The gas mileage is insane, and the handling is above average for sure. Mirages feel like go carts, I have a 2014 so 6 years almost and at first there was a novelty to the car. Soon I will be buying a Subaru 5 speed manual base Impreza, or perhaps a Hyundai FWD 5 speed Venue small-cuv.

Maybe better than you would expect, but even with the seat all back, I can't get comfortable like in a 2019 Santa Fe for example, like a rental I had when traveling out West last year. Alberta but I chickened out out driving at the Alberta/BC border lol. Anyways not used to the mountains
I am near Sarnia but this is the internet lol
My friend is 6'6 and probably 330 lbs or so and he could barely fit in my Mirage when I first got it. I love my Mirage but I am tired of it. I was super skinny when I bought my Mirage when I was like 31 I think. So... I will keep my Mirage and customize as I want it is my plan. Gold rims and custom exhaust
It's just my rural commute almost needs a better car, as capable as my Mirage is in so many drives home in the snow at night with no traffic or snowplows and more falcons than cars.
You get the Grand Bend effect around here weather-wise, so I might go AWD, and sedan for once, I was always hatchback eh.
