Awesome little gem
Started to get engine knock at 110,000km, however it's just timing; very easily fixed and only appears on startup when cold.
The Mirage is an excellent little gem. Reliability is awesome, keep up with oil and water like usual and this car will reward. Never had a problem since the day it was bought.
The car's performance is slightly better than average for other manufacturers of the same capacity. My car does not have air-con or power teering; however other than that the Mirage is very comfortable and feels sporty as the car sits so low. Mirages sit very low.
For any people buying a first car, definitely go with the Mirage.
Installation of stereo/speakers/amps etc is very easy, with the front components being easy to remove.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
