    I figured I'd add a garage entry for a high mileage Mirage that I have been maintaining since 2014. I didn't start keeping a copy of the service records until the car had 89,000km/55,000 miles but there wasn't much going on other than tire changes/rotations, wipers, air filters, and oil changes.
    I'm not including tire changes because I never kept track of what tires came off which car. I don't have time or space to keep track and store matched sets for every single car. Maybe I'll get there one day.

    I'll try to post the info that I have about what I've done to this thing over the years to keep it going. I did a compression test on this car today. I'll try to put together a video of it when I get time.

    Most informative service scheduling posted on here. Definitely more informative than just following the service manual. Still though, it's original CVT7 died at 189k mostly highway miles I'm assuming? I'm more impressed with ones in your fleet over 300k km and still on their original CVT7. 189k miles though meant that 2015 Mirage did better than in longevity than probably 80% of Versas or Sparks, or Fiestas.

    Very cool list my dude. Usually when some basement decides they're going to live action role-play by lying that they own a shop and are always seeing Mirages with failed CVTs before 100k miles. I called bs and posted your data. I could tell by his reaction he didn't even own a shop, work professionally on cars, or knew a damn thing.

    This one didn't even have the first cvt fluid change until 135k... methinks dude you mention is on the bad stuff...
