    - mostly repaired damage to rear bumper - showed up on Carfax report

    However I think I am going to have a lot of fun with this little car.
    Well done, sounds like a bargain.

    Sorry guys I missed all these posts. Been sort of busy today. Hunted around for a new cabin air filter because mine was pretty grungy. First crappy tire, and no filters for my little Mirage. Then called an auto parts store - zip. I called another parts store and the guy was able to order one from Sudbury, and it'll be here tomorrow morning. So a bit of a hunt but I got it! The car should smell much nicer once that's in there.

    I knew there was something about this car that just screamed, "COOL!". Lol that is neat though, I'll tell that to my friend who's gonna make fun of it (he just got a big ol 2018 GMC truck with all the bells and whistles). I honestly think it's just real cute. I just washed the outside so it is looking just gorgeous now.

    Thanks! I don't mind the looks, but I think I may eventually try replacing the front bumper as a long term project.

    Thank you! I like the low price too, because I don't mind tinkering with it a bit. In the absolute worst case scenario I seriously mess something essential up and I'd have to scrap the car. It would suck, but it wouldn't financially cripple me, you know? I might go out and pop the hood with the manual open to find out what's what in there.

    Also, thanks for your input on the A/C! I haven't used it yet because it's been so cool, but I know it will be good when the heat and humidity come.

    I'm late to this thread, but I bought my 2014 ES CVT new in the summer of 2014 for $11,900, plus TTT and dealer fee, with an OTD price of $13,300. The MSRP was $16,265, so it felt like a great deal to me on a brand new, top spec car. I'm hoping I can find another deal similar to that in 2022 with comparable features. I'd be willing to pay a little more perhaps to step up to the top trim. I like the nicer wheels, plaid upholstery, and LED headlights. My night vision isn't the best.

    Hi everyone,

    New to the forum but have been doing research here the past couple of months.

    Bought a 2018 ES Plus? MT with 29k km for about 10k Canadian (with brand new all seasons and slightly used winters) a couple of weeks ago. Car is in practically mint condition given how little it has been driven. I say ES Plus? because the vehicle itself was listed as an ES, and after going through a vin decoder, there doesn't seem to be any indicator of the "plus" aspect. The reason why I believe it's the plus is that it has the carplay/android auto display along with ac and full power mirrors/windows all around. Climate controls are manual, not auto/digital.

    Anyways, although used, the price seemed great given that new MT base models end up around 16-17k Cad with less options than this has.

    Overall super happy with the car so far. The saying of it's funner to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow definitely rings loudly hear, coming from a 92 evo 1 :P

    Hi all,
    New to the forum here! I just found out this forum and would like to share that I bought my brand new, had been sitting in the dealers lot for almost a year kind of Mirage - 2020 CVT Mirage ES hatchback in late Jun 2021 for 13k US$ OTD, paid cash and just walk out straight with the car. So far I enjoyed the car and clocked ~6500 miles by now. The only complain about the car so far is a very snail like accuracy for highway driving.
    Just wondering if anyone here can confirm if I can use the stock 14" steel wheel with wider 175/65R 14" tire?
    Thank you

    Welcome to the forum! Compared to current prices, $13,000 OTD looks really good these days.

    175/65r14 tires will fit perfectly fine on 14" x 4.5" steel rims.

    145-175 mm wide tires are recommended for 4.5" wide rims.

    175/65r14 (23") is the most logical alternative to 165/65r14 (22.4" diameter) factory size tires. Some members feel the speedometer may be more accurate with the slightly larger tires, too.
