I had just assumed the car was terrible considering it's a Mitsubishi, and it's inexpensive (it's inexpensive, right?). Never liked the Yaris, including the name which sounds like something a pirate would say, and the Aveo is the worst car in the world (not really, but it's not good).

I didn't know Mitsubishi was being bought out by Nissan, but that's probably a good thing. Seems crazy Japan has so many car manufacturers for an island the size of CA.

Now is probably the time to buy a car like the Mirage since used ones should be in good supply, the economy is strong so people are ditching cheap fuel efficient vehicles and going bigger, and as Darin pointed out, the future of the car is uncertain.
