Storm Clouds

Though winter may now officially be in the past, we are still not immune to icy weather in the form of hail. Hailstorms can be seriously dangerous and frequently occur with little to no warning. If you find yourself experiencing a hailstorm, here are some hail safety tips to keep you and your family safe

  • If given a warning, close your curtains and blinds to prevent injury from potential broken glass
  • If you are outside when the hail begins, seek shelter as soon as possible and try to stay away from windows
  • If you are driving, try to move your car under a bridge. If a bridge isn’t handy, it is best to pull over and crouch down in the back of your vehicle
  • Consider keeping a blanket in the back of your car. If there is hail strong enough to break any of your windows, you will need the blanket to shield you from the glass
  • Lastly – be vigilant. It is easy to avoid personal, physical harm by staying inside during a storm watch or warning

Hail can be dangerous and damaging for you and your vehicle, so stay safe and prepared for when hail may unexpected hit.  If you have any other hail safety tips, let us know in the comments at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.

Mitsubishi Lancer

Mitsubishi made a big announcement earlier this month, saying that the automaker would be expanding their future lineup to include a larger variety of model types. Specifically – they will be adding more sedans.

The Japanese carmaker is likely using these new sedan models to fill a void left by the unfortunate departure of the Lancer Evolution line. This popular performance line was recently cut from the Mitsubishi lineup after the carmaker declared it will not be renewed for the next model year.  Although, this makes us a bit sad at Don Robinson Mitsubishi, we are excited to see what new sedans Mitsubishi will be bringing on to replace it.

Don Swearingen, the executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motors North America, mentioned in a recent interview that one vehicle will replace the Lancer, while another will be inspired by the Mirage. He did not say, however, how many new sedan models the company would be adding to its collection.  We are just glad that Mitsubishi isn’t doing away with sedans for good!

Hopefully, more information will be revealed in the coming months. Would you like to see some new Mitsubishi sedans? Let us know what you think in the comments.
