    Remember the crushing review of Guy Fieri's restaurant in Times Square. I think I found the car equivalent. The New York Times reviews the Mitsubishi Mirage. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/25/automobiles/autoreviews/its-cheap-but-is-it-overpriced.html?_r=0

    Lord, you would hope something like that would get 50 MPG, but it does not even pull that off.

    Good.

    It's time some of these manufacturers get their feet held to the fire in something other than Car & Driver.

    This machine beats walking, of course, but not by much.

    This reminds me of Roger Ebert's zero-star reviews of movies. Best writing ever.

    That's tremendous stuff. The last few car reviews I've read in big papers were shill jobs. They'd have called this car "peppy" and "fun to drive."

    And for everything that sucks on this car, I'd say the left-side ignition button would drive me most crazy.

    How has nobody made a joke about me and my car in this thread yet?
    You guys disappoint me.

    I read the bit Sunday in print. Best writing in the whole edition.
