2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Shortly after introducing its compact Outlander sport utility vehicle, Mitsubishi added the Endeavor, a larger crossover SUV. Similar in size to the automaker's seven-passenger Montero, the midsize Endeavor is intended primarily for on-road motoring. A dual-range transfer case is not included, so offroad capabilities are limited.

For 2007, the Endeavor gets standard side curtain airbags with rollover protection, and an electronic stability system is newly standard on all Endeavors with all-wheel drive. The rear-seat entertainment system, however, has been dropped.

Two trim levels are offered: LS and SE. Each is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. Antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are standard, and exterior and interior styling modifications have been made.


Exterior
The Endeavor has a front end that features a new chrome grille set above a chin-type spoiler. For 2007, the bodyside cladding has been removed, and the LS has body-colored bumpers. SE models get body-colored door handles, side mirrors and rear license plate garnish. Large wheel openings and creased wheel arches are present, as is a rear bumper extension.

The Endeavor rides a 108.3-inch wheelbase and has 8.3 inches of ground clearance. A fully independent suspension and all-disc brakes are utilized. The SUV has 17-inch tires.


Interior
Medium Brown replaces Sand Blast and Black replaces Charcoal as interior color options for 2007. Five people can fit inside the Endeavor. Rear passengers get a 60/40-split, folding backseat. Cargo capacity behind the rear seat is 40.7 cubic feet, which grows to 76.4 cubic feet when the seat is folded down. The back window can open independent of the liftgate.

Cloth seating surfaces are standard, and leather seating surfaces are optional. New for 2007 are numerous option packages that bundle features like satellite radio, a power driver's seat, leather seating surfaces, heated mirrors and a navigation system.


Under the Hood
The Endeavor's 3.8-liter V-6 generates 225 horsepower and 255 pounds-feet of torque. The four-speed automatic transmission incorporates a Sportronic manual-shift provision. Models with all-wheel drive have a viscous coupling. When properly equipped, maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds for all-wheel-drive Endeavors.

Safety
Antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats are standard. For 2007, side curtain airbags with rollover protection are standard in all Endeavors, and models with all-wheel drive get a standard electronic stability system. A tire pressure monitoring system is also new for all Endeavors.

Driving Impressions
Overall, the Endeavor is a surprisingly enjoyable vehicle of manageable size. It handles with a light touch and maneuvers with agility in corners.

The V-6 engine delivers a satisfying burst of power when needed for passing. Mitsubishi's automatic transmission yields prompt, confident responses that are devoid of awkwardness.

Visibility is great all around. Front headroom is good, even in models equipped with a sunroof. The seats are softly cushioned, with only modest bolstering and mediocre support. Backseat space is roomy at the sides and tolerable in the center. Controls are clear and the gauges are easy to read.

Great Truck for the $$$$!!!

by SUV Enthusiast from Boca Raton, FL on September 12, 2011

I wanted to get a decent used full-sized SUV with not too many miles. After much research, I decided to look for a '06-'09 Mitsubishi Endeavor with less than 50K miles. Found an '07 ES model with 44K ... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained

Bumper-to-Bumper

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

Powertrain

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
