    Every day it gets warmer out I grow a little more concerned I'll be replacing a cvt sooner than later. But the fluid is still clean so there's that. Just need it to hang in there another month or two!
    How much time you think you have before it fails?

    There was a poster on reddit showing an estimate receipt to replace his clutch on his Outlander Sport. The shop he went to quoted him almost 3 grand because there is no aftermarket clutch kit for even their most popular vehicle, unbelievable. I imagine the OEM clutch kit on a Mirage will be even more expensive.

    That is simply not true. I can get a clutch kit from -

    My local Auto Zone store for $221.99 (limited lifetime warranty).

    Ebay for $129.95 with free shipping.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Clutch-...4AAOSw6NVePHAv

    Amazon for $103.97 with free delivery & free returns.

    https://www.amazon.com/Clutch-Mitsub.../dp/B07BB122PJ

    To say there are no aftermarket part for a Mirage is simply not true. You may not find as many choices as a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic, but aftermarket parts for the Mirage exist for many things including clutch kits.

    The same clutch kit for a 2017 Honda Fit is $219.99 @ Auto Zone. Seems to be about the same price to me.

    This. I haven't had any issues finding aftermarket for my car.

    Well, work isn't able to source aftermarket drums for the 2015 cars. One out of town car that I never work on apparently needed drums, I probably have a set or two left in the bone yard but they're probably grooved. $350/piece from the dealer. Shoulda ordered a set from rock auto.
    It'd probably be cheaper to buy a used complete trailing axle with brakes from a 2017 car then buy new more readily available and cheaper raybestos drums and shoes.

    But for a novice like myself will a shop install those? I'm just curious really. Did you see his itemized estimate? I'm guessing that shop would only warranty OEM parts?

    My mechanic has installed parts I bring in. That said, I have an established & good relationship, and I don't do it often.

    I wonder if they prefer you order through them because of extra markup on the part prices?

    It's usually more convenient to have a shop order parts. I wouldn't hesitate to walk into a shop with a handful of parts and ask them to install them.

    I always often install parts for people who bring their own parts, though it's pretty annoying when you are halfway through a job and discover they supplied the wrong parts.
