    Hopefully they will have one. I intentionally reserve the cheapest sub-compact they have on their website...because they almost never have one available when I show up at the airport. So they end up giving me some mid-size SUV for the same price.

All kidding aside, have you tried a test drive from a dealer or used car lot?
    POTD (Post of the Day) particularly because of the reference of Mirage owners on a 'spectrum' haha. But were guns used in the Hobbit stories? I forget. Maybe that glowing blue Orc sword - Sting was it called??

    Coming from a bowhunter - no guns, but many arrows were shot on the "Lord of the Rings" series.

    Every arrow Legolas shot in The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) -

    It was an Elvish dagger made during the 1st age. It just looks like a sword in a Hobbit's hands.

    Legolas was unmatched in bow fighting IMO. Probably the best human archer was Bard the Bowman who took out Smaug the Fire Drake with a lucky shot. In real history, skeletons dug up in England from the 15th century, showed the right arm bones more dense from repeated practice using the heavy English longbow. The Battle of Agincourt pretty much signaled the decline of up close fighting with horse and armor for projectiles.

    Okay, back on track. I really would like someone with a manual to rent me their car from Turo. There is not a manual in my area that I can find. If you have either a hatch or a g4 I'd really like to rent it. (if you have a manual) Picking up my enterprise rental in the morning. I will let ya know what I think in a day or two. Thanks guys!

    Well, enterprise screwed me. I called before heading over there and they said the mirage could not go out because of safety reasons. Apparently, it had a busted windshield (right). I have another rented on turo for Monday, but it has a 200-mile restriction so I won't be able to go to flagstaff. And it is an auto.... and it's 2019. Is there a difference in the interiors in the 2019 and 2020 models?

    Enterprise offered me a spark. I should have taken it for the comparison.. I might do that at a later date.

    Cruise control & 6-way adjustable driver's seat become standard on all trim levels in 2019. Thus, the only difference would be automatic climate controls verse manual climate controls. A 2019 ES & LE would have A/C, but with manual controls. 2019 SE & GT would have the auto controls. All 2020 Mirages have auto climate controls. That was the only change in 2020 that I can think of.

    A 2017-2020 SE & GT didn't have any changes over that time period. All the changes impacted the ES &/or LE models only.
