MPG Is Top When Buying a New Car

Even though we’ve seen a drop in gas prices around Pittsburgh and Western PA over the past couple of months, new car buyers still want fuel-efficient cars, according to J.D. Power and Associates’ 2015 Avoider Study. This study, which monitors the reasons consumers buy or do not buy vehicles, claims MPG is the top factor in new vehicle purchases for the fourth year in a row.

Consumers are “going to own these vehicles for many, many years. They want [mileage] to remain low during their ownership period,” research director Jon Osborn told Automotive News.

To reach these findings, the 12th annual Avoider Study surveyed almost 30,000 new car owners. Among buyers of compact, small, and midsize cars, 14 percent said that gas mileage was the most influential reason for choosing the vehicle they ended up purchasing. Similarly, 16 percent of shoppers rejected a vehicle in favor of a more fuel-efficient model.

And with an outstanding line of fuel-efficient cars, Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi is the place in Western PA to buy a new car. From the 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage with an impressive, best-in-class 43 MPG to the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer with a cool 34 MPG, these cars will save you tons at the pump. If you’re looking for a larger vehicle, don’t forget about the Mitsubishi Outlander with an outstanding 31 MPG and the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport with a sweet 30 MPG.

Why the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart Could Be the Most Difficult Car to Get Your Hands On in 2015

Some things come and some things go. And the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart seems to be one of those things that will go. Mitsubishi recently announced the Lancer Ralliart production starts next month and will end in December 2014. That’s a very short window of only 4 months, and production numbers of the performance model will be very limited—forcing interested parties to act quick when the time comes.

Additionally, the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart comes with seven new standard features both inside and out for the new model year but, as we mentioned before, they won’t be around long. It also comes with new pricing that bumps the cost up $1,100 over the outgoing model. Mitsubishi will keep the cost under the $30,000 mark and prices the 2015 Ralliart at $29,495 without destination/handling.

A Look Back at Our Transformation from Suzuki to Mitsubishi

As you probably know, our Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi store used to be Jim Shorkey Suzuki. However, Suzuki stopped selling their cars here in the US, so we improvised and became the dealership that we are today.

We sold our new Suzuki stock months and months ago, and have been replacing all of the signs around the dealership from “Suzuki” to “Mitsubishi” ever since. Take a look at this transition in a few snapshots!

Mitsubishi Lancer: Sporty AND Safe

The Lancer is one of Mitsubishi’s most popular vehicles. Traditionally, it’s thought of as a sporty, compact vehicle, but this perception is about to change.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently named this affordably priced and fun-to-drive vehicle an official IIHS “Top Safety Pick” for both the 2014 and 2015 models.

The Lancer joins the ranks of Mitsubishi’s outstanding crossover/SUV offerings in the stylish 5-passenger Outlander Sport and the 7-passenger Outlander as Mitsubishi vehicles rated as a “Top Safety Pick” or higher.

The exceptionally well-engineered Lancer—thanks in part to Mitsubishi Motor’s patented Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) body/chassis safety cell construction system—made the grade by passing a very stringent crash test.

In a press release, Don Swearingen, Executive Vice President of Mitsubishi Motors North America said, “It’s truly gratifying to see our very popular Mitsubishi Lancer once again named a “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The Lancer is a very versatile compact sports sedan that has it all—exceptional safety, excellent fuel economy, sporty performance, and plentiful standard features—and at a price to fit almost any budget.”
