Stoked to see this forum and have enjoyed browsing it a bit.
I'm in the process of purchasing a 2018 GT with about 25k miles on it. I haven't seen it in person yet, but it looks to be in pretty good shape.
I was curious of any advice on key checks that I should do before accepting the vehicle. Also, I was curious about the best way to check the battery health, if this is easy enough to do from the vehicle itself or the app, or if I should get the system read at a Mitsubishi dealer or just any good local auto shop with a reader.
I have heard that there are some issues where batteries can report more degradation than they actually have, and that this can be fixed through some modifications/upgrades. Anyone know about this and if there's a way I can check if the vehicle has already been updated? If anyone has any advice on some good tests for me to perform or things to check, outside of the routine checks for buying any car, please let me know.
Lastly, any thoughts on the best modifications and upgrades? I'm thinking to get the OEM hitch installed. Another thing I was trying to figure out is why the UK version lists towing capacity as 1500 kilos (~3300 pounds) whereas the US version lists only 1500lbs. But it does seem that perhaps the UK version ships with a 2.4l engine and the US with a 2.0l engine? Appreciate any insight here.
