Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi North Hills
The SUV revolution has taken hold here in the Pennsylvania area. It seems like the road is filled with drivers who have given up on wagons and sedans. Looking for a versatile vehicle that can handle rough roads, has large cargo space, and still provides great gas mileage? You’ve come to the right place! At Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi, we understand that buying pre-owned vehicles can save our customers money. We know that there are significant concerns you need to weigh before you take the leap.
As we’ve noted, a pre-owned vehicle is going to cost less than one that just rolled into our showroom or onto our lot. In fact, up to 30 percent of depreciation in value occurs just within the first year. So, if you’re patient, you can save thousands of dollars that you can put towards maintenance, gas, or your next vehicle. In addition to that, your total cost of ownership will be lowered due to the reduced car insurance premiums we offer. These premiums are based on the overall cost of the vehicle.
At the same time, when you search used SUVs in North Hills, you’ll want to keep an eye on a few things. Pennsylvania inspections don’t track the number of critical systems outside of emissions, and vehicle history reports only record major accidents. If you are buying from a private seller, you’ll have to research recent recalls. Then, have a trusted mechanic take a look at the vehicles you consider purchasing - warning you of any potential issues down the road. You also will likely not have warranty coverage.
With those factors in mind, we know that the number of SUVs we offer could be the right fit for you.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross launched in 2018 with the looks of the long-renowned Eclipse coupe and the cargo flexibility of an SUV. Our Outlander Sport and the Outlander, which both contain room for five people and a sleek aesthetic, make for strong sellers in our showrooms.
Even today, the seven-inch touchscreen and Apple and Android compatibility are standout features. Many also come with an all-wheel-drive system that has three separate modes. These change up the responsiveness making them a great fit for the slick conditions of Pittsburgh winters. In addition, a panoramic camera system, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams were available on several trims. Fuel economy has also been a strong suit since launch, with EPA estimates of 27 mpg in combined driving.
As you get to more recent models, other features spring up and become more interesting. The infotainment system gains improved screens year over year. The addition of a heads-up display that you can use even while wearing sunglasses helps to keep eyes on the road. Other cold-weather features included available heated seats and steering wheels.
In addition, the Mitsubishi compact SUV has great reliability ratings compared to its competitors. The advantage of steep depreciation lowers the cost, even more, when you look at other compact models in the class. For those who are looking for a banquet of features, a used Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross can be an amazing value.
It’s hard to find a good three-row SUV that’s actually affordable. The fact that the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander has a great starting MSRP could make it appealing to many people shopping at Jim Shorkey Mitsubishi. With a modest re-facing in 2018 and a full update in 2016, the Outlander’s older siblings make for highly competitive alternatives.
You have the option of a turbocharged four-cylinder or a V6 engine, and most recently, even hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Thanks to a number of efficiency efforts, the Outlander has repeatedly led the class in the overall fuel economy with the base engine. Even with that, many come with the available all-wheel drive with selectable modes and available automatic climate control systems throughout the cabin.
In addition to the versatility of the third-row seating and large cargo area, this vehicle also has one of the first forward-collision mitigation systems. This mitigation system has helped the Outlander earn the "Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s Top Safety Pick+" award. This makes it one of the best options for durability in the midsize SUV class.
Along with that, the Outlander includes a number of infotainment features, including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Plus, the ease of button-based interfaces that can be used even while you’re wearing gloves. The entire package also has gained strong marks for reliability, with few engine or drivetrain issues. This package also includes warranties that are likely to still be in effect even if you buy a several-year-old model.
