    It makes me wonder if they drove a 2017 too, since they specifically mention:

    "the clumsy roly-poly handling"

    I think the 2017 suspension is noticeably improved over the 2014/15. It's still no...

    Related, maybe:
    Thread: The Mirage is a "buy with your head, not with your heart" type of car. Too bad.

    This is fantastic info, Fummins.

    I agree: hate when people post problems, but not the solutions!

    Yes, please update with where/how the cable busted.

    Story time!

    I once had a clutch cable break in a 1982 VW Rabbit in Toronto traffic. Happened at a stop light when I went to shift...

    Here's their latest video for the bottom 2017 models (in which they of course mistakenly show a 2014 or 2015 Mirage, not the latest model)...

    Thanks for the report.



    Wow! That deserves a thread... please! Pics!

    I nearly bought one of these with the factory 8-speed manual transmission. :) (Hi-lo selector on a 4-speed).

    I'd like to know what your 2nd & 3rd choice was, and why.

    Based solely on reviews, I think I'd be most interested in the IA after the Mirage. Supposedly it drives very well, and fuel economy with...

    Hope you get it sorted out.

    Any chance we can see a video of the car when it's done?



    Please keep us posted on this - we've had a discussion going on stiffening the OEM axle.

    Maybe "paint-less" repair possible?

    Welcome to the forum! Neat intro story.

    There's no argument that you got good value for money. The car has been regularly winning awards & recognition for that since it was introduced.

    And that'll just make the price of used EV's even more attractive. :)

    I'd say if you can find a good deal on a used one with solid dealer/aftermarket/owner support and enough range that meets...

    Congrats on the cars, Pryme!



    Ha! I've said before: the Mirage's clutch made my Firefly 1.0 (Metro) clutch feel like driving a dump truck by comparison.

    Thanks for the info, Pryme.

    Hopefully you have a dealership near you for service/warranty purposes. A lot of people don't.

    Yes, still building in Thailand. That's their main production line.

    I'm not sure if PH Mirages are intended only for local consumption.

    Moral of the story: with nearly the same specs as a Porsche 356, keep the Mirage for 50 years and profit!!

    I'm pretty sure every Leaf sold is still covered by a battery warranty. 8 years? I think that applies to all EV's.

    Also, batteries don't typically fail entirely. It's usually a module or two...

    And with the Chevy Bolt available now, used Leaf prices should be under even more pressure.

    Well, really that applies to any of the "older" used EV's with ~100 mile range.

    djkenny: if finances are your main concern, considering how little you drive, isn't your best choice to just keep your older car (assuming it's in good condition)?
