Why does Waze want to send me around the track instead of on it?
No, it wasn’t a bright neon color. It’s grey :( Cost under $12k out the door with all fees included and a CVT though, so whatever. It’s my sister’s and it’s everything I was hoping for.

Well you are in luck because I, the author, am here to elaborate. This is a summary of how I spent my afternoon yesterday. It…
Don't you love the Mirage? I hope it's not just the new one....
If I were to buy a cheap econohatch today... I'd get a Mirage and then hit up The Tire Rack for a set of 15s.. Then, AutoX Madness..
A full 3 cylinders of mumbling misery, making 74 tortured horsepower.
I'm an F1 fan too!
