But like you...

My problem is we have never had a Mitsubishi dealer remotely close so they don't show up much
Same thing. Nearest dealer to me is 100 km away.

The bulk of Mirages in Canada are sold in Quebec (historically the biggest lovers in Canada of cheap, basic, small cars). So most of them are 200+ km away from me. Not surprisingly, that $1250 one I posted was in Quebec.
