biggrin They've Outdone Themselves!!!!

Those bunch of loopy fruits at Mitsubishi Marketing HQ have come up with another gem of pure fiction. Hell even Disney would be proud of this one.

Not content with a their last add and its laughable and totally inplausible claim that a 4WD skud would outrun either of the local big two performance sedans. These whacky mitsu guys have created another beauty that is sillier than Donald trumps hairpiece.

Even before this they were using some bit actor from "the castle" flame trying represent the magna as the Aussie alternative. Yeah about as Aussie as inviting the boys up to the local for shouts of rice wine and a feed of canton duck.

The latest dirge has a team of garbologist swooning at the latest mitsu smiling shitbucket and then dumping a perfectly functional ex taxi EA in the skip. Funny stuff at first but I think this is just another example of mitsu in denial.

So if we think back to the era where the EA was gleaming and new what was the mitsu alternative, yep thats right those t-whatever magna 4cylinder jobbies. You know the ones with the counter rotating shafts to stop them shaking to bits and the cable operated manual shift with more cables than the golden gate bridge.
And this is really where mitsu have the dilema there are plenty of pristine EA's still giving good service, and plenty more shocker ex cabs still passing the annual roadworthys.
How many of those T-something 4cylinder skuds are still out there. Not many, and those that are have reserved parking at Simmsies.

The negative representation of Falcon in these latest adds show that Mitsu must see Ford as their biggy rival, which just goes to show the dont have a clue. No Falcon driver would want to be seen dead in a Magna, if they had one as a loaner they'd claim it was owned by their 70 year old uncle from Cessnock, or that they were driving it for a huge bet.

Mitsu has failed to see that its true market was anyone silly enough to buy a hyundia sumatra, looking to trade up to something less ridiculous next time.
Mitsu's loss koreas gain.

These adds try to portray the skud as all the things it isn't but wishes it was, powerful, well handling, attractive, and good value for money.

Still we needn't be offended for too much longer, once they hock off these last batches of current model skuds, mitsu will have no claim to being an Aussie car whatsoever. And thats the pity, lost aussie jobs because mitsu tried to sell skuds as something they weren't, rather than concentrating on what they were good at, oh well thems the breaks..

Count how many 4cly magnas you see mobile tomorrow, dont worry with the EA's you'll just loose count.

Re: They've Outdone Themselves!!!!

Didnt see that one. Sounds pretty ridiculous though, comparing a new Magna to a Ford released 15 years ago lol.

Has anyone seen their other new ad, the rally one where it shows their Patrol and Evo rally cars taking corners sideways with the end slogan of "There Is No Finish Line".

Lol, sounds like someone saw The Matrix one too many timess

Great post. But you gotta feel sorry for the poor buggers though, they did better with the 15 year old Magnas than the current ones, I believe, in terms of sales... They probably have the potential to make a Ford/Holden TRUE rival... who knows why they dont...

Re: They've Outdone Themselves!!!!

Good stuff........I'm sick to death of the holden vs ford crap all the while "other" manufacturers are devising plans to corner the Aussie market.
Just like mitsu's awd ad, leaves the 'ole ford slidin' out at the first bend. Real practical if you live in a town with dirt streets, cause ya certainly couldn't take that sh*tbox off roading.

Re: They've Outdone Themselves!!!!

Its shameful that Mitsubishi name other cars on their ads. Quite funny really because Magna doesn't deserve to be used in the same sentence as Falcon. Not even a blip on the radar.

Re: They've Outdone Themselves!!!!

mitsubishi sales have dropped about 50% across the board. sadly, the only way they can make themselves look better is to try to make the competition look bad. and that is always a give away that someone is completely desperate.

besdies, the huge slump in magna sales would have nothing to do with the fact that they took a conservatively and mildly attractive car and made it look like a scared frog, would it?
