I just recently purchased my Mirage in 2010. I was slightly concerned buying a car that was 11 years old, but it honestly was all I could afford. I absolutely love my car now! I get about 32 mpg, and have to fill up the tank every two weeks! With the small gas tank that means about $25 every two weeks for gas! The only thing I miss is cup holders! mine is kind of a stripped down model which is good because I prefer window cranks but it's almost impossible to take a beverage on the go!
Yours sounds just like mine! I love it to death and pretty much have no cupholders. I fill up the tank every two weeks or so and have never paid over $20 for a full tank of gas. It has been such a great car, I've only had it two years myself and it has been hit twice while parked on the street :( he is now totaled and I'm having such a hard time moving on to something new. They don't make mirages anymore!
