A CVT and also a paddle shift? I am a bit confused. Isn't CVT soppose to "continously vary the ratio" (read invariable number of combination) as oppose to "shift a gear". is this something different?

A nice buy. Have not seen many on road though at least in Pune. Congratulations

onboard computer and the software mimics fixed ratios (6), when you downshift, computer lets the ECU to simply move to higher revs. It can hold the ervs to near red line before it will automatically upshift.

advantages are: you get smooth gear shifts and increased fuel economy.

congratulations on your buy sknair. i saw an outlander in the showroom and i think its fabulous car, infact i am interested in purchasing a new car and its in my list of cars to buy, however i am not too sure of the HM Mitsubishi service in Mumbai and that is what is putting me off the Outlander, will maybe adopt a wait and watch approach as i only want to purchase after a month or two. any ideas of the HM service and your experience if any ?

@ M00M : When HM-Mitsubishi were at Metro Motors, Opera House, their service was pretty good. My Lancer went to them through 1.0 lakh kms of its life, and I was generally satisfied with their quality of work. Now, they've leased that property out to Mercedes and moved to Atria Mall. Check if its still company owned (that is, by HM). If so, I wouldn't have any concerns at all.

Thanks GTO. however i went to the dealer and asked him and he said they have a temporary service station at andheri and are soon moving to cotton green. By the way Metro Motors is owned by Auto Hangar so they decided to move it out and bring Mercedes in due to South Mumbai location. I am also concerned now since HM has filed for help under bankruptcy. I really liked the car but bad aftersales and unconcerned attitude of sales staff put me off. what are your views ? I love the crv but its not overpriced.

I was at the service station here in Delhi last week for my Cedia's first service. While generally chatting with the GM works he mentioned that three new outlets were coming up in and around Delhi. One in Okhla, one in Gurgaon and yet another one in Ghaziabad. Further the showroom in Bombay shifted to Atria mall which is also a high street address.They did it a little over an year ago when the company was already in the Red. It shows that the company is going ahead with its plans to bolster its brand. Infact the head mechanic from the service station that I went to, was travelling to Chennai to compete in an intra HM-Mitsu dealership national level skill championships.

It is normal procedure that companies becoming sick, report to BIFR. They use the exercise to restructure their debts and other liabilities, renegotiate with creditors and generally with the help of FIs make a go of standing on their own two feet again. Usually they come out of it in some span of time. Further with the Birla group owning HM, I do not think they are going to allow themselves to become the talk of the town for all the wrong reasons by having one of their companies fold up. That they might sell their stake to Mitsubishi Motor Company and exit all together is another possibility and one that is construed to be a positive move by many a member on the forum.

@MOOM If it helps HM-MITSU have two more service centres at Malad and Sanpada(New Bombay).

Congrts on your buy. Very good looking SUV. Saw a black one few months back in a fuel bunk. First reaction - Wow! 2nd reaction - what vehicle is this. baby Porche Cayene / Audi / sport cars with a hatch ? Then saw the red Mitsubishi logo in the black grill. Wow again! 3rd reaction - must be imported - Damn! Only few days back came to know its sold here

Keep us posted!

Superrrb. Drove down from Mumbai to Jodhpur with an overnight halt and came back after 3 days. Pretty comfortable for self and family. I do miss the lumbar support though.

Tried the dunes... nice experience walks easy with 4x4 and lock.

cheers

Default Long Term ownership views!

Hello All the Outlander owners.

Pls provide your take on Outlander as the primary car which a close friend and BIL is thinking of buying pre owned. He is about to finalise deal for 2010 facelift with jet fighter grill.
What are the long term ownership hassles in particular the ownership of a Mitsubishi high end car in India.
Service - A.S.S. or independent garage? Approximate damages per year on routine maintenance.

Also anything to be checked in particular post 50000 Km on odo. He believe it would deliver some 7-8 kmpl in no so dense traffic roads at his place in kokan coast.

Any niggles to look for.

Pls reply. Also grateful for rough guide on reasonable price for 2010 facelift outlander with 55k on odo.
Tried posting this in used car price check thread but no rplies hence thought of posting here as well. Hope mods won't mind.
