Love this car
May 30, 2018
I bought this car on impulse and only read the bad reviews after buying it! I tried to return the vehicle and get something else, but that proved too difficult and expensive. I quickly overcame my buyer's remorse and decided that I liked the car, that is the most important thing despite all of the negative reviews. I range between 42 and 47 miles per gallon driving in my local area. Just took my Mirage on a 1200 mile round trip from Minneapolis to Devils Tower Wyoming and the black hills. Mileage dropped as you would expect when averaging 80 MPH, but I was still getting around 35 MPG. This car does not handle wind well and when passing larger vehicles, I noticed a jerking of the car as I passed those larger vehicles, for some reason. Overall, this car is great for putzing around and commuting. I am 6'4" tall and 245 pounds and I have plenty of leg room while driving. I feel comfortable in this car, not so in a honda civic I bought a few years ago. I got rid of that car quick, no leg room. The car also handles well in snow.
