Service Your Mitsubishi in Mechanicsburg

Even with a 10-year, 10,000-mile warranty, there are things on your Mitsubishi that are going to need attention from time to time. Regular maintenance is part of the game with any vehicle, and your Mitsubishi is no different. That’s why the service center at Platinum Mitsubishi is here to help you with all of your service and maintenance needs.

Stop Procrastinating!

We’ve all done it. You know about that upcoming oil change, you see the miles ticking by, and yet you haven’t yet made your oil change appointment. Whatever the reason may be, delaying your oil change is one of the biggest mistakes you can make as the owner of any vehicle. First, going too far beyond the recommended oil change interval can void your powertrain warranty if anything goes wrong. And second, something absolutely will go wrong if you wait too long.

Your engine oil has one job – to lubricate fast-moving engine parts, preventing direct contact and dissipating heat build up inside your engine. Even the cleanest old oil will become too thin to properly coat your engine, and the result will be tiny metal fragments getting shaved off of your engine components. While it might make your engine oil look pretty and sparkly when you finally do get the oil change done, it also means that permanent damage has been done to your engine, and it will never be the same again.

That Goes for Brakes Too

If you hit the brake pedal and hear a grinding noise, don’t put it off just because you can still come to a stop. That grinding sound is the noise a brake pad shim makes when contacting your rotor. When this happens, it means that you are completely out of brake pad material and are now damaging the rotor. If you call us and set up an appointment at the first sign of trouble, we can probably get you in and out without sacrificing the college fund, but wait too long and we’ll be replacing your entire brake system assuming you haven’t already crashed.
