Just think of how much Mitsubishi saves on warranties running out a bit sooner than they should.
Could be by design?
I think the CEO or another Mitsubishi exec went to prison over a commercial bus crash incident in Japan where the factory should have had a recall out that could have prevented the crash.
They are no less slimy than any other high level cost-cutting big wigs.
I usually get 12-13mpg (diameter corrected) b/w 60-63mph if my tires are at 60psi. If I forget to air-up or forget to unlock the hubs it goes down 1-2 mph.
On a recent trip down the entire length of the Oregon coast I averaged about 12.5mph despite a lot of starting and stoping in towns, view points, campgrounds, etc.

Two Mitsubishi execs got suspended prison sentences after an incident involving wheel separation from a failed hub on a Fuso truck in 2002. A woman in Yokohama was killed by the loose wheel. Fuso trucks were subsequently banned in 42 of Japan's 47 prefectures including Nagasaki where Mitsubishi's main plant was located. That's pretty much why Daimler ended up owning the Fuso division. They had just bought a stake and loaned them a bunch of money when TSHTF.
