2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport Not Running No Reserve on 2040-cars

Year:2004 Mileage:158000
Location:

Perry, Ohio, United States

Perry, Ohio, United States

This NO RESERVE Auction is for our 2004 Mitsubishi Montero Sport. Understand as per the title this vehicle is NOT running. The timing belt broke while driving and this is an interference type engine, meaning there is a possibility of bent valves from hitting the pistons once the engine went out of time. The repair might be as simple as replacing the timing belt and pulling the heads and replacing a couple of bent valves, or it might require a replacement engine. This cant be known until the engine is torn down.

The body is in great shape, the front and rear bumpers front grill and right fender were replaced/repaired and repainted two years ago after an accident (no frame damage). The interior is decent, and we are non smokers. It could use a cleaning, but no rips, or stains, other than there is one small hole in the back of the driver head rest from before we bought the truck. The gas tank and fuel pump are new, as they where replaced by the Mitsubishi dealer 3 months ago.

The tires are less than a year old and are in great shape. This SUV also has a trailer hitch, which is about two years old, replaced after the same accident mentioned above. This truck goes down the road straight, with no shimmies. It is a full time all wheel drive, with a selector for 4 hi and low 4x4 lock. The 4x4 parts all work.

 Also it has power mirrors, windows and locks. Cruise control, tilt wheel, am/fm/CD. Basically a nice SUV in need of an engine or repair of the engine. We have had it 10 years and almost 160,000 miles so we choose not to invest any money into it.

You must make arraignments to tow this vehicle yourself as I do not have a way to move it. The vehicle is currently in Perry, Ohio 44081 so check with towing companies for their fee to tow from Perry to your location. contact me with any questions before you bid, I will be happy to answer any questions and I can supply more photos upon request to your e-mail. This truck is also listed locally and I reserve the right to end this auction if it sells.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

Consumer Reports: Ford Fusion fun but flawed; Mitsubishi i-MiEV slow, chintzy [w/videos]

Wed, 23 Jan 2013 16:31:00 EST

Waiting for a Ford compliment from Consumer Reports these days is like waiting for a low-cost new product from Apple. So we weren't really expecting a glowing review of the 2013 Ford Fusion when CR got its hands on the car. The institute's crew bought three different versions of the Fusion (Hybrid, 1.6-liter EcoBoost and a Titanium with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost) to put through its barrage of tests, and while we aren't too surprised by some of the findings, they're still interesting nonetheless.
CR praises the Fusion for its "eye-catching" design and says that the sportier Titanium trim level is the best-handling midsize sedan they've ever tested, but that's about where the good news ends for Ford. The Fusion Hybrid also posted the best-ever fuel economy CR has recorded in a midsize sedan, but the only problem is that their number was 39 miles per gallon combined - far less than Ford's 47 mpg rating for city, highway and combined. As expected, CR also dinged the Fusion for its MyFord Touch, but some of the other gripes about the car include a cramped cabin and poor fit and finish.
Other Ford products tested this time around include the Focus Electric and C-Max Hybrid. Like the Fusion, CR's observed fuel economy of 37 mpg for the C-Max fell well short of Ford's advertised 47-mpg rating, and both cars were criticized for the use of MyFord Touch. CR notes that the Focus Electric's interior is also cramped, with the battery pack taking up a lot of cargo space.

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV faces longer delays, might not arrive until 2016

Thu, 22 May 2014 07:58:00 EST

It seems every time the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV makes the news the information concerns a delay, and the reason always centers on its batteries. Four months ago the culprit was restricted battery supply from Lithium Energy Japan, pushing the arrival to 2015. This time it's no different, with Automotive News reporting that a battery-related request made by California state regulators will push the Outlander PHEV arrival back to "late 2015 or early 2016."
CA authorities want all plug-in hybrids to be fitted with a monitor for the lithium-ion batteries that will be on the lookout for degradation, the concern being that diminished batteries could change the vehicle's emissions. Getting the technology fitted and tested means something like a 16- to 22-month delay.
The extra time, however, should let Mitsubishi figure out what it's going to do about its battery supply since the current level of 4,000 per month isn't enough to support a US launch; the Automotive News article says Mitsubishi expects a volume of 63,000 plug-ins for 2016. The company hasn't said how it plans to make up the balance.
