    Default 09-15 PS owners, please educate me

    owners of PS's please inform me of the following

    Are there coil or leaf springs in the back?

    What year was the touch screen stereo introduced? was it only in the 2.5?
    What features does the touch screen support? (bluetooth? NAV?)
    Does a touch screen mean the car has PDC?

    What range do you get from a tank of fuel? the tank is 70lts right? so assuming you fill maybe 60ish lt?

    Are the roof rails half decent, or are they only for decoration?

    have you experienced any rust issues?

    how much do you pay for services?



    I'm considering getting one in the beginning of next year, and want to do homework before arranging any test drives

    Coils

    I have 2010 3.2 pre touch screen. I installed a touch screen aftermarket unit, which work on steering controls and have a reverse camera for R5k
    Mine has PDC
    Town driving only, I got 8 km/liter on fill-up yesterday. Long trips I get 9.5 km/liter. I set cruise control on 120km/h GPS speed.
    You can fit a proper roofrack on rails.
    I have not a service yet.

    The touchscreen came in 2013 in the 2,5
    It has reverse camera and bluetooth.Not much else
    The 3.2 auto had a 4sp auto and the 2.5 5 spd auto..Both had manual options available but scarce
    Some 2.5 models 2013-14 had overheating issues but it seems mitsu covered vehicles that were even out of warranty..I think you will know if the dealeships did teh preventative work on them if the radiator cap is the uprated one from 108kpa to 124kps if memory serves.
    The 2.5 motor has more lag in first but other than that its a very nice driving motor and gearbox.
    I have not taken a 3.2 on long road but i have achieved 11.5km/l in a 2.5 doing 125kmph..if you push over 130 it drops below 10kml

    70 lit tank yes, but hardly ever fill up more than 60 litres because of reserve. Consumption as mentioned by others up to 10.5 km/lit when driving leisurely.

    3.2 came in manual from 2012 only in the last year it was available. So very few 3.2 manuals out there.

    Roof rails can handle 80kg.

    No rust.

    do all PS's have PDC? Yes, the 2.5 has additional camera. The button is to switch off the beeping when reversing with a trailer.
    is it only rear? Yes

    on the 3.2's, can the info on this screen be changed? Press the far left button below "INFO"
    If so, what are the options? A few, just check. Compass, fuel usage etc.

    Like auto wipers/lights maybe? Both 3.2 and 2.5 have auto lights, not sure about auto wipers on 3.2

    thank you

    does the radio info stay on the screen and the top half can be changed, or does the entire screen change with the above selections?

    reason I'm asking is that if you install an aftermarket stereo, it'll obviously loose the ability to send info to the screen above... so can the screen be used for other functions instead of just being blank

    The time, compass and temp stays on top part of the display. The radio info change to which ever other setting you select. But when you adjust radio volume, channel, CD track, USB file, etc., the display change to that specific info for a few seconds then back.

    Hello,

    I'm not sure if it's the same on the PS but if it is it may be very useful for those who tow a lot of have a bike rack on regularly.

    On my gen 4 if I hold the PDC button in for a while it switches the PDC mode between trailer and normal mode (wait for the beep) . On the trailer mode PDC will stay off for the duration of the drive once turned off irrespective of changing between drive and reverse. I have found this hugely helpful as it can get annoying when you are reversing a trailer for example to keep having to turn it off.

    Hope this helps.

    And I'm back with more questions....

    as I look at more for sale listings more things pop up to ask about....


    Do all Autos have shift paddles? or is it the 2.5's only? all spec levels?

    What airbags are fitted to the vehicle? eg driver and passenger, what about curtain and seats?

    Are there isofix points in the back seats?

    thanks

    Only the 2.5 has shift paddles, I use mine quite often when I feel the auto is a bit slow to kick down.

    I know my 2.5 does not have isofox, so it would be the same for the 3.2.

    No idea about the airbags!

    In order to use these paddles, does one have to shift the gbox selector into a "sport" or "+ - " mode like some other boxes?
