Hi , I always check this site out to learn more about the Mirage etc...but I just wanted to post that I have owned my Mirage 1 yr today and I have been very happy with it. It has 18k highway miles and I have had no issues. My lifetime average mpg is 49.6 mpg since my first fillup.I regularly average 52-54mpg from april-December and then 45-48 during the winter months. I drive 500 miles weekly all highway. I have no complaints and hope the car lasts me 10 years until I retire from my job and don't have to commute any more. The CVT has been great . thanks.
