Build Quality

Medium risk

Medium

Build quality refers to how well the vehicle was put together or assembled. For example, some people may notice that interior and/or exterior panels may be out of alignment, parts are not properly secured or they tend to fall off easily.
Car depreciation

59% after 5 years

While different cars depreciate at different rates, it's a good rule of thumb to assume that a new car will lose approximately 20 percent of its value in the first year. In five years, the average depreciation rate is 50% of their initial value.
Recalls

12 Recalls

A recall is issued when a manufacturer or NHTSA determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards. Manufacturers are required to fix the problem by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund, or in rare cases repurchasing the vehicle.

Car is compact and was a very good price brand new. Nothing spectacular about this car other than it is reliable. Don't have a passenger visor mirror, no passenger arm rest, or a middle compartment between the driver and passenger seat. The noise from outside the car is pretty loud,

I test drove the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage, Nissan Versa, and Chevrolet Spark. I bought the Spark. The Versa was nixed because I really wanted a hatchback. It was an otherwise fine car. I really wanted to love the little Mirage but a test drive on the interstate killed the deal.
