I was jsut taking a look at Canaidan car sites again because I know they have some cool cars that we don’t get. After searching Mitsu and Chevy sites, I looked at the Spark and Mirage. They start around $10k up there. That’s because they have competition—the sub-10k Nissan Micra.

There is one tradeoff, though, particularly with the Spark. In Canada, the manual transmission only seems to be available on the base model. Down here, you can get the stick on any Spark.

The cheapest Mirage or Spark in the US is $13k!

They should lower the prices down here, too. More people will be able to afford new cars, and it can help the economy, too.
