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!

By the way - what makes you say the car you listed has A/C? When I opened the ad, it says A/C: NO.
If the Mirage had 100+ hp (making it less economical) & was priced the same as a Honda Fit, I would own a Honda Fit. Most of that would be driven by much better well-established Honda dealerships near me. A highly discounted Mirage is affordable, reliable, & very economical. I don't think anything else is even close to it in the U.S. It's why I own one.
My Mirage turned over 29,000 miles yesterday, & I have been very happy with it. If I had the need, I wouldn't hesitate to buy a 2019 ES Manual today. It's really your ES PLUS MANUAL in Canada, & I feel it's equipped quite nicely (more standard features have been added the past two years). I only buy manual vehicles. Thus, the other 4 trim levels (RF, LE, SE, GT) in the U.S. are irrelevant to me. You couldn't add anything to any vehicle that would trump a manual transmission for me.
He is an interesting guy, He speaks from some level of experience but I don't think his experience includes a lot of the modern Mitsubishi cars. Older mits really do like to burn oil, but I know of a few 2016 Outlander sports that are over 100k and little to no oil is being burned. Honestly I just avoid most big youtube mechanics. If I have a question I ask my personal mechanic.
I've seen just as many 3 year old oil burning Mitsubishi's as I have 3 year old Toyota trucks with the frames rusted out.

Not necessarily extra fees, just advertising a loss leader that isn't available. From an Alberta news station:
Full disclosure, this and worse goes on in the U.S., too.
