  • Mitsubishi debuted a new roadside assistance app.
  • The app helps stranded Mitsubishi drivers.
  • The iPhone-based app is free.

An all-new mobile phone app provides accelerated roadside assistance to Mitsubishi owners. The iPhone-compatible Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance app gives the brand's drivers extended access and quicker responses during an on-road emergency.

Available for free on the iTunes App Store, the Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance app's main function is to put drivers directly in touch with a roadside assistance agent who can dispatch help to the user's location. According to the automaker, the app provides Mitsubishi owners with lockout assistance, battery jump starting, flat tire changing and emergency gasoline delivery. The automaker says the app also connects drivers with a licensed towing service, which will transport a stranded vehicle to the nearest Mitsubishi retailer.

In addition to helping drivers contact roadside assistance, the app also provides updates on the progress of responding tow trucks or service vehicles. For Mitsubishi owners facing a serious roadside emergency, the app also includes an emergency response button. In addition to giving drivers one-touch access to emergency dispatchers, the button transmits the caller's vehicle data and location, reducing the need for a troubled motorist to relay information in a stressful situation.

"We've provided Mitsubishi owners with an interface that is not only simple and easy to use, but also provides immediate access to a network of more than 30,000 licensed towing service providers," said Dave Ferrick, president of Insurance and Automotive Markets for Agero, the app's developer.

But the app provides more than just roadside assistance and emergency response. The automaker also says the Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance app helps drivers with trip routing and mapping, should they ever become lost and unable to find their destination.

Mitsubishi currently includes five years of roadside assistance standard on each of its vehicles except the fully-electric i-MiEV, which includes three years of assistance. The automaker says the new Mitsubishi Roadside Assistance app, which is available now, can only be used by a Mitsubishi owner or a family member driving a Mitsubishi vehicle.

What it means to you: Reaching a roadside assistance agent just became much easier for Mitsubishi owners.
