    2014 Mitsubishi Mirage .... DONE!!

    After hitting its 2nd deer, this car was written as a total loss!! Bummer as was a very dependable car. It was my commuter car and have decided not to replace it at this time. I got a surprised good check for the loss.

    I believe the Toyota Echo shares some similarities with the Mirage. Not well liked by car critics, but adored by actual owners. Sadly, the no frills era of 2000-05 Toyota Echo doesn't really exist much any more.

    Some people just want cheap, reliable, basic transportation. I don't even consider the Mirage ES a base trim level any more, & it has gained more & more features each year.

    If it isn't rusted out much, a Toyota Echo with 104,000 miles on it should have a lot of life left in it. For $2,000 I don't blame you for considering it at all.

    Sorry to hear about a deer taking out your Mirage. Sadly, that happens all to frequently! Maybe when the Echo wears out, you'll be back in a cheaper Mirage again!

    We now have a winner for most deer hit in a Mirage!

    If you can find an echo hatchback those are great cars and the NZ-FE family of engines they had were absolutely bullet proof.

    It was a CVT and found its death by Deer! 88k miles and was going strong. Bought for 7800 ish in 2016 with 21k miles. Survived 1 vicious deer hit where I got it back fixed and this hit was determined not worth the money to fix per value of car. Was really a good vehicle ... but was offered a check from Insurance company I could not pass up. Would consider buying another in future but right now it was an extra vehicle... so will see as far as replacing. This site was fantastic help and reference. Thank you all!!
