Every other car I see is a Nissan though. Innumerable. Nissan is just hitting a rough patch that doesnt require a bailout like our manufacturers did.
Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.
Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!
View my fuel log 2017 Mirage ES PLus 1.2 manual: 39.0 mpg (US) ... 16.6 km/L ... 6.0 L/100 km ... 46.8 mpg (Imp)
I predict Hyundai/KIA combined sales will start to surpass Nissan in a few years. I sense Hyundai/KIA are doing a better job of changing with the times. The KIA Soul alone outsells the entire Mitsubishi line up in the United States some years.

Interesting article about Nissan today. Nothing about any “Alliance” platforms.
"Hyundai to make Santa Cruz pickups at Alabama plant in $410 million expansion"
Ironically, American companies move jobs elsewhere. Meanwhile, foreign companies are bringing jobs here. I sort of chuckle when someone says they like buying American. Not sure what that even means any more in the auto world?
It's to bad Mitsubishi isn't making this type of move. The Mitsubishi Triton appears to be a much better pickup than the Santa Cruz design. An affordable small pickup truck would be popular here.
