Adequate care of your vehicle at regular intervals serves to preserve the value and appearance as long as possible.

Maintenance items as described in this owner’s manual can be performed by the owner.

We recommend you to have the periodic inspection and maintenance performed by a MITSUBISHI MOTORS Authorised Service Point or another specialist.

In the event a malfunction or a problem is discovered, we recommend you to have it checked and repaired. This section contains information on inspection maintenance procedures that you can do yourself. Follow the instructions and cautions for each of the various procedures.

WARNING:

● When checking or servicing the inside of the engine compartment, make sure the engine is switched off and has had a chance to cool down.

● If it is necessary to do work in the engine compartment with the engine running, be especially careful that your clothing, hair, etc., does not become caught by the fan, drive belts, or other moving parts.

● The fan can turn on automatically even if the engine is not running. Turn the ignition switch to the “LOCK” position to be safe while you work in the engine compartment.

● Do not smoke, cause sparks or allow open flames around fuel or battery. The fumes are flammable.

● Be extremely cautious when working around the battery. It contains poisonous and corrosive sulphuric acid.

● Do not get under your vehicle with just the body jack supporting it. Always use automotive jack stands.

● Improper handling of components and materials used in the vehicle can endanger your personal safety. We recommend you to consult a specialist for necessary information.
