When I first bought the car, the temperature gauge in the car didn't work. That was under warranty, and it was fixed for free.
The year after I had the car, a known defect popped up. The key would get stuck in the ignition! You could turn your car off/on/drive it, but couldn't get the key out. Again, it was a known issue, and was fixed for free.
After that I had many carefree years. I serviced it regularly, and it ran like a charm.
The AC was the last thing in 2000. Had the whole thing rebuilt at cost/discount, as the dealer was to wait to get my permission to look at AC (it's an internal/labor cost issue), and the mechanic screwed up. Good for me! Ended up saving me 300-500 dollars.
Had an axel that almost blew on me prior to driving it to shop. Was it the age of the car that caused the axel to give way? I live in a pretty big city and it has terrible roads in town. I may have hit something finally. Not sure there. They fixed it several times (5) before finally fixing it correctly. It was a shop issue ultimately, not a Mirage issue.
I love this car and want it back!
