When was the last time?
When was the last time you had a car like this to drive? One of the more memorable marketing campaigns that Ford Motor Company ran in both the USA and Australia in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Click on the link below to listen and see what a great commercial is all about.
So with due deference to this iconic commercial, I bring you “Have You Driven a [insert car here] Lately”. Over the coming weeks and months, I’ll be road testing various vehicles – some new, some late model and some older vehicles as they come into my stock.
Let’s start with “Have You Driven a Mitsubishi ASX Lately”
Mitsubishi’s new ASX is a compact SUV available in front wheel drive and all wheel drive. My wife Suzi specified an ASX 2WD when she wanted a new car recently. Why? It has the power, features and size that she wants. She was coming out of a Mercedes Benz A180 and enough to say that the Mitsi impressed her
The ASX is big enough to take a load of stuff to our weekender at Peachester. The ‘load’ generally comprises 2 cats in cages and a largish lump of a speckled dog along with the necessary clothes, groceries, artwork and stuff.
Power everything, and comfortable seats. Cruise Control, 7 air bags and ABS and ESP as well.
Whilst running a 2.0 litre engine, the ASX also has a CVT (6) speed auto transmission which pulls the ASX around very well with plenty of power on tap for hills.tap for hills.
