I think Mitsubishi should downsize and stick to making basic low cost "it just works" type cars/trucks and affordable enthusiast cars. They won't compete with Toybaru/Honda in larger markets and should find a niche. What do you think?
Looking at their current lineup, Mitsubishi should probably accept that they have almost nothing to offer the developed world, and just get on with selling cheap crap to poor countries.
There's an old saying, "You can be better, or you can be different" regarding the car biz. To this I can add cheaper.
Mitsubishi is none of these things. They were at their best when they were either cheap and reliable (if a bit generic), or different and involving (like their 80's and 90's turbo cars). They are going to have to come up with something other than another crossover if they have any hope of success beyond Asia.
737's, A319's, and MD80's are a lot more expensive to fly on short haul routes. Given airlines usually only make 1 or 2% profit, they'll take any efficiency they can get.
Also, E-Jets are 4 across, C-Series are 5 across, 737/319's are 6 across. So they're all just as cramped.
I know WHY they're flying them. I'm saying it'll suck. Not really the same but I rode jumpseat in an E175 a couple times and the crew gets to second base every time they pull something off the printer.
Didn't know the Bombardier was going to be 5-wide though.
None of it handles well at all, though. And there are other firms that make cars that are either cheaper but no more crappy, or the same price and less crappy.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy about any of this. I'd love to see a new Starion, Evo and Galant Vr4 just as much as anyone else in this thread. But the Mitsubishi that made the originals is long dead, and its corpse is really starting to smell.

When you're ready to stop avoiding the question, you can answer any time.
The Mitsubishi Group (三菱グループ, Mitsubishi Gurūpu) (also known as the Mitsubishi Group of Companies or Mitsubishi Companies) is a group of autonomous Japanese multinational companies covering a range of businesses which share the Mitsubishi brand, trademark, and legacy.
There no question, because you don't know anything. MHI, once upon a time, made cars. Generally they were for the Japanese military and politicians. They may, still, I don't know. They do not own and are not responsible for MMC.
>basic low cost "it just works" type cars/trucks
Sorry. ha niche is already taken
>yfw this was an ACTUAL advertisement.
with trucks ?
id like if they bring back comfy interiors and crazed limited editions
but that is wishful thinking in today's market
where no one likes their car or keeps it long
main thing with mitsu is they have a rep for terminal engine failure
mirage 1400 turbo
space wagon mk1
>main thing with mitsu is they have a rep for terminal engine failure
The only time I remember them getting shit about their engines were for the GDIs that kept gumming up valves
I don't believe you. The only issues I know of with engines are the 4D56 cracking heads and the 4M40 warping them. Both only if the cooling system is uncared for and they overheat.
Jokes on you, they still use the same engines. They only just ditched the 4M4x in their new Pajero Sport and L200 and they STILL use it in the Pajero along with the 6G7 that probably still kicks around in something else. Hell in GCC you can get the 6G72, still.
my family has had 4g37 and 4m40 shredding head gaskets from warping heads
and heaps of local people dislike Mitsubishi
guess its just people not getting the right engine or taking care of things
your holding it wrong .ect
right. and General Motors doesn't make refrigerators.
not really. also i don't think it can be compared to GM where GM acquired many independent bands
Every Mitsubishi company still falls under the
Mitsubishi umbrella and was started by it.
MMC grew from Mitsubshi's industrial arm, and that industrial section was started by interests of of the older branches of the company.
Mitsubishi companies are all related but not in the same way as GM.
GM adopted all their companies where as with Mitsubishi they're more like distant cousins
>They have no 'parent' company.
So, it's just a coincidence that they all happened to use the same logo and name and just one day thought "hey guys, would you look at that we all use the same name and logo, let's be a group!" right? You fucking idiot?
