The little bugger has been cheap to operate and has given me almost no problems, so I can't really complain.
    Glad you are happy with it. I am very interested in one, for sure. If it works out you know I will announce here.
    There is an new DE within my budget, $10,000, and a color I am not real fond of. I really want the cruise control, the alloys are nice, fog lamps standard. I will pay near 11 grand for a 5 Speed SE if I can. There is some advertised in southern CA for $10,600, but it includes the $250 Military Discount. So, I figure even around $10,800-$10,900 should be entirely possible, Right? Fees and License.. maybe OTD around $11,300 (we have no state tax)?
    I cannot spend 12 grand on a car, anyway.... so there is That.

    Crossing Fingers.

    What issues "have" you had? Anything common you heard of as of yet? What are the likes/dislikes? Good to hear from an owner. I just found it a bit slow and loud on the freeway. Would really have liked a *flat* folding rear seat.

    I am 210cm, or 6'10". I daily drive a 2018 Mirage G4, and I don't know how. It is also a 5-speed variant. Every day, I get into this vehicle. I have no clue how I fit. I can't drive a god damn Honda Civic, but I can operate a Mirage. The world is incorrect.

    My last car was bound to fail (and conveniently did right before I got to trading it in, so in truth, I had very few choices since I was about 20 miles away from home), and that's how I ended up with one of these. I was looking at a Mirage initially as a joke, but now I believe the Mirage is the one laughing at me.

    The Mitsubishi dealer gave me more than enough for my old car, and the payments aren't much more than my old car. I might keep this as my secondary vehicle, and have a faster (aka anything else) ride for other purposes.

    This is a surprisingly good winter car, even with the bloody bike tires. More on this later.




    To any of you reading this, the Mitsubishi Mirage family checks off every box of what a car can do, and that is it. It will do everything it is designed to do, and nothing that it is not designed to do. It is very simply made, to its benefit and detriment. You'll probably like it more if you're not literally almost 7 feet tall.

    My coworker is 6'10" and says my Mirage is "not for grownups." I am begging you to post a picture and prove him wrong.
