Hikes, fitness and exploring the San Francisco Bay Area where I live is part of the good life that ClassyBlackGirls enjoy! The way that the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area is laid out however, means that you have to travel to get there! Luckily I had the Mitsubishi Mirage to take me there to add to the adventure of my FIRST SERIOUS HIKE!
RELATED Humor >> Read my post on my first serious HIKE
I was on a hike with my hiking group, the 510 Hikers, and decided to take my Mitsubishi Mirage for a spin! The Mirage was the perfect car to go over the hills and through the woods up to the Oakland Hiking trail that we went on.
This neat little 3 cylinder took a liking to hugging the woodsy curves.
Getting Lost was No Sweat
Being an Oakland girl I was a little embarrassed that I got a little lost (in Oakland) after ALL I did not want to be too late for the hiking group picture!...but luckily I had the easy and trusty navigation system that comes inside of the Mitsubishi Mirage and it got me there just in time!
Tight Parking was a Breeze
The parking stalls in the hiking parking lot were very small. Luckily the Mirage handled business and I fit in just right! There is no doubt that this Mirage is small, but it turns so easily and it fits everywhere. When you live in the City and its not easy to find parks, the sheer size of this automobile is a life saver!
What I loved about the Mirage:
The interior space was awesome granted the car is small.
This car gives you bang for your buck.
The Mitsubishi Mirage is freaking awesome on gas! I didn't go to the gas station all week. *WIN*
The bench seats were comfortable and easy to climb in and out.
Okay so I did party a little bit in the Mirage!
While its definitely on the economy side of the auto world it had some neat creature comforts like the Navigation, Push Button Start and the Valet Key which was surprising!
What I Wished was a Little Better:
I DO wish that the interiors were a little more upgraded.
It was also a FAB Blue Color and made me feel youthful!...In fact the Mirage comes in several bright and fabulous colors. I know that I made mention of this a few times, but the price makes this car so amazing that if you are budget conscious I recommend that you take a spin in the Mitsubishi Mirage!
