2016 Mitsubishi Lancer - Fuccillo Mitsubishi - Watertown, NY

2016 Mitsubishi Lancer

For 2016 the Mitsubishi Lancer lineup, we saw a lot of added value with increased levels of standard equipment. This compact 4-door rides, drives and handles better than the expectations of its segment average. It’s a sporty compact  car whose ride handles the rough spots well. It’s stable and predictable and it navigates mountain curves and freeway off-ramps with responsive precision.

Design

Inside is a new front center console and improved audio display, and outside is a new front fascia and chrome grille. The Mitsubishi Lancer is an exceptional choice for a shopper on a moderate budget looking for a lot of features. The 2016 Lancer is a fun-to-drive, compact, 4-door sedan that offers lots of value for the money, a generous assortment of standard safety features and an industry-leading warranty coverage offered by Mitsubishi – that provides a nice sense of comfort.

As part of its value message the 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer offers a well-equipped package. Standard on the ES 2.0 model are fog lights, power and heated mirrors, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, 140-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio, Bluetooth, Fuse voice recognition, steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, power windows and door locks and a comprehensive array of safety features.

The Lancer has a great reputation for lots of passenger space in the class. Comfort in the back seat is unrivaled, delivering an almost midsize accommodation in a compact package. The trunk offers a maximum of 12.3 cu ft.; however, the Rockford Fosgate system's subwoofer does cut that to 11.8 cu ft…priorities??

Performance

The ES 2.4, SE 2.4 and SEL 2.4 models include standard the electronically controlled all-wheel drive, which Mitsubishi calls All-Wheel Control, for exemplary traction no matter what the weather brings. It includes a mode selector for front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive "Auto" or all-wheel-drive "Lock," to maintain optimum traction in all kinds of weather or driving conditions.

The three middle trim levels, ES 2.4, SE 2.4 and SEL 2.4, all have the 2.4-liter engine, continuously variable transmission and All-Wheel Control electronically controlled all-wheel drive. Moving up through the trims adds automatic on/off headlights, rain-sensing wipers, more audio system speakers, leather and other convenience items.

Those looking for the best in-car audio in a compact sedan will be impressed by the 2016 Lancer’s 9-speaker, 710-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system; it’s standard on the GT 2.4 and optional, as part of the Sun and Sound Package, on the ES 2.0 with CVT.

The front-wheel-drive Lancer ES comes standard with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is a 5-speed manual, returning EPA estimates of 24 miles per gallon in the city and 34 mpg on the highway. A CVT is optional.

Both the SE and SEL have all-wheel drive and the CVT as standard, along with a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 168 hp and 167 lb-ft of torque. When the lower ES level is specified with this larger engine, it also receives the all-wheel drive/CVT combination. Fuel consumption here is 23 mpg city/31 mpg hwy.

 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander - Fuccillo Mitsubishi - Watertown, NY

 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

With the 2016 Outlander, Mitsubishi Motors takes unrivaled refinement and couples it to a commanding and dynamic new look. The Outlander has become renowned for its vigor and stellar road performance.  Out on the highway the driving experience is sublime, urban driving takes on a whole new assertive aspect with smooth, taut handling that gets you through traffic and narrow passages. The seven passenger Outlander for 2016 presents an unparalleled SUV driving experience.

Design

The high quality workmanship starts at the driver compartment and extends to the front passenger seat and throughout the cabin.  The interior trim uses premium quality materials including genuine leather. Outlander surrounds you and your passengers with comfort, making even the longest journeys a pleasure thanks to generous cabin space and comfortable seating; the same attention is paid to the padding and springs in the third-row seat cushions, contributing to the riding comfort of all the passengers. You can even recline the seatbacks to any of four settings.

The rear seating can also be flexibly arranged to meet your cargo needs. The second and third-row seats can be adjusted to carry almost any combination of passengers and luggage. The second-row seat has a sliding function that allows easy access to the third-row seats.  And another ingenious feature is that all the rear seatbacks can be folded down to create an extremely large and flat luggage area.

Performance

The nimble handling and perceptive response of the Outlander put you in total control. The interior comfort and quiet leave behind the less attractive feature of city driving.  The exterior body delivers with solid-closing doors, enhancing the extremely quiet interior of the Outlander. Mitsubishi technicians have introduced 33 enhancements to NVH reduction.

Technology and Safety

The Outlander entertainment system enhances your driving pleasure with high-quality sound from the radio, CDs or your plugged-in device with a Rockford Fosgate Premium Sound System.

USB Ports & 12V Power Outlets are conveniently located inside the center floor console, allowing easy access once you open the lid and then the ability to conceal the devices once they’re attached.

Adjustments can be made easily by touching the 6.1-inch QVGA touch-panel display screen or pressing the controls mounted onto the steering-wheel. Here you will see the rear view monitor that shows the approximate backing-up course of the car as well as a view of what's behind the car on the large display screen.

 The new-generation CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) offers even smoother, more satisfying handling through any driving encounter you may have, winter driving will be safer and more comfortable than in the past. The Outlander delivers the high performance you demand of a larger SUV, including that solid acceleration with strong presence and drive.
 
Having peace of mind always makes for a more pleasurable driving experience, so the Outlander comes equipped with many safety measures to protect you and your passengers. These measures include a highly protective RISE (Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution) body, seven SRS airbags, and intelligent electronic functions that help prevent frontal collisions the rear view monitor for backing up safely.
 
 
To explore all the standard and optional features for the 2016 Mitusbishi Outlander, come for a test drive at Fuccillo Mitsubishi and speak with our Mitsubishi professionals!

Mitsubishi Lancer

We all know that maintaining our vehicles by performing regular auto repair and car service is essential to getting the most out of your new or used Mitsubishi Lancer. Because we are dedicated to helping you do just that, our dealership has a state of the art auto repair and service center staffed with factory trained technicians ready to perform all needed maintenance and repairs. Our auto repair service center in Watertown serves all the areas surrounding, Jefferson County, Adams and Syracuse.

As well as regular maintenance our experts can help diagnose any irregularity that may pop up. Even if you prefer to do your own repairs, visit our auto parts center and get all the Mitsubishi car parts you need. Regardless of whether your car is a new or used Lancer our professionals we'll give it the TLC it needs or give you guidance.  When it comes to parts, including tires, your dealership understands that the right components provide superb performance and handling for the highest quality standards.

For example, what if your Lancer’s Check Engine Light comes on? The following is a list of a range of common causes for the check engine light coming on. In order to identify your issue, please come in and see us at Fuccillo Mitsubishi to decode the problem:

Issue and Possible Solution

  • Gas cap is loose - Tighten the gas cap
  • Oxygen sensor (O2) may be bad - Consider replacing the oxygen sensor
  • Spark plugs may need replacing - Replace spark plugs
  • Spark plug wires may need replacing - Consider replacing spark plug wires
  • Catalytic converter may be faulty - Check to see if catalytic converter is faulty or missing
  • Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is faulty - Consider replacing your mass airflow sensor

If the case is that the Check Engine Light is indicating an issue with the oxygen sensor this could be a very complicated matter for the do-it-yourselfer.

With each new model year, manufacturers are adding more oxygen sensors to better manage engine operation. Some high performance engines even have an oxygen sensor for each cylinder. There could be one on each catalytic convertor as well. The oxygen sensors are screwed to the exhaust pipe, either in front or back of the catalytic converter. The front sensors measure the amount of oxygen in the exhaust system to measure how rich or lean the gases are as they exit the combustion chamber.

Depending upon whether the exhaust gas is high in oxygen content, known as ‘lean’, or low in oxygen content, known as ‘rich’, the amount of fuel entering the engine is adjusted by the engine management computer to maintain an ideal mixture that produces the lowest emissions output from the catalytic convertor. The purpose of the rear oxygen sensor(s) is to monitor the oxygen content of the exhaust gases leaving the catalytic convertor. If one or more of the oxygen sensors are faulty, your car may not pass an emissions test. Driving your car with a faulty oxygen sensor may result in poor gas mileage as well as damage the catalytic converter.

Symptoms:

  • Check Engine light is on
  • Poor gas mileage
  • Failed emission test

What your Mitsubishi professional mechanic can do if you suspect an oxygen sensor problem:

  • Scan the computer in the car for codes
  • Inspect for vacuum leaks and holes in the exhaust system
  • Remove and replace the oxygen sensor if it is bad
  • Check electrical connections
  • Check for proper operation of oxygen sensors
  • Clear diagnostic codes

Because cars depend on an ideal fuel-to-air ratio to function optimally, engine performance is heavily dependent on the oxygen sensors doing their job. When your oxygen sensors fail, your car will run less smoothly, get worse mileage, and have worse emissions.

Mitsubishi Outlander

You’ve bought your new Outlander, driving it around with everything running top notch, the interior spic and span.  Wouldn’t it be great to bottle up that new car feeling? There is a way - by regularly maintaining your Outlander with us at Fuccillo Mitsubishi. That energy you feel behind the wheel when you drove it home will be a constant for tens of thousands of miles.

The best way to understand what a maintenance schedule for your new Outlander should look like is to page through the Owner’s Manual. As well as the procedures under the hood, don't forget about tire rotations, new tires, and other basic exterior maintenance tasks.

As a guideline, there are some major vehicle milestones that, while doing a regular service, allow our service team to inspect your Outlander for any issues that could cause serious damage from occurring, especially if you drive under severe conditions:

15,000-Mile Service

This will occur about a year after driving your new Outlander, schedule service with Fuccillo Mitsubishi and we’ll take your vehicle through our standard inspection and service process. In addition to changing your oil and certain filters, we’ll make recommendations for replacing worn wiper blades, replenish necessary fluids, and check your brakes.

30,000-Mile Service

You will hit this mark about 2 years into driving your (still!) new Outlander. At the 30,000-mile marker, which usually occurs two to three years into ownership we will perform all the maintenance tasks done at 15,000 miles, but we’ll also check on things like the fuel filter, which commonly will need replacement around this time. It’s possible some engine coolant will need replacement and your transmission and power steering fluids could be replaced as well.

45,000-Mile Service

At 45,000-50,000 miles, your Mitsubishi professional mechanic will take a closer look at engine and transmission components. Spark plugs start to wear out and it might also be time for a new ignition management system. We can give you recommendations on any major service that might be required, or that you should schedule to have done in the near future – no surprises! You have better things to worry about than whether or not your car will start, and this inspection will help you put those concerns to rest.

If between regular maintenance your Check Engine light comes on, it’s always a good idea to bring it in for a diagnostic check. When that light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes will be stored in the engine control module. These codes remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, your Mitsubishi professional can retrieve that code and its troubleshooting information to determine the next step.

When you buy your car from Fuccillo Mitsubishi, our service center can help you establish a recommended maintenance schedule for your new Outlander giving you a guideline going forward to keep that new car power and feel through the years!

Mitsubishi Mirage

Mitsubishi Motors has manufactured the superior vehicle you own today, and we at Fuccillo Mitsubishi want to ensure it remains that way.  Whether your Mirage has taken you 10,000 miles or 100,000 miles, our service and repair provides access to the latest specialized technology, genuine parts and precision analysis from our Mitsubishi trained technicians.

By bringing your Mitsubishi vehicle to Fuccillo Mitsubishi for all your service and repair needs, from regularly scheduled appointments to major repairs, you can count on a continued reliable, pleasant driving experience for every single mile of your lease or ownership.

As well as having the knowledge as to what your vehicle needs and when, we can advise you what special cautions you might need to take in order to keep your warranty valid. We know you take pride in keeping your vehicle in top shape and we want to be your partner.

For example, with the change of seasons and the switch over from the AC to the heater, you might want to have the Cabin Air Filter inspected and perhaps replaced:

All about Cabin Air Filter Replacement

When you turn on your heating or the air conditioner, that air you feel originates from outside the car. Your Mirage’s cabin air filter cleans that air, capturing much of the dust, dirt, and harmful pollutants in the air before passing it through the heating or air conditioning system. When functioning properly, the cabin air filter assures that the air coming through your vents is clean.

When the cabin air filter gets old and/or stops working, the air that enters your vents comes through less filtered and can be harmful to breathe. A dirty cabin air filter can also interfere with the flow of air to the vents, which lowers the overall power of your heating or air conditioning system.

Don’t confuse the cabin air filter with the air filter. As described, the cabin air filter cleans the air coming from the vents into the car; the air filer cleans the air that goes into the engine to burn fuel.  Inspecting and changing that is a different job that we are happy to perform for you too! Let us inspect the condition of your cabin air filter before temperatures start to drop, and it’s possible you may have more than one cabin air filter.

Manufacturers and Dealers alike will recommend using genuine Mitsubishi parts, which we keep well stocked at Fuccillo Mitsubishi. From the crankshaft to your accessory driven components such as A/C, power steering, and the water pump; some non-genuine drive belts won't match Mitsubishi's high standards of performance. Genuine Mitsubishi belts are manufactured with composites to operate over a very wide range of temperature extremes to provide extremely high load capacity, long life, and quiet operation.

Proper maintenance helps keep your Mirage feeling newer longer. With regular maintenance, that excitement you feel behind the wheel will hold true for years to come! Regular maintenance at the intervals Mitsubishi Motors recommends will help ensure your vehicle’s performance, fuel economy, reliability as well as protection for your investment! 

For all your Mitsubishi Car or SUV repair and service contact Fuccillo in Watertown serving all areas surrounding, Jefferson County, Adams and Syracuse!
