Mitsubishi Outlander

Mitsubishi Outlander

Your car paint is looking faded? Or are you simply looking for a change of color? Painting your own car could save you thousands of bucks. Being systematic and good preparation will make your old rattletrap looking like a new one in no time. Do not know how to go about it? Our experts at Fuccillo Mitsubishi have listed down DIY tips for you to paint your own car.

What You Will Need

Painting can be done outside using certain precautions; however, it is better to use a shed to avoid mixing elements. Ample amount of 1200- and 2000- grit wet-and-dry sandpaper, masking tape, an air compressor, paint thinners, safety glasses, enamel paint, newspaper for masking off, spray gun, buffer, clear-coat lacquer, electric or air-powdered sander, a top coat and un undercoat. To keep the area clean, a dust extractor can come handy.

Prep the Painting Surface

Thoroughly wash and remove any rust if you want to paint your car's exterior. However, if you plan on painting the interior, wash all the cloth upholstery with a wet cloth and vacuum. Use 1200- grit wet sandpaper to prevent dust and dirt mixing and giving the surface an uneven finish. Use clear adhesion promoter to ensure proper adhesion when painting metal or hard plastics.

Use Quality Paint

It is integral that your paint should not be of poor quality. Paint will deteriorate if you use a paint of low quality regardless how well you painted the car in the first place. There are a number of companies offering high quality primers and paints that won't chip, flake, peel or crack and work flawlessly on vinyl, leather, and plastic, giving your paint job a professional look.

Coating

Do not try to paint the whole surface in the first coating; apply light, even coats. Do not lay a thick coat, cover the whole area though. Primer will show through the paint on the first coat- it is standard. Read the instructions on the can label on how long to wait between coats. Do not start painting a new coat unless the first one dries. Keep coating until you get the desired results.

It rides through traffic with ease responding quickly to the driver's input. In comparison to the last year's CVT, the new CVT mimics a 7-speed transmission using the paddle shifters. The smooth 5-speed manual transmission is available on the base model only. The trump card of Outlander Sport has to be its impressive handling.

Front seats are quite comfortable; the rear seats however, are cozy as long as no more than three adults are seated. The cargo capacity of 20 cubic feet behind the rear seat is not so great. However, the capacity will double upon folding the rear seats. Leather seating is available as an option with the SE touring Package. Leather can be found on its shift knob and steering wheel.

Mitsubishi Lancer

The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer sedan may not be an avant-garde vehicle; however, it does come with a number of attractive features that captures consumers" attention. The 2015 model offers a diverse range of engine options that few other vehicles can compete with. Here are the impressions of this magnificent vehicle at Fuccillo Mitsubishi.

Driving Impressions

The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer can be described as having a demure drive to a demon on four wheel, depending on the powertrain and trim level one goes for. The ES model is efficient with an engine of 148hp, sacrificing power for fuel economy. The performance and power of the turbocharged engine is exemplary. The GT variant exhibits impressive grip when cutting tight corners, agile handling, and strong braking. Interior sounds are high, but the noise isn't extreme enough to be a turn off. Insanely quick 0-60 mph run, power, and handling can make up for the booming exhaust note to some extent.

Safety

The car is equipped with the latest safety technologies, and has been named IIHS" Top Safety Pick for the 7th year running. The car did well on frontal and side impact test and has received four stars by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Fitted with anti-lock brakes, driver's knee airbag, front side airbags, and electronic stability control, the vehicle offers everything for a price so affordable as that of the base Lancer ES. It may be difficult for some drivers to see out when backing up or changing lanes because of Lancer's thick rear pillars and tall beltline though. However, taller drivers won't face this issue, do look out for the issue when test driving.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

Mitsubishi Lancer

The importance of tires in the safety of a car is oft overlooked; they are an integral component of a vehicle. The experts at Fuccillo Mitsubishi say that having the right tires for your Mitsubishi Lancer is more important than you think. Here, we have listed down a few tips on how to select the best tires for your car.

Tire shopping can be a headache, particularly due to recent technological advancements and the abundance of specialized tire genres. Tires have a lot more utility today than they had in previous times. But before details like tire types weigh you down, make sure that you find the right fit for your car.

Confirm the load carrying capacity, size and speed rating before you go tire shopping. Replacement tires should meet all the specifications of the original tires. You will be able to shop once you"ve jotted down the specifications. Make a list of priorities whether its price, longevity or performance. After the priority list, make another list based on your preferences and style. Tire salesmen can facilitate you in helping you narrow down the list of things you want.

There are three primary categories of tires- winter, summer, or all season. You can find several performance levels to suit your driving requirements within those types.

Premium tires are better quality products whether through effectiveness of their design, design and testing, stability and wear resistance, casing construction and consistency. Going for a tire of low quality is not a wise decision; you'll only end up having to spend more than you would have if you"d invested in a premium tire the first time around.

Tires sporting advanced tech are always a good choice. For instance, Yokohama's Advanced Inner Liner not merely boosts fuel efficiency by reducing rotating mass and enhancing performance. Moreover, these tires also increase tire longevity by minimizing air loss. Road noise is reduced significantly by Toyo's Silent Wall System.

Continental's Extreme Contact DWS tires give indicators that it's no longer safe to drive by making the letters disappear. For instance, if W disappears, it means that is unsafe to drive while it's raining.

Run-flat tires are expensive; however, they minimize risks associated with changing a flat tire by the roadside, and of course, the hassle that comes with a busted tire.

Green tires go beyond fuel efficiency; there are tires available in the market that use orange oil, a resource allowing petroleum to be substituted by natural rubber.

To buy tires of premium quality or to find out more about buying them, visit us at Fuccillo Mitsubishi located in Adams, New York. Residents of Watertown and Syracuse can also avail our services.
