Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander?
Nice exterior design, comfortable inside, handles nice if tires and brakes are new, lots of room inside passenger and cargo areas. Other than that.....DON'T BUY A MITSUBISHI! BOYCOTT THEIR VEHICLES AND SAVE YOURSELVES MONEY AND HEADACHES! IF YOU HAVE A MITSUBISHI CAUSING YOU PROBLEMS, HIRE AN ATTORNEY!!!!
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander?
New Mitsibushi ownership to improve Outlander quality, service, management and customer service! Gas mileage no where near sticker estimate. Only gets decent mileage if you stay at 40 MPH with no elevation changes. Needs premium gasoline even though owner's manual says all grade of gas ok.
2007 Mitsubishi Outlander Review:
Liked vehicle until engine problems started within 2 weeks. First month car was in service dept. for 2 weeks because vehicle was surging so badly it couldn't be driven (not a gasoline problem). Mitsu. Service said they had a "memo" (not recall) that computers needed to be reprogrammed for such problems. At 8,000 miles and under warranty, 3 tires were bad with uneven wear. and at 10,000 miles I broke down when front brakes went through to metal, which has NEVER happened to me! Mitsubishi Tow (free through my purchase agreement) never showed and at midnight after work I was stranded in bad location for 2 hours until towed by another company, which I paid for. Mitsu. Service did a free alignment under warranty because the car was making a clunking noise in front end and was pulling to the right, charged me for brakes and rudely brushed me off on any responsibility. Also said 3 tires (4th tire was in good condition) wouldn't have unevenly balded at 8,000 miles if I had rotated them. Mitsu. said my driving must have caused problems, even though I told them I took Outlander to 2 independent shops who both said something was seriously wrong with front end. Told Mitsu. Manager I have a 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT sport car (which has had a broken CD player since purchase after Mitsu. replaced it 5 times with refurbished ones!) and a 1998 Ford truck that have never had ANY brake or tire problems, nor has any other vehicle I've owned in my several decades. (At 10,000 miles I bought 4 new BF Goodrich tires for the Outlander since I have had exceptional wear from this brand over the last 30+ years.)
Approx. 1 year after purchase, rear passenger window came off track and I had it repaired. Window came off track again so badly that I have to leave key on, walk around car and hand feed window up in order to close it. Last week window broke for good and won't open or close. I know, it "must be the way I'm driving". Service Manager at the dealer was an a-hole to me several months ago when I called him about window coming off track again and other continuing problems with Outlander.
Have now owned Outlander 26 months and 26,000 miles: On 3RD set of front brakes and 2ND set or rear brakes, 2ND complete set of new tires, now bad, EVEN THOUGH I HAD THEM ROTATED between 6 & 7,000 MILES...guess that isn't the problem. Have spent a small fortune repairing this PILE OF CRAP that is stll in warranty. I am now shopping for another crossover from a reputable company. Am glad Mitsubishi appears to be going out of business so they can't screw over anyone else like they have screwed me.
