    And the author was even somewhat complementary of the Mirage. Does this mean the Mirage is finally being accepted?

    My goodness, did Mitsubishi ever take a lot from the VW GTi playbook for the new front grille's look.

    Also, finally they got soft-touch interior pieces. My no. 1 pet peeve with my Mirage is that my left elbow rests on rock-hard plastic. SUPER uncomfortable. And my right arm just kinda dangles in the air when I'm not shifting gears. Arm rest in the middle is a great addition.

    Maybe some Mitsu big wig executives read the Mirage Forum?!

    If they are smart they would. It is kind of a living, breathing focus group and test fleet combined.

    Maybe, but I doubt it. With 140,000 units sold last year complaints are going to filter up, it is slower, but it happens.

    As for the CNN article, many others could do as well not showing a negative bias.


    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    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!
