    The fact that your Mirage only depreciated $200 after almost 4 years of ownership is pretty amazing. I realize you invested in some aftermarket items, too.

    Yeah, I was only be a smart-a-- or dumb-a-- (depending on your point of view) about the manual stop & go feature. If I am sitting in line for a train, drive up (bank, fast food etc...), or whatever,...

    I have nearly 49,000 miles on 2017 ES manual, & I haven't had any brake work done.

    My 2000 Honda CR-V still had its original factory brakes in 2013 @ 154,000 miles. I got second opinions from my...

    kilo means 1000
    1 km = 1000 meters

    Since we do miles/gallon, they could at least do kilometer/liter for us? :)

    I can visualize km/liter better than liters/100km.

    I want one of those!

    This is probably why Americans never went totally metric. Those darn decimal points!

    Actually, I wish we were metric. That should have happened 50 years ago.

    You need to take advantage of your manual stop & go feature on your Mirage while waiting for a train to pass! I prefer it over auto stop & go! :)

    I've only heard forum members complain about the lack of telescoping steering. The only time I use the tilt is to drop the steering wheel to dust the steering column. It's not much of an adjustment....

    Doesn't the tilt adjustment change the height of the steering wheel? The steering moves in a small arc.

    The other feature would be telescoping steering, & I don't think any Mirages have it.

    The 145SR12 tires on my 1990 Ford Festiva never lasted very long. Then again, I don't remember ever finding a 12" tire from a major tire company, and tires were cheaper back then. $25-40 got you a...

    If 85 mph will be your norm, I may consider something else.

    Econo dash light goes off as you approach 80 mph on 5-speed manual Mirage. Cars still hums along fine, however.
