2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS 4dr SUV (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
Comfy on long distances, good power & acceleration, good storage, nice looking car and great for a family.
Both front seats have hard-plastic backs, so they're durable if you have kids who constantly put their feet on them.
Liftgate is unnecessarily heavy, jack is hard to get to if you have a car seat.
Mechanical issues explained below:
Bought new, issues began with the A/C compressor (replaced under warranty).
Replaced the battery twice (also warranty) & continue to have issues with a short circuit on the driver's side brakelight.
Engine requires premium fuel but still knocks & pings at times.
Comfort, acceleration, decent gas mileage for a large V6.
All controls within reach.
Stereo is MP3 only (needs aux and/or USB input).
Make liftgate easier to use.
