    If the United Nations is involved in speedometer/odometer readings, that would be quite silly!

    I don't share you love of governmental mandates, but I respect the fact that you embraced them. I am...

    I calculate my mpg by using the odometer (not the speedometer).

    miles traveled divided by gallons of gas used

    If larger tires make my odometer reading off, my mpg calculations reading...

    I don't blame you for being frustrated. I am also very thankful for all the time & work Top Fuel has put into sharing his knowledge of a Mirage's TPMS.

    I don't mean to throw salt into the...

    A good friend of mine had her 2008 Camry V6 smacked tonight. She was coming into the edge of town (40 mph zone), and a guy driving a full size Chevy pickup truck makes a left turn right into her. ...

    I wouldn't replace a sensor before it dies. I am still waiting for one of my factory sensors to die on my 2011 Subaru Forester, & that hasn't happened yet. If I replaced sensors every time I...

    I suspect a 175/65r14 (23" diameter) tire may be closer to the actual speedometer speed, but I don't know if anyone has actually confirmed that?

    The two factory tire sizes aren't even the same...

    Yeah! It's a base model (does have A/C, power windows, power/remote locks), but no cruise control. Plus, the $1888/$1475 Mirage had remote starter added & comes with two sets of wheels.

    $1888 = $1475 USD

    That car would cost 3 times that much here, & it may not be a fully loaded manual either.

    Here's one approximately the same year/mileage, & it is listed over 5 times the...

    Driving back & forth between two gas stations on the same block doesn't count, however! :)

    I filled up on a flashing single bar yesterday. It had been flashing for a few miles. It took about...

    That was an older thread. There have been several issues with 195 wide tires from other members in the past. I don't remember a 185 wide tire having the same issue for anyone.

    I think...

    Personally, I feel 14" rims gives one more tire options than 15" rims for a Mirage. A 175/55r15 factory size tire is not a common size, but 185/55r15 is quite common in the States, & it has the same...

    Modern day fuel pumps are meant to be submerged in fuel in the gas tank, & I believe gas gauges are designed with that in mind.

    Personally, I like knowing I have some gas left when the last...

    I had a similar experience with my 2011 Forester. It sits at times, because I use my Mirage 90% of the time. Mice ate the wires near the gas tank on my Forester. It not only made the gas gauge...

    That's great news!

    I changed to Redline MTL @ 30,000 miles. Factory oil still looked great, but I like changing out the factory oil sooner rather than later. I plan on changing my manual...

    In my case, I am using 8 wheels (two sets of tires) per vehicle. If I had new sensors programmed to my Mirage for the second set of wheels, my factory sensors would no longer be recognized by my...

    Did they clone the new sensors to the vehicle or reprogram your vehicle to the new sensors? In my mind, there's a huge difference. When I switch a set of tires now, I don't have to do anything to...

    I can confirm that the Autel MX-Sensor 2 in 1 can be easily reprogrammed. I was told by an Autel Representative that the MX-Sensors could be reprogrammed if you drop the tire air pressure.

    I could be wrong, but my guess is none of these cars are in stock yet. WB usually displays actual pics of their cars that are in stock.

    My guess is these cars are on their way to them, but I...

    I highly doubt 2021 is the last year for the Mirage, and the website says 2022 Mirages coming soon! Why say that if there's no intention of that?

    Who knows? The cars may be stuck on ships or...

    Welcome to the forum, & congrats on the Mirage purchase. Compared to prices I have seen lately for used Mirages, I think you got a great deal!

    Did you buy your Mirage from a private party?

    When a car is idling, engine parts are still moving. Driving it slowly will warm up the oil faster than idling it. I see no need to let a car idle to warm up, & I live where it gets -20F or colder...
