It was a fun vehicle to drive. 1 month
after I took ownership, in the garage
for fuel regulator $550.00. I haven't
even owned the veh a year and it is
back in the garage for: crankshaft
pulley. Garage attempted to take bolt
of and it snapped at the head.
Mitsubishi is quoting me $4000.00 for a
new Crankshaft because they won't just
replace the crankshaft. they have to
replace everything they touch why
removing the crankshaft. Good-bye
Mitsubishi for good.
I've had this SUV for one year. It
currently has 120k miles. After fixing
the water pump, the engine has worked
great. I love the roominess, compass,
four-wheel drive, height, reliable
engine, two extra seats in the back.
One time I took ten people from
Harlingen, Texas to Monterrey, Mexico.
It was packed, but we made it. One
main thing I don't like is the rough
Great seating, realiable and smooth
engine, good height, great instrument
panel, nice 4X4.
Spark plugs impossible to change on
your own (but still working after 120K
miles), rough ride, low power, poor gas
I have been extremely happy with this vehicle. I purchased it with 52,000 miles. It now has 208,000 miles. In that time, aside from regular maintenance, I have spent rougly $450.00. I have had no mechanical or electrical problems. I have yet to replace a fuse. I have used it heavily off road in the coal mines and back woods of the south. It has gotten me out of situations that I was convinced were impossible to escape. This model is truly one of the last great SUVs. It has classic styling and a very functional interior. It does ride rough but it is a truck and that functionality and durability is what I wanted when I purchased it.
Durability, dependability, off road ability and classic styling
List of things that have gone wrong.
Flywheel cracked 32K, AC compressor
60K, Engine Cylinder head after timing
chain broke - 80k, Heater Core 81k,
Electric seat motor 90K, Electric Radio
Ant. 93K, Needs Full brake job every
12k miles. Every single system and
part of this vehicle is disposable.
This is the history I've had after
following the maint. program to the
letter. I love their new ads - they
have to give their cars away - no money
down, no interest and no payments for a
year - Soon they will paying us to take
They day I got rid of it!
