My Mirage has 170,000 miles on it and has had no major repairs or problems. It still gets great gas mileage even after putting larger than factory standard tires on it. Many fellow high school students used to make fun of how small my car was. Too bad for them I only paid $2,000 six years ago for a car that has outlasted most of their $4,000-$6,000 cars.
Ggrea tas mileage, low ride, turning radius, and easy oil change.
The only comment I have is the standard factory tires are too small and wear very fast with my speedy curvy country driving. Just buy a larger set.
