    Glad to hear that happened at 1:30 AM, and not PM. Seems like it's not safe to play outside on your lawn these days!

    So many screen distractions. People need to start wearing a watch haha! Detox...

    Can't beat the hatchback design or deep trunk. My only problem with my Mirage lately has been my driver's door lock. I sprayed Jig-A-Loo graphite lubricant into the lock second time today, and now...

    I think there is backup engine in those new BMW hatchbacks. You know the ones with the really weird design. Small car rivalling my Mirage.

    I'm not up on my luxury exotic hatchbacks. I say go big...

    They review the manual Mirage for once, as well as the automatic. So it's a more accurate review for once. Makes sense to test a product with all the possible layouts. Anyway this is one of the...

    Welcome aboard George. Nice looking 2022, you are one of the first on the Forum to have the new design.

    Really eh, that's interesting. I hear ya. My 1st gear in my Mirage does not have that problem. Ever had any Volvos? There's a 2005 manual Volvo for sale near me with a 5 cylinder turbo, low kms.

    Reverse is hard to get into in my Mirage. In a different way than it was in my Rabbit. I do the 2nd gear to R trick, that solves the problem. But I shouldn't have to. Nothing is perfect.

    My Rabbit was a nice car, I paid very little for the car. I don't have it now. The tires are 13" and the hubcaps were similar to the half-chrome VW hubcap, half steelie tire going on. One fell off as...

    Spare tire is going the way of the way of the dinosaur. So a Continental kit on a Mirage with a real spare tire would be a statement.

    Not gonna do it, let's inspire others for their idea boards....

    Well too bad you weren't closer to me. I wouldn't mind adding some chrome bling to my older base Mirage. Snazz it up a bit @159,900 kms.

    Foglight chrome accents on a car with no foglights lol and...

    I pretty much only play Forza Motorsport 5, and before that, it was Gran Turismo 5 & 6 on my old PS3. I actually "own" a Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg on Gran Turismo. On Forza I have an Eagle Talon, and...

    Hey Yeti I agree, Mirage is a good commuter car. Whatever costs less gas to get to and from work. Costs me about $40 to fill up now, for 7 years before much less.

    Insurance rates are low too....

    Mirages are light cars. Lots of wind today and I could really feel it on the way home. Weather only got worse later. That is one knock on all small cars. However I think driving vans can be worse for...

    No problemo. I'm not trying to pitch Mirages but something to think about is, getting a newer or new Mirage for yourself if repair costs skyrocket.

    My old Ford Escort got to that point, and I...

    How are your RPMs?

    Just throwing it out there. I used to own a 1986 VW Rabbit cabrio, and the overdrive gear was broken, so my car overheated in hot weather. Once I got a new (used) transmission...

    This might be a stupid question, but a block heater... just makes it easier to start your Mirage in the middle of the winter?

    Never had one before. Anyways not related to this thread, however I...

    No but anecdotally, driving my Mirage going on 8 years now, and owning no other car, I got a pretty good idea.
