    Costco Shopping in a Mirage

    Just out of curiosity, how many Mitsubishi Mirage owners have a Costco membership? If so, what can you pack in the back with the back seats folded down and at full carrying capacity?

    We use Speck for our Costco runs but rarely need to fold down the back seats. Occasionally put things on the back seats though.

    I go to costco with the mirage a lot. If I have to get the large paper towels and tp etc I cant really take the mirage unless in alone and it's a bit hard to fold down the seats with little kids strapped into them lol

    I fill it up to the brim in the back seats and anything lightweight/not breakable goes in the cargo carrier.

    It still got you to where you needed to go though right? No bottoming out, slight dip in the mpg was all Im guessing?

    6 turkeys, 13 pies among the items purchased from Costco. A little overkill, but I was helping my neighbor with her catering business after she had a stroke. I had to be careful going over bumps, and had to shift at a much higher RPM to keep up with traffic. I definitely won't be packing it this much again.
