    But it may get some extra TLC if I change it @ 70,000 miles now (4,700 miles instead of 5,000).

    I like 5,000 mile oil/filter changes (give or take a few hundred miles), because it's easy to...

    $3.99/ gallon was in Minnewaukan, North Dakota. They have a single credit card pump across the highway from the high school. That's the only gas pump for miles around. There are no buildings...

    Maybe the gas pump is rigged in their favor? You pay for 10.195 gallons of gas when you are only getting 9 gallons or something? I joke, but I don't believe they are exact measurements either. ...

    Unlike engine oil, coolant is easier to test yourself. If I bought a used Mirage, I would make sure it had the proper coolant. Then I would follow the 90,000 mile or 6-years recommendation after...

    The world would be a better place if everyone used the metric system.

    Since 4 liters = 1.05669 gallons, it's really not that hard to compare gas prices. $2/liter gas for them would be...

    Schedule 1 & 2 are the same for the engine coolant -

    Factory coolant should be changed at 120,000 miles (192,000 km) or 96 months (8 years).

    Thereafter every 90,000 miles (144,000 km) or ...

    In the States, the 10-year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty does not transfer to the 2nd owner of a Mirage. The 5-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty does transfer, however.

    What are the odds of a little old lady from Arizona or New Mexico (that drives to church & the grocery store once a week) owning a 2017+ Mirage ES manual? Just thinking ahead! :)
