Fummins has a large Mirage fleet of like 30 units. I think only 3 have given him issues. All the 2015s are probably at or over 200k miles. The odds are in our favor, with diligent maintenance, of hitting that and more.
But even at 145k, that's still 80k more to go on my car, and still more than the 60k I hope for
I would listen to Dirk. I believe he's overcome his CVT anxiety.

My point is today's cars should last a long time if taken care of. Obviously, manual transmissions can have problems, too. If a transmission can't last the lifetime of the vehicle, I would not be all that impressed with the car. I really don't care what brand it is.
Overall, Fummins' fleet of cars has done well, & that is promising for CVT owners.
Approved by the one and only MirageRally...lol
My neighbor is 800 miles shy of 500,000 miles on his Dodge Dakota V8. I saw him today at his son's graduation party & asked. I know someone else who was on their 3 transmission before reaching 55,000 miles on their Dodge Ram truck.
I sort of liked the proven powertrains of some of the older vehicles. I did some major searching on this forum before buying a Mirage. Otherwise, I probably would have bought a used Yaris or Fit.
