Review of the 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor

  • A solid all-around package for those who crave non-traditional styling more than ultimate cargo- or people-toting capacity.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Rides like a car, roomy seating, torquey V6 power plant, solid build and materials quality, good crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Less cargo capacity than the class leaders, polarizing interior design, no third-row seat available.

  • What's New for 2005

    Following on the heels of a significant midyear refresh for 2004, there are few new features for this year. Side airbags are now standard on all models, and an anti-theft system is included on the XLS.

Best vehicle ever purchased

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS AWD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned my 2005 Endeavor for approximately 5 years now. I first thought it was a jeep from viewing from the street. i went to the car lot and was surprised it was not a jeep. I took it for a test drive up and down hills. It was a smooth ride and was easy to handle. I have purchased many cars in my life and found this one to be easy on maintenance only needing regular oil change.

Worth every penny!

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor XLS Fwd 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I bought my car in June of 2005 and have loved every minute of it. Love the sporty look and have not had but 3 problems (regular wear & tear) with it. In the last 6.5 years, I have put 111,000 miles on it and spent under $800 getting all repairs done. Not bad considering I am always on the road. Would recommend this car to anyone. Great for singles, couples, families or even hauling animals around like me (4 dogs and 2 cats).

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS AWD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased at 19 miles. 4 years since then. No problems at 50,000 plus miles. Comfy long distances. Hwy mileage is very good, not so much in the city. AWD runs great off-road, including the sand --fun! The least i like about it, noticeable muffler from the back of the SUV, and U-turns are wide.

Great experience

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS AWD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my Endeavor for 5 1/2 years now and at 95,000 miles had my first problem--not even a new car bug. (have kept all service, minor and major up to date). Just had to have propeller shaft and bearing assembly replaced due to bad bearings. But fully covered by 100,000 Mile powertrain warranty. Feel great this is the only issue in 95K miles!




Good crossover for the price

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor XLS AWD 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

We bought our Endeavor a year and a half ago and have put 25K miles since then. We have been pretty happy with it so far. It has a lot of cargo space in the back and the seats are easy to fold down to create even more. I love the power this vehicle has and the transmission is very responsive. The transmission does make a wining noise in warmer weather. This is a known issue with them - can't be fixed, so I deal with it. It is very comfortable on long trips. I question its durability, though. The interior is very cheap. The fabric, although comfortable, is already showing significant wear. The dash and doors are mostly brittle plastic and the sunroof seals aren't sealing.




I love this car

Vehicle: 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor XLS Fwd 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have had this car for awhile now and I absolutely LOVE it! It's just the right size for me and it's really fun to drive!
