    I'm glad you're OK, too bad about your ride. Still, there's now an engine and CVT going to a boneyard.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    Sorry to hear about your accident. I'm glad your Mirage protected you!

    How did you find a Mirage for that price in 2015?

    Sheer luck. and it was only at 42,000km when I bought it, and it was in perfect condition.

    Thanks.
    With the insurance payout I was able to make a sizable down payment on a brand new 2023 Mirage.

    That's a darn shame. The red paint still looked might delicious. I'd read about your new car. Hope it is a good as your '15. And glad to hear you weren't injured.

    Sorry to see this.
    Good luck with your brand spanking new Mirage.
