I had a 2013 Prius C back in 2014/2015 when gas prices were much higher. Sold the car to my girl friend. It's still in the family. I've been driving my 2006 F150 Super Crew with the 5.4 Triton motor to work for about 7 months now and got sick of the poor gas mileage and expensive fill ups every week.
Started looking for a decent used car but anything in the ranged i wanted to spend was either much older or very high miles.
A local Mitsubishi dealer near me is advertising Mirages and Mirage G4's for a decent discount. 1K is from Mitsubishi. I ended up getting about 6K off of a Mirage G4 ES with a few options. Out the door price was a about 13.5K.
We'll see how it does long term for durability and fuel mileage. At least it comes with a good power train warranty 10 years/100K miles. Another perk of the dealership is 1st oil change is free and everyone after that is only $5.00 up to 100K miles.
Going to track the mileage on Fuelly.
Anyways thanks for reading my long post and am glad to be back.
