I just bought another as-is Mirage that was traded to a new car dealership.
I did not pay the asking price in the ads...
Top trim 5-speed. PLUS winter tires on steelies! PLUS aftermarket hitch! PLUS factory body kit! PLUS rain deflectors. PLUS all the chromed plastic bling you could throw at it! Talk about gilding the lily.
Regular readers will recognize this car from the cheap used Mirages thread -- it was advertised at this dealership for nearly a year. Started at $5500, eventually dropped to $3450.
I paid $2900 + tax & licence. ($300 more than my first Mirage.) I pick it up tomorrow AM.
