When Researching a New Car:

  • Decide on body styles
  • Set a budget
  • Consider the workload
  • List the features you like

The car buying process can be intimidating. After all, how do you pick from a line up of such great Mitsubishi cars? When it comes to preparing for your next purchase, a little research goes a long way. Start by determining the main jobs your car will be doing, what sort of body style you’re looking for—sedan, coupe, truck, ect.—the special features you’d like to see in your car and what your budget is.

From there, you can head online and start looking at all the great new and pre-owned Mitsubishi models a dealership has to offer. Here at Mike Miller Mitsubishi, we have an online showroom of great new cars you’re sure to love! Over on our blog, you’ll find many model profiles, to help you make an informed decision.


When Test-Driving a Car Consider:

  • Stopping distance and brake feel
  • Acceleration speed
  • Turning radius
  • Visibility
  • Comfort and accessibility

And once you have a few ideas of cars you like, come on down to the dealership and test-drive some of our popular models, like the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander that gets148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. Or maybe you’d rather experience the 2019 Mirage Hatchback, the perfect cute and reliable car for getting around the city with ease. Our lineup covers family vehicles, commuter cars and off-road machines, so start planning out which cars you’re going to test drive first.

When you take that spin around the block, you’ll want to pay special attention to the brakes, accelerating speed, and turning radius. Consider your visibility, the accessibility of knobs and buttons, the cargo space and how easy it is to get to the back seat with children.

Finding your next car doesn’t have to be scary. Let Mike Miller Mitsubishi be the Mitsubishi dealer in Peoria you rely on to find the perfect models for your needs. We’ll answer any questions you might have and help you decide on a vehicle you’ll love!
