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. 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.
ASX 2011 Diesel
Rare Diesel model 2011 model
Great on Fuel
mitsubishi Always give great extras
have had a few expenses on repairing
being that its Diesel and they are rare to find it means parts are expensive
Drives very well
Best 27k ive spent :) first time ASX MR owner
You wont go wrong... such a value-for-money sub-compact suv... I brought a 2019 facelift MR model which comes with upgraded 18s, tints, sensors, apple car play, auto and in Red Diamond.
It is soooo smooth cruising along open roads and only uses 7L per 100km on 95 gas. On 91 it was using 7.9L per 100km. This goes up to 9L flooring it. I cannot fault it.
I think people compare these to cars or else large SUVs... well then yes they are a tad bumpy at slow speed and yes the motor can be louder than a corolla. Compared to other subcompacts its tri...

What a fantastic car!
I’ve owned my ASX for about 6months now and I’m so in love with it!
I drive job to job every day of the week and it’s such a great car, comfortable, great space as I need my boot for all my work gear.
Very happy with my purchase!

Love my car!
This is the family car. It goes everywhere we do.
I love it! It is easy to drive, easy to get into. The seat rises high enough to see out of for a short person. The electric seat buttons are great as are the wing mirrors. Everyone comments on how beautifu the colour is too! (Kingfisher blue).
My only criticism would be that there could be more insulation from engine noise - though it isn't annoyingly noisy. When I compared it with my sister's Toyota Corolla - the Toyota was quieter.
Absolutely love my asx if I had to pick a negative it’s that My particular mode only allows one phone in the Bluetooth system. But I can handle that. Easy to park zippy round town

Perfect for my lifestyle
Spacious, no mechanical issues. Have had mine for almost 3 years and I absolutely love it. Small enough to park, but large enough inside to fit 5 people comfortably. Also, very good value for money
Fantastic small SUV.
I previously owned a Lancer and have never had any mechanical issues with it. So for my next car upgrade I was looking into small SUV’s.
The ASX by far is great value for money for a small SUV. My main purpose of driving is for work or appointments, and even though I downgraded from a 2.4L to a 2.0L engine, I don’t particularly notice the power difference. It is a little laggy (I.e takes 2 seconds after putting your foot down hard to register and have the engine kick in), but for me this isn’t a hassle. The reverse camera gives me more confid...ence for safely parking. It has excellent safety features. Apple Car Play is fantastic, giving you the option of hands free for your phone and playing music if radio stations aren’t you’re thing. The heated seats are incredible, I’m not sure I could own a car that doesn’t have them again. I love the panoramic moonroof, driving on a slightly sunny day with the inside open creates a feeling of the cabin being slightly larger than what it actually is. The only thing that does tend to bother me slightly is that when it’s been raining and you open the car door, you get drops of water landing on your car seat. I see a lot of people complain about the road noise, however comparing my Lancer to the ASX, I don’t particularly notice a dramatic difference. Inside is easy to clean and safely reach those hard to reach areas. With the added height of a small SUV, and me being short, I need a ladder to reach the roof. My car was purchased as an ex-demo model.

Perfect car for my medium sized family, easily fits in 4 comfortably. The back cargo area is very roomy and when you fold the back seats flat it is massive! Great fuel economy

I am three months in with my 2019 Mitsubishi ASX and absolutely love it. For the price point, it offers features that no other car in its category can. We were on a budget and looked at various cars prior to purchasing it and nothing else compared. I honestly believe that there is a reason there are so many on the road!
It is a great, reliable car for running errands with children, fair boot space, great keyless entry, apple car play and reversing camera. Everything a modern mum like myself needs to get from A to B.
Our only negative is the...road noise can be noticeable if you are on a longer trip or on a freeway, but from day to day this is not noticeable as always busy chatting in the car or listening to a radio. The extended warranty and capped price servicing was also a selling point. We purchased our vehicle from Brighton Mitsubishi and I also highly recommend their service. A great small family car, commuter car, or car for a couple.

Perfect for my family
I love my asx ! Mines a 2018 model This is a great car for running around, I have 3 girls and with school and sport and weekend outing I can’t fault our car. We have never had a issue it’s 100% reliable and the fuel economy that I get is second to none. It may not be a 4wd but it is big enough for a pram and a boot full of shopping and a baby seat plus two older children fit comfortably with plenty of room still.
Have had really bad luck buying cars lately, having bought an MG ZS 12 months ago that ended up being biggest mistake (but that’s another story) with the money from the buy back I decided to purchase a Mitsubishi ASX LS, must say wish I had done this March last year and saved myself the heartache. The car is a great for running my errands, going to classes and it handles very well, so far fuel economy is good, the car is comfortable, love the fact that my son who is an Android user, he can borrow my car and plug in he’s phone and use it and more daughter who is an iPhone user can use it as well.
I live that I have a 3 year capped service fee. So far this car has been the best decision I have made in a motor vehicle purchase

Questions & Answers
I have a mitsubishi asx with child protection built into the door I had the protection off to being with then turned it on as I have a little one the door on odd occasions will not open from the outside you have to re unlock the car to unlock the door it has done that on both settings. Would this indicate i have a problem with my locking mechanism or central locking
Hi my parents have just purchased a 2018 ASX and are wondering if there is anyway you can turn off the beeping sound when you are in reverse
Hi. I’ve had my 2020 ASX for a week, a few times now whilst driving a orange light flashes with a beep (3 times) the light doesn’t have an icon? What could this mean?
Think you may have to check your owners' manual and look at the instrument binnacle layout to see if you can find a corresponding lamp warning in the diagram, otherwise visit the dealer.
My ASX is older, so you most probably have features that aren't present in mine.
(not possibly a Blind Spot Warning, if you indicate to change lanes and there is a car next to you? Just guessing here)
