    I have a 2017 Mirage ES with 54000 miles. I bought it with 52000. I am recently hearing a varying whistle noise around the 1500 rpm range when continuing from a stop. I don't hear it when at cruising speed. Just when accelerating from stop. Sounds to me while driving it is coming from in engine compartment from passenger side. Anyone experience this??

    I wouldn't assume everyone reads garage entries. You may want to start a thread focusing on your concern. Just a suggestion!

    I've noticed a chirping sound on some cold starts in my Mirage. I'm not sure if it's the same as your symptoms though.

    Somewhere around here I recall some other forum members mentioned that the air intake snorkel can become loose and wiggly. I've concluded that's what is happening in my situation. And it only happens in certain engine speeds.

    It's just something to look at. I kinda doubt it fits your description.

    Sorry for not responding sooner. We were out enjoying some Lenten fish fry cuisine. Can't be on the forum all the time you know.

    Can you take a video and provide a link?

    Have you checked the belt condition & tension?? I know the belt on the kids Honda down the street from me makes a horrible noise when he accelerates past my house, but I suspect he doesn't hear it over the LOUD music & 3" fart can exhaust

    What is the correct way to check the CVT oil level on this Mirage after it is up to proper temp? With the engine idling or with the engine stopped??

    Passenger side is drive wheel so it might be drive train not engine. Is the car vibrating? Might want to check with the experts to reallly diagnose

    Also important to tell the newbie Mirage owner, the Mirage's engine bay whistles loudly and a ton, like it's weird how much whistle-y wind noise you get in your Mirage, particularly when slowing down.

    I experience it more on windy days in my Mirage, but also heard it mentioned by youtube reviewers of the car.

    Can you show me how the passenger side wheel is the drive wheel??? This doesn't sound right. There is a differential in the transmission, & torque is delivered to the wheel that has the least resistance to spin. That is why they gave us the traction control that reduces the engine torque & applies a brake to the spinning wheel if necessary.. Also I haven't heard any whistling noise from my engine compartment on my properly maintained Mirage..
