Mitsubishi deserves to fail
By cwd986 on


2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport ES 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Where to start...rattles galore on a brand new car, idle that wants to destroy itself by jumping into the 3,000 rpm range after the first clutch engagement, that obnoxious chime that you can't disable when the temp hits 37 degrees.
Oh, and come to find out my "new" car was damaged in transit, repainted, and the damage was not disclosed.
When I called Mitsubishi about the body damage they wouldn't tell me how much they paid the dealer to fix the damage or sanction the dealer for non-disclosure; in fact, they were no help at all.
In my opinion Mitsubishi deserves to go the way of Suzuki and disappear from the American market.

Best Features

Link system.

Worst Features

Don't sell damaged cars as new (didn't Mitsubishi have a problem with that in Japan, too?). Get rid of the rattles. I can read the outside temperature display; get rid of or make it so the consumer can disable the "reminder".

Sorry to hear about your problems - sounds like a bad dealer. I have a 2013 SE model and do not have these rattle problems, nor any problems with the engine racing to high RPMs.
