    We did that a lot too. Couldn’t believe how easy they break. I heard that first on the news many moons ago, theives did that a lot. Much quieter than using a tire iron.

    I really like my Mitsubishi Mirage, & I am very thankful for White Bear Mitsubishi.

    Beyond that, I am not impressed with any automotive company right now.

    Mitsubishi will counter that Honda, Toyota, etc. also too sell stripped down models, without the typical safety features, in developing countries. In order to save money for both Mitsubishi and their 3rd world consumers. India and SE Asia both, drive cars with low safety ratings, not just latin America and their seems to be no issue.

    I dont know how they explain away the weak body frame? Shocking because Mitsu has always worked magic their design teams IMO, blending low cost materials into a good finishes product.

    Terrible article. They used the words of some random salesman trying to sell a truck as some sort of fact. Not once but twice. The bit about not needing airbags due to a robust structure. Lol

    I rode with a guy who always carried a few spark plug chunks with him. We had an incident one day on a major highway with a car driver who was impaired, a moron, road raging, all the above, and I saw firsthand how easily the tempered side glass in a car shattered.

    I guess spark plug ceramic is ideal as there's certainly pieces of it on the highways. Who's to say it wasn't kicked up by another car?

    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!
