    Thanks. I don't mind at all looking after my elderly folks. How they put up with me as a kid, I have no idea.

    Unfortunately, things escalated again last week, so my return to the forum has been...
  2. Just sold my 2000 Chevy Metro 1.0/5-spd. Gone in 60 minutes! Fastest sale ever.

    My 2000 Metro winter beater is gone.

    And I have NEVER seen so much interest when selling a car before (in several decades of selling about a car a year).

    Details:

    Looks like it was working again by the time I was notified about the latest problem.

    Terrible timing: I've been preoccupied with a family health issue and have hardly been on the forum in the...

    I've listened to more than a couple of Micra and Mirage videos from people who think their engines are making funny noises...

    That takes the cake!

    Not ambiguous.



    Worse before?! Yikes.

    Haven't been on the forum much or done anything with the Mirage in a couple of weeks!

    I've been preoccupied with an ailing family member.

    Things are looking up though. Hope to be more...

    ^ wow!

    My crapcan Miata had a lien on it - showed up in the Ontario used vehicle package. Similar situation to yours - old loan that hadn't been marked "paid". The seller cleared it up with a...

    It's a known problem with some early Mirages. Several members have experienced it. Some got a warranty repair, others had it happen out of warranty (or bought a used car that had the problem).

    Once you look at the car, it's worth asking if the price is negotiable.

    Almost every seller expects to get somewhat less than their asking price (unless they specifically say "firm price" in the...

    Beautiful pic! Going along the north shore of Lake Superior is a very pretty drive.

    Tell us about the blowout! Puncture? It almost looks like a sidewall failure.

    Supply & demand. Quebec accounts for around 50% of all Mirage sales in Canada, despite having only ~25% of the population.

    So there are more used Mirages in Quebec than anywhere else.

    Class act, KevMcKenzie!

    I agree, this community is top notch. We have our moments, but for the most part people are friendly, helpful & more or less try to keep things that way.

    That's what I figured.

    I was wondering about it too.

    I love my SG. I use the "Instant" MPG gauge.

    FYI: the SG fuel cutoff value was too high for the Mirage. Mine was set at ~24, and I don't know if that was the default value, or a setting I forgot...

    Wow! I've never seen a flat tire do so much damage.

    Glad you lived to tell the tale ... and hunt for replacement parts!

    They forgot to tighten the plug?? Oh man. Small claims court?

    1800 gets you a decent engine... and a worn out clutch, transmission and wonky rear axle. :-D

    Got the crapcan Miata out of storage & serviced the brakes.

    And then parked the crapcan Mirage for the rest of the summer and early fall.

    Welcome!

    That's quite a fun car collection you've got. I love the oddballs (Mirages included!) among the more expected classics.

    I don't think the hole (normally covered by the bumper cover & bumper bar) to access inside the boxed "frame rails" is big enough to get a wrench inside with any wiggle room. I'm guessing it's an...

    Thanks, Mark.

    You're probably right, but I'm done for the time being!

    I'm not even looking at the cheap Mirage ads any more since I got the white one. That used to be a daily habit.

    That's the new owner driving away.

    I may come to regret this, since the next Mirage seems to be a bit of a problem child.

    Yup.

    My ScanGauge works fine. But a cheap bluetooth OBD adapter I got on eBay caused problems.
