    Try holding the accelerator pedal to the floor and then press the start button.

    This is covered under the Roadside Assistance warranty. Details can be found in the Warranty Manual in your glovebox, or download a copy from Mitsubishi.

    ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE

    ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE FOR 5 YEARS/UNLIMITED MILEAGE
    Should you ever need it, you have access to 24-hour emergency roadside assistance for 5 full years from the date of the original retail delivery or original use, whichever is earlier, regardless of mileage. Covered services include towing, jump starts, flat tire service, emergency fuel and fluid delivery, and much more.

    CALL-> 1-888-648-7820

    Please have your 17-character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) available when you call.

    You are covered for:
    • Towing to the nearest Mitsubishi Motors Dealer or other approved service point from the point of disablement if your Vehicle is not drivable (Please retain all towing receipts.)
    • Jump-starts in the event of a dead battery
    • Exchange of a flat tire with your inflated spare
    • Emergency fuel and fluid delivery
    • Lockout assistance to gain entry into your Vehicle
    • Mechanical “first aid” for minor roadside repairs or adjustments

    TOWING-AFTER EXPIRATION OF 5 YEARS/UNLIMITED MILEAGE ROAD ASSISTANCE

    CALL-> 1-888-648-7820
    Please have your 17-character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) available when you call.
    Should your Vehicle become inoperable due to a warrantable failure after the expiration of 5 years/Unlimited mileage roadside service, MMNA will arrange for the Vehicle to be towed to the nearest Mitsubishi Motors Dealer or other approved service point.
    Please retain all towing receipts; you will be reimbursed for towing expenses if it is determined that the Vehicle became inoperable due to a warrantable failure.

    NOTE:
    • These programs are benefits provided to you at no charge as part of the purchase of your Vehicle. Generally, there is no charge for any of the Roadside Assistance services listed for the five full years, without regard to mileage. However, you will be responsible for the cost of non-warrantable parts, lost-key replacement, and non-warrantable tire repair.
    • These programs are NOT a warranty and are subject to change without notice. MMNA reserves the right to limit and/or change available services.
    • Roadside Assistance excludes winching of Vehicle off road, Vehicle disabled in rally, racing or other competitive events, and Vehicle used for commercial purposes such as police, taxi, route delivery, livery, or daily rental services.
    • ALL TOWING services are only one-way from the point of disablement to the nearest Mitsubishi Motors Dealer or other approved service point; you are responsible to pick up your Vehicle from the Mitsubishi Motors Dealer or approved service point after it has been repaired.
    So, what was found to be the problem?

    It's certainly covered at <12,000 miles. Don't panic.
    Use roadside assistance to get it to dealer shop. This creates paper and money trail which kick starts an ASAP resolution because it costs Mitsu money.

    Quick question.. Does it chug or make puffs of exhaust out the tail pipe when you try to start it or does it seem like the engine is not trying at all?
    Will weld for beer.

    Try to start it again. The first thing most tow truck drivers will do in this situation is try to start it.

    You may want to just see if it happens again. This has happened to a couple of people before. Holding the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking the engine seems to solve it on the rare occasions that it happens.

    Even though the car is under warranty, they may not look at it for free...especially if they can't duplicate the condition. I'd hate to see you drop $100 just to have the service manager tell you they couldn't find anything wrong.
