Default Re: Bad Experience with Chevy Dealer

Ditching a car because a part wasn't available is extreme. One thing my father always told me when there was a neat car that would come out from Mitsubishi or one of the off-brands was to call their parts department and see if they stock a headlight bezel or something like that. Mits was notorious for not supporting their vehicles with a parts supply. Not sure how they are today.

The Astra was a very limited production unit so I don't see that having a limited supply of certain parts being an unforeseeable problem. I'd venture to say that it'd be tough to source some parts for a G8-GT as well. The Lancer is OK but I'd be in a new Kia or Hyundai years before I'd be in a Mitsubishi. One of the issues with the Lancer is liner to the windows. They use some hard piece of plastic that has no felt liner on it like most cars do. So, if you tint the Lancer, it'll need to have these put in or the tint will scratch terribly.
