    Oooh - and it's a top spec Mirage.

    Wonder why they're selling "as-is"? It has no plates on it. Could be a curb-sider who got it for peanuts at auction and is looking to flip it? Sell it with a valid inspection and the price goes way up.
    I hope its not because the cvt is going out. Fummins has a 2015 with almost 200k miles on it, original CVT!

    I thought about that as well. Maybe it will throw a code if driven on the highway for a few minutes. With no plate it won't be driven on the highway. Still, if the price is right......

    Unfortunately you can't smell burnt cvt fluid easily. If it's black and/or want to stall when coming to a stop look forward to replacing the cvt. I still have one on the bench I gotta order a new input shaft and see if it'll work again.

    For $12-1400 I'd buy it in a minute, I'm sure there's enough reasonably price CVTs in local junkyards to get it back on the road and ready for another couple hundred thousand KMs. I suspect if this Mirage gets down below $2k somebody will snap it up even if the CVT is questionable. Haha. It might be me after all.

    Here is the Monroney sticker for it when it was new. Looks like it was delivered with the optional cargo package and wheel locks.

    When I look at my Mirage (my '14) not only do I see the great little daily driver that it is, I also see it with no interior, a full cage, down to around 13-1500lbs, up around 200+ hp and racing in a really popular league because others have seen the same thing when looking at their Mirages.

    I also see a highly customized car with an audio system easily hitting 130db + . Or a mini camper with the rear seat gone and a pop out tent attached to the back. I think the surface has only been scratched so far with our little wundercars.

    I'm becoming a bit concerned. Can a person become a Mirage addict?

    It's nice to hear others loving their Mirages!!!!

    No brakes though? That's weird - vengeful owner cut the lines when he found it out was getting repo'd??
