    Questions of noise & comfort are relative & hugely subjective.

    Yes, you can measure decibels. But if you're coming off a summer spent driving around a 30 year-old Miata, trust me, switching to a...

    Interesting... they've dropped the Dunlop Enasaves for Falkens?

    Same size? 165 / 65 R14?

    Welcome!

    What major mods did you do to your Civic? Was it the same goal as the Mirage: fuel efficient + ??

    Wow. Yep, very similar looking damage!

    The VW Tiguan that hit my sister's car didn't get off as lightly as your truck. She was also able to drive hers away, but my brother in-law said it was...

    What kind of tire test? Longevity?

    There were a LOT of hybrid Camry taxis in Toronto at one point. For some reason (pricing?), in Canada the Camry hybrid outsold the Prius. I know of 4 people...

    Yep. I measured & compared it to Mirage #2 before I sold it and it's got excessive rear negative camber.

    Even if the car didn't have premature rear tire wear (inside of tread), you could...

    My sister agrees.

    Good news: they'll probably get more for the car from insurance than they could get if they sold/traded.

    Bad news: used/new cars cost more right now, and selection isn't as...

    RIP my sister's Camry Hybrid

    22444

    My sister bought it new in 2007. I once got 70+ MPG on a round trip driving in ideal suburban conditions.

    2 nights ago, a young woman rang the doorbell at 1:30 in the morning and said,...
  11. Still fun

    I've now driven the car half a dozen times since changing the oil, and the improvement is fantastic. Still a pleasure to shift ... well, as much as a Mirage can be.

    Cold drivetrain shifting is...

    deals are still out there!

    22443

    $1888 for a top spec 2014 5-speed with 197k km = 122k miles.



    This is about 2.5 hours from me. I'd be going to look if I was in the market.

    Smaller one = i3. Only some of them come with a generator/engine. I'd happily take one of those too.



    Mirage in my driveway, and I know I've made it!

    Welcome killerrudy!

    Congrats on the shady dealer purchase. Been there, done that.

    The Mirage looks good on Mini wheels... another member has done it.

    It's only got something like 17 miles/22 km of e-range before the three-banger turbo kicks in... but I'd happily take one!

  20. Scientific survey: Mirage owners don't care

    I did a road trip to Florida last week to deliver an older snowbird friend to her winter nest.


    Saw about a dozen Mirages.

    5 of them were trashed. Like this one:

    That only shows...
  21. AWOL again?

    So, did I miss something? I notice our favourite wise-cracking Mirage expert hasn't been around lately.

    The latest avatar/profile pic looks like a clue too.

    I haven't been on the forum as much...

    Prediction: time spent with the Mirage will cause you to build up a sense of security so you'll go back to buying used Minis... for a while. :p
  23. Fun

    Just to underline how much the gear oil change has improved shifting, I took it for a drive today... JUST FOR FUN!

    I hardly ever do that.

    I love driving stick. But it definitely wasn't...
