Yeah, mine is really loud. One of my sons, he just seems less technically in touch than the other 2. Yet, he studies his butt off and gets really good grades in engineering classes. However, I let him use the Mirage not long ago and I went back and checked the dash cam. He rode down the road with the windows down and the A/C on. I could hear the A/C compressor on the dash cam because it is so loud. Using the A/C with the windows down is ILLOGICAL and WASTEFUL. He didn't know he had the A/C on.
He also, got frustrated from missing a turn at one point and was somewhat abusive to the car due to his frustration. I didn't call him on it because I didn't want him to know I was spying on him. However, I'm now hesitant to let him use my Mirage again.
