    Clearly you do not subscribe to any of the major US car review magazines. :D

    Traded a Beemer, eh? I feel like we need to know more about your automotive decision-making.

    Glad to have you here...

    That bites.

    Glad there were no injuries. What the heck was the driver behind you doing?? Did they say anything?

    2014 CVT asking $2900

    No pics...

    100k kms = 62k miles with a cracked windshield in Toronto.

    Sounds like you dodged a couple of bullets! Old Audis are unreliable money pits. Altima... with a CVT?

    Ha - I went looking for the DRL fuse (my manual says it's in in the same under hood fuse box)... and there ain't one there. I wonder if the heater fuse/relays are actually there.

    Pretty close, yeah.

    The green temp light goes out when coolant temp hits 137 degrees F.

    The resistance heater may be on until it hits 167 F.

    It'd be nice if it had an over-ride switch.
  9. Remember: the Mirage has an electric resistance heater (that draws a lot of current)

    Another reason to get a block heater / use your cabin heater judiciously (before the coolant warms up):

    ^ It's an outright amazing deal when you consider the new cost.

    When new, mine was $15,898 + $1450 mandatory freight charge = $17,348.

    Yours was that plus $1200 more for the CVT.

    And that...

    Yeah, maybe not obviously via a dedicated health tax (like Ontario's "health premium"), but we all pay as a portion of federal income taxes.

    more expensive than a Miata!

    I don't cover my cars for collision or loss either - just 3rd party liability.

    The Mirage is 37% more expensive than the 1990 Miata - $605 for the year vs $441. The Metro/Firefly is $496.

    Funny thing: I have the impression the Echo was a quality-built machine. The used ones I've driven (~10-12 years old with 120k+ miles / 200+ kms) have been tight and rattle-free.
