    Mine has heated mirrors and heated seats! Wanna trade? You'll have to cover shipping though.

    I have heated seats, two settings, well three, low, high and off but strangely no heated mirrors. Puzzling.

    I have heated seats too, when my bum warms them up.

    If you need heated seats make sure not to burn your dress on them lmao

    I haven't yet. It always gets caught in the door though. One of the bonuses of having a cvt, I get to use either washroom and don't bothered.

    The difference between the CVT and 5mt @65mph is astronomical. What was Mitsu thinking? All 5mt drivers would always be driving around with 4 250lb. adults and luggage?

    I love my 2017 Mirage SE. I am very happy my car and will definately buy another when it comes time. I have only two pet peeves.

    My first pet peeve is the way the back seat folds down. The longer fold down section is on the left side behind the drivers seat and the smaller section is on the right. I would prefer to have the long fold down section on the right side. When folded down, I could then fold the back of the front passenger seat down and better utilize the space between the passenger door on the right and the drivers seat on the left. For you folks with the right hand drive Mirage, this isn't a problem since the larger section is on your passenger side.

    My second pet peeve is the thin sheet metal used in the outer shell of the body. It dents so easily. I would rather have a little more weight and a little less gas mileage for thicker steel panels. Someone had leaned against the rear piller that connects the roof to the rear quarter panel, and actually left a small shallow dent. Then there are the dents from careless people in parking lots, opening their car doors too wide and putting dents in my Mirage panels. Unfortunately, my front right fender now has a sizable dent because of this. I find myself parking my car far away from other vehicles in the parking lot now. Sure it's a long walk from the car, but I dismiss it as needed exercise.

    I park by pillars and trees in the parking lot for this reason alone. I don't mind walking further to avoid getting dents in my car door. That applies to any care I'm driving, not just the Mirage. Some people do it on accident, while others are careless. Also helps to park by nicer high-end cars that you know the owner wouldn't want to chip their door paint being reckless.

    I'll be coming up on 3 years of ownership this summer and, somewhat amazingly, my complaints are just starting now:

    - I hit the 2 year mark and the glovebox and trim under the climate control now buzz
    - About a month ago, I started getting an annoying whistling noise above 35 mph from the driver's side front window.
    - I echo everyone's sentiments about the proprietary TPMS. Mine is on AGAIN despite the tires being at 40 PSI.
    - My auto up/down on for the driver's window seems to be temperamental. It didn't work this morning, but works this afternoon.
    - Last, and most definitely not least, the driver's seat comfort is bad. Like, one of the worst I've ever owned of the 22 cars I've owned since 1996. I'm probably going to buy some sort of seat pad for it. It's my butt and thighs that really get sore after not much time.

    I really like a lot about this car, but these are my annoyances.

    ^ 6-way adjustable seat, or 4-way?

    I find the 6-way makes a big difference.

    I've added thigh support to the cushions of my last couple of econoboxes. But my Mirage (6-way) seems OK.
