Has survived Albuquerque car theives and a catastrophic hail storm so far. Makes strangers come up and ask me curious questions. Gets rude slow drivers to stop clogging up traffic when they realize they've been passed on the right by a Mirage.
White with hail dents. I'll get around to fixing some of them.
Has lots of useful doohickies from Amazon like a heated steering wheel cover because I have arthritis and Reynaud's, little trash cans that fit in the door panels to stop my kid from throwing his trash on the floor, and hooks to hang my interminable handbags and work totes from the backs of the seats.
Drowning out the horrendous road noise by playing lots and lots of Spotify content, including plenty of things that I probably have no business letting my kid listen to. Plan to upgrade from the base stereo to the Rockford Fosgate soon.
Enjoy your new Mirage Suzandy. I have a 2014 ES 5 speed manual, and in 5 + years ownership I have enjoyed the car overall. Like any other car purchase, and then car ownership experience, it's never totally perfect --but overall I'd recommend my small hatch.
Reliable and practical and good on gas.
