    How many miles/kilometers on your Mirage/Space Star so far? (PLUS! Leaderboard)

    Just curious to see who has covered the most distance so far in their 6th generation Mirage. How many miles/km on yours so far? Also, what Transmission do you have (so we can tell how those CVTs hold up)?

    How much do you normally drive in a year?

    (I don't drive a lot. Around 5,000 km / 3k mi a year. Mostly because I work from home, and I usually walk/bike in my small city. Which is one reason my 1998 Firefly/Metro has only 31,000 km (~20k mi.) on it. Also because it sat parked in a garage, unused for 7 years before I bought it! )

    I know. Some people see high miles/km as a badge of honour and like to share. That's what made me think of this thread idea.

    Also... as time goes on, it'll give people evidence that these cars will go the distance. From comments I read around the web, lots of people (North Americans especially) are nervous about small cars & small engines/transmissions. If people keep posting to this thread as they rack up the miles, it'll put minds at ease.

    I would but we dont have small cheap diesel vehicles here the vws tdis start over 20000usd. After taxes and everything on the mirage I spent 11000. That and diesel is about .8-.9 usd more than gas. 3.29 for 87 4.1-4.2 for diesel.

    Oh wow diesel really suck there. But indeed, for the same reason I don't buy diesel. They're way overpriced and the road tax is just 3-4 times higher than gas. It's break even lies around 150k driving a year!!! So i really don't get it why ppl will buy diesel
