Thread: Another U.S. auto journalist buys a Mirage (Autoevolution.com)

    Another U.S. auto journalist buys a Mirage (Autoevolution.com)

    Worth a peek:

    There's a long and drawn-out story behind why I, as an alleged "expert" in the auto industry, wound up owning a brand-new 2021 Mitsubishi Mirage ES hatchback. Anyone who legitimately thinks I'm an expert on anything is bound to be disappointed, but I digress. But in the three or so weeks I've owned the much-maligned car so far, it's had a profound impact on me.

    I'll have to admit I chuckled at the headline of the story...

    But the one thing I absolutely couldn't stand about the 2021 Mirage ES hatchback was the puny, diminutive, positively hopeless set of Falken 165/65 14-inch all-season tires that came standard with the car. Not only are they the easiest thing on the Mirage to make fun of, but it makes every interstate on or off-ramp feel like a session at the roller derby, so to say, it handled like it was on roller skates, and that's being kind to it.

    I wonder if the journalist knows his bigger wheels and tires could void out his warranty if (doubtful but possible) it grenades his CVT7? Or that skinny wheels cut thru snow quite well?
