I posted about 3 weeks ago after I bought a used 2017 mirage G4 ES CVT. I tinkered on that car the last 3 weeks and got it up to a pretty decent condition. But it slowly started to bug me how it had little marks on the door panel from someone wearing a ring. Scuffs on the door sill, collapsing bolster with high wear. Things that come from someone using it as an appliance. Nothing wrong with it, but not the way I use my cars.
Then Saturday comes around and I go to the dealer for fun (whoops). They gave me a decent trade in as it was the end of the month and I also got an extra $500 since I was trading in a mitsu. Long story short I drove out of there in a 2020 starlight silver mirage LE. Sticker was $17,500 and I got it for $12,999. Not the best deal I've ever seen on here but at about 25% off I'm pretty happy.
