    For a used one online from a junkyard. Go look on car-part.com. They fit 15-17 for sure 18 might work too? I think 14 is different? Found a few in Texas for $150usd. Cheap like borscht.

    The cvt's aren't very light, I'd say they weigh about the same as the engine. They're relatively simple inside as far as the cvt part works it's just like a skidoo or quad.

    again: cars.com transmission numbers

    Out of curiosity, doing another search of transmission type availability...

    Last time...

    On Cars.com in the U.S., there are 547 used 2014+ Mirages for sale right now...

    87 are listed as manual transmission.

    So, that's 16%.
    Hatchback: today there are 1741 used 2014+ Mirages for sale right now with transmission type indicated...


    • 177 are listed as manual transmission
    • 1564 CVT


    So, that's 10% manual for the hatchback.

    G4 sedan: there are 1741 used 2014+ Mirages for sale right now with transmission type indicated...


    • 156 are listed as manual transmission
    • 1366 CVT


    So, that's 10% manual for the sedan as well.

    That's depressing.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    On the bright side, it's still heads & shoulders above the U.S. fleet average for manual transmission take rate.

    Dropping the manual transmission on the Mirage SE models in 2018 probably doesn't help present/future manual sales numbers either. Even though I have a 2017 Mirage ES (manual), I can see why many are attracted to the SE trim level. The addition of cruise, alloy wheels, and more adjustable front seats are a bit of a draw to that trim level. Cruise and alloy wheels can always be added to a base model, but a highly discounted SE model is a nice package.

    Good point. I wonder why they did that.

    I just checked the Canadian specs, and the only way you can get factory cruise or alloys is to go with the GT!

    Everything else is just a version of the base (ES here) trim.
