Wow, it sounds like you've really been having a rough time. When I had my car towed, I called AAA (I'm a member) and they towed it for me to the dealership. I think the total miles towed was about 25, which cost me $100 after the 5 free miles deduction I have with my AAA membership. However, I then called my car insurance company to ask if any of this ... Read More
Thank you. We replaced the sensor and it didn't work. The garage we went to said it is saying to reprogram the computer and adjust throttle body. The closest dealer is 2 hours away. We have to tow it there to see what they say. The guy that has been helping me at the dealership over the phone trying to get it repaired around here, says he will work me in ... Read More
Hi - I just saw your message now, so sorry for this late reply. I wrote down exactly what was in the service report of my car in my post -- ("High resistance on pin 7 connector ZB115. Used multi-meter to check resistance of connector B115 to ECM connector B112. Load tested circuit in question. Ok. Found high resistance caused by insecure ground at ECM due to high paint build-up. Cleaned ... Read More
A faulty Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve that it is in the engine body is the main cause of loss of engine power even when pressing the accelerator pedal all the way. Usually this problem is detected by the electronic scanner by recording a fault code. I have not been in the situation of changing the EGR valve in any of my Outlanders but indeed I changed it in a previous Hyundai ... Read More
I am having the same problem with my 06 Outlander. Where was the wire located so we know where to start looking? I just replaced my accelerator pedal positioning sensor and a new battery and still have the problem. Please help! Thank you!!!!
I agree with your Outtie assesment Bat...Yes, the interior is cheap but my dog never complaines..I also enjoyed your past posts from your adventures with your Outtie down in South America... I bought a new 2007 Outtie XLS now with 77K miles on the clock and have had no problems the past 5 years....NONE...And, I live at the Continental divide in the Colorado Rockies so this car gets to be my ...

It is regrettable to read about your description of your Outlander problem. However, without any intention to diminish the occasional problems (electrical & mechanical) that the Outlander may have from time to time, I may say, that if you have come across other car manufacturer forums (see for example the Honda Pilot or the Subaru Forester) Mazda, Honda, Toyota, Suzuki, Subaru, Chevrolet, etc, etc; the number of complaints and re-calls are ... Read More
Thanks for the information. The service guy at the dealership told me that if the mechanic/tech hadn't found the paint build-up on that wire that they would have started taking my dashboard apart (to pinpoint where the electrical issue was) and it would have cost thousands of dollars in labor! My brother has a Mitsubishi Lancer and has had some major problems with his car, too. I have been thinking of ... Read More
Good Luck to you - my advice would be to be contact Mitsubishi the very second it happens again. I went through the whole complaint / arbitration process with Mitsubishi and they refused to acknowledge that there was anything wrong with my car because it was in working order at the time I filed the complaint. They ended up replacing the main computer in my car and I never had the ... Read More
I have had similar problems with my '06 Outlander as what I've been reading on this message board, and I think I have gotten my car fixed for real this time. I'm going to recap what happened to my car and hopefully this will help somebody else with an Outlander. In July 2011, I was driving on the interstate and my car suddenly lost power and could only drive up to ... Read More

OK....it happened again on Sep 3 while driving up an interstate on-ramp. I was so furious that I drove straight to the dealership - at 30 mph I might add- and pulled into the service bay. It was ~ 5:30 pm and the technicians were not there. But I did get the guy who checks you in to drive it. Unfortunately it corrected itself when I turned off the ignition. The ... Read More
The 2010 Outlander maintenance schedule requires timing belt replacement at 105k miles. Intriguingly an exception is made for the 4B1 engine - i.e the 4 cylinder MIVEC 4B12 engine fitted on the Outlander ES. Why is it not necessary to change the timing belt on the ES? According to the following references: Mitsubishi 4B1 engine on Wikipedia and Miisubishi Motors Technology Review 2006 N0 18 by Masato TOJO and Akihito KUBO. ... Read More
Few years ago I witnessed a problem with a car that was not a Mitsubishi whereby the engine appeared to lose power even by pressing the accelerator pedal until the vehicle stopped. When the scan machine was electronically connected to the car it gave an error code which was identified that the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve was defective. The car was 4-years old. This valve is very important for the ... Read More
Hi, kcole: I have a 2007 Outlander XLS and TRUST ME, you are not the only one. My 07 has 15,000 miles on it. I normally put 15k on my vehicles a year, but I don't trust this car to get me where I'm going so I've continued to drive my other vehicle most of the time. I have had the same problems you have encountered. Dealer has replaced the computer, ... Read More
I have had problems since purchase (9/06) with the check engine light and loss of power. The car will suddenly decelerate and even with the gas pedal to floor will only go ~ 30 MPH. I have had it in the Mitsubishi shop numerous times (8 over 1 yr). They have replaced the pedal position sendor, the throttle body assembly and adjusted numerous things. Haven't had a problem since 10/08 UNTIL ... Read More

:) Anyone need this? Mitsubishi Outlander Workshop Manual (1st Generation 2003-2006)
Sorry - in Oz so working in kilometres not miles. It's approx 18 miles per hour. Anyway, I have a 2006 Outlander (just the LS I suppose) and I have taken it back three times to Mitsubishi service to fix a howling noise that only occurs on the passenger side (left side for my vehicle) once the car is warm and only at 30km/h. It is not the brakes as it ... Read More
>> Mitsubishi, 2006, introduced S-AVC with all 4 wheel torque vectoring on 07 EVO X and now on Outlander GT. We now know that's not true. The Outlander GT does not have all 4 wheel torque vectoring. AFD = active front differential, which means it has front or 2 wheel torque vectoring, not all/4. It's not the same as the EVO X. Honest mistake, perhaps. I'll cut you some slack, we ... Read More
I made a couple of mistakes (not all that you mentioned), and I've admitted them right away I've got more corrections, since we're in the mood for admitting our mistakes. Frank: sorry, bear with me, promise these will be about the Outlander and on-topic.

downgraded "symmetrical awd" which after redesign lost LS differential Some models had a viscous LSD to manage traction on the rear axle (better than on the front, but still not on both), but it was replaced with traction/stability control that managed traction on both axles on all models. That was an upgrade, not a downgrade. Let's use Mitsubishi as a source for this one, from their 2006 press release when they ... Read More

Mitsu's site listed BMW and Subaru. Maybe I didn't scroll to the right enough? Or were you talking about Edmunds? Any how, Mitsu is certainly ambitious if they list BMW and Acura. Anyone who wants to spend $33k on a Subie can get an Outback 3.6R Limited with Navi, and that gets a backup cam with trajectory lines (does Outlander have those?), big engine power, and a huge 8" Nav screen ...

That's the 06 Outlander Concept. Showcased at the 06 Paris Motor Show, prior to the Outlander's debut in the UK. Read the article: http://paxtech.blogspot.com/2006/09/mitsubishi-outlander-concept-and-2007.html
I looked these up for the AWD/4WD thread, but they are relevant since we seem to be comparing everything under the sun: Angle of approach: Forester 24.8 degrees, Outlander 21 degrees Angle of departure: Forester 24.8 degrees, Outlander 18 degrees The concern here would be the Outlander's angle of departure. You may get the front bumper past an obstacle, but it might get hung up on the rear bumper. As I ... Read More
The symmetrical AWD and boxer engine makes the center of gravity in the Forester lower. The reality is AWD/4WD have been around for about 100 years, but Subaru includes AWD with every vehicle. We can go back and forth back and forth and so far all the tests show that Outlander has a slightly better ski pad number so I would say handling is about the same. From most of the ... Read More
Motorweek's test of the Outlander was even slower: 0-60 in 8.9 seconds. I did a double-take to make sure that was the V6, but it was. My point is the better 4 cylinder (normally aspirated) competitors can match that and are a lot more economical with fuel. Why get a V6 if it's not a significantly better performer? In fact, I wonder if Mitsubishi's own 2.4l with the CVT is as ... Read More

Not quite - Subaru the awd can shift torque right to left and corner to corner as well as front to rear. Outlander cant do anything but go to rear and then with the lock turned off and simple awd engaged the wheels can spin their little hearts out until the stability control kicks in and applies a brake to the offending wheel or wheels and the car crawls to a ...

I'm a huge Mitsubishi car fan. I'm on numbers 2 and 3 now and thinking of getting a new Outlander. In the Portland, Oregon/Vancouver, Washington area we now have 3 Mitsubishi dealers. Every dealership I have bought a vehicle from has went out of business. My first Mitsubishi was a 1997 Mirage LS Coupe, Bangkok blue. What a great car. I drove it 9 years with no problems at all.

>> "It looks more stylish vs. odd-looking CX-7" You call the Cx odd? How about unique? Different? Stylish?! Unique and different? Sure. Stylish? Not for my taste and not for the taste of majority CX-7 owners, who could not rate it very high for the exterior design on Edmunds.com. If CX-7 owners are not thrilled with CX-7 styling, imagine, what the non-owners think about CX-7 looks. I would say the CX-9 ... Read More

The Mitsubishis you drove were different animals. These were essentially Chrysler vehicles with Mitsubishi label. These cars were built in Illinois and they had Chrysler powertrain and parts made by Detroit suppliers. Thanks God, Mitsubishi divorced Chrysler in 2005. Chrysler certainly heavily damaged Mitsubishis reputation in US, which in fact affected the resale values of Chrysler-build Mitsubishis. But now, the things have changed. The Outlander now is built entirely in Japan ... Read More
i am wondering if there is any more info out there concerning the ralliart version of the outlander that was shown at the 2006 SEMA show.
Probably so. Sales have gone up for Mitsubishi, 19.6% for January to April, 2007. Canadian sales for April 2007 is 91.1% compared to the same period in 2006 due to strong demand for the new Outlander. Things are really looking bright for the company. http://www.autonorth.ca/home/2007/5/2/canadian-auto-market-up-9-in-april.html

I purchased my Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD Dec 27, 2006. It now has over 5,000 miles. I have a question of other 2007 Outlander owners. Are you experiencing any paint chipping issues around the rear wheel fenders and rear doors? I am having serious issues and believe it is because of a design issue. Mitsubishi claims it is only because of road hazards. The problem is I have lived in the ... Read More
I would just like to know what mods you would do to personalize your 07 outlander? I would definately get some lowering springs as soon as someone offers some. I have no intention of going offroad and I think this car would look so much better lowered. something like the evolander--http://www.autoblog.com/2006/11/01/sema-mitsubishi-evolander-packs-a-- pocket-rocket/
Picked up mine on Feb 21, but mfr date is November 2006. Definitely has the front end knock, but not the wind noise/mirror rattle. Calls to the Mitsubishi 1-800 number will get you a denial of the front-end knock problem and a scripted, "Should there eventually be a recall on your vehicle you will be refunded for repair costs." I had to laugh at that since I'd only owned my car ... Read More

“From what I read some people say "never buy this car - it almost killed me", or "it always pulls to the right..." I'm not sure if they actually owned the car or just heard of some problems, some other people had. That usually is the case.

I had some bad experience with my first 2 dealers also. The first one was Hempstead Mitsubishi in NY which located 6 miles away from my home. They had the loaded AWD XLS in stock.

To follow-up... I went back to my dealer and had a "discussion" about this issue with the front end. Apparently Mitsubishi has known about this problem for quite some time. Here in Japan, the new design model Outlander has been available since about Sept 2006. They told me that this problem is common in the new Outlander. But they're not exactly sure what is causing it. One theory is that the ... Read More
No need to panic. Yesterday, within 2 minutes drive from home to the Future shop, I saw five Outlanders 2006. All of them LS models, all different colours and options (i can tell :) because i spent weeks researching this little SUV).

I just recently purchased a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander SE & I now have almost 3,000 miles on it. I am typically getting 20mpg on the highway at best, and about 15mpg in the city is this normal? My wife drives a Subaru Forester and the mpg was great from the begining. I personally like the styling on the inside & outside of the Outlander, plus it seems roomier that the Subaru. ... Read More
I never owned a Mitsubishi car. Thanks to a new Mitsu Dealer in the area (couple of guys selling cars from their office/portable) i became interested in Outlander and/or lancer (same platform, interior very similar).

2007 Outlander IT IS NOT a MINIVAN by any definition. IT IS NOT a TALL WAGON either like 2006 Outlander. IT IS a COMPACT SUV. Interior wise, this topic was extensively discussed on this forum - it seems to be on par with RAV4 and CRV. It's adequate for what it is - an entry level compact SUV. If you do not like the interior design, this is a different story. ... Read More
Yup, I am from up North... Not too many Mitsubishi cars on the road around here, but number is increasing. We are not going to see a new 2007 Outlander until Feb of 2007. Why? I do not know.

I have the 2006 LS 2WD. I was able to get it for a little more than $200 under the invoice price. Of course if I would have taken the $1500 rebate instead of the 0% for 60 mos I would have been $1700 under invoice. I am located in the suburbs of New Orleans and did not have any trouble getting them to negotiate. The Outlanders they had in stock ... Read More
It's a slow start... :) I do not see any ads on TV or else where about Mitsubishi. Only my local paper mentions Mitsubishi, but they use extra fine font so nobody can notice their ad...

From that Consumer Guide review: "News We hear Outlander will offer a 4-cyl engine, but probably not until model-year '09. It's a 2.4-liter unit sourced from the new Global Alliance joint venture that Mitsubishi operates with Chrysler Group and Hyundai. The 4-cyl was supposed to be available at launch, but was reportedly delayed by budget constraints at Mitsubishi." What are these nuts talking about? Mitsubishi already have a 2.4L 4cyl engine ...

I agree, however, how many Mitsubishi cars we have on the road in Canada? Very-very few compare to Honda, Toyota, Ford, etc. Mitsubishi has to do more in terms of making its cars affordable. In Canada, Outlander 2006 Limited with leather (which btw looks like leatherette) & sun-roof, with 0% interest over 60months will cost you $40,000. You have to be very crazy person to pay 40.000 for the car, which ... Read More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this subject. I just came from "Mega Mitsubishi" (dealership in Province Quebec, Canada)...

Based on the upgrades coming in 2007 it could be worth waiting. 2007 Outlander The 2007 features a 24 Valve 220HP V6 engine. Six Speed transmission with shifter paddles on the steering wheel.

I leased a Mitsubishi Outlander 2006(special edition) from Cite Mitsubishi of Montreal on Nov. 15, 2005. I drove it twice on the road so far. In both cases, the vehicle almost killed me.

It is obvious that the vehicle has some serious mechanical problems. ... Read More
One thing to consider is that the Outlander is scheduled to be redesigned for the 2007 model year. You can read about it on the "future vehicles" section of this site. The redesign will mean that a 2006 Outlander will look sort of outdated after a year and may depreciate more quickly than would otherwise be the case. The Forester got a moderate redesign a year or two ago, and therefore ... Read More
