    No way would I have a Spark. If I'd won one in a competition I'd send the bloody thing back and request the booby prize.
    I had a Chevrolet Aveo, God, what was I thinking? Must have missed my medication.

    I believe the Spark over here is the same as over there. They were so 'popular' here they pulled out of the UK.

    I'd only buy one to drive to the scrap yard. Yuk.

    That's how we ended up with one. Won it. Used it for a few years, 3 cvt's replaced under warranty before 100k kms. Sold it right after the last one was replaced before it blew up again. The dealer who did the install forgot to tighten some important bolts too. Who needs a balljoint nut anyways. Tie rod ends, those only need to be hand tight, steering is too responsive nowadays.

    My parents have a 2019 spark. The auto tranny is horrible. Check engine light has come on and off twice. Rather sit on stone than the seats.

    Just bought a 2015 mirage.. This car is incredible at what it does. So simple and so effective. 6,2" and it feels perfect.

    Do I wish I bought a Spark: No. Never even made my shortlist.
    Never could get over how bug eyed their headlights looked. If I we're closer to California getting a Spark EV might have been a remote possibility but alas I'm several thousand miles away.

    Just four years ago there was the Dart, Verano, Fiesta, Focus, Sonic, Cruze to choose from. Spark outlived all of them , the last compact/subcompact manual trans car offered by an American brand.

    With American brands turning their back on the market segment, I feel no guilt for buying an import. Small as the compact/subcompact market may be it's bad business to simply pull out. I'm sure Mitsubishi sees their opportunity.

    Hurts on a warm toilet seat, too.
