how-to-change-a-tire-photo-268125-s-1280x782

When making the switch between your all-season and winter tires, how do you make sure the tires you"ve stowed away aren't going to be affected by elements like heat and light that hasten aging? The pros at Fuccillo Mitsubishi in Adams share some insider tips with you.

1. Take the weight off the tires

This is especially true when you are storing your vehicle for a long period of time. The inactivity proves to be more damaging than the wear and tear incurred with weekly routines. This is because the constant weight creates flatspots and ages its rubber in a prematurely. Put the car on jack stands instead and store the wheels separately; the plastic tire rests will not only be expensive, but also not as effective as you want.

2. Don't forget to clean them

Your tires still have the grime, dirt, and brake dust accumulated with driving. Given that you are storing them away and won't be likely to require their services anytime soon, it is best to clean them thoroughly. If you let them stick to the tires for the period, your tires will likely be damaged when you need them. After you have cleaned them, avoid the tire-dressing products and see that there isn't any moisture remaining on them.

3. Put them in a bag

It is not essential that you place each tire into an opaque, plastic bag, but it is advisable. You can use a vacuum cleaner to keep them airtight before taping it shut. The technique is valuable because it keeps the rubber oils from evaporating and thus prevents the dry/crack that you see in tires, which have been stored inappropriately, exposed to moisture and humidity fluctuations. Do not purchase the totes, which even as they seem to be a more convenient option for easy carrying and transportation, aren't airtight and protective.

Additionally, you can also mark them in the position they have been taken from, like left front or left rear, so you may be able to rotate or replace them accordingly the next time.

4. Consider a cool and dry place to store them

Put them in direct range of UV rays and you can observe for yourself how quickly the rubber deteriorates while soaking up the heat! A cool and dry environment like a climate-controlled workshop/garage or even your basement can be suitable for them. Note, a standard garage can be just as harmful as storing them in an attic or outdoors can be because then your tires experience extreme seasonal conditions. Likewise, do not place them near machinery like furnaces or pumps that produce ozone and thus damage your tires.

If you don't have a place to store them indoors, ask your car dealership or mechanic for specialized facilities nearby for tire storage. They will also perform a detailed inspection to check if it's in good condition or not and be extra mindful when stacking our white letter tires. All these precautionary measure can slow down the aging process of your tires.

mitsu-lancer-2015

Sure you bought a vehicle for how well it performed on the road or how comfortable the seats or the overall cabin appeared to be. However, you shouldn't have to compromise on the entertainment system. You can hardly claim to not like listening to music while making a trip however short or long that is. Even as shopping at Fuccillo Mitsubishi in Watertown means you will have the top-notch equipment to enjoy, the following suggestions are to help you make yours function better.

1. Soundproof Your Vehicle

You won't read many car reviews that do not mention road noise cutting through their otherwise perfect experience. What's more, with the majority of speakers being mounted in the front door doors or behind the rear seats, the thin material of your door panels and in the rear sear tend to vibrate when you play them loud. It's no-brainer that the sound quality gets compromised. Making changes inside with closed cell foam and sound deadening mats can significantly enhance the sound as the frequency or degree of noise pouring in are filtered.

2. Adding Amplifier and/or Upgrading Speakers

It may be possible that the factory stereo puts out plenty of power, but wait until you hear the sound quality an outboard amplifier will produce. This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to boost your sound system. In fact, the amplifiers nowadays, simple, compact, and easy-to-install as they are, are specially designed with respect to a car.

Next up, if you think your car, with its "premium sound system", has been fitted with sub-standard speakers - thus the low quality of music - it is always a good idea to replace them sooner than later. You don't need one ruining your favorite song by being too quiet or muffled when options like full-range aural components are available.

3. Music Files and a Lower Compression Level

Modern cars featuring USB or auxiliary slot along with their built-in sound systems means you can simply plug the phone in and be set to go. The thing is, you need to select a lower level of compression when using your MP3 player, iPod, or through streaming services over Bluetooth or WiFi for digital music files. Does it matter that you cannot store more files when the ones you have at least sound interesting on the player?

4. Install a Subwoofer

Hard driving and air leaks can affect your sub boxes besides a poor match to your audio system. Yet you need one to complement your music without having to rattle the windows of the cars or houses you pass by on the street. There are plenty of solutions to keep consumers from worrying about loss of usable space or budget.

Improving the audio quality in your car is to ensure you are really listening to all the details your music has to offer. Additional components and a couple of not-so-complicated tweaks can see you have the ideal entertainment hub when driving.

Good Amount of Cabin Space

If you have a huge family and are concerned about your spending, the Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 is the car for you. Compared to the previous models, the car may not be that sporty, but if your budget is tight, it is still a good choice.

Specially designed for big families, the 2015 Outlander features three rows in the cabin and offers a comfortable fit. It may lack design, but the performance is still acceptable and efficiency has also improved.

Bold Looking Exterior

Unlike the previous models, the design of the 2015 Outlander is bolder and features a modified front end. The resultant vehicle is not a sportier vehicle but instead one that looks simple and modest. You can say the same for its interior.

Impressive Interior

While the Exterior design may not impress you much, the inside certainly will. The interior of the Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 is above par in nearly every aspect, when you compare it with other crossovers.

There are three rows of seats, which allow seven people to fit in comfortably in addition to the driver. There is plenty of headroom for all rows, and the first and second rows also enjoy good leg space. The third row is not so roomy, but then don't forget that the Outlander is definitely one of the one of the most compact vehicles that we have ever seen when you consider three row cars.

You can fold the seats flat, whereas you can slid the seats in the second row to fine-tune the legroom. As for the driving seat, it is in a great position, featuring a tilt/telescopic steering. While the cabin is compact yet roomy, it does not have a luxurious touch, and features average quality materials.

Improved Performance

The Mitsubishi Outlander 2015 offers a good drive and nimble handling, which the manufacturer achieves by reducing structural weight. Mitsubishi has used higher tensile steel for the body, and the car is also slickly faster than other previous models.

The standard model features a four-cylinder engine, specified by 2.4 liter and 166 horsepower. The GT models feature an improved engine that improves to a V6 with 224 horsepower.

The Good and the Bad of the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander

There are some good and some bad things about the 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander. The things you'll like include:

  • The versatility offered in the cargo space
  • The car has three rows of seats, and still looks compact
  • The fuel economy of the city is quite impressive
  • There are plenty of safety features on board

 

On the other hand, the things you won't like include:

  • The model with the V6 engine, which does not commute
  • Bluetooth is an optional feature, and not a standard in all models
  • The looks are a bit dull and do not show an impressive design or some sort of innovation

2015_Mitsu_Mirage

Mitsubishi Mirage

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage picks up where the cult left off. It is a fun, cheeky and cheap to run but it ticks more boxes than that for its small price.

Good Passenger and Trunk Space

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is practical and spacious for its size. The boot is bigger than in previous models and has plenty of room for your cargo. The seats fold down 60/40 to create even more space. Passengers in the little 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage will be surprisingly comfortable because legroom and headroom is pretty good. Similarly, storage is also good in this car because there are a range of decent sized cupboards used to hold all your bits and pieces.

Enjoyable and Fuel Efficient Drive

Mitsubishi has built the 2015 Mirage to be as light as possible in order to ensure that its one of the most efficient cars on the road. In fact, one of its best assets is fuel economy. No matter which trim level you go for, they all emit very little grams per little of carbon dioxide and have an excellent MPG for the city and for the highway.

As you would expect from a car in this category, the controls are really light which makes the car easy to drive. As Mitsubishi has designed the 2015 Mirage by keeping the city in mind, the car has an excellent turning circle which makes lightweight of any roundabout. However, here is where we put a halt to discussing all the good things about this car as the 2015 Mirage has plenty of cons to discuss as well.

The Cons

Starting with the fact that you can only get the automatic if you go for the top trim level. This means that you effectively pay for things like key less entry, fifteen-inch alloy rims and leather bound steering wheels. This isn't good news for people who want something a little more basic.

Moving onto the interior quality, even though it appears good, the touch materials seem like something you'll find in a car built in the 1900's.Also,the driving experience isn't the best you'll get as the steering is a bit weird, the handling wallowy and the ride can feel fidgety at high speeds.

If you venture out of the city and onto the highway, don't expect the vehicle to be quick because it has a quite low powered small three-cylinder engine However, worse than that is the funny wind chime noise that sounds through the car when you don't have the stereo on. A hippie may like that noise but to tell you the truth, it is missing that refinement that you'll find in other small hatchbacks.

In spite of all this, the 2015 Mitsubishi has an edge over its competitors as it is more affordable and does very well in terms of reliability stakes. Combine these factors with all those boxes that the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage does tick as well as the fact that it has a 5 starts safety rating and you have a winner. If you're interested in the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage and want to test-drive the car then visit Fuccillo Mitsubishi in Adams.
