Mitsubishi SUVs and crossovers are very safe vehicles, but in order to properly protect your family, it’s important that your child car seats are correctly installed. Since we at Hampton Mitsubishi have seen that car seat installation is often done improperly on many Mitsubishi vehicles, we’d like to offer these suggestions so that you can avoid common mistakes.
Slide the belts through the correct slots. Because today’s car seats are made to adapt as your child grows, there are many ways to fasten them in place. Make sure you check the directions so you’re not securing the seat incorrectly.
Make sure it’s tightened enough. If the car seat wiggles around when you tug on it, it’s too loose. Pull the belts tight so they keep the seat secure. At most, the seat should only move an inch back and forth when you jostle it.
Use the LATCH system. All new Mitsubishi models like the Eclipse Cross come with the LATCH system. It’s a network of straps and hooks specifically made for fastening infant car seats. If you’re not utilizing this tool, you’re missing out on a vital safety offering in your car.
If you’re a young parent in Lafayette, Louisiana, who’s shopping for an affordable family vehicle, we encourage you to visit Hampton Mitsubishi. We have a selection of safe, low-priced vehicles like the Outlander in stock right now.
For 2022, the sporty and efficient Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross at Hampton Mitsubishi will show off improved driving dynamics to go along with its stylish makeover.
The new Eclipse Cross is more responsive and fun to drive than ever thanks to carefully tuned springs in its front MacPherson strut suspension and rear multilink suspension. The vehicle also features enlarged rear suspension absorbers for greater comfort. These changes combine with Mitsubishi’s advanced Super All-Wheel Control technology to provide outstanding control and mobility in a wide variety of driving situations.
Under the hood, the 2022 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross carries over its 1.5-liter MVEC direct-inject turbo four-cylinder engine. It’s made from aluminum to decrease weight and increase the crossover’s fuel efficiency. This engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission with an eight-speed sports mode to maximize your enjoyment behind the wheel.
The new Eclipse Cross is just as fun to look at as it is to drive, sporting an aggressive, streamlined exterior with a redesigned headlamp arrangement, front bumper guard, and tailgate.
The 2022 Eclipse Cross will be available in early 2021 here at Hampton Mitsubishi in Lafayette, Louisiana. Looking to buy now? You can get a great deal on the current 2020 Eclipse Cross in stock as we make room on our lot for the new model.

At Hampton Mitsubishi, we’re proud to support the local Lafayette community as well as be part of Hampton Auto. We think community involvement is of the utmost importance, and we’re constantly striving to help those in need and make the Lafayette community the very best it can be. Here are a few recent highlights of Hampton Auto’s support of the community.
Recently, Fran and Mark Hampton made a $10,000 donation to United Way to help flood victims. As Mark said, “Acadiana has been so good to all of us and this is just a way in hopes of paying back this community that we love so much!”
In 2016, Hampton Toyota — a sister dealership to Hampton Mitsubishi — was named the Best of 2016 Lafayette Auto Dealer. Every year, the Lafayette Award Program selects the best local businesses around in terms of business growth, customer care and service, and community involvement. We’re very proud that Hampton Toyota was named to this elite list.
In 2014, Hampton Toyota proudly took part in the Patriot Guard Riders Care Package Drive. The Patriot Guard Riders work tirelessly to support the families and attend the funerals of fallen service members: U.S. military, firefighters, and police. The Care Package Drive collects items such as blankets, toiletries, and other items we use daily and monetary donations to build the care packages, delivering these packages to veterans and other retired service members living in Lafayette’s local nursing homes. At Hampton Mitsubishi, we proudly stand with and serve those who have served us.
