I agree with everyone about getting used to the car. I have been driving mine almost a month now, and I went from a Mazda 3 Hatch. Getting used to the handling, the tilting (we call it "marshmallowing" when I take a sharp turn) and the...how shall I say, lack of easy power? What I mean by that is, the Mazda (6-speed) practically drives itself, with TB I have had to get used to 'driving' again, and adjusting to using the gears and thinking strategically. But after a few weeks I have the hang of it and it's fun! I have noticed the AC surging, and have figured out how to adjust it, like cyclopathic suggested. My basic opinion on all things Mirage is that Mitsubishi made an awesome economical car and knows it. They excluded anything fancy or luxury as "unnecessary" and only kept things that were truly functional and added to the efficiency of the car. I love pulling down the visor and feeling it's cheap squishy plastic, while only filling the tank once in the last month!!
