"Over the last couple of years, we have made a concerted effort to make the Mitsubishi Motors page a fun and informative destination on Facebook," said MMNA Executive Vice President, Don Swearingen. "This has resulted in our Facebook page becoming an outstanding means of communication between the brand and our highly engaged and passionate Mitsubishi Motors community."
