    Hits the nail on the head IMHO (YT review - Carbon edition)

    If you can understand the thick accent, and his tone doesn't put you to sleep, and tolerate the constant throat clearing, this guy describes exactly why a lot of us buy these cars. It's almost like he was reading my mind

    I don't have the patience to watch something that long, but I added a few responses to stupid comments.

    Is it really over an hour long?? A talking head going on about the Mirage?

    Sounds painful, but I'm going to have a look...

    For someone who emphasizes how "underpowered" it is, it's a little surprising that he doesn't know his car's stats. (Says it has 72 hp.)

    Though he is correct in saying it's slower than his 10 year-old Accent.

    He's also wrong that the Mirage is the cheapest new car. You can still get a base, 5-speed, non-AC Spark for just over $10k in Canada. He paid $22k for his Carbon Mirage.
