Mitsubishi Motors North America recently released an iOS app that is designed to give owners near-immediate roadside assistance whenever they need it for problems such as a having flat tire, being locked out of the vehicle, being stranded without fuel and even offers a tow to the nearest authorized Mitsubishi Motors dealership should it be required.
The app can be acquired at the appstore and once it’s installed, all the user has to do is input their name, phone number and VIN number into the app. After that, whenever the user needs roadside assistance, all they need to do is open up the app and select which type of service they need. The app then uses the device’s GPS information to track and locate where the user currently is and then forwards the user to the Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance call center.
It’s not specifically said in their newspost here whether or not this service is available in Canada yet, but if this does take off successfully, we can expect to see all manufacturers pumping out something similar to provide for their customers.
