    She got hit in front of the house around 2:45 this morning. Whomever hit it took off and drove back around to grab something out of the street that fell off their car. They forgot a few pieces of their tail light. Take her by the bodyshop tomorrow after work for an estimate and I'll go from there. It is drivable, though there is rubbing of the back bumper cover on the tire when making a turn or going over a bump.

    Saw that on FB, sorry Rich. It will probably buff right out but it will fuck up your value when you go to trade it in.

    FiST has been in the shop since last Saturday. I have had a '17 Mitsubishi Mirage as a rental. I could've gotten a Sentra(or "medium sized" car per my insurance). Since I had heard nothing but bad things about the Mirage, I wanted to see for myself just how "bad" it is. When I take a right turn at 35 mph it howls like a coyote in heat. When I put the tranny in "Sport" mode it likes to go above 4k RPM on a regular basis. The engine is noisy and not very smooth. It sucked down a 1/2 tank of gas in the first three days I had it. On the third day I realized that the Florida plates had expired last month. I filled her up and did some math(4.4 gals vs 169 miles) and realized that she wasn't that much of a pig after all(37.7 mpg), just suffering from a tiny ass fuel tank.
    On the upside, the rear windows go all the way down, instead of 1/2-2/3 way down like on most cars. With a decent set of tires this car would be a lot of fun. Also I drive this car a lot harder than I do the ST. It's tiny on the outside, but inside it isn't cramped at all. Not a car I would buy for a daily driver, but as a rental it isn't all that bad.
