    Overheard snippet of conversation between 2 guys in a pickup truck:

    "Look at the tiny wheels on that car!!"

    "Mitsubishi eh..Is it All-wheel drive then?" coworker in the parking lot during the winter.

    "Mitsubishi Mirage, is it fast?" from an Echo driver at a red light.

    "I get why they call it a mirage!"

    Or

    "where is it?, You told me it's right in front of me"

    Both from my co-workers.

    I used to get a lot of "wth would you want one of those(very reliable cheap to operate and repair cars) when you work on them all day?"

    Typically from someone who makes less money, rents, has 8 years of truck payments to make, and thinks car dealers are honest people.

    lol, the interest is crazy on a lot of these car loans. Since going into Accounting l calculate problems in my textbook on what some people pay and it's easily more than they can afford! Applies to real life too.

    Not really a comment: but I had someone slow down after passing me today so they could take a picture.

    I'm guessing it's all the coroplast stuck on it, not because they were amazed by the tiny 14" wheels.

    Many comments over four years don't recall all.

    Asked if diesel... I wish...

    Best off top of my head:

    Great color
    Mitsu built good. Good Warranty.
    Must be cheap to operate.
    Positive comments once people realize how big interior is...

    Negative

    Embarassed driving girl car?
    Wouldn't be caught dead in any Mitsu.
    Hope it's your girlfriends/wife's car
    How many times has the car acted up.

    It’s a glorified golf cart!
    (Um, ok)
    It’s a go-cart!
    (This might be it’s second nickname)
    I love the color!
    (I agree)

    I did over 2k uber rides in my green Mirage so I got all kinds of comments including "I love the color. It was easy to spot!" and "Cancel the ride, we can't fit all in there."
    My favorite was when as#holes order a regular uber (mostly consisting of subcompacts and compacts) and then cuss me out because I can't fit 4 passengers and all their luggage.
