Have you had it during any REALLY cold weather yet.?
I would agree that the shifting on the Mirage is a bit notchy. It doesn't smoothly glide from one gear to the next. But, its not hard to shift from one gear to the next, it just kind of isn't smooth while doing so.

This winter it really hasn't gotten THAT cold. I don't think I've driven in any -0F weather yet. That being said, I've honestly not noticed when it has been cold shifting wise. Its never gotten that thick 'push it to get in gear' feel. The OE 75W-80 does seem to do a decent job. It'll be interesting to see what the new fluid feels like.
