2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Review : Long Term Report 1

My colleagues at CarAdvice HQ in Sydney were suspiciously happy to see me upon my return from a week out of the office for my honeymoon. Smiles. Laughter. Something must be up… The grins and giggles that greeted me reached their climax when I got to my desk to find the key of a new – sorry, my new, they insisted – Mitsubishi Mirage long-termer and bright green key ring that correlates with unfortunate accuracy to the car’s paint colour...
