    Not sure why he is reviewing a two-year-old used Mirage when he could pretty easily get his hands on a new-and-improved '18. But I guess he reviews all kinds of stuff.

    I put my $0.02 worth in under the comments!

    And they've apparently put him on the defensive. Last night he changed his first pinned comment under the video to read:

    "Watch from 18:00 before complaining about how offended you are that I don't "understand" this car."

    It's amazing the amount of backlash against Mr. DeMuro this review is creating. Over 600,000 views in TWO DAYS. Over 11,000 comments, most of which are from people around the world and are along the lines of, "I live in Chile and the Mirage is considered a rather luxurious car here. F@ck you!"

    I think it's all very, very funny!

    My favorite comment, from a viewer simply known as "Mark". I repost it here because it will likely be un-findable in a few hours:

    "I hate-watched this video knowing that it was being reviewed by some guy who makes his living driving fancy shmancy zoom-zoom penile-envy cockrockets. Of course DD hates this car. It offends him that cars could possibly be liked solely for cheap reliable fuel-effecient transportation. Also, I am not POOR and I own a 2015 Mirage. There is a human charm to vehicles like this. Anyone who's driven around the British Isles is a Micra, a Corsa, or a Ka knows this. Anyone who prefers an old small cottage to a McMansion knows this. I personally would rather own three Mirages than one f**king F-150 Raptor or whatever-ST. So stick the Mirage hate up your butt good sir."

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Popular Youtube car critic Doug DeMuro reviews a Mirage

    He was fair to our vehicle towards the end around the 18 minute mark. This car is for cheap, reliable transportation. It's not ment to be a head turner or anything like that.

    MercyMirage, I moved your thread into one we already had started on the topic.
    Custom Mirage products: Cruise control kit, Glove box light, MAF sensor housing
    Current project: Developing a rear sway bar alternative

    One review retard on utube could not shut up about the Mirage being stuck in the 90's because of the equipment installed.

    I don't remember seeing traction control, stability control, ABS, bluetooth or MP3 capability on any 90's car at any price.

    So the guy is an idiot. Plus the base Spark comes with manual windows (all four!) and those weird little joysticks attached to each mirror. That equipment is from the 80's , nevermind the 90's as some commenter posted.
    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    More on Reddit:

    Following on from the Doug Mirage review. If you want a reliable car for that kind of money and aren't an enthusiast, why would anyone not just buy a 3-5 year old Corolla instead?

    Where DeMuro actually defends the Mirage:

    A lot of very savvy car enthusiasts say things like 'Why don't you just buy a used Civic?' Well, because not every used Civic is good. The people buying Mirages bought a used Civic once, and they don't know much about cars so a few months later the timing belt snapped, and they were screwed.


    Not everyone is smart enough to know which used Civic to buy, or which used Corolla, or to spot the ones where the exhaust is held on with zip-ties or whatever. And a lot of people are scared of being that person who gets the unreliable Corolla or the unreliable Civic, maybe because it has actually happened to them before.


    I've often felt this is the biggest issue where car enthusiasts lack perspective -- car enthusiasts know how to spot these issues, and it's so ingrained in us that we almost can't believe there are people out there who don't realize if you mash the brakes on a test drive and the car and it shakes, it may need new pads and rotors. But those people exist, and they're not idiots, they just don't know much about cars. Which is fine.


    By buying a Mirage, you get the comfort of knowing you have a new vehicle (a big deal) with a long warranty (a big deal). Plus, it's often difficult to finance older used cars, whereas Mitsubishi would finance a wombat if it walked into a showroom.
