    But if, as you explained it, it will be more expensive and time consuming to swap than to sell and buy an AT version instead. I will still think about it.

    THanks again Guys
    If you want to keep your car running as long as possible, donít put a CVT in it.

    Yea zerocul, stevedmc is right. Reliablility stick with the stick. There is even a Mirage Forum member with something like 400,000 km's on a 5 speed manual Mirage.

    Yes MT is annoying, but there are also great advantages. I know, I own a 2014 Mirage MT myself. I live in the country, but in Toronto wow it's annoying. I get that no doubt.
