Bought the ASX in 2015 and done 48,000 Klms. Had absolutely no problems except for squeaking auto brake pedal assembly. I get 6.7 litres / 100 Klm on freeway and 9.5 litres per 100 Kim around town. Audio and phone are still working well. No paint problems, wash and wax every six weeks. I love my ASX.
Purchased in October 2015.
For the past 12 years i owned and drive two older toyota corollas. And I could not speak highly enough about the quality of them.
As my kids were heading in to teenage years, and our income tax was stable we purchased our very first brand new car. To say I was excited is an understatement.
We’ve now had our 2019 Mitsubishi ASX 18 months, have done just under 30,000 km.
Like all my belongings I treat this car like gold, the most expensive thing I have ever purchased, after over a decade of driving older cars, I only ever park in the garage, at...

Failed my expectations sadly ...Sold the car may 2021
Very let down i have to admit was a great incentive the 5 year warranty BUT mine is just 4.9 year old and the transmission has failed completely ,i got every service on time and only driven 86,000 klms ,no part in australia its on back order ,still waiting after 3 going on 4 weeks to get a loan car im spending a fortune to try get to work -finally got a loan car 2019 Prev outlander Electric ( So far the car is fantastic drives great and saves you on petrol ) ,you would think mitsubishi would have sorted a more smooth trouble free experience ...SINCE i did buy my asx for $25000 , wouldnt recommend thats for sure UNLESS affter some advice - to get your fluid changed earlier than what they recommend ! Biggest disappointment was the service i received ive contacted Mitsubishi head office Sydney day after day and you get no straight answer was frustrating to deal with ....Otherwise the asx drives ok seems to be good on petrol ,good little suv to do quick trips ... UPDATE : Thought i would update ive had my car back for around 6 weeks and would you believe the transmission was slipping again , as you slow to the roundabout and then excellerate off there is no power so you need to put your foot down harder and then it just speeds off and revs really high , so i contacted the mitsubishi and they had to tow it to them wednesday so once they look at the problem will update further its obviously the transmission again , im so dissappointed in this car its now just 3 weeks out of the 5 year warranty . Got the car back in April a few days later after getting it back the 3rd time the battery kept ticking so i replaced the battery and decided enoughs enough and sold my car through car sales and then went and purchased the New Mg ZS Essense 2021 in may so happy with it :)

Mitsubishi vehicles are rubbish
I have tried out 2 outlanders and an asx and they are junk , the materials used for the interior are the most hideous I’ve come across, the plastics and fabric compared to Toyota are inferior , I will never buy another Mitsubishi
Looks nice, drives ok but unreliable and cheaply made
Air conditioner has been broken from factory intermittently blowing very cold, then warm and so on. Waited three weeks for a part which didn't fix the issue and now I was asked to wait another 6 weeks on a new compressor from Japan. All this while we have 34 degree days in QLD.
Now I also noticed the stitching on the seems of the seat cushion fabric coming apart. I am a light guy at just 80kg, the car has only been driven 6000km and I hardly ever drive anyone else but myself around. After taking photos at the dealers and sending them to Mitsu...bishi, I am still waiting on a response 10 days later. UPDATE: After 15 days and several follow up calls to the dealer Mitsubishi responded to the seat warranty claim as follows: "Mitsubishi have advised the stitching is still intact and uncompromised at this time and that replacing the seats at this point won't change anything. They have noted the concern on your file and advised that your warranty is valid until 2025." What a joke.

- ASX XD LS (2019-2021)
So far, a its a beauty.
Bought it brand new in Oct. 2020. So far, (touch wood) it has been a little beauty. Up until Xmas it had just been used local in Sydney and has been great. In the space of 3 weeks over Xmas we have drove just on 3,500 klm on two road trips. First was the Hay Plain to Balranald etc and back to Sydney and then out to Lightening Ridge and surrounds and back. Fuel use pleasantly surprised me. It averaged out at around $8 per 100 klm at around $1.15 a litre average. On long trips my back normally gets a little stiff and sore but the ASX seats and ...suspension are so comfortable I was able to drive the full distance home in 9 hours with no issues. The car drove a treat and handled the dirt roads and long run home without a hiccup. There is plenty of leg room in the front of the car and roomy enough in the rear that the passengers don't complain. Pre-purchase, the boot area looked big enough but once some bits and pieces go in, it soon fills up pretty quick. Another foot would have been nice. If anything changes I will be sure to let people know. The 10 year Mitsubishi Warranty sounds good along with the fixed price for services. I hope there will be no surprises when it has its 15,000klm service. (extra costs).

2021 ASX Dream to own
My 2021 ASX LS model is a dream. Purchased late Nov 2020, it's one of the first 2021 update models fresh off the car carrying ship from Japan. This SUV is gorgeous and drives like a dream. Plenty of grunt, accelerates fast and uses only 7 ish litres per 100 kilometres, the auto CVT gearbox is the best design ever, aircon is cold, everything is just awesome, vehicle in white looks amazing. Such a well thought out vehicle. So comfy, heaps room, easy to drive, top selling SUV in Australia year after year. Ten years warranty and ten yrs capped priced servicing. Best purchase ever. Paid apx $32"000 driveway for top LS model and got tint and mats, bonnet protectors, windshields etc etc. Amazing value, safety packed LS model the best.

- ASX XB (2012-2014)
Value for money
75,000km in after abuse of the JATCO CVT transmission, it seems to still be going strong with no issues. Has not been dealer serviced since 2013, only has had oil changes along with the tailgate struts and wiper recalls. Has minor oil leak, as expected from constant flooring with traction control off. Other than that, is quite sound. Though many issues might be present with the engine as it hasn't had a professional diagnosis.
USB and Bluetooth started to fail within 2 years, and window visor screws started to loosen as well. Front suspension ...also starting to squeak, though the vehicle has come across many curbs and dips. Sound insulation isn't great, though it is not a true luxury car. If the Mitsubishi ASX was regularly serviced, I'm sure these issues can be easily managed and prevented. The XB version is the best looking generation of facelifts. Simple, yet still stands almost 10 years later looking modern. Braking - ABS does solid job, though I haven't tested on dirt Acceleration - For it's size and form, it does well and does not underperform especially with the MIVEC

I bought the new Mitsubishi ASX 2017 Feb model in April 2017. I got all my services done on time and through a mitsubishi dealer, there were no issues according to their mechanics.
I shipped my car to NZ when we moved over in November 2019.
Just last week (September 2020) my car died completely, would not start at all. Local mitsubishi dealer said it was my starter motor. My car is still within warranty so I was not worried, until they told me that they will not honour that warranty because it's an Australian model.
I called the head office o...

Excellent Car and Value
I bought my 2018 petrol ASX LS new for less than the price of a Corolla. It is brilliant if you want a traditional vehicle that is substantial, reliable, and cheap to maintain. It is a pleasure to drive, provided you are not an ignorant driver who is hard and mashes the accelerator often. This is a car that is super smooth, comfortable and just does its job without fuss, and it looks really nice also. It is one of the nicest and most satisfying cars in my long list of cars over my lifetime. Currently I have a Corolla and an ASX. The former is m...ore sporty but a bit cramped, so we use the ASX for more room or longer trips. The seats are comfortable, the equipment and tech is good, the headlights are good, the horn is good. Love the adjustable indicator sound level. In 2 years of ownership nothing has broken or needed fixing, just regular maintenance. It gives the impression of being very robust. The aircon is great, as good as the Toyota. The only area that could be improved is the ride. It is a bit too firm and under damped in the rear. I rented an Outlander interstate, and the ride was better, so it must be a suspension tune setting for the ASX. It is acceptable, but the Corolla has a better ride. To drive the CVT transmission for more instant power, you need to understand how to use the sport setting on the shift lever. Sounds simple, but most people have no idea how to properly drive a CVT vehicle. Also will make sure I service the transmission regularly before every 5 years or 90k that is recommended, as others report transmission failure through dirty fluid fault. Overall love this car.

Love the new car!
I recently purchased an ASX from Paul Smith at Mitsubishi Mandurah. The level of service provided by Paul was exemplary. He was very friendly and personable. He demonstrated much patience as I asked multiple questions and answered all my questions honestly. No question was silly. Thanks for helping me select the right car for me - love the colour and the car - thanks Paul ! Highly recommend the ASX and Paul.

Good alround, but needs some refining
Bought the car second hand off a female owner who treated the car terribly - absolutely putrid inside... Spent good time cleaning and dismantling it thoroughly so got to know the insides and out very well.
The looks of the car remain unchanged, by why change a good thing? I personally like the old front end prior 2015, the face-lift 2017 is a bit too much chrome and busy... But the body and lighting remain unchanged up until the 2020... I do love the 2020 rear LED tail lights that's about all from it...
Car is well built, quality is what you...'d expect for a $30k circa car, plastics and metal work under them representing Japanese build quality. Alround interior surfave plastics are very acceptable to the touch, not sure what people complain about? Driving the car itself, good fuel use, good power from the 2.0L, gets a bit thirsty with spirited driving as you'd expect... I do hear a lot that the 2.0L is a stronger power plant than the 2.4L durability wise... The manual gear box is easily used, plenty of feel, good gear ratios and excellent shift feel. I hear the CVT is a pile of junk from many sources.

Test drove this and hated it
I test drove this car over a weekend and it was very uncomfortable to drive. The front driver's seat has very high sides which pushes your knees together, so you can't relax. However, the high sides of the seat also cause pain, they push up against the back of my upper thigh and cause nerve pain in the back of my leg. Also the seatbelt clasp on the driver's side digs into my hip. I had to put a tea towel between my hip and the clasp just to drive it. When I got out of the car, I had trouble walking.
The glove box made a very strange rattle fo...r a new car. The air con was positioned so it's right in your face and it was very annoying. The car wasn't anything special and had cheap, scratchy plastics all in the inside. It definitely isn't worth the price.
I have my 2017 ASX since brand new and buying this car was the best decision I made. While I mainly use my car just going to and from work, it easily handles long road trips as well. It's so roomy inside but small enough to fit easily into parking spaces. Fuel economy is exactly what the salesman said it was and it's never missed a beat.

Questions & Answers
Is my reversing camera supposed to make a noise when I get too close to something? Mine doesn’t.
Hi. Reverse camera doesn't make a noise, the park sensors make the 'beeps'.
They start - beeping' from about 1m (3.3ft) away from an obstruction if detected. The closer you get, the quicker they 'beep'. The central info display on the instrument binnacle will show which sensor is picking up the obstruction.
If your park sensors are not working (beeping), check that you haven't switched them off.
There should be a switch lower on the dashboard between the steering wheel and the door.
If that still doesn't fix it, maybe a fuse blown or they are faulty
I have a2015 ASX and a clicking noise had started when I start the car. It sounds like an electrical switch opening and shutting. The battery is original. Does anyone know what the noise is.
When this happened to me i needed a new battery
Does the car start up or just 'click'?
If it is just 'clicking' and not starting, after 5 yrs, the battery should be the likely suspect.
If it starts up, could be other things, like the aircon compressor left on and starting up.
Maybe get someone to start the car whilst you listen under the bonnet or in the footwells to try to locate the source.
Hi. Did the car start after the clicking, or does it just click and not start?
Second scenario is most likely battery.
1st scenario could be lots of things like the aircon left on and the compressor starting up when you start the car. You need to try to locate where the click is coming from.
My asx 2020 has a, red light flashing under touch screen opposite hazard lights and a beeping. Starts on locking car
That is your alarm and immobiliser.
When it beeps, it is arming and takes about 15 seconds. Red light shows that it is armed.
Alarm will go off if you open a door or break a window without deactivating the alarm first (with unlock button on remote).
You can deactivate the interior motion sensor and only have the doors armed, but I will have to look how to do it again - can't remember, but it is useful to know. Will get back to you on that.
To deactivate the interior sensor which sets the alarm off if there is movement inside the vehicle when the alarm is on, do the following (excerpt from another Mitsu Forum), it works on the ASX.
"Put the operation mode in OFF.
Raise and hold the wiper and washer switch to the “MIST” position for about 3 seconds. The buzzer will sound once and the function will be deactivated."
The alarm will only go off when a door is opened, so you can leave a dog or person in the car with windows down.
" To activate the function again, raise and hold the wiper and washer switch to the “MIST” position for about 3 seconds. The buzzer will sound twice and the function will be activated."
The alarm will now go off when does are opened, windkw is broken, or there is movement inside the car.
As far as I remember, once you activate either of the settings above, it will remain on the settings until you deactivate it as above.
