Why Buy a Mitsubishi in 2018
Shopping for a new or used car means considering more than a dozen brands, even two dozen if you consider luxury, high-end and exotic brands. That said, most of us shop the mainstream brands, because that’s where the best values are. Mitsubishi is one such automaker that fits the mainstream bill. Here’s why we think you should consider buying a Mitsubishi product this year.
Q. Is Mitsubishi around for the long haul?
A. This is a very good question. Up until two years ago, Mitsubishi was losing market share and scaling back new product launches and its model line. Rumors that the company would depart the North American market were rampant. But much has changed since 2016, when Nissan acquired controlling interest in Mitsubishi. With that move, Mitsubishi was added to the Renault-Nissan alliance, forming what is now the world’s largest automaker. Thus, Mitsubishi isn’t going anywhere. In fact, the automaker is poised to grow its product line over the coming years.
Q. What kind of warranties does Mitsubishi offer?
A. Another solid question! As you know, warranties offer the assurance people need that if something were to go wrong with their car, the manufacturer will back them up. Mitsubishi has one of the strongest warranty plans in the industry. Indeed, you’ll find a 5-year/100,000 km fully transferable New Vehicle Limited Warranty, which matches what some luxury manufacturers offer and outperforms what competing brands have in place, by up to two years! Further, you’ll find a 10-year/160,000 km Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 10-year/160,000 km Mechanical Breakdown Package. You’ll also find a 3 years or 60,000 km warranty on Mitsubishi accessories. That’s three times as long as what most competitors offer!
Q. What types of vehicles does Mitsubishi currently sell?
A. Mitsubishi is a small vehicle manufacturer and as such you’ll find a variety of vehicles. Its car models include the subcompact Mirage, offering one of the best values in all of Canada and the outgoing Lancer compact sedan and Sportback. You’ll find a family of crossover SUVs too — Outlander, the all-new Eclipse Cross and the RVR. The Outlander is also available as a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Further, all models come with front-wheel drive with some offering all-wheel control and super all-wheel control, especially ideal for our tough winters!
Q. Can I lease or buy a new Mitsubishi?
A. Absolutely! In fact, you’ll find that Mitsubishi regularly runs promotions, featuring financing specials and lease deals. As with any kind of credit, much depends on your creditworthiness. This means you need to have income, pay your bills on time, show an ability to repay what you borrow and handle the upkeep costs of a new car. No worries here…your salesperson can help you find the new Mitsubishi you want. Or, he or she can get you behind the wheel of a used car. Whatever works best for you!
