    Yeah, it's not that crazy here ($8k for a 20 year old Camry)

    But I probably could have squeezed another $500-750 (so, around 4500) if I was willing to put up with more tire-kickers. Even with the...

    Basically, yeah! If you put the Euro 3.550 final drive in place of the everywhere else 4.055 f.d. and stuck with our top gearset it's about a 12.5% gearing change. (wait a minute... does a 12%...

    The minor occasional rubbing I've heard only happens on the sides of the wheel arch liner - near the 3 & 9 o'clock positions when the front wheels are turned.

    Yeah, my dad had the Camry for 5 years, and I probably could have sold it for close to what he paid for it ($6k) if I'd fixed the fuel leak and got it inspected... instead of being lazy.

    So I did a quick 'n' dirty test last week to compare MPG at the stock tire size vs. 12% larger (circumference) tires at the same, steady speed.

    I saw a "20th anniversary" commercial for Mitsubishi Canada the other day, and they didn't even SHOW the Mirage in the ad. Just their 3 SUVs / crossovers.

    I took a bit less than I think I could have got, but the buyer came across as uncharacteristically decent compared to some of the others who have replied / low-balled. Happy to...

    PS: I think you're right. I'd bet on 2024 being the last model year for the Mirage.

    How long did they milk the Lancer platform here? I think it was 10 or 12 years.
