Benefits of Buying a Mitsubishi When you Have Bad Credit

The Mitsubishi lineup, with its low price-points, can go a long way in creating a loan structure that is attractive to financial institutions who are looking at approving a car loan for someone with poor credit. A Mitsubishi vehicle also has the benefit of having one of the best warranties in the industry. This brand stands behind its automobiles like almost no other. There is a five year/60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. The peace of mind that these warranties provide is a lot of extra value. You can drive one of our popular Mitsubishi models, like the Outlander or the Outlander Sport, and know that the backing of this warranty will protect you from an unexpected mechanical failure, as well as having to make a car payment and pay an auto repair bill in the same month. With each on-time loan or lease payment, you will not only get closer to paying off your new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross or Mitsubishi Mirage G4, you will be building positive credit history and getting your financial history back on track.
