I was stuck on the west side after work because when it rains during rush hour in Denver everyone loses their damn minds. So I decided to kill time by test driving this Mitsubishi Mirage.

I really wanted to like it, and to be honest I almost could. The problem is it has the worst clutch I’ve ever driven. ‘Light’ is not a strong enough word for it. The manual gearbox wasn’t good either, but if the clutch was stiffer I’d maybe be willing to put up with it. It’s a shame. The rest of it is a perfectly decent car.
