    I know more than one person in this situation. CVT is acting up occasionally, but dealer is "unable to duplicate customer concern" and kicks it down the road until it happens again. One is a Nissan, the other a Subaru (both Jatco units). The only thing going for these people is that both have an extended warranty.

    They also (unfortunately) replaced all the brakes and charged close to $2000 for new pads,shoes, rotors and drums.
    Holy *!#$...was that a mistake by the person that dropped off the car?

    Wow, & are you getting the old parts back to inspect?? I took the wifes car to the local place for an oil change today & they told me the air cleaner was blocked solid. I said "Show me". When they took the filter out , I held the filter to the sun & asked them to explain how light shines thru a blocked air filter, & they told me "Everyone replaces parts by the schedule". Maybe this is what happened to you??? Did they not call for authorization to do the brakes??

    It was in a different city, person who gave the go ahead probably won't next time without asking a grown up especially since were kinda in the parts business. I wouldn't be surprised if we sold the dealer some of the parts and we bought them back for 10x if they were out of their own stock, just to really stick it in there and twist it

    They also (unfortunately) replaced all the brakes and charged close to $2000 for new pads,shoes, rotors and drums. Figured I'd share this so nobody ever takes there car in to the dealer for brake work. The most expensive part was the rear drums at over $300 a side.
    Wow crazy expensive. That's the only thing I dont like about the mirage. Really hoping for aftermarket options

    Given the volume of cars your company purchased, you would think a Mitsubishi dealership would go above & beyond in providing your company with excellent service. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case.

    If I had one major criticism of Mitsubishi in general, it would be the leadership of the entire company. This is not a company that has their act together. Dealerships are all over the place on how they do business. I found shopping for a car to be way harder than it needed to be. Many Mitsubishi dealerships are an add on business for larger dealerships that sell several different brands. As long as you buy a car from them, they could care less what brand it is.

    I want Mitsubishi to be successful, and they are growing. Having said that, they have lots of room for improvement.

    Your local Mitsubishi dealership should be bending over backwards for you. Instead, they seem more interested in making a quick buck!
