    If you really want to save bucks, look for a 2014-15 with around 100k miles or less and a couple dents and dings. Those cars are going for around $4k and they're still as reliable as the sun.


    Simplify and add lightness.

    Manual vs CVT fuel economy

    This isn't really a problem...but it is a consideration when shopping for a Mirage...

    Resale value of the Mirage isn't good. So if you buy a new one, do your homework and stack all the rebates and incentives that you possibly can. This is not a car that should be purchased anywhere near MSRP. Some dealers discount more than others, so shop around and buy out of your area if you have to.
    There is no significant difference in fuel consumption in the numbers published by owners between CVT and manual in my country.

    Other than the wheel alignment problems (rear AND front!!) I have not heard of any problems with the car at all. The Jatco CVT has a bad reputation for dureability. I don't know if this is still an issue.
