I saw old friends, an aunt and uncle who are in their 90s, and visited places I hadn't seen since I was a kid in the 1960s. The states I visited: Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, and Massachusettes. Sights included: Flight 93 National Memorial, Antietam National Battlefied, Ocean City Maryland, Cape Cod, Niagara Falls, Harper's Ferry National Park, and a few other places in between.
    I even drove over the top of Manhattan (George Washington Bridge?) which was 40 minutes of sheer terror!

    All in all the little Mirage is a good-riding comfy highway cruiser. I'm a 67 year old retiree and the low cost of driving this buggy allows me to take off on a road trip at anytime. Also, this is my first new car purchase in 50 years with an automatic. And I LOVE the CVT!!! There, I said it.

    A year full of highlights. And the 2018 Mirage will hit 100,000 miles sometime in January! Next year.....West Coast.

    Wil - That was a most excellent post! Good luck out west. I hope to be in the same position in about 10 years. Like I said in my post, the Mirage is a helluva vehicle!

    I bet if we were magically able to know the vehicle that averaged the most miles out of a JATCO CVT7, the Mirage would be on top.

    So far nary a hiccup with 98,000 miles on this transmission. And it is very much improved from the CVT in my first Mirage - 2015 model. That trans was a little wonky, occasional lagging shifts and hard releases when coming to a stop. All fixed in the 2017-18 models. So no CVT complaints from me!

    Well done! Here's to another 100k miles! Merry Christmas!
