    Best place to be is here. Congrats on the 23. Wish I could afford one. Maybe if I sold my 14, my 17, my Saturn and my bike. Lol.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way

    Welcome aboard, this is a great and smart group of members, except for me. I have a tip for an accessory: I think a Glock Model 23 makes a great accessory to any Mirage. It fits GREAT inside the glove box!

    Welcome. I too just got a 23 Mirage to replace my 15 that was rear ended.
    They are great cars.

    Follow the break-in "rules" go above and beyond the maintenance schedule a little bit, and drive it responsibly and these cars will last you a long time. I never had a breakdown in my 2015. Never replaced a single part out of pocket that wasn't the usual wear and tear.

    Welcome to MirageForum!

    There are a couple guys on here who have Youtube channels with good how-tos and info about quirks of the car. The most popular topic I've noticed regarding maintenance would be the CVT fluid and the two filters. You have a long time before you'll have to worry about that. I have a 2017 SE bought in 2019 that was previously used by a rental company. Many cars don't have much life left in them after 30k miles of hard rental driving but it's still going strong as ever at 84k! These are good cars, I hope you enjoy your Mirage!
