    I somewhat agree with you! Subaru & Jeep have a somewhat loyal following that carries them.

    According to Edmunds, Subaru was only second to Toyota in customer brand loyalty in 2017. Honda was...

    According to the clip I shared, his costs were about $150 to add fog lights and cruise to his 2018 Mirage. That includes all the parts and software to do that job.

    He shows a mini VCI he bought...

    The following clip shows how to change items in ETACs. The purpose of the clip was to show how easy it is to enable cruise control on a Mirage. As he is scrolling through the various options that...

    Most of my key rings have one key on them. I don't like clumping keys up, except for my school keys. I keep my school keys on one key ring. I keep a small zippered pouch in my car. When I leave...

    Thanks for the email Dave!

    Since daytime running lights (DRL) have been mandatory in Canada for almost 30 years, it makes total sense for them being a standard feature on your cars. We're...

    Alternators & starters can be rebuilt. The last starter I had rebuilt cost me about $105. It was for a late 1970's model Bolens G174 4WD compact diesel tractor made by Iseki. It has a...

    Sometimes, we focus on the "quirks" of the Mirage, but I like simplicity of its instrument panel. I like the fact that my 2017 Mirage instrument panel can be read without being lit up during the...

    The 2017 manual doesn't mention trim levels being different, but that may have changed in later models?

    I didn't realize DRL were mandatory in Canada. I appreciate Dave & other clarifying that. It may be as simple as activating it on ETACs for those of us in the States? Maybe someone has tried...

    The 2017 Mirage is not like that. Headlight switch in the off position = all lights off (including the instrumental panel).

    The manual even states instrumental panel lights come on when turning...

    I think changing your CVT fluid & filter every 30,000 miles while driving like a normal person would give you the best shot for a long CVT life. Beyond that, I would buy a 5 speed manual next time! ...

    My guess is that most of our Mirages don't have DRL (day running lights) in the U.S.? I don't want to make a total assumptions on that, however?

    Thus, we (Mirage owners) may drive with our...

    So in a case like this, you are using your parking lights. Your car does not have DRL.

    My 2017 Mirage ES MANUAL doesn't have Day Running Lights. If it did, I would have no control over...

    This entire thread has been a bit confusing. Day running lights & parking lights are two different features.

    If a Mirage was equipped with day running lights (DRL), you would have no control...

    You're welcome! I am happy to support a good cause like this, & I hope you have a great day for your ride next weekend!

    If that's the case & she's neglected CVT maintenance, her Mirage has done quite well.
  17. I like the wipers/headlights law, but the...

    I like the wipers/headlights law, but the majority of the states don't have it. I recommend that practice to all of my driving students, even though it's not mandatory in Wisconsin.

    List of 18...

    She may have bought it used? If so, past maintenance may be a guess anyways. Doesn't appear like she'll be on top of things getting done in the future. Making some assumptions, however.

    This is why buying a $125 Autel TS408 tool to clone their $30 MX-sensors seems appealing. Clone the new sensor to your existing codes already in the car, & that is it. You are done. If you run...

    Discount Tire had success reprogramming Steve's cars to his new sensors. According to Steve, it took two Bartec 400 devices working together to make the relearn process happen. I looked up a...

    My guess is that it can't be changed. Speedometers are set up for mi/h or km/h, & the odometers are probably designed to do one or the other, too. I realize the opposite rating is usually shown on...

    It would make it look worst, not better. 5030 mi = 8095 km

    I paid $2.48 for 87 octane E10 last Saturday. 88 octane E15 was $2.43. That's the lowest I've seen for quite some time in our area (SW Wisconsin).

    Since they couldn't reprogram your car, I would have asked them to take their sensor back, too. All tire shops should have clone-able sensors for these situations. Sending customers back to...
