2017 Mitsubishi Outlander - Kelly Mitsubishi - Emmaus, PA

As well as keeping to your recommended maintenance schedule for your Outlander’s engine, don’t forget to also keep an eye on your tires.
There are two basic maintenance tasks for tires. One is to make sure your tires are at their ideal inflation level and the other is that they are rotated periodically.
Tire rotation is the process of moving around the tire placement to balance rubber and tread wear. The rear tires are moved to the front and switched from the right side to the left; front tires are moved to the rear and also switched to their respective opposite sides.
If your Outlander is front wheel drive the tires will carry a different load and be utilized somewhat differently than those on the rear. In this scenario, the front tires will carry more of the vehicle’s weight, so they have a harder job. They also handle the bulk of the braking. It’s best over the lifetime of a set of tires that each tire share equally the positions of most stress.
Tire rotation is done on a regular schedule to make sure there is equal wear on each of the tires. Since it’s always a good idea to replace your tires as a set, this strategy avoids some tires wearing out faster than others. If you get a flat, or a tire is damaged in some inadvertent way, of course you’ll need to replace that single tire.
Your Outlander’s Owners’ Manual will have a recommended tire rotation schedule and a diagram of the rotation pattern that should be followed. When you bring your vehicle in to Kelly Mitsubishi, the mechanic performing the tire rotation will also do a visual safety check. This is also an important feature of tire rotation; you may be unaware that you picked up a nail or other foreign object in the tire itself that may cause damage or leakage over time.
 And then there is proper tire inflation; this is probably the most overlooked maintenance task by most drivers. You may like to take your Outlander on rough roads so it is especially important to check that pressure when you get back home, or on your next visit to fill up your tank. If you continue to drive when the tires are not properly inflated, tread wear and separation can be faster, leading to a shorter life span for your tires, and more expense.
Come in to Kelly Mitsubishi, your Mitsubishi service expert would be happy to talk to you about calibrating the correct tire pressure between service visits.
Make tire maintenance part of your regularly scheduled Outlander maintenance at Kelly Mitsubishi!

2017 Mitsubishi Mirage - Kelly Mitsubishi - Emmaus, PA

To take the best care of your new Mirage, Mitsubishi recommends factory-trained technicians service your vehicle at authorized Mitsubishi dealerships or shops. The place you purchased you Mirage would be first choice. After you drive your new baby home, take some time to get familiar with the Owners Manual – you’ll find out how to use lots of the new features and find some you may not have known you have! Pay particular attention to the warranty section and the section regarding the appropriate maintenance schedule for your Mirage.
It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain the vehicle in the way suggested by the manufacturer, Mitsubishi. It’s very important to be aware of that maintenance schedule as warranty coverage could possibly be voided if the maintenance schedule is not followed or you add some after market features!

As well as keeping your warranty valid, following the advised maintenance schedule is an essential ingredient in keeping your Mirage in the best possible condition.
There will be parts of the engine that need to be replaced at regular required intervals. Check your Manual for the milestones you should be watching out for.
The following are typical items that should be regularly maintained to avoid unnecessary wear and tear on your Mirage. Standard equipment that should be checked during a tune-up:

• Cooling system (including coolant hoses)
• Drive belts
• Emission system
• Exhaust system
• Filters: Air, Fuel, Oil
• Fuel hoses
• Fuel system
• Intake and exhaust valve clearance
• Spark plugs
• Timing belt

• Automatic transmission fluid
• Manual transmission / transaxle oil
• Clutch fluid
• Propeller shaft
• Rear Axle oil

• Suspension
• Ball joint and Steering linkage

• Brake fluid
• Brake hoses
• Brake pads

• Air conditioning
• Battery
• Tires
Items like spark plugs, the air and fuel filters, ignition cables, and other emissions-related components should be inspected and replaced as needed to keep the engine running properly.
It always feels great when picking up your Mirage after a tune up. The engine will generally feel pepper and smoother, better acceleration and fuel economy, with no shakes at idle. It’s a good feeling to know you’re taking care of your new car and that it will be problem-free and long lasting!

The Mitsubishi Mirage is back for 2017 with revised styling, interior enhancements, a touch more power under its plucky hood, out of this world fuel economy and it remains the least expensive car available that comes with a generous warranty.
On the outside the 2017 styling starts off with new front and rear bumpers and lower-body fine-tunes, restyled headlights and foglamps, a new grille, new 14- and 15-inch alloy wheels, and a new rear spoiler. The Mirage is the perfect city transport, the road grip and handling are secure with a comfortable and well-tempered ride, it is easy to park and make its way in and out of tight spots.

The five-passenger Mirage hatchback is offered in three trim levels: ES, SE and GT.  The ES replaces the DE as the base trim level, while the midrange SE and top-of-the-line GT are new offerings.

Mitsubishi Outlander - Kelly Mitsubishi - Emmaus, PA
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport offers a lot of value for the money, particularly when measured in features and options. It ranks as one of the more affordable small utility vehicles but it shows its superiority in class with all the equipment highlights and excellent safety ratings. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is not only Mitsubishi's smallest crossover model, it is also by far the most popular model in Mitusbishi’s U.S. lineup! Making it also a great investment for a future trade-in.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a sportier look than some of the plainer compact crossovers in the segment.  For 2016 it got a new nose design to incorporate the latest Mitsubishi styling flair called the "Dynamic Shield" front end, it brings the Sport closer in look to the full size Outlander.
Inside, the look is clean and minimalist. Soft-touch materials line the dash padding, and for 2016 there's a new light-gray interior option. Last year, the interior got a new carbon-look trim.
The Outlander Sport interior feels larger than you would expect from the outside. It is a half size smaller than others in the class, but it loses nothing in interior space. It has a nice, low cargo floor and rear seats which are easy to fold; 60/40 split. When these are down the cargo space opens to an impressive size. A pass through in the rear seat is also very accommodating.
The front seats are snug and supportive, back seats accommodate two adults or three kids very happily. The seat height is lower than larger SUVs that require a significant step up to enter the cabin, a ‘just right’ height feel. You can load children and car seats without injuring your back and the elderly will not require a stepstool. The rear seats have nicely contoured back rests, dual cup-holders, and a fold-down padded armrest.
Trim levels for the Outlander Sport start with the base ES, move up to the SE and SEL versions, and top out in the high-spec GT model.
Two engines are offered in the Outlander Sport, along with optional all-wheel drive for either. A five-speed manual gearbox is available only on the base 2.0 ES model with front-wheel drive; every other version uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Even at the base level, front knee airbags are a standard safety feature that you won't find in many other models; keyless entry, automatic climate control, and a 140-watt sound system are all included. Top-of-the-line SE models include a panoramic sunroof, premium audio, and heated seats.
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is top in class on maneuverability, making it a good city navigator. Out on the road, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport drives and corners with a light, responsive feel. The drive experience is more like a sedan than an SUV. If compactness and maneuverability are higher on your wish list than rugged, outdoor driving - but its still in contention - the Outlander Sport can deliver the best of both worlds.
Come in to Kelly Mitsubishi and explore your options for the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport!
