Re: Replace Transmission

I wonder if they checked the fault code before or after changing the fluid. It's a bit rich of them to charge $1100 for something they say needs replacing asap for $15,000. They should be able to provide an itemised bill and you can see what cost that money, whether it was excessive fluid value or l...

Re: Regular oil changes

You can only get a year or 10k/15k service intervals with fully synthetic oil. A cheap mineral oil won't do. Sure, fully synthetic costs more (Penrite HPR 5 is a good balance of quality and price), but since the service interval is greater and is much better for the engine it's actually cheaper.

Re: Pollen Filter Replacement

$20 still isn't bad. I'm not sure how good those really cheap ones are, whether they're actually activated carbon, just normal carbon, or coloured paper. Also the filter micron may be greater (filters less fibre particles). At least getting a branded one like the one I mentioned or Sakura you'd hope...

Re: Pollen Filter Replacement

I preferred to buy mine posted from an Australia, and by an Australian company (obviously made in China or elsewhere). Postage times from overseas can be hit and miss.

Re: Pollen Filter Replacement

What cabin filters do people prefer? Last two filters I've used are the activated carbon one from Micro Filters Australia (CF182C). The one I recently bought was advertised as Wesfil, but got the equivalent Micro Filters One. For $15 delivered can't complain. On a side note, not sure how good Aerofl...

Re: Proximity Key Boot Issue?

The boot button is designed to be pressed twice to avoid accidental opening. You just press it quickly twice, no hassle :D. As for the other buttons, if your key has the light check the brightness. You may see it isn't fully bright the first time pressed. Electrical contact spray (get a decent quali...

Re: Which service should I get?

Why do you need the TOG filter, I guess you have the stock one currently? Keep in mind the 2013? onwards 4B11 engines have a different air filter box and you need a different filter. These dams engines also don't require the power steering flush as it's now electric. It lists timing belt under the 1...

Re: ABS MODULE RECALL PETITION

The time issue depends on whether it's a design flaw, or whether it is a wear and tear issue. After such time pretty much all things s can be related to the latter. If there's an incident and it's found to be a design flaw, then they may be required to resolve it to prevent future incidences. This a...

Re: CVT is sh*t

The CVT in the Pathfinder is quite heavy duty considering. Car has 202 kW and 340 nm torque, abs a towing capacity of 2700 kg. Not overly impressive typically, but shows what a heavier duty one can do. Despite the x-tronic branding it's still Jatco.

Re: CVT is sh*t

The Nissan CVTs are particularly bad. I know someone who had the new Pulsar (now gone) and within 2 years the CVT shit its self, luckily covered by the warranty, still they were without their new car for almost 2 months! The Lancer and other Mitsubishi CVT's are the same as used in Nissan. Mitsubis...

Re: CVT is sh*t

The CVT needs to be matched to the right engine and vehicle. A low powered engine means the CVT needs to be in a lower ratio for the same effect. I suspect a 140 kW engine with say, 250 NM of torque would be ideal for the vehicle weight. There are heavier duty versions of the CVT like used in the ne...

Re: Anyone in Victoria available for a tyre experiment?

If the sidewalls are soft it would absorb more noise than the same tyre with stiffer walls, at least you'd presume. However, there would also possibly be more lateral movement. I'd guess it's the tyres. Keep in mind the 215/60 R16 will fit and the extra 5 percent width may help. Also they are cheape...

Re: NEW LANCER-Eclipse Cross

Since platforms are kind of modular (Lancer/ASX etc), no reason why they couldn't do one. The issue is sales, but that's only because they end up diverging the products too much like the updates on the ASX not transferred to the Lancer. Even if the parts are slightly cheaper logistics of parts makes...

Re: Timing Chain Pre-Tensioner Recall

The recalls were issued today. Just curious, when they do they mail out, is it Mitsubishi relying on vehicle registration information, or is it based on purchase information whereby if you move it will be sent to your old address?

Re: Lancer "gone by end of 2018"

They should have made a car half way between the size of the Lancer and ASX, and having it modernised of course.
