cost $120.44 a week.

    In comparison, the Mercedes is a staggering $1601.73 over the same route, while the Corolla (priced from just under $20,000) comes in at $182.54 and the CX-5 (from almost $28,000) is slightly higher at $204.23.

    Wow, that is quite the savings! The corolla is a pretty thrifty car too. Thanks Jamie.
