That is the best answer! Haha! Yes, the manual is the only way to buy a car of this nature. I am looking into getting a 5 speed mirage within the next 4-6 months. I really like small cars, and this warranty is great. I hope it's a motor that can hang in there for 200-250,000 miles.
Fummins runs a fleet of 20+ Mirages with a few closer to 200k with nothing major to report but a CVT failure on the high mileage one. It will last you 200k+ miles.
