i bet this program will be the equavilent to their "1 year, no interest no payment" deal, the dealerships told the buyers to refinance after the year to get a better rate, but the buyers found that refinancing wasnt an option after that year was up, because the cars they bought at 20k were only worth 1/4 of that, and they still hadnt made any payments on the 20k, so they were 15k in negative equity. thats the reason 75% of dealerships went under within a month of the year mark of the "no interest, no payment" deal.

the only reason mitsu is alive is that theyre not just a car company. selling cars is like 10% of the company, they make tv's, electronics, stored foods, etc. even if their car department makes 0 profit or negative, itll still never be closed.

though the 4g(06+) eclipse is starting to sell quite nicely. if that and the raider sell good, it could turn sales around and start bringing in positive sales. though selling free gas for a year isnt gonna help matters.

Re: Why can't Ford be like Mitsubishi?

Mitsubishi heavy industry which build ship, jets, TV's, Stereo's, Construction equipment is the largest Industrial corp in Japan. Their auto division has been for sale for years. It has lost money for years even though they build decent cars, There was a time where Chrysler Benz was going to buy them but backed out.

Re: Why can't Ford be like Mitsubishi?

free gas = 0% = $2000 cash back. You choose one. They are all about the same thing, they just offer you free gas instead of knocking $2000 off of the car.

It's marketing, and pretty smart at that.

i hear that. the new eclipse gt is putting out 261 HP isn't it?(on 91 octane) It makes me mad these other car companies have 6 bangers putting out the equivalent power of V8's. all that VVT and electronic stuff helps a ton.

but then they mate them to FWD drivetrains, and all that power about as useful as, well, cant think of anything more useless right now as FWD is.

and spector, mitsu cars are as POS as their owners. you do stupid ghetto **** to a car, and you deserve for it to strand you on the side of the road. look at mine, only time it left me stranded was the alt blowing in sacramento, and that can happen to any car thats sucking 2000w and winding out to 7k rpm. only time it was in the shop was for the clutch(im too lazy for clutch install) and timing belt(not enough patience). i only hope my stang is as reliable as my GST was.
