Mitsubishi just closed the local plant that was here for almost 30 years. After the 0 down, 0% interest and 0 payment for the first 2 years deal they ran in 2000 that bit them in the ass after customers just started turning their 2 year old cars back in the company just started a nose dive that they have never been able to pull out of.
The local Mitsubishi dealer that I started working for in 1988 is the largest selling dealer in the United States, not saying much at about 40-50 new Mitsubishis a month.
I would dare to say within a year that Mitsubishi will completely pull out of North America.
That always struck me as the craziest S in the world. I put myself in the buyers seat..... I drive a car every day for two years, now it's got some scratches, it doesn't smell quite brand new, maybe I haven't changed the oil as often as I can, etc etc and the NEW CAR!!! feel is totally gone. Now you want me to start paying for the fng thing?!?!?!?!? How depressing is it to start making new car sized payments on a used car that will be paid off after 7 -8 years of ownership. You'd be in the hole until the thing was worth $1,500. So you can finally sell it and start that all over or something? rant rant rant.
I know you work for a dealer Chris, is it that Mitsubishi dealer still?
