    No it hasn't done this before. I was thinking the same thing so I went and checked but the light was off. Maybe something else was on?

    It was turning over normally, not the clicking sound, but it...
  2. Briefly wouldn't start - Acted like the battery was weak.

    I've got a 2014 Mirage with 105K miles. With no warning it acted like the battery was weak and wouldn't start. I popped open the hood, checked the cables and tried it again and it started right up. I...

    But Mitsubishi only makes money in that scenario if people will buy their cars knowing that the transmission (car) will only last 110,000 miles. I think that's why Toyota and Honda sell so many cars....

    I'm wondering if it's better to just change the fluid every 30k and not drop the pan and replace the filter. That's what the manufacturer recommends. Wouldn't it be in their best interest to...

    I'm starting to think that could be it. I've got a new set of plugs in the glovebox ready to install and I also was going to clean the injectors like you said. It sure can't hurt.

    Thanks!

    I'm used to the CVT fluctuating a little but this is different. It's like it gets stuck in a loop and it fluctuates from high to low, over and over and won't stop until you adjust the gas pedal a...

    That's sounds like exactly what mine is doing. It's almost like bouncing a ball. If you accelerate just right it makes the bouncing more obvious. I think my description of the problem was a little...

    I'd say 190K is middle of the road for an economy car transmission. But to me it's a little concerning since my choices were between the Yaris and the Mirage. I'm pretty sure Yaris automatic...

    And in this case it's VERY intermittent. I can live with it no problem as long as it doesn't get a lot worse. I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to change the filter and use OEM fluid. I told...

    Took it to the dealer today. He said it worked fine which I expected because I haven't had the problem in a week. He thought it could be from a temperature sensor that somehow shuts down the CVT when...

    I'm taking it to the dealer in a couple days. The problem is that the issue is very intermittent. Plus my warranty is going to end pretty soon.

    How much to replace a CVT?

    I'm hoping I don't need to but if you had to replace a CVT, how much would it cost? I'm assuming the best route would be a used CVT vs rebuilt or new.

    I guess the question is should I drop the pan and replace the filters? That way I'd remove more of the aftermarket fluid?

    I have 87K miles on it. I'm going to replace the plugs also. I really...

    I'm planning on doing that to, but I don't think that's the problem since the engine is not sputtering. Plus it's always done this, just not as badly.

    CVT stutters during acceleration

    I've got a 2014 Mirage with 87K miles. Occasionally during acceleration the car starts stuttering pretty violently. It goes back and forth between accelerating and pausing. Sort of like a manual...

    Try ebay. There's a rebuilt starter for $200 and some used ones for under $50. Normally I like going with new parts but with the Mirage I think you almost have to take a chance on used parts. Maybe...

    I ended up getting my wife a 2005 corolla with 125K miles on it for $4,000. I spent another $1,000 on tires and replacing some stuff like the water pump, etc. The car is in great shape and should go...

    Imagine how many they'll sell when gas prices inevitably rise.

    The problem with most car reviews is that reliability is the least important stat to them.

    I can't get to that shortcut but I did what the OP did. I kept tightening it a little then driving it to see if the belt squeal would stop.
