I love this car

published

Best car I’ve ever driven. Handles like a small car but has some real guts to it. The black mirrors and alloys look great especially on starlight colour, goes well on fuel

Perfect for my lifestyle

published

Spacious, no mechanical issues. Have had mine for almost 3 years and I absolutely love it. Small enough to park, but large enough inside to fit 5 people comfortably. Also, very good value for money

Purchased in June 2017 at Mitsubishi Dealers for $18,500.00.

Perfect car for my medium sized family, easily fits in 4 comfortably. The back cargo area is very roomy and when you fold the back seats flat it is massive! Great fuel economy

Perfect for my family

published

I love my asx ! Mines a 2018 model This is a great car for running around, I have 3 girls and with school and sport and weekend outing I can’t fault our car. We have never had a issue it’s 100% reliable and the fuel economy that I get is second to none. It may not be a 4wd but it is big enough for a pram and a boot full of shopping and a baby seat plus two older children fit comfortably with plenty of room still.

Purchased in June 2018 at McGrath Mitsubishi Liverpool for $23.99.

Great Decision

published

Have had really bad luck buying cars lately, having bought an MG ZS 12 months ago that ended up being biggest mistake (but that’s another story) with the money from the buy back I decided to purchase a Mitsubishi ASX LS, must say wish I had done this March last year and saved myself the heartache. The car is a great for running my errands, going to classes and it handles very well, so far fuel economy is good, the car is comfortable, love the fact that my son who is an Android user, he can borrow my car and plug in he’s phone and use it and more daughter who is an iPhone user can use it as well.

I live that I have a 3 year capped service fee. So far this car has been the best decision I have made in a motor vehicle purchase

Excellent car

published

The car is a 2.2ltr turbo diesel. I have sold the car to my step daughter, she loves it. I did 170,000km and was trouble free. It is fully optioned with moon roof, leather seats e.t.c. The engine has a lot of torque and is great driving around hills and mountains. The fuel economy is great.
It's easy to park and manoeuvre because of its size. Folding down the rear seats turns it into a wagon and has a lot of room.
The only thing that annoyed me was the turbo lag from stop to go.
I definitely recommend this car in the diesel if doing the k's.

Strange sound when I take my foot off the accelerator

published

A couple of months ago I went into the dealership to have my break pads changed (recall), not long after that my car started making a strange sound like it’s got a flat tyre when I take my foot off the accelerator and then disappears when I accelerate. I regularly pump my tyres up or so I know it’s not a flat tyre.. it sounds like it’s coming from the engine.

Love this car but have big issues with back passenger seat belts, the anchor is much too short, maki

published

Family transport, short trips most days, serviced when needed.
Issue is with the back passengers seat belts, very very hard to click in as anchor is much too short.
Very happy with how it drives and economical ! Find it easy to get in and out of, good for people with bad backs.

So happy I purchased it

published

I use my car for commuting to work and I use it daily. I get it serviced at the recommended service time and I haven't had any mechanical issues with the car. The features are great and I couldn't live without the reversing camera now. The handsfree bluetooth is a bonus. Its a smooth ride and I use the boot for my parents wheelchair which fits nicely in the back. Its also a good height for my elderly parents to get into my last sedan was to low. Great car Thanks Mitsubishi.

Great car... just one little but though.

published

It's a fantastic fuel efficient car with an ultra smooth ride. I only have one negative... Upon entering the car, in let's say eg., underground car park, the gear console doesn't stay lit up for very long before returning to complete darkness. I don't find it an issue when selecting Drive, as that's a direct downward position, but Reverse (for me) isn't so easy to find, therefore I must switch on at least my parking lights so the console lights up. Hope this makes some sense

Questions & Answers

Robs R.asked

Hi, I own a 2019 ASX LS. I am hearing and reading online that there may be a way of activating the auto door lock/unlock feature using the gear selector (eg. in gear = doors lock, in park = doors unlock)
Is this possible ? And if so, how do I go about getting it activated??

6 answers
Andrew
Andrew

Only the drivers side door will unlock if auto lock is on when the car is in park...for safety reasons..As children could open doors into on coming traffic!!...As far as I’m aware of??..I do know how to bypass music turning off when you turn the engine off...This can be done by having music on with engine started in park..Place the car into neutral and turn engine stop button...Then place into Park..music will stay on...hope that can help you out with some “beats”..cheers

Mmmmm, thanks. I’ve been driving Fords, Holdens and Hyundai’s at work for years and years. They’ve all had this option for a long time. I find it strange that a 2019 model car wouldn’t have it available??

As for kids opening into traffic, isn’t that what the child locks are for???

Thanks for answering though

Andrew
Andrew

My doors automatically open if child locks ARENT turned on when in park !!
Maybe have dealer to check your vehicle??

Ros

Rosasked

My ASX is 2000 kms overdue for the 15000 service. Would this be why I am hearing a very persistant beeping sound every 10 seconds? No warning lights and nothing appears to be wrong with the car.
I have it booked in for a service in 2 days time. (Very hard to get a service booked over the Christmas period which is understandable.) Meanwhile this is driving me crazy!!

Should say something on the centre display on the dash btwn the speedo and rev counter about service due. All alarm signals (door, seat belt etc) are displayed on this info screen.
