    2014 Mitsubishi Mirage DE (CVT).

    The Micra has worse fuel economy, but it's far more fun to drive and more comfortable!

    The Mazda2 seemed more solid and better built.

    None of the above. In 2019 I was doing Instacart shopping with my motorcycle so I needed a car for the winter. Fed up piloting auto transmission garbage I bought my 2015 S for $6k. Didn't take long to earn my money back

    I replaced a 1999 Toyota Camry XLE v6. I only bought it in 2020. It had about 266,000 km on it, and the engine was replaced with a 2001 Lexus engine. I actually loved that car, but it was a pig on gas. At a price of $1.51 / L, it cost $100 to fill. Mind you, it was a comfortable ride.

    When I junked it three years later, it had 306,000 km on it. It needed exhaust work anyway, but also the car died on the roadway prompting this replacement.

    Truth be told, I prefer older, boxier and sometimes, bigger cars. Not always big ones though. For example, the only cars I really like from the 2000s would be Nissan Sentras (from 2002 to 2006), Subaru Imprezas (before 2007), and I actually liked Chevy Cavaliers from 2000 to 2006 as well. You get the idea of "shape" or "form" of car I like.

    So I was at home in my Camry. Plain Jane instrument cluster, no screens, nice audio system, etc...

    While searching for this Micra, I was also searching out Kia Rios and Rio5s from before and including 2011, and for Hyundai Accents from 2007 to 2011. I liked the older, but more utilitarian look of such cars, and I find the Micra is about the newest car that fits this description. I hate how newer cars have high belt lines, doors appearing to rise up in the back, ... ick!

    Let's hope my Micra last me a long while!
