Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts

Valentine's Day Gifts

You want Valentine’s Day to feel special for your loved one. But maybe you’re on a budget, or maybe you feel like you’re out of good gift ideas. Don’t worry—this list of unique Valentine’s Day gifts will help you think of a way to shower your significant other with affection.

Cooking Classes

A cozy dinner for two is one thing, but cooking your own dinner together? That’s something that you can turn into a regular and affordable date night option. What could be more romantic than sharing kitchen space with your partner while concocting scrumptious food?

Antique Jewelry

Instead of stopping by the regular old jewelry store where you can drop big bucks on something that might not stand out, opt for a trip to the nearest antique mall. Here you can find something that’s truly unique, and probably more affordable, than the cliché of Valentine’s Day jewelry.

The Gift of Travel

Road trips bring couples closer in a unique way, and are enhanced by the comfort and security of a quality car. Consider investing in a Mitsubishi Outlander from Randall Mitsubishi with the long-term intention of taking more trips together in the future. For an extra touch, plan a few getaways that you can both look forward to.

How to Beat the Winter Blues

beat the winter blue

Each year millions of Americans suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is a type of depression that is most common during the winter. This is often called the winter blues and is caused by colder temperatures and a lack of sunlight. If you are feeling a bit melancholy now that the holidays are over, here are three ways to regain a positive perspective.

  1. Brighten up your life. If you miss the illumination of the holiday lights, go ahead and leave some up. Add some strings of lights to your home decorations or your work cubicle. You can also try wearing brighter colors.
  2. Have fun. One good way to lift your spirits is to have some fun. Winter is a perfect time to head outdoors here in Texas. Go for a hike, visit the zoo, or visit any other favorite spot that you would normally visit during warmer temperatures.
  3. Make some plans. Start anticipating warmer weather by planning where you want to go and what you want to do when the weather shifts. Looking forward to something will help you to feel more excited about waking up each morning.

If you are feeling down, visit us at Randall Mitsubishi; we’re sure that a test drive in an exciting new Mitsubishi model will elevate your mood.

Mitsubishi Outlander IIHS top safety pick rating

We all want a vehicle that will help keep us safe. That is why each year the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) tests new vehicles to determine their crashworthiness and other safety factors. Recently, the IIHS tested the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander’s protective features and awarded it with a Top Safety Pick rating.

This is the fifth year in a row the Outlander has achieved this rating thanks to its superb performance during crash tests as well as its advanced technology. It earned the top “good” rating in all crash tests, a “superior” rating for front crash prevention, and an “acceptable” rating for its innovative headlight option.

“Thanks to our advanced safety features and technology, the Mitsubishi Outlander continues to achieve IIHS safety ratings for the fifth consecutive year,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America. “The Outlander remains a leader in reliability and dependability, and we are proud to receive this recognition by one of the most reputable organizations in the industry.”

Great Gifts for Car Lovers

Gifts for Car Lovers

Buying a gift for the car lover in your life can be tricky, when there’s such a profusion of auto-related merchandise on the market. We’ve put together some great ideas for gifts for car lovers that will help you pick the perfect present.

Car accessories are an important part of a gearhead’s life. They make driving more convenient and comfortable and add a touch of style to the car. One practical gift is a cell phone holder they can attach to the dashboard, which lets them use their phone’s GPS or music streaming apps more safely.

If your car loving friend is also a dog lover, consider a seat protector that will help protect their upholstery from fur when their dog joins them on trips.

Sometimes car aficionados are also photographers. If you want to splurge a little, try a dashboard camera for your adventurous friend.

You might also want to think about what tools your car enthusiast needs. You can go for a complete tool set or a cleaning and waxing kit.  Another suggestion is to get them an air impact wrench or an air compressor.

These are just a few ideas for what to get a car fan for Christmas, so check out more here, or give us a call at Randall Mitsubishi!

The Mirage topped several categories.

Over the years, Mitsubishi has established itself as one of the premier automakers on the market. With its reliability, innovation, and excellent customer service, the reputation is well-deserved. Although it’s still early in the year, Mitsubishi has already won several prestigious awards.

The economic section looks at each vehicle’s cost of ownership while the all-around performance section takes into account everything from environmental and economic impact to the social impact of manufacturing the vehicles.

After careful review, Mitsubishi was the winner in the following categories:

Use Your Tax Refund To Save Big at Randall Mitsubishi on a New Car

tax refund at Randall Mitsubishi

Most Americans that file their taxes will receive some sort of refund. For some Americans, this refund will be thousands of dollars. If you’re getting a sizable return this year, you can spend your tax refund at Randall Mitsubishi. This is a great, easy way to get a down payment in a lump sum.

Industry experts recommend a down payment for a new car to be at least 10%. If your tax refund is $2,000 or more, you could easily have more than you need. With a larger down payment, you won’t need to finance as much of your car purchase. This means your monthly payments will be lower and you could potentially get a lower interest rate.

If you don’t want to buy a brand new car, you could also use your refund towards a great used car. Here at Randall Mitsubishi, we have a great inventory of affordable, quality pre-owned cars.

A third option for using your refund could be doing some serious maintenance or upgrades on your current car. If you’ve been putting off expensive repairs, use your refund to get your car in tip-top shape. Get a new set of tires, get your car detailed, get a major tune-up, or whatever it is you need to rekindle your love for your car. Schedule a service appointment at Randall Mitsubishi today.

All-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross Unveiled in Geneva

From 1990 through 2012, the Mitsubishi Eclipse was a beloved sports coupe and convertible that helped build-up the Mitsubishi name for performance. That model may be gone, but its name is making a comeback. The 2018 Eclipse Cross, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, is not a sporty coupe, but a compact crossover.

2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross, unveiled

Size-wise, this new model will fit between the current Outlander and Outlander Sport. It shares the same platform as the other two and will be 173.4 inches long. Mitsubishi says that the next updates for the other two models will make them larger and smaller, respectively.

The Eclipse Cross comes with sophisticated styling inside and out. It will be powered by a new turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. Power ratings haven’t been released yet; however, Mitsubishi says it will be more powerful than the current Outlander, which makes 166 horsepower with its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine.

Inside, passengers will find modern features, including a sophisticated touchscreen system. Available technology includes a head-up display, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross will be coming to Randall Mitsubishi in early 2018. We’re excited to see this all-new addition sitting on our showroom floor and can’t wait to see how it performs on the road.

Safety First 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Features Keep You in Control

2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport Features

There is simply no other SUV on the road like the powerful, fuel-efficient, and spacious new Mitsubishi Outlander Sport. A rearview camera, Active Stability Control System, and one of the industry’s best warranties are just a few of the many features on the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport that elevate it above its competitors.

 

Rearview Camera

Once you drive with a rearview camera, you will wonder how you ever survived without it. This camera activates as soon as you shift into reverse, making it safe and easy to back down driveways, pull out of a parking spot, and much more.

 

Active Stability Control

The Active Stability Control system utilizes sensors to decrease your likelihood of slipping or losing contact with the road in any way; it monitors the grip of each tire and if one of your wheels begins to slip, the system enacts the Anti-lock Braking System.

 

Excellent Warranty

Finally, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong and the vehicle fails in almost anyway, you will be covered by a top-notch warranty that has your back for either 10 years or 10,000 miles, whichever comes first.

 

If you would like to learn more about any of these features, or perhaps even check out the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in person, stop by and visit us any time, at Randall Mitsubishi.
