2008 Mitsubishi Outlander LS 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Pros: looks nice, Fairly good Mileage
When excellerating from stop , can not do it smoothly. You have to push harder on the gas peddle and then the front wheel hop takes over and you are all over the road.
Front wheels spin out all the time when starting from stop.
Told this is normal with Outlander.
I have gone thru 2 sets of tires now (Rotate every 6000 miles to try to save them), but 3rd set is needed and only have 70000 miles on Outlander. (Last SUV Santa Fe had
70000 miles on 1st set of tires). I canít let my 17 year old drive it because of the wheel hop.
Also radio is nuts.
You turn on and 5 to 10 seconds later it comes on. You go from AM to FM or Vice versa,
it takes 5 to 10 secondes to change over.
(Was also told that is normal).
As you ease into a turn and begin to
accelerate the steering wheel will not begin to return by itself you have to pull it back and sometimes jerk it back .
(Also told this is normal)
Will have to get rid of shortly to get soemthing My 17 yr old can drive. He has no problem with our other cars just this one.
