    My friend has a Mazda 2. Fun little car, but man that thing is cramped! And of course the Mirage is cheaper and still gets better fuel economy despite the Mazda having the Sky Active whizz bang...

    If the Internet car enthusiast community actually bought and owned the cars that they claimed to like, Mazda will be selling a lot more cars than they actually do now.

    Hey Darin. I'm often here I just usually lurk. My Mirage just turned over 50,000 km this month. :)

    It's been completely trouble free for the nearly 8 years that I've had it. Can't say the same for...

    Spot on. I sit in my brother's Subaru XV (Crosstrek in the US market), or in my father-in-law's VW Lamando (an Asian market car, roughly the equivalent of the Passat) and think "WTF, am I in a...

    I'm the "I know my car" guy. I have two vehicles; I drive until I get the low fuel warning light (meaning that in the Mirage, the gauge starts blinking). I note...

    All these posts are right in line with my experience. Usually I can have the entire gauge start the "flashing empty" thing, drive another 40-50 km (with the AC on, a good part of it in the infamous...

    I know. I have some background in electrical engineering and the term still triggers me head-scratchin' reflex. But I'm used to hearing it from local shade-tree mechanics by now. At any rate, I've...

    Small note: in "Taglish" (colloquial Filipino, a mix of Tagalog and English), "series" is synonymous with "jumper". It has nothing to do with how the two circuits are electrically connected. :)

    Ah, those infamous "hard plastics".

    Here in the Philippines it rains, and I mean it rains a lot, and hard, for 3-4 months of the year. If it's raining and I open the door, the inner side of that...

    My OEM Hitachi battery lasted me just over four years. I replaced it with a locally made Motolite Enduro "maintenance free" battery (of which I tore off the warranty sticker and refilled when the...

    Mostly not a problem with modern cars (built within the past 20 years, or so). When I was a kid, I often saw cars running in the streets driving around with missing body panels. Older Japanese models...

    It's got 40,494 km on it as of this morning. I think I own the oldest Mirage in this forum!

    The car is holding up very well in the past five years. Never needed anything besides routine...

    Back in the 90's when "twin-cam", "DOHC" and quad-valve were all the rage, my dad bought a "16 Valve" sticker.

    He snipped the "1" off and attached the sticker to the rear window of our Daihatsu...

    I've always wanted an old Mercedes diesel sedan. I'd love to own anything originating from 1953 to 1985, which correspond to Ponton up to the W123 eras.
