Just bought a brand new Lancer 4 months ago and it got rear-ended last night while waiting in traffic. We will be moving down to Melbourne (from Sydney) in a week and a half - great timing right? So I will probably have to wait to get it fixed in Melbourne since we only have one car and we don't have any family/friends up here. My question is; is it ok to wait like 2 weeks before making a claim with insurance (never made one before)? We bought the car from Mitsubishi in Castle Hill; we got some 'special protective paint coating' applied to the car. If we were to get the bumper replaced in a Melbourne dealership, will they also apply this 'special protective paint coating'? When we bought the car the dealership said that there was a 'lifetime warranty' on it, but does this apply to all Mitsubishi dealerships?
I will give them a call but wanted to know the opinions of someone that's been in a similar situation or have knowledge about this stuff
