After not much thinking and high gas prices in CA (3.75/gal) wife got a new mirage. Its the ES with CVT in white. Will be getting rid of the 15 Lancer SE that took close to 1100/month out of my monthly pay and she hated to fill it up! Also last year I helped an old friend get a blue 17 Mirage ES CVT and his friend just a week before got a red one. It seems my recommendations work and people are happy!
