Got a screaming deal on a red 2018 Mirage ES with the CVT over here near Seattle, WA. Dealership was letting it go for $7,991. After taxes, registration, tabs, etc. it ended up being slightly less than $10K OTD. So pleased with the price. Car is honestly pretty great as well!
Of course, though, I'm taking the money I saved getting the deal and spending it on "car Barbie," dressing things up. Got new wheels, tires, armrest, and cruise control buttons in the post, attached a Curt tow hitch last night, and have side sills, rear garnish, front foglights, and a roof rack on order from the dealship. Adds probably another $2.2K.
Still ends up being a pretty good deal, I think!
It's hard to argue about under $10,000 OTD for a brand new car (with CVT)! That low price makes these cars affordable, reliable, & economical! Plus, you have full benefit of the 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, 10-year/100,000 powertrain warranty, & 5-year/unlimited miles roadside assistance.
When I discovered these cars could be had for under $10,000 OTD, I gave up looking at used cars, too.
After taxes, registration, admin fees AND interest, when all is said and done, my new 2020 es hatch mirage, 5 speed will totally cost me 15840.00 USD
I also added gap insurance to my cost though at 20 p/m ... what kinds of things are you guys adding to when you mention costs?
