Hi Slayer7.62, I think I replied to the wrong person in this thread. I'd test drive the purple 5 speed manual. I have a 2014 thunder grey Mirage myself bought brand new from the dealer. Had to wait 3 weeks or more for the car. Overall my Mirage is small on the road, and not that fast but kinda peppy if you get the manual. It's very loud engine with the windows down. Handles very well* and better ride than Toyota or Honda.

Really loud engine. 5 Speed manual is OK but 4th gear rattles from day one. Not the whole car, but the gear box. Not sure why. Stalls super easy. Not everyone's cup of tea.
*low speeds the steering has no feel
