Great comfortable riding vehicle. I love the heated seats.

The controls in the vehicle - A/C, heat work great.

2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor SE 3.8 from North America

Summary:

Sport, Luxury, and Utility bundled into one affordable vehicle

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong, and no signs of trouble in the near future.

General Comments:

This vehicle is such a pleasure to drive. The suspension is taut, but not truck-like. The steering has nice feel (not too light or heavy). The brakes are responsive and have good feedback. Plenty of power for this size vehicle without going overboard and guzzling gas. Great commanding view of the road.

There's a lot of nice features that were absent from my Cherokee. Cup Holders!! Huge heated side view mirrors. Heated leather seats. The dash lights up with this cool liquid blue back-light. Dome lights and door entry lights that light up when the back doors are opened.

I have 2 young kids in car seats, and the cup holders in the fold-down armrest are at the perfect height for them to reach over and grab their cups.

I just can't say enough good things about this vehicle. Mitsubishi just doesn't get the rave reviews that Toyota and Honda do. I don't understand why. It was actually somewhat hard to find an Endeavor under 2 years old that wasn't a rental vehicle. That tells me that most owners are satisfied with their buy.

2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor XLS Limited 3.8 V6 from Mexico

Faults:

Fantastic car and handles great. Needs wider tires though as it is easy to break traction.

Oil and filter changed at 6000km. Pretty expensive 75.00 USD. They said that it had to be done through them otherwise it would invalidate the warranty.

Sun roof leaks. Had it in 3 times already and they can't seem to adjust it right. There appears to be nothing wrong, they just can't align it. I have since noticed about 10 other Endeavors with this same problem, including my neighbour who has a 2007 and has had it in 3 times too!

General Comments:

Would buy another one definitely. Bought the last 2007 on the lot in Feb 2008 for a 9000 USD discount!

Only problem was the lie from the salesman and service manager that I could have it serviced at Chrysler, as Mitsubishi is an hour highway drive from me, and I live close to a Chrysler dealer, but they won't touch it!

2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor SE 6 cylinder from North America

Summary:

Decent

Faults:

Vehicle quit running on the highway (ie stalled).

General Comments:

Pros: Nice styling, lots of legroom and roomy for both front seat and rear seat occupants.

Lots of room in the back with the seat down.

Great-sounding sound system.

Good price for the size of this vehicle.

Cons: No body-side moldings. Was not even an available option in 2007.

Questionable design on center-console storage box. It is not enclosed on 3 sides on the upper storage part. Divider between upper part of storage box and lower comes off its hinges easily.

Carpeting seems somewhat cheaply made, in that the pile is very thin. (It reminds me more of felt than of carpeting).

Beverage holders should have larger diameter to accommodate larger drink bottles.

"Lighter" outlet (ie auxiliary power outlet) is located in awkward place on center console, rather than on the dash.

No MP3 player connection.

2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS 3.8 V6 from Mexico

Summary:

Best choice of SUV for 5-member families!

Faults:

An annoyance rather than a problem: The right passenger door needs a slightly greater effort to shut than the other doors, the other doors even my 3 year old daughter can close them with no problems.

A leakage in the left rear suspension got us worried, but the dealer fixed it in a breeze under warranty (faulty shock absorber).

General Comments:

What a surprise! This SUV is the sleeper in the category. With the arrival of our third baby we had to get out of sedans and grow a little. We tested every option in the book looking for something both reliable and with enough room so my wife would not have any problems carrying 3 babies into the seats, that disqualified the Toyota RAV4, Nissan X-Trail and Rogue.

American made SUV's like the Equinox and Jeep Liberty had very bad reliability record, and the bigger SUV's were out of reach.

The Endeavor handles like a car, the steering is very sharp and I love the riding quality. Parking and driving around town is very easy, and a what a big help the huge folding external mirrors provide! They're awesome!

Inside the interior is very quiet and extremely roomy. The back seat can take three baby seats with no problem and my wife loves the fact that after the two older babies are released from their seats, they just slip by and can walk upright to the edge of the door without her lifting them from their seats. Talk about making Mom's life easier!

Front seats are huge, and unless you're over 7 feet tall and have to push them back all the way, the back seat has a tremendous leg room, a fact my boss appreciated (he's 6'4") when we went out the other day.

Fuel consumption is average, but a lot better than that of the Chevy Trailblazer, specially in the city (I know because at my job, every owner of a 6-cylinder Trailblazer complains about the fuel).

A funny thing is that despite all the creases of the body around the fenders and hood, the truck is very easy to wash.

Our only unfulfilled desire with the Endeavor is that we couldn't get the color we wanted (Dark Metallic Grey), so we settled with Dove White and turned out even better, it takes a lot of dirt for the truck to look soiled.
