Comfortable and Reliable Towing vehicle

Bought my fully loaded FWD Limited Endeavor w/ tow package in august of 2003. Now has 214,000 miles, yes, 214,000. It has been driven through new york winters, potholes, most of the time with an overloaded trailer. had minor problems along the way including an ac leak in the passenger footwell, the radio was replaced under warranty, ac sensors went before 200000 miles which to me isnt a big deal and other minor things, but mechanically has been a complete gem considering the large amount of abuse i have put it thru including once towing a 6500 LB boat, and another time a small toyota celica from pennsylvania thru mountains. Made a family trip to South Carolina and back no issues. Seems to handle everything i throw at it without much trouble. Still sounds like new except in wintertime on coldstarts there is a loud rattle which ceases when the thing warms up. This vehicle is very easy to drive, drives like a car, very stylish, love the HUGE sunroof, heated seats are Toasty warm in winters and has good visibility and safety features. Blue gauges and silver center stack are, in my opinion, very modern and stylish and I would describe the interior as rugged and luxurious. Road noise on the highway can get annoying but I'm really nitpicking, turn on the excellent Infinity stereo. Gas mileage is decent but mitsubishi reccomends premium fuel. Regardless, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this car. Will buy another after this thing dies if it ever does! I also have a GMC envoy which needs a new transmission after only 72000 miles because it lacks a auxilary transmission cooler for towing. Mitsubishi makes a great product for a great value. Quality rivaling honda and toyota at a much more reasonable cost. As others have mentioned, its really a diamond in the rough.

This is the second Endeavor that i have Owned,I brought the first one in 2004 and put 59,000 miles on it, before it was totaled in a crash, never had a spot of trouble with it in the entire 59,000 miles, in fact i was so pleased with it, i wanted another one. i went to cars.com and found another one 2004 with only 17,000 miles I purchased it and now have 50,000 no trouble miles on it.iam a salesman for a flooring company in Arizona, and i would buy exactly the same car again, if they had not stopped making them.

I use to own a 2004 Endeavor bought brand new only got rid of it because the family grew, and it's great if your short or medium height but if your tall and you have your kids sitting behind you, forget it-Your not going to fit comfortably. Other than that great SUV that handles great on any weather condition AWD or 2WD snow or no snow. Plenty of cargo space (can fit 4' x 8' whole sheet of sheetrock or plywood in the back with seats folded down). Travel very well in it for hours at a time. Great pick up off a stop and for the price you can't go wrong. Never had a problem with mine only had to replace the battery after 5yrs of owning it.

I own a 2004 Endeavor XLS. I have had mostly no trouble with the vehicle except there is a known problem with the "sway bars" on the suspension system. Have been told by several garages that it is well known to this type of vehicle and of course, they are a special order item and VERY EXPENSIVE. So beware for if/when yours go also, it also then wears down your breaks, calipers, tires, etc., until you replace them and then you are in for a HUGE bill also! I do love the vehicle though!

We drove several of the Mid Size SUVs and found the Endeavor to be fit us the best. Nice features, comfortable ride. I was impressed with how it handled and acceleration with the V6. My wife is about 5'4" tall loves the way it drives. She very comfortable in it as well as myself. I'm 6' and can strech my legs completely out. The Endeavor is VERY spacous for a Mid Size SUV.

i love my Endeavor its very stylish yet unique. i have the LS model and even for a low end model its very well equiped. my parents bought me this car becuase of the safty features. it has very minimum engine noise inside and the ride is great almost like driving a sadan which is great. one of the main reasons i like it is becuase its very spacious for me being 6'3" i dont like to be cramed in something. and i like the fact that the LS FWD does not have ABS. and the powerful 3.8 engine has great get up and go. but the main downfall is that there are not very many after market products. but other then that i love driving it and when it comes time for another car i will buy another one...

Great SUV!!

by from Phoenix, AZ on October 4, 2007

I bought my Endeavor in May 2004. Great mileage, very peppy, stereo is wonderful and it looks good. Only complaint is the information center is hard to read during the day with the headlights on.
