Hi, I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Cedia Petrol (2.0 L 4G94 Engine). The car is a charm to drive and though I have to work really hard to find spares, I don't plan to sell it off . The car has done 90000 kms as I rarely use it in the city, it has never had a timing belt change because my mechanic kept insisting it does not need one as Mitsubishi parts last long. I am not willing to risk it any more and suffer belt valves on such a great engine, hence want to change the timing belt, have a couple of questions around it: 1. Can I still get OEM timing belt/timing kit from Mitsubishi, if yes, where? I am currently in Chandigarh. Also need help to identify OEM spares against fake replicas. 2. Should I replace only the timing belt or also the pulleys and water pump. My mechanic says it is better to carry on with OEM parts that came with the car as third party spares do not match the same quality, hence leave the pump & pulleys as they are causing no issues and the mileage is not too much , it is just that the stuff close to 15 years old!
Mitsubishi has stopped sale of the Cedia Sports, EVO X sports sedan and the Outlander in India. The Mitsubishi India website now only has the Pajero Sport and the Montero on their website. Its really sad to see these cars go. The EVO anyways had a high price tag and the Outlander being a petrol didnt help. Here are screen shots from the Mitsu website that announce the end of the road for the above models. Do you think these cars could have been saved with better marketing and after sales service? Its like the end of an era. The Lancer alongside the old Honda City was a cult car in India in those times
It's really a sad news for all auto enthusiasts & car lovers, Lanser (Diesel) & Pajaro SFX (old one); which ruled our heart for decades; are no more available in Indian Market! The Pajero SFX can still put some 21st century off roaders to shame. The Pajero SFX commands a dedicated fan following amongst SUV enthusiasts and off roaders due to its tough build quality and bomb proof reliability and the Lancer brand was almost synonymous with the street racing circuit. The Lancer Diesel, the sedan was a well built, reliable and frugal C-segment car model, which like the Pajero SFX also was past its prime years, especially in a market where a brand new crop of C-segment cars that offer much better looks and performance operate. Given the minuscule sales of the Lancer diesel and for that matter even the Cedia sedan, it was just a matter of time before Mitsubishi had to stop producing this car. However, for reasons such as outdated design, stoneage technology and dwindling sales figures, Mitsubishi India has finally put both iconic cars to rest! But their is a good thing that Lanser, majorly known for it's petrol version & It's still availaible; but due to extremely poor sell, it may be pulled out of the market very soon & Like the Lancer Diesel, the Cedia too is a abysmal seller with monthly sales struggling to even touch the double digit mark. Given that the Cedia is available only with a 2 liter petrol engine, its brilliant handling dynamics go often unnoticed as the car is not even on the C-Segment car buyer’s radar. Mitsubishi would do well to bring in a modern day turbo diesel motor into the Cedia’s engine bay, if it ever intends to turn around its sagging fortunes in the Indian car market. Otherwise, expect the Cedia to go the same way as the Lancer. While the Pajero SFX has received a worthy successor, unfortunately the Lancer will not be replaced with the next generation model. The Mitsubishi Cedia will continue to be the flagship for the brand in India. source : www.indiancarsbikes.in
