2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

2018 Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage stands as one of the most affordable cars in the industry. Its low price point and a plethora of features make it a value-oriented model with few true competitors. On top of that, the Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback is a functional car that’s perfect for heading to college or going on spring break.

Capable of seating up to five passengers comfortably, the Mitsubishi Mirage boasts a surprising amount of interior space for such a small car; folding the rear seats down opens up a vast 47 cubic feet of cargo space. Despite its low pricing, the latest model features a standard rearview camera and LED taillights that prove it’s worth every penny.

A three-cylinder engine produces over 70 horsepower in the Mitsubishi Mirage. That peppy engine returns hybrid-like fuel economy, up to an EPA-estimated 37/43 MPG City/Highway.* Thanks to its small size, the Mirage is capable of navigating tight city streets and fitting into small parking spaces with ease.

To top it all off, the Mitsubishi Mirage comes backed by a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty coupled with a five-year/60,000-mile transferable new vehicle warranty. Owners will also enjoy five years of roadside assistance coverage.

Visit our team at Pantilli Mitsubishi to take the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage for a test drive.

Fall Service Tips to Protect Your Vehicle

Fall Vehicle Service

Taking care of your car isn’t only important for the sake of your vehicle—it’s important for your safety, too. These fall service tips will help you maintain your vehicle’s performance so that you can have safe driving moving into the fall season.

Tires

Keeping your tires properly inflated is a critical part of driving in autumn rain showers. Driving on wet roads is also much safer when your tires are in good shape, showing no signs of visible damage and maintaining a deep, healthy tread.

Battery

If the car battery is old, it may perform fine in the summer and then surprise you by dying in the autumn. This is because cold weather is tough on batteries. Avoid getting stranded by bringing your car into Pantilli Mitsubishi to have your battery tested and replaced if needed before the low temperatures hit.

Brakes

It’s obviously important to have healthy brakes when you’re preparing to drive on rain, show, or ice. If you feel a pumping or pulsing when you brake, if you hear a squeaking, or if it’s been awhile since the brakes were checked, have them looked at by our team at Pantilli Mitsubishi. We’ll make sure your vehicle is set for safe driving on slick roads.

Reasons Why Mitsubishi’s Warranty Is the Best

Mitsubishi’s Warranty Is the BestIf you’re shopping for a new car, you’ve no doubt heard about the benefits of warranties. This is one of many reasons why people choose to buy new or CPO over used. The peace of mind that comes with warranty coverage is often worth the extra money. But, the fact is that no two warranties are created equal, and the Mitsubishi warranty happens to offer benefits that outweigh those of other manufacturer warranties.

Powertrain Limited Warranty

The powertrain limited warranty serves to protect buyers from potential damage or malfunctions in the engine and transmission. It will cover the cost of repairs or replacements to this area. In brands like Honda, Toyota, Mazda, and Nissan, you’ll find that the powertrain limited warranty lasts around 5 years/60,000 miles. With Mitsubishi, however, buyers get a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

New Vehicle Limited Warranty

This warranty will pay for replacements or repairs to most parts of the entire new vehicle, excluding parts that need regular replacements like tires and light bulbs. For other brands, the new vehicle limited warranty usually lasts 3 years/36,000 miles, but for Mitsubishi, you’re covered in this area for 5 years/60,000 miles.

Mitsubishi warranties also come with additional advantages, like a five-year roadside assistance plan. Mitsubishi’s Warranty is the best because the brand is absolutely confident in its vehicles, and you should be too.

Tips for Travelling with Pets This Summer

Asher House

More and more drivers prefer to travel with their pets, especially on summer vacations. That’s why we at Pantili Mitsubishi have written these tips for travelling with pets. From proper restraints to knowing when to take a break, there are some important things to keep in mind when driving with your furry companion.

According to the DMV, driving with a pet is like driving with a small child in many ways. You should never leave them unattended, always use proper safety equipment, and be prepared for messes. In particular, you should stop every two hours for water and a bathroom break when travelling with dogs, and never leave them in the car. Temperatures can soar on hot days, which is often fatal for pets.

Avoid letting your pet stick its head out the window, regardless of how much it might enjoy it. That’s because this can cause respiratory problems, road debris can strike your pet, and they can escape in the event of an accident. Pets should be in small carriers that securely strap into the seat. For big dogs, consider buying a rear seat barrier.

Finally, be prepared for messes. Some companies offer no-spill dog bowls for your pet to have fresh water all the time, and many suggest travelling with newspaper, towels, and cleaning supplies.

To avoid car sickness on long trips, try car training. This involves taking short trips with your pet to get them acclimated. Above all, if you notice your pet is too stressed, consider just leaving them at home.

Recreated Model A Marks Mitsubishi’s 100-Year Anniversary

Mitsubishi’s 100-Year Anniversary

Partnering with West Coast Customs, Mitsubishi recently developed a special version of the model that inspired it all: the Mitsubishi Model A. In celebration of Mitsubishi’s 100-year anniversary, the 1917 vehicle will be recreated with some new additions, including a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

According to Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi Model A recreation was the first car to have the Mitsubishi emblem, launching in Japan with a limited 22-car production. Featured in an episode of Inside West Coast Customs on the Velocity network, the Mitsubishi Model A is a four-door seven-seat sedan that has a town car body style.

“We’re proud to be a 100-year-old brand with a rich heritage in the automotive landscape. The Mitsubishi Model A is the vehicle that paved the way for many other unique and exciting models over the years and we’re excited to re-design it with West Coast Customs,” said Francine Harsini, senior director of marketing at MMNA.

In lieu of the 35-horsepower 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine in the original, the new Model A will have a plug-in hybrid powertrain borrowed from the Outlander PHEV. This includes the Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system and a 2.0-liter gas engine that’s paired with two high-performance electric motors. The new Model A is just one of the many ways Mitsubishi is celebrating its 100-year anniversary.

We at Pantili Mitsubishi couldn’t be happier to be a part of the Mitsubishi legacy.

Mitsubishi is one of three finalists for the Introduction Award category for the 2017 WOMMY Awards, offered for the most remarkable word-of-mouth marketing and social media. Essentially, people love Mitsubishi models so much that they talk about the brand more than any other in the industry.

This includes some of the complex driver assist technologies that hit the market, especially those offered on the Mitsubishi Outlander.

“We challenged our social media team to come up with an unexpected campaign that touted the safety features in the 2017 Outlander in an engaging way that broke through the clutter in the social world,” said Francine Harsini, senior director of marketing.
