    The Mirage was a fine car. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one at all and have many times.

    Before my Yaris, I had never kept a car more than about three years. I've had it for 14 years this August. It's been a very good vehicle.

    The fact that your Mirage only depreciated $200 after almost 4 years of ownership is pretty amazing. I realize you invested in some aftermarket items, too.

    The nice thing about driving older vehicles like your Yaris is insurance. At some point, a person can just drop it down to only liability insurance. At that point, your cheap transportation becomes even cheaper!

    The Mirage fills a niche that other companies are shying away from. The competition has really dwindled the past few years. I think this will impact the used market, & we may be seeing that already.

    Already done. I'm not paying more for insurance than I did for my car! Crazy *******s still want over $900/year for insurance for bare bones no theft, no collision nothing insurance. No accidents, no tickets(on record anymore). No make any sense.

    Yea, insurance is a racket. We're paying for all those nice buildings insurance companies own plus a whole lot of other things for agents, admin, etc before one dollar gets paid out in claims. Add to that if you collide with someone who doesn't have any, that's a mess beyond any damage that was done to you and/or your vehicle.
