    The Spark & Mirage use the same CVT, sourced from JATCO. But probably with different programming, as Fummins says. Nissan used it in the Versa &...

    Zero regrets here too!

    A lot of people are probably doing the "Most expensive fill up yet" routine lately. I filled my folks' Camry for them the other day and cracked $70 for the first time.

    Welcome to the forum, Crossbolt!

    What on Earth prompted you to buy a Mitsubishi Mirage?? :D

    Went to start it up again after moving it out of "summer storage", and it needed another boost.

    I started Mirage #3 for the first time in 2 and a half months yesterday.

    I was just shuffling cars around - not planning to put it back on the road just yet. (I usually drive the...

    OK, I finally watched the video.

    0-60 MPH, at high elevation, with 4 adults in the car, and a CVT.

    Almost 20 seconds.

    Anybody surprised? :D

    Aside from that, I think he (Nathan) defends...

    So they also made a video with the Mirage rental:

    I haven't watched it yet, but apparently it may not be as glowing as the...

    Cool!! Those are very fun, capable cars. 100 hp 1.3L 4-cyl twin cam & ~1700 lbs. I had a chance to drive one at a track day.

    Being from lesser known Suzuki, it's only worth a fraction of the...

    My next car after the Mirage will probably be another $2000 Mirage. :D

    New vehicles aren't in my financial plan... and I don't see that as a bad thing.

    That said, I think Ford knocked it out...

    I won't lie: the transmission did make a few unexpected lurches. They were small, probably nothing the average driver would notice.

    Ha. I could stick a Chevy logo on my Mitsu wheelcovers.

    I thought the video was going to be a Spark EV. Apparently they are insanely torquey for a little car.

    Yeah, they changed the way their photo URLs work. Now you have to figure out how to do a screen capture, save & upload that. Seems like a lot of work.
