    What he said. I've seen the inner's wear a bit faster than the outers on a couple cars. Inner pad clips were full of crap stopping pad from moving freely wearing it out quick.

    Thank you brother. The first I hear a funny noise Ill get em checked out. As of now they feel and sound great, added benefit to have such a light weight car I suppose.

    I had a k car many moons ago. I got our mechanic at the time to "safety" it for me, he just asked if the brakes were good and lights worked. I pulled the wheels, outer pads looked good. Drove it a few weeks-month and checked them again, they felt odd.....Inner pads were totally worn, inside of the rotor was worn down to a single solid now non-vented rotor. Wasn't my brightest moment...Found out early k-cars had two different front brake sizes and mine had the oddball smaller ones

    Rhino Rack square bars. I just leave them on all year round and no rust.

    Hello all,
    . . . . I received the new key yesterday. It fits in the lock so we know that physically these keys will work with the 2019 Mirage's. I have to wait until I get paid before I can have it cut. I haven't installed the decals yet. Probably tomorrow. I now have almost 40K on my G4 and I am averaging 40 mpg and that is with a lot of 75-80 mph travel and the A/C on most of the time. I also drive with my lights on at all times. The fog lamps are great. How do I add comments to the bottom of my page such as a fuel mileage?
    GOD Bless and Thanks,
    rich!

    G4 get even less love than the hatch in the auto press world, undeservedly so IMO. The trunk is a good size, the back passenger space is ample, and rear visibility changing lanes is better than my hatch, to me. No push through though is a bummer but they might correct that in the future.
