Choosing the Right Mitsubishi


With so many vehicle options out there, buying a new car, SUV, or crossover can seem extremely overwhelming. Luckily, the team at Michaud Mitsubishi is here to help. Keep reading to find out how to choose the right Mitsubishi for you.

Consider Your Budget

All of our new and pre-owned Mitsubishi’s start out at great prices, but it’s important to have an idea of a budget when you come in to find your next vehicle. Don’t only think about the vehicle price tag, however, make sure you consider fuel, insurance, registration, maintenance, and any other costs you might overlook. We also have an easy-to-use monthly payment tool to help you figure out your budget. If you’re worried about obtaining an auto loan, don’t stress—our finance team can help! We stand by our motto of “feel good financing” and want you to have a painless experience.

Think About Your Needs

Once you’ve established a budget, it’s time to think about your needs. This will help you narrow down the vehicle model. Here are a couple of things to contemplate:

  • Gear: Do you have certain hobbies that require equipment? Are you always working on home improvement projects? Make sure the vehicle you’re interested in will fit anything you want to tote around.
  • Location: What area do you live in or commute to? If you’re in the suburbs, a larger crossover or SUV might be no big deal, but in the city you might want something smaller for squeezing into street parking spaces.
  • Passengers: How many people will you regularly shuttle around? If it’s pretty rare for you to need a third row of seats but you want more cargo room, opt for something like the Outlander Sport. If you have a large family and need the extra space, the Outlander might be the better option.

Plan for the Future

This tip ties into thinking about your needs. While it’s sometimes hard to plan for the future, it can save you a lot of money if you do. Maybe you’ll be expanding your family in the next few years, or maybe you plan to move to the city and should downsize to a sedan in preparation. Whatever your situation may be, take it into consideration when buying a new car. This is a big purchase, so you’ll want something that will last you a good amount of time.
