Mind Your Nooks And Crannies: Tips For Detailing Your Vehicle

It’s not always fun to clean your car but not everyone likes a messy car so keep these tips in mind when detailing your car.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Nowhere is that more true than when it comes to detailing your vehicle. If you are going to go through the trouble of wheeling your vacuum cleaner all the way out to the driveway, give your interior a run for its money! Here are some tips for detailing your vehicle thoroughly and successfully!

Consumer Reports brilliantly suggests working from the top down. This means starting with your top of your dash, using a housecleaner and a rag, being sure to spray the rag and not the dash (just for risk you’ll get it all over the windshield and windows, although you should be cleaning those as well). Once the dash-area is completely free of debris, you can use a moisturizer/polish.

When it comes to vacuuming, make sure you have some handy attachments. If you don’t, or they’ve been lost, it’s worth getting replacements. Remove floor mats and clean under them. If you are not going to go full bore and steam clean your cloth upholstery, they do make spray-on upholstery cleaner.

The most important thing to remember when cleaning your interior is to clean all of the nooks and crannies and other easily overlooked spots. That means, clean behind door handles and under the seats. Wipe down seat-belt buckles. Use a q-tip to get the really tight spots, like where your stereo or infotainment is.

It’s awfully difficult to impress a date when you’ve got a moldy slice of tomato (from that one time they put tomato on your burger even though you expressly told them not to) in between your gear shifter and your seat. Mind your nooks and crannies!

While you’re cleaning up your Mitsubishi, think about bringing it on over to Randall Mitsubishi for a spring service tune-up afterwards!

With a redesigned front and rear fascia, the L200 features an interior that features DAB radio and dual-zone climate control. The Mitsubishi L200 also offers passengers keyless entry, a rear view camera, and added safety features that include lane departure warning and hill start assist.

The updated L200 also boasts powertrain improvements, offering a 2.4-liter diesel engine with a two-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive option. The European truck stands ahead of its competitors in regards to fuel efficiency with a 42mpg rating and four-ton carrying capacity. Due to the success of the company’s Outlander PHEV model, Mitsubishi has hinted that a hybrid option for the L200 might be forthcoming.

2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV

2016 Mitsubishi i-MiEV will have better technology at a more affordable price coming this month

Mitsubishi is bringing a more affordable and better-equipped i-MiEV to America this month.

Available for an MSRP of $23,995 minus a federally sponsored tax credit, this electric Mitsubishi can be driven for $15,495, which is the lowest price of any EV on the market. The I-MiEV represents high value with standard features like heated driver and passenger seats, heated mirrors, and remote keyless entry.

However, the 2016 i-MiEV’s technology is what really makes the super-efficient electric vehicle desirable. It is powered by an electric motor capable of 49 kW (66hp) mated to a single-speed transmission that delivers uniform torque throughout the entire rpm range. For safety, an Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBF), Brake Assist (BA), and stability and traction controls help keep the i-MiEV on the road and driving clear of traffic.

Its 16 kWh lithium-ion batteries are mounted low on the vehicle, providing a total range of 62 clean miles. Charging is fast and easy with its DC rapid charger that can amp up to 80% capacity in just 30 minutes.

Make your next stop Randall Mitsubishi to see the arrival of this affordable EV and check out the whole array of Mitsubishi cars and trucks.

The 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage is as environmentally-friendly as any hybrid vehicle.

The new Mirage is earning all sorts of awards, including recognition from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The 2015 Mirage was recently named to the ACEEE “Greenest Vehicles” List thanks to its innovative eco-friendly design.

According to Mitsubishi, the 2015 Mirage fuel efficiency is the major reason for this recognition. The new model gets an incredible 44 highway mpg, the highest economy for a non-hybrid vehicle in the US. On top of that, the Mirage also comes with an array of extensive warranties to ensure you have no problem keeping your Mirage for a long time.

“We are pleased to see our 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage named to the ACEEE’s ‘Greenest Vehicles’ list, and we look forward to launching more new innovative and affordably-priced environmentally-friendly vehicles in the future,” said Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President of MMNA. “With its low price, plentiful features, exceptional fuel economy and extensive warranty, the Mitsubishi Mirage offers automotive consumers an unprecedented new-car value.”

ACEEE judges cars based on lifecycle greenhouse gas and emissions. That means the Mirage puts fewer toxic fumes in the atmosphere than most other cars on the road. What’s not to like about the new model? Visit Randall Mitsubishi to learn more about the 2015 Mirage.
