Consumer Reports: Mirage is a terrible, reliable car!

FYI, CR just came out with its used car ranking in the Sept 2018 issue.

Of 12 cars in the subcompact category, only 4 had a "good" reliability rating. The Mirage was one of them. (Only one reliability rating of "excellent", which went to the Yaris.)

Mirage had the lowest used price, the 2nd best observed fuel economy at 37 MPG for the CVT (after the Smart Fortwo @ 39).

Yet they ranked the car at the BOTTOM of the list, due to the influence of their subjective "Road Test Score" (29/100) in the tally.

CR hates the Mirage.
