    Here is my shifter. 2015 ES plus and Canadian. I don't use b mode much. It does slow me down nicely on our big downhill in town, but I just use the brakes instead to reduce the wear and tear on the...

    The LED headlights are seriously bright, at least most of them. I appreciate the difference in how far ahead one can see, which is great. But I do think for oncoming traffic they are too bright. One...

    Thanks for the info. I read more on How Stuff Works. "A small pipe called a venturi runs alongside the gas nozzle. When the end of the venturi pipe becomes submerged in the rising gas, it chokes off...

    Very interesting thanks! It's certainly quite a margin of safety. At 5L/100km that's just under 200km of driving!! Lol I definitely won't stress about the flashy thing now. I'll fill up when it does,...
  5. Gas reserve? Is it real, and if so how big is it?

    I refueled my car tonight. The gas indicator was doing the blinky warning thing, so I knew I should probably fill up. However when I filled all the way to the "thunk" sound the gas nozzle makes I...

    Sorry Fummins I completely forgot, as expected.

    I did some washing and waxing today. I found some old car wax bottles in the garage and thought why not? Check out the difference! Not new looking...

    I can ask tomorrow if I remember, but no guarantees there.

    Mark I like supporting them too very much. The knowledge gap between customers and mechanics is huge, so it is very easy as a mechanic...

    Interesting. I did not buy the drums unfortunately, but the mechanic we've got tends to do things for cheap. My front brakes combined with an undercoating were $400 total. I think I got pads and...

    I can see why! I've gotten so used to consoles in other cars that the lack of one in this has actually thrown me a bit. Also not having the pocket on the back of the passenger seat is strange too....

    Worn winter tires in front or rear?

    So my car came with a set of winter tires. Two are in very good shape, while two seem to be worn more. I'd say they have another winter or two of driving left in them. I'm curious about where the...

    Ah thank you I appreciate it. The side panel sizes won't change which is good because I've already cut them, but the length could shorten quite a bit.



    That is simpler and more practical than...

    Singer sounds like a sewing machine, hence the name. But how about Singer who also sings?? I pulled out my dad's old CD collection from the garage and have been rocking out recently. Right now the...

    Singer now has a block heater. Thanks for the installation guide!! This video isn't great but it's more for me to look back on than anything.

    Just discovered this thread. I didn't even realize this was a feature, I thought it was just another quirk. I kind of like the little 'jerk' motion upon startup. Might not be cool or sporty but...

    Overall I like the look of the Mirage way more than the Geo Metro...but wow those are some flashy rims on the Metro!!

    7milesout coming in with the tip of the day!

    I say to reduce the risk by 100%, simply remove the battery from the car. No chance of shock now!

    Whoops. Thanks for the tip Fummins.

    Singer got a new battery today. Minus the deposit it was $120 taxes included. The exciting part was installing it. It's a simple procedure but for someone who has never really worked on a car it was...

    The recalls are definitely another avenue to explore. For now I'm just gonna drive the thing I think. In a way it's nice to have some closure. I will post updates when I do decide to explore that...

    I don't think I'm going to buy another car. If this thing is still good to drive, especially for 100,000km or more then I think I will stick with it.

    All in all I have spent $5034 on this car....

    Okaaaay. Things are settled. I am disappointed, but I will get over it. I will write about it as a learning experience for other potential Mirage (or any used car) purchasers.

    So this was my...

    Good to hear, thank you for all your help and information. I am not giving up on Singer just yet. Not after I have spent 20 dollars on a paint pen and over an hour touching up the paint. Lol.

    Okay you've got me excited now. Get ready for the update tomorrow.

    It is definitely worth a try. Did you buy your 2014 used? If so that gives me hope. Either way I'll throw an update online tomorrow. I'm excited to make some progress on this.
