My white VRX was bought new 2007 at John Hughes in Perth. It now have 245,000km on the clock, and is regularly serviced, full logbook record. The cambelt was replaced now 4 times, tyres at every 75,000km and to be honest it is in mint condition both outside and inside, no accidents, no bumps, no scratches. On a long stretch of road it will easily average 7.8l/100km, but in town not as it is too high geared. and in any case 4th gear is quite sufficient in town. The spare tyre still is the original. My car is parked inside a closed garage and und...er cover at work. Overall a great car, well engineered although I also must be realistic, there will be a time that I will replace it. Mechanically, the condition it now is in, it is good for another 100,000km easily. Well done Mitsubishi.
Purchased in May 2007 at John Hughes Car Sales for $30,000.00.
Questions & Answers
My radiator fans have just come on by itself after my car has been just sitting for hrs an not driven it anywhere,,has done it only afew times but confused as to why it would do that..anyone else had this problem
Can anyone tell me what it means when my vrx 380 radiators fan comes on when my car hasn't been driven for hrs hrs but then all of a sudden the fan starts
On my dashboard a symbol has come up with 3 curvy lines (May refer to hot steam) on top of a coffee mug. What does this mean pls? My car service is due 104,000K’s it’s currently on 102,900k’s if that helps.
The Trip Computer on late model vehicles usually includes a built-in REST TIMER (it is a coffee mug with steam).
The timer starts a new countdown from when the engine is first started.
By default it is set to 2 Hours - this is the recommended maximum time allowed for driving, without a suitable break.
It is essentially a safety feature and there will be two further reminder warnings after 5 and 10 minutes.
On the left of your dash, you will see the 3 buttons for the Trip Computer.
By pressing the top (MODE) button, you can scroll through the various info parameters (Range, Fuel Total etc) of the Trip Computer.
To adjust the Rest Timer:
- Using the MODE button, scroll through the different options until you come to the REST function.
- Using the Up or Down buttons, you can increase (or decrease) the trip duration of the timer.
The Rest Reminder function can be turned OFF completely (not recommended though) by holding both UP & DOWN buttons simultaneously for approximately 2 seconds.
To learn more, refer to your vehicle's Handbook.
Hope this explains :)
