    Mirage warranty repairs -- have you had any done? Or problem-free so far?

    Just wondering if any of you have had to take your cars in for fixes at the dealership. Small or large items, post 'em here.

    On the other hand, if you've gone many km/miles with no problems, definitely feel free post that as well.

    The only big ones I can think of, offhand:

    >>> Some members in southeast Asia/Australia/NZ had the warranty flywheel/ring gear repair to deal with the grinding starter noise. I haven't heard of any more of those lately. Thread: Video: starter problem (Mirage 1.2L CVT) - flywheel defect? Update: warranty repair

    >>> And Donhoot's CVT: Uh-oh CVT problems! (Update: replaced under warranty)

    I had my navigation unit replaced for a defective microphone. Noticed it the day after I took possession.

    Dealership had to order a new unit and got it in 2 days. 2nd unit has worked perfectly.

    Other than that initial defect, car has been perfect in about 6 months of daily use.

    21,000 km since Mar 1st, went in to get CVT checked for surging... turns out it adjusts up n down a lot when cruise is on in high head/cross winds, so not really an issue.
    Everything works as it should so far.
    Will weld for beer.

    I've got a small gripe I'm going to take mine in for at some point if I ever get time...

    Mine is a 5MT and there is a vibration/buzz in the clutch pedal when shifting above 3500 RPM. It's hard to describe, you kinda just have to drive it to understand.

    Bounce it off the revlimiter and then you might not notice it so much! & MetroMPG - live a little, rev that lil' triple up like it yearns to be!!
    I have noticed a delightful whine at over 6kRPM, it sounds awesome (it's quite soft though, hard to hear over wind/road noise in 3 and up) but it works as a great audial shift indicator


    Oh yeah - I'm almost at 8k miles of spirited driving an' nary a complaint, except for: the lack of a turbo.... man would that transform this bugger
    ゼロ

    Our clutch pedal uses a cable, instead of a hydraulic clutch like most cars. The cable will transfer some noise/vibration, and is completely normal.

    Just like I said, our cars use a clutch cable. The evo has a hydraulic clutch.
