Cheapest used Mirage so far @ $1k. Includes free bullet hole!

$1000 for base 2014 5-speed ... "needs starter"

Description & pics indicate it's lived a hard life so far!

Is that a gunshot hole in the rear door? There's a closer up pic in the ad. Maybe he was angry and shot it when the original engine went bad! If I was going to shoot my car in a fit of anger, but still actually needed to be able to drive it to work, that's where I would shoot it. Horizontal shot, not down (fuel tank).

Driven 156,000 km = 97k miles

Manual transmission
Only 25 k km on engine
new windshield, front shocks
needs a starter
Located in Quebec - unfortunately waaay too far outside my beater radius.
