b) Poor marketing/brand recall - How many people are aware of a Mitsu car called cedia as opposed to city/civic/verna etc..How many are aware there is an ALPG variant in cedia which should be great VFM?
c) HM!! - Less said the better!!
But you are right. Diesel Cedia could have been a killer.
Right, they thought they had a product that could give corolla/ civic a fight. But they should have reverted back as soon as they realised that it could not stand ground. Maybe they should have given it a better name- LANCER-2 , or something , which would have worked better on peoples minds.

It's sad to see such a company losing money in a big market like North America.
Yes, mitsubishi has been at helm of some great techonologies of today, but has lost pace now, sad!
