Mitsubishi Outlander Maintenance - Fuccillo Mitsubishi - Watertow, NY

 
Once you’ve gotten your new Outlander, and you want to maintain that new car feel for as long as you can, there’s one thing you can’t ignore: regular maintenance. The best way to understand your maintenance schedule is to page through the Outlander Owner’s Manual. Most important at season change is to get a safety check, particularly tires and oil to make sure you have the winter specs all in place.
 
If you drove your Outlander in the summer this year and are preparing to switch over from the AC to the heater, you might also want to have the Cabin Air Filter inspected and perhaps replaced.
 
The air you feel when you turn on your heating or the air conditioner originates from the same place: the outside of the car. Pulling that air in requires it to pass through the air filter for cleaning. The filter functions long and hard season after season, capturing the dust, dirt and harmful pollutants from before they can enter the cabin of your Outlander. When everything is working as designed, the cabin air filter keeps the cabin air clean for you.
 
The filter does get old and does start to wear out at varying time increments depending on how you use your Outlander, becoming less and less effective. Not only will the air quality suffer but also since there is stress on the air flow, the power and efficiency of your heater will suffer. Something you won’t be happy about on a freezing, snowy day!
 
Sometimes we get confused between the air filter and the cabin air filter; the air filer is under the hood and cleans the air that goes into the engine to burn fuel. The cabin filter brings air from outside into the cabin to be either heated or cooled. Checking and changing these two filters are two separate jobs that should be part of your regular maintenance.
 
Let us at Fuccillo Mitsubishi inspect the condition of your Outlander cabin air filter before temperatures start to drop. While you’re here, we can take a look at your anti-freeze and other fluids too to make sure you’ll make it through winter without any mechanical missteps!
 
Fuccillo Mitsubishi recommends using genuine Mitsubishi Outlander parts, which we keep well stocked at Fuccillo Mitsubishi.

 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport - Fuccillo Mitsubishi - Adams, NY
 
 
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport earns its trim name by offering a sportier look than some of the plainer compact crossovers in the segment.  It ranks as one of the more affordable crossover utility vehicles though it offers a lot of value for the money in features and options. The Outlander Sport shows superiority in the segment with the quality and quantity of its standard equipment and its outstanding safety ratings.
 
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has a new nose design, incorporating the latest Mitsubishi styling flair. Called the "Dynamic Shield" front end, it brings the Sport closer in look to others in the Mitsubishi line. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport is by far the most popular model in Mitsubishi’s U.S. lineup - making it also a great investment for a future trade-in!
 
The Outlander Sport interior feels larger than you would expect when looking from the outside. The interior look is clean and minimalist. Soft-touch materials line the dash and for 2016 there's a new light-gray interior option.
 
Up front, the seats are comfy and supportive, in back two adults or three children can be accommodated very comfortably. The seats have nicely contoured back rests, dual cup-holders, and a fold-down padded armrest. The rear seats are easy to fold with a 60/40 split. When these are down the cargo space opens impressively – plenty of space for weekend gear, furniture or groceries. A pass-through in the rear seat is also very helpful.
 
Boarding the cabin has a nice, rather effortless feel, the vehicle level is lower than larger crossovers making it much easier for kids and older persons to board.
 
The 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has superior maneuverability, making it a great city navigator. The drive experience is more like a sedan than an CUV. It drives and corners with a light, responsive feel for efficient city driving. Out on the road, the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport shines with comfort and provides an ultra-smooth, quiet ride. The Outlander Sport delivers the best of both driving worlds.
 
Trim levels for the Outlander Sport start with the base ES, move up to the SE and SEL to the high-spec GT model.
 
Two engines are offered for 2016, along with optional all-wheel drive in both. A five-speed manual gearbox is available on the base 2.0 ES model with front-wheel drive; the other trims come with the continuously variable transmission (CVT).
 

Safety features that you won't find in many other comparable models can be found on the Outlander such as front knee airbags standard; 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.

2014-Kia-Rio

Mitsubishi Outlander

Changing your car's tire is not the only situation that you may need to jack up your vehicle although it is the most common one. You may want to do so when inspecting brakes for one. Working on the exhaust is another reason. The important thing to take note of is that if you fail to do your job properly, causing the jack to in fact slide or fall, you may end up dropping the car, resulting in serious injury to yourself.

Blocking the Wheels

You have to keep blocks of brick or wood both behind and in front of the tires to stop your car from rolling but do it only after you have positioned your car on a smooth surface and in park. If you are using metal wheel chocks, place them around the tires of the side that will not be jacked up.

If there's nothing to block the wheels from rolling, a trick is to park alongside the curb and turn in the wheels of your Mitsubishi Outlander. While it may protect other innocent pedestrians or motorists, it is still risky for you if the car gets off the jack.

Placing the Jack

It is important that you are able to direct it to the specific location under the car. The owner's manual will help you determine where the contact point - fixed to help you stay on the jack - for the respective quarter of the car is. Slide the jack underneath them and crank it up slowly until you are sure it makes contact.

Lifting the Vehicle

Once it has, continue to raise the jack until you see the tires are just off the ground. For some, you may want to take it higher to allow the jack stands to slide under the car. Place the latter near to the jack points as much as possible because they'll be solely responsible for dealing with the weight of the car once the jack is removed.

Another thing to be careful about is the type of jack (scissor or hydraulic) you use to determine how you accomplish it.

As a precautionary measure, remember to test the car's stability before you begin to work underneath it. At the Fuccillo Mitsubishi dealerships in Watertown, Adams, and Syracuse, NY, this is accomplished by shaking the car a little: if it's indeed stable, the jack stands and the wheel chocks/blocks will remain intact in their positions. You can then remove the jack and carry on with the repair work.

Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

Used Mitsubishi Outlander Sport

The steering and suspension system is one of the most important features in a vehicle, especially in your used Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. One that is running in first class condition and is the reason that you did not felt that last uneven or bumpy surface of the street and the fact that you were able to maneuver your car so well.

So, naturally when its different components break down and compromise the quality of your ride, compromise even your safety, you can manage a lot on your own with the following tips that the team over at the Faulkner Mazda dealership in Harrisburg, York, Lancaster, Hershey, Reading, or Carlisle have to offer.

The Cues, Causes, and Your Call to Action

Did you know that most problems that occur at the front end as well as the steering are due to the improper maintenance of your tires? As such, these are also the very places that the problems will affect first.

One condition that you may be facing might be loose steering. Reasons for this may include faulty shocks, loose wheel bearings, worn ball joints, and loose or worn out steering linkages. For each of these, you can respectively ask a professional mechanic for the shocks to be replaced, have the wheel bearings adjusted, and get the ball joints as well as the worn parts checked and serviced.

On the other hand, a hard steering too can turn out to be a problem for you. A low/incorrect power steering fluid, a defective power steering pump, a low/uneven tire pressure, and bent/poorly lubricated front-end parts generally cause this. These, likewise, can be taken care of properly by adding fluid as required, checking/repairing the pump, inflating the tires to correct pressure, or getting the defective parts replaced/lubricated.

A third is the vibration that you might feel through the steering wheel. A common factor is to have tire at improper pressures or out of balance. You can fix these issues by inflating and balancing them respectively whereas other reasons including loose wheel bearings and improper front-end alignment can be dealt with via readjustments as necessary.

Last but not the least is the occasion when you car may pull over to one side. This indicates that your tires have different levels of tread wear or that they are not properly aligned. Moreover, if the car does not seem to return to a smooth drive after hitting a bump, check for worn struts or shocks and even a damaged lead spring.

Mitsubishi Outlander

Snow is a regular thing in winters in many of the states. This means that you have to take care of the prospect of ever getting stuck in the snow against the harsh elements as well. An attractive SUV, many people like to take it for off-roading or a road trip to the ski resort in winters. Here is what you should be prepared to do if you get stuck, and what you should not do.

The Do's

  • Do keep a small sack of sand or kitty litter in the car when the season changes. Both of these things make for great options when it comes to getting traction on your 2015 Outlander wheels. All you have to do is pour it around the tires.
  • Do work the lower gear. This is one trick that just works.
  • Do turn your steering wheel in both sides twice or thrice. This is what assists in loosening up the tires and helps you gain traction from the friction that your tires are creating moving side to side.
  • Do try rocking the Outlander. Between forward and reverse you may be easily able to gain traction and clear out the snow. That being said, you need to be super careful as this may easily damage the vehicle's transmission if you are unable to do it right.
  • Do try to clear the snow that has piled up around the tires. Removing the snow away from the tires should be your first instinct, plus it will help if you have to spread sand or kitty litter around them.

The Don'ts

  • Don't forget to check the tailpipe. When you are caught in snow, it is important that you take a look at this. If it is wholly covered then pushing on the pedal could actually make things worse by releasing toxic gases inside the Outlander.
  • Do not force the gas. By doing this, you may actually be making it worse for the car to get out of the snow. Giving the car too much gas does not help it gain traction. What you need to do is take it slow so that you may be able to dig the car out of the snow faster.
  • Don't leave the wheels turned when you are ready to get out of the snow, it is important that you ensure that the wheels are straightened.
  • Don't spin the tires. You may think this is one way rolling yourself out of the mess when in fact you are really creating more space for your car to sink in.

And there you go the tips that will help you get out of being stuck in the snow; though it is unlikely to happen with the 2015 Outlander but it is always good to be safe than sorry. If you are near Syracuse, Watertown or Adams take out one of the 2015 Outlanders for a test drive at Fuccillo Mitsubishi.
