    Not really saying anything new here, but I would just take the wheel off, lay it on the ground with some wood underneath it, & wail on it with a small sledgehammer. I may buffer the blow some with...

    I'm becoming a bit concerned. Can a person become a Mirage addict? :)

    It's nice to hear others loving their Mirages!!!!

    Sadly, many car critics test drive the loaded version of vehicles, & they fail to point out that these cars can be had for $11,500 OTD.

    Your story is one I can relate to very much, even though I...

    Just something to think about - Scotty Kilmer is in his mid-60's. During his lifetime, he has spent less than $7,500 on all of his vehicles combined. His present car is a 1994 Toyota Celica that...

    Sounds like a lot of speculation to me. In the States, I've noticed the new model Mirages seem to arrive a little later each year. I test drove 2018 Mirage in October of 2017. My new 2017...

    I paid $50 each with free shipping for brand new steel rims, but that was 2 years ago.

    I only use dealers for recalls or warranty work.

    All sorts of claims are made with synthetic oil, but I would stay with the maintenance schedule even beyond the warranty period.

    Your Mirage has had a good life on 5W-30 conventional. ...

    Sometimes, I just write things for anyone to read. I found it sort of hard to see in there. It took me a bit to figure out how to open the thing the first time.

    7,000 mile oil changes with synthetic oil should be fine, especially how you rack up miles quickly. Hope they are giving you a quality oil filter to go with the slightly longer intervals.

    In the last week or so, I noticed my windows were fogging up more than usual.

    I was planning to change my filters when I reach 30,000 miles in a couple weeks. Sort of prep my car for winter. ...

    Like always - thanks for your detailed pics and description of everything. Painted bolts are a nice touch, too!

    At what mileage did you decide to change your manual transmission fluid?

    That's why I sort of like the 8 bars represent 8 gallons approximately. It is a small gas tank. Low on a Mirage may mean a gallon of gas left. For a larger vehicle, low may be a few gallons left. ...

    I find this to be quite the opposite. When a solid bar disappears, I know that I have used about 1 gallon gas. When the final 8th bar disappears, I am down to about 1 gallon of gas. I never knew...

    My last cycle (Kawasaki Versys) had a gas gauge that was very similar to the Mirage. It was pretty accurate, too. Odometers were definitely used on older bikes, & the reserve tank on a cycle was a...

    Any car I've own in the last 20-25 years with old fashioned gas gauge, had a low fuel warning dash light come on. I really don't see how that is much different?

    I guess a FOB can mean different things for cars. Thus, I may not be using the term correctly myself?

    My 2017 Mirage ES has orange dash lights. It may be a lower trim level (ES, RF, LE, SE, GT) thing?

    I'm glad you're still a Mirage guy, too! :)

    I don't think FOBs & chipped keys co-exist for any vehicle. FOBs are a part of push button starts. Chipped keys have to be stuck in the ignition & turned to start the car.
