customer feedback

2 cars incl. 2002 Honda Civic Type R EP3

It's been 5 months since our first email and the journey is finally over. I got my car registered today and it's a bloody good feeling.

Just wanted to say thanks a lot for all your work and assistance in personally checking the car and making sure it got here in good nick. Your service was marvellous!

If I go thru another importation of a car, I'll be using you again. :)

Mitsubishi Delica D:5 (CV1W and CV5W series)

In January 2007 the Delica D:5 replaced Mitsubishi's Delica Spacegear as their large size van, providing people mover space efficiency with off-road capabilities while maintaining on-road performance. Unlike most minivans available in Australia the Delica D5 has an all-terrain ride height and is designed with off-road in mind, offering excellent approach, ramp and departure angles plus in cabin selectable 2WD, 4WD and centre diff lock controls. Evidence of its highly efficient use of space can be seen in comparison with the previous Delica Spacegear, the D:5 having 20mm greater ground clearance yet with 100mm lower overall height, and 100mm greater interior height.

Available in petrol or turbo diesel (diesels are 2013 and onwards), power for the 2.4L petrol 4B12 engine similar to that found in the Outlander with MIVEC variable valve timing produces 125kW (170hp) and ample torque. The 2.3L turbo diesel 4N14 version is also similar to local diesel Outlanders and produces 109kW (146hp).

Fuel economy is significantly improved over the Delica Spacegear (either previous petrol or diesel versions) with 10.4km/L (9.6L / 100km) for city driving, and better still on the highway for the petrol, and 13.6km/L (7.3L / 100km) for the turbo diesel. Emissions exceed Japan's 2005 Emission Regulations by 75% and in Japan qualifies for the Green Vehicle Tax exemption. Diesel versions also have an idling stop mode to further reduce emissions. All D:5's feature a 6 speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) with steering wheel mounted paddle shift offered on Power Package and higher spec vehicles.

The Delica D:5 is available in a 7 or 8 seater configuration with high seating arrangement versatility including fully folding seats and large slide rail distances front to rear. Interior space is excellent and seats up to 8 passengers with very ample head and leg room. Captain's chairs (with folding arm rest) are available and there are a myriad of storage compartments throughout the vehicle.

Body corrosion resistance has been vastly improved over the Delica Spacegear thanks to rust resistant steel, better under floor sealing, and use of more undercoat. Fender panels are made of a plastic resin and are thus not susceptible to rust, are lighter, and will recover from minor impacts.

Standard features on all Delica D:5's:

  • Xenon HID headlights
  • 3x Dual mode SRS airbags (passenger, driver, and driver's knee)
  • ABS brakes
  • Electronic Braking Distribution
  • Active Stability Control
  • Dual zone aircon
  • Odor eating headlining that eliminated cigarette and other odors
  • UV-cut glass
  • Relaxing Interior Illumination adjustable LED interior lighting system (excluding M spec)
  • Idling Stop (turbo diesel only)

Optional or model spec dependent features:

  • 3 sunroofs (2x tilt, 1x power sliding)
  • Single or dual power sliding side doors (with anti trapping protection)
  • Power tail gate (with anti trapping protection).
  • Multiple parking cameras
  • Power folding side step
  • Rockford Fosgate Premium sound system with 860W amplifier, 12 speakers and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
  • Rear screen with infrared headphones
  • SRS curtain airbags for all 3 rows of seats
  • Captain's chairs
  • Smart key
  • Cruise control
  • Steering wheel mounted audio and phone control buttons
