    White Bear Mitsubishi has 2019 manual trans Mirages listed for $9999 right now. All we need is a $3500 rebate on top of that and I'll buy one over the phone.

    Dirk... Talk to the service manager but keep this in mind...

    The dealer needs a pre-approval from Mitsubishi to do an expensive warranty repair like this. The dealer can't do a $1400 warranty...

    If you're going to test for a restricted heater core, you need to establish some consistent test conditions.

    The heater core is not covered by the powertrain warranty...but it is covered by the 5 year 60,000 mile warranty.

    You can read my heater core story here. This was at Walker Mitsubishi.

    Yeah... My 2015 has a mild case of that. I'll see how bad it is this winter when we get some really cold temps!

    I have used that Discount Tire location and have had really good luck there. They also have a Bartec tool that can perform a TPMS relearn on a Mirage. Not all shops can do that.
