    Ha - great point. I never really considered the low-weight advantage in extreme slippery conditions. Should stop & corner better too.

    Previous owner replied over the weekend. Said he didn't keep any service records.

    40335kms. I last checked sometime last week. Last night I checked it and it was between the marks. It took 1/2 liter of oil. I found an old case of synthetic 5w20 in the garage so just poured that in it. Before I added oil the engine seemed quieter except for a slight belt squeak. By the time I got to work this morning I could hardly hear that knock/tick noise. I'll keep an eye on oil level more closely. Fuel economy seems down still even though it's nowhere near -30 anymore. Haven't been able to get it under 6l/100km on the display yet. I don't think going to the dealer will get me anything but a $120 invoice that says car is normal, if it was screwed I'd be sol anyways without proof of maintenance. Seems fine now, I'll waiting for it to act up again like dirk and his cvt.

    Hey Fummins are you using a grill block?

    Forgive me if this has been covered.

    Nice your previous owner replied at least.

    I contacted mine by email and a hand-written letter (mostly to try to get the 2nd key) and... nada.

    No grille block. I guess that could help get to temp quicker and with mileage a little but not much has changed from 3-4 weeks ago as far as weather goes. I've got a bullydog monitor at home that I won on this forum a year or so ago. I'll have to see if that'll work with the Mirage without messing anything up.
