    Make 'em find you one. If you let them know you are a serious buyer, they will.

    I bought a 2017 Mirage when the 2018 models were already on the lots. A good Mitsubishi dealer will find you the car you want, especially if they are located in a large metro area. I called a dealership that had a good reputation & excellent reviews. When I called the general manager, he picked up his own phone. He openly discussed "out the door" prices, & there were no surprises! He found my 1st choice in color in a very short time, & he had the car delivered to my home a few days later (over 200 miles) for free. We did the paperwork on my kitchen table, & I met my salesman at that moment. The general manager made the entire deal, and he sent one of his salesman to deliver the car.

    My point is that a good dealer has access to what is really out there, & they will find you what you want. Don't rely on cars.com or autotrader.com, because not all dealerships use those sites. Sadly, a more local dealership was not as helpful. Huge difference in consumer service! If you don't find one dealership to be extremely helpful, search for another. That is what I did, & I save myself a couple $1000 in the process. I have nothing against my local dealership, & I may use them in the future. They just weren't interested in helping me find exactly what I wanted, & I went elsewhere. You are the consumer. You call the shots, not them!

    A CLONE of my car, and local. 2015. Red. ES. Manual.

    I have thought about walking in and offering them $7,000 cash just to see what they would say. I could probably get around $4,000-$4,500 for mine, and start over with a car that only has a few hundred miles on the odometer for about $3,000 out-of-pocket!

    I don't think this car is actually at this dealership anymore. Last time I saw it listed online it was at one of those high-interest-we-finance-anybody outfits.

    My 14 mirage was the first new car i've bought, and other than normal maintenance, mostly trouble free. Has a loud and obnoxious starter sometimes, though, and the 10 year warranty did not cover my heat shield that got loose. Fun to drive, go-cart-like car. After 100,000 kms now or 60k miles my rear drum brakes need doing. Front discs done at 60k and tires. Drives straight as an arrow smooth like an audi in a weird way

    Top Fuel was spot on about the high cost of the hid headlights. That reason alone is why I wouldn't consider the GT, if I were purchasing for myself. I'd go for the middle model SE instead. A few very important upgrades like cruise control that the ES doesn't have.
