    I got a Dodge Journey as a rental once. I'm willing to bet the Mirage beats that thing. :P

    I agree with the Journey being on the list. Everyone I know that's owned one wishes they hadn't cause it's always in the shop for something.

    I drove a Dodge Nitro as a company car for about five years, then a Jeep Patriot after that. I preferred the Patriot for its smaller packaging (and yet, acres more headroom... go figure), but neither were what I'd call good.

    I have lost some respect for Consumer Reports over the years. I bought a few of their recommended cars and have been somewhat disappointed. For example, remember the Ford Explorer/Firestone tire roll over cases. My late 1990's Ford Explorer was not one of my favorite vehicles, even though it was one of their highly recommended vehicles when I purchased it . Currently, I have 2011 Subaru Forester. I've never owned a vehicle that burns oil as badly as this one. Once again, CR likes the Forester. It's not burning cheap conventional oil either. I am liking my 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage ES (manual). I paid less than $9500 brand new & the warranty is an awesome perk. Don't really care what CR thinks!

    I would like to start reviewing/rating people who review cars.

    It's just clickbait. These sites and companies have to generate revenue, and this is how they do it.

    Consumer Reports like everyone else these days relies on advertising revenues to stay alive. This means that while their opinions are well researched they preach status quo.
    The Mirage is hated by most so it's hated by CR.
    As for the cheap interior I test drove the Nissan Micra which everybody loves and found the interior far cheaper feeling than the Mirage. Our interiors are miles above any base model Dodge/Chrysler product.

    I agree with the others. I haven't paid attention to CR for years now. Per their reviews (and many other automotive outlets) we all need to be driving around in big 'ol plush vehicles that have every amenity at the touch of a button, gobs of power, and fuel economy is a hollow afterthought (until gas goes above $4/gal, then its crazy panic mode). A-B transportation and minimalist / utilitarian vehicles are simply unacceptable in this day and age. Just more fuel for the entitlement mentality that the US seems to propagate sadly.

    CR should stick to rating blenders.
