$850 Mirage

Someone on MirageForum just picked up this scratch 'n' dent special with electrical issues for $850 on Facebook marketplace:

It was apparently filthy, possibly not well maintained, and had electrical gremlins (turns out it was an improperly installed aftermarket rear dome light that was shorting out).

The short was affecting multiple systems, and the seller said the car "would not start". I asked the person who bought it for more info, and he says...

It prevented a lot of things from working. Door locks, the fast key, radio, etc. I had to put the key into the slot on the dash to get the car to start.
It's a 2015 top spec model with 85k miles and CVT.

Thread: I might have out-cheaped the cheap! (Cheapest roadworthy used Mirage?)
