    I would look at it this way. A lower mileage 2017 Mirage will have a lot of life in it. If you drive for 5 years, you would probably still get a couple thousand for it. You could probably drive it...

    I still predict Hyundai/KIA will be passing Nissan in the United States in just a few years. Hyundai making a $410 million investment in making a Santa Cruz pickup in Alabama is a good example of...

    I would have your own mechanic look at the car if the seller is open to that. Eliminate the risk. If it is engine mounts, having a quote of what it may be to fix that would be helpful. If it's...

    I driven across Wisconsin (2017 ES with manual climate controls) to my parents (approximately 4 hour trip) in -20F temperatures a couple times with no issues. My Mirage throws more heat than my...

    175/75-14 is a large tire for a Mirage.

    165/65-14 are 22.4" in diameter (factory 14" tire size)

    175/65-14 are 23" in diameter (2.7% variance) - common size being used by many members with many...

    Mine was bad a few weeks ago. Mice built a nest on top of cabin filter. Completely clogged. No issues now & I live in Wisconsin.

    I had hickory nuts stored by engine air filter, too. All good...
  7. Not sure analyzing manual transmission fluid is...

    Not sure analyzing manual transmission fluid is all that important, but I am glad Top Fuel shared his results. Doing it @ 30,000 first & 60,000 miles intervals in the future is my plan. 2 quarts...

    I bought the funnel to add fluid from the top. I had a long neck funnel I use for my tractor & other things, but this hose needed to flex some. Any small hose that fits the opening would work. ...

    NO!

    According to a paper on this issue in the journal Rubber World: “The use of silica can result in a reduction in rolling resistance of 20% and can also improve wet skid performance by as much...

    I have sort of questioned all this myself. I bought a gallon of Redline MTL, & I decided to change my transmission fluid @ 30,000 miles (did this about 2-weeks ago now). I don't always assume...

    In my experience cheap tires will often outperform more expensive tires, especially in snow. Price is not a good indicator of how good a tire is in bad weather.

    It's not uncommon for cheap...

    What conclusions do you reach from these results?

    60,000 miles manual transmission oil changes are about right, or something else?

    I don't think anyone feels Nissan will disappear in the U.S. I do believe its imagine is tarnished. If you continue to produce mediocre/inferior products, it will catch up with you over time. ...

    I would ask them their OTD price before making the drive. Add on charges may be a deal breaker. More of a new car issue, but I would ask for a used car, too.

    You are negotiating before they...

  16. Unless it's covered under warranty or a recall...

    Unless it's covered under warranty or a recall notice, I would never let a dealership work on any of my cars. $1,400 to replace a radiator is a prime example of this.

    Just using one source...
  17. We didn't buy a Mirage for the same reasons...

    We didn't buy a Mirage for the same reasons apparently. I adore the 5-speed manual powertrain of the Mirage. It's a hoot to drive as is. If the Mirage came with a turbo, I would have never...

    Because the new Honda CRV has a 1.5L turbo maybe? My dad's GMC Terrain has a 1.5L turbo. These are not vehicles I would buy, but it's the latest trend.

    If the Outlander Sport (with 2.0L...

    I'm not saying Mirages are thousands less than Sparks. YOU are the one that stated (post #78) Sparks are a couple thousands more than Mirages, & I don't believe that is true at all. I only...

    My brother got $3,000 off his 2018 GMC pickup truck for a GM credit card he cut in half and threw away a year before this purchase. He never used the card once. Yet, they gave him another $3000...

    If the Mirage's powertrain was placed in a Spark, I would gladly drive around in one!

    Small economy cars that are built for the U.S market should come with 175/65-14 or 185/55-15 tires, and...

    I only shop for manuals. When I search the Mirage & Spark side-by-side. Sparks are cheaper. 2020 Sparks are advertised for $10,500 today. I haven't investigated the actual OTD price, but they...

    I see nothing wrong with a 78 hp Mirage. The powertrain of the Mirage is what I like the most. These 3 cylinder cars have grown on me! I've owned three 4-cylinder vehicles that had less...

    The non-turbo engine in an Outlander Sport has about the same horsepower & mpg rating as the Eclipse Cross. I see no added value in the 1.5 turbo, & I highly doubt it will be more reliable in the...

    I like the concept of all this, but including all these items as add on features would be a nightmare! Upgrading a transmission, climate controls, turbo, & suspension isn't the same as adding a...
