Mitsubishi Heavy industries would very much influence design aspects of our cars including electronics and AC. Mitsubishi is the biggest keiretsu in Japan, each division has a financial share or stake in the other, hence they share everything, including technology. As per Wikipedia:
"The member's companies own portions of the shares in each other's companies, centered on a core bank; this system helps insulate each company from stock market fluctuations and takeover attempts, thus enabling long-term planning in projects. It is a key element of the manufacturing industry in Japan."
If only there was data posted online of stuff like this! Comparing reliability of same parts in different manufacturers. Why isnt there data on the number of Nissans that hit 200k miles with Jatco CVTs? Why isnt there data about the average length of time a Mitsubishi designed compressor lasts? Repairpal and other sites like it claim they have concise data when in actuality it seems so generalistic to me. Jatco, on their website, says nothing about longevity! Nothing! Only how many units its sold. That's bull****.
Expecting JATCO to publicly publish CVT longevity data is like expecting McDonalds/Burger King to publish known health effects of consuming their food. Not gonna happen. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a sudden craving for some fries...
