With as reliable as the Mirages have been, that sounds like a good deal despite the high miles.

^ They dropped the asking price to $2k on that Mirage last week. And it still hasn't sold.



I was prepared to go get it -- even tentatively organized a road trip with my sister-in-law whose good friend lives near there, so happy impromptu visit for the co-driver!


But I got bad vibes from the seller - he selectively answered questions, skipping some important ones (like oil change frequency & maintenance records).


11 hours round-trip is too far to go kick tires, even at that price.


Another Darin-priced Mirage will come up closer to home, eventually.
