Just out of curiosity, I ran some queries in the garage to see the breakdown of DIY vs. automatic transmission owners. (2012+ Mirages/Space Stars/Attrages only, not other makes.)

(Only about a dozen or so owners have NOT listed transmission type on their garage pages. Have you??)

As of today...

[ADMIN UPDATE: see newer, 2018 stats further down this thread.]


197 (53%)

Manual transmissions

175 (47%)

CVT automatics


That's a bit of a surprise!

I wonder what the transmission sales ratio is in the various countries represented on the forum.

Because I'd be willing to bet the ratio in North American Mirage sales is nowhere close to those percentages!
