Mitsubishi has been leading the auto industry with their warranty coverage for quite some time. Having a warranty on one’s vehicle is important, it helps to save some cash when a repair or replacement part is needed. However, warranties always feel like they’re designed to last up until a component’s breaking point. With Mitsubishi Motors, warranties last a lot longer and cover a whole lot of car parts.
2017 Model-Year Mitsubishi Warranties
Mitsubishi has several warranties that cover all of its vehicles. Each one begins the date an owner officially owns a vehicle (buy or lease).
New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Most basic limited warranties offered by manufacturers cover a car for three years or 36,000 miles, but Mitsubishi extends their basic limited warranty for five years or 60,000 miles.
The basic warranty covers vehicle parts supplied by Mitsubishi Motors North America, excluding the batteries and the restraint system. If the battery needs to be replaced within two years of ownership, it can be replaced for free. If the battery needs to be replaced between two and three years of ownership, Mitsubishi will replace the battery at half price.
Whether you like crossovers, sedans, fuel efficient cars, or even electric vehicles, Mitsubishi has upgraded their models for the 2017 model year. So let’s take a quick look at some of the highlights for each Mitsubishi model.
2017 Mitsubishi Lancer
The Mitsubishi Lancer is a classic. Many of the Lancer trims are available with AWC or “all-wheel control” for better handling when on the road. The base trim is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC engine, granting it 148 horsepower. MIVEC is Mitsubishi’s patented VVT system, a design implemented for performance and fuel economy. The EPA for the Lancer is 27/34 mpg city/highway, so the proof is in the pudding.
Some of the other standard features are 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels, the popular FUSE Hands-Free link system, and a 6.1-inch touchscreen with rearview camera. You’re not going to see many base trim vehicles with a touchscreen and a camera. On the higher end trims, luxury features like leather trim, heated front seats, and premium audio systems are at your fingertips.
The starting MSRP is $17,795 and is backed by the best coverage from Mitsubishi, nearly doubling every other auto brand warranty on the market today.
