Mirage, less than 1/2 the milleage of the other cars.... also depends on the transmission it comes with.

Mmm.... geez.... I would still say Mirage...... the milleage is so low.... not knowing what the car has been through is another toughy..... I honestly wouldnt know if the other 2 cars would make it to 200K on an auto.

Toyota, no contest. Toyota had their quality together back in those years when others did not. Toyotas run for freaking ever.

Yeah the Yota looks the best to me. My girl's mom had an 87 that went strong for 350K and then something dumb like a rad went so she traded it in.

I would go for that Mitsu, with the Camry a close second.

Anyway, as long as it still runs well its still good. When it starts to clunk out is when you'll see if it was worth it or not...
