    I'm 33. Do all sorts of different stuff like Screwber/Lyft/Mystery shops/work on cars/landlord/etc. Favorite movie that I ever purchased is a Japanese OVA called "My Dear Marie" although I haven't watched it in many years (should change that).

    As for the Mirage, I live in craphole Illinois and we use a lot of garbage rust rocks here that eats up cars so I put a lot of stuff away for the winter. So I was going to buy a Toyota Yaris hatchback but Toyota decided to discontinue them (and I won't buy a Mazduh) so enter the Mirage. It was cheap, has a good warranty, was comfortable for my garbage back and legs, came with a manual that didn't hurt me to shift, and gets good gas mileage. I plan on running the thing into the ground until it falls apart.


    -Karl B. Relevant vehicle for here is a 2019 Mirage ES 5 speed hatchback. Lots of Toyotas and old Chryslers also.

    How have your rideshare customers liked riding in your Mirage?

    They don't. The Mirage gets used for personal use.

    I have a 2009 Toyota Corolla LE that I bought secondhand that gets used specifically for tax deduction type stuff... ride share, mystery shopping, volunteering for the shiba rescue that I do stuff for, and so forth.

    Is Chicago as dangerous as the news reports?

    You ever consider the Mirage for ride share? Will uber even allow it?

    I've seen Mirages out there working hard. I don't want to drive a stick in crapcago especially for 10 hours a day. Plus I mostly stick to taking people home from the airport who usually have luggage so the Mirage hatchback isn't a good choice for that. My Yaris hatchback I used before was larger and still struggled with big suitcases. So that's one of the reasons I switched to the Corolla for taxi duty.

    As for people not liking it, I'll be the first to tell them to piss off and get out then hahahaha. I could care less about how the passengers like or dislike my vehicle. It's clean, well kept, and the AC works great.

    As for ****cago, yes there are a lot of very dangerous places you don't want to go. That's why I stick with taking people home from O'Hare.

    Yeah I think Uber Eats might be better option with the Mirage. Regular Uber would be more profitable Ive heard.
