Default Mitsubishi going down the tubes!

Whenever a company is selling part of its Head Office to finance the liquid requirements, you know that the situation is SERIOUS!!

Quality is down, they dont have a good future product range, no liquid money (No R&D) and Daimler is not pumping any more fuel into Mitsubishi.

They themselves are to be blamed for it. All i can say about HM-Mitsu is "No Imagination".

First they give us the Lancer 1.5 with a good handling package but lacking in outright grunt.

Just when everyone thought that they'd improved, with the launch of the Lancer Invex, they messed it all up by giving it an A/T with a "4 speed"!!!

How can you give a car a tyre profile of 80 and expect it to handle better? They didn't even bother changing the interiors, it still has that plasticy feel.

Why don't they launch a Turbo Charged 1.8 like Skoda did. Give it 205/55 R15's, stiffen the suspension, make it lighter, ABS and TCS, better interiors etc.

Oh no not Mitsubishi too!!! When the automobile fans are still reeling under the bad news about fiat's finances and its future in India, this is the last thing we need.
