2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Shortly after introducing its compact Outlander SUV, Mitsubishi added the Endeavor, a larger crossover SUV. Now in its eighth year on the market, the Endeavor received some new styling cues last year to keep it more contemporary. It’s intended primarily for on-road motoring. A dual-range transfer case is not included, so off-road capabilities are limited. The Endeavor’s competition includes the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Murano.

Two trim levels are offered: LS and SE. Front-wheel drive is standard, but SE models are available with all-wheel drive.

New for 2011
Changes this year are relegated mostly to equipment updates. The uplevel SE trim gains a standard navigation system, backup camera and moonroof.

The Endeavor has a front end that features a mesh grille set above a chin-type spoiler. Large wheel openings and creased wheel arches are present. Exterior features include:

  • Fully independent suspension
  • 17-inch wheels on LS,  18-inch wheels on SE
  • Standard fog lights

Up to five people can fit inside the Endeavor. Rear passengers sit in 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. Interior features include:

  • Standard cloth seats; heated leather upholstery optional
  • Standard CD stereo
  • Standard manual air conditioning; automatic climate control optional
  • Standard cruise control
  • Optional Rockford Fosgate six-CD audio system
  • Optional power driver’s seat
  • SE adds touch-screen navigation system, backup camera and moonroof

Under the Hood
The Endeavor comes standard with a 3.8-liter V-6 engine. Mechanical features include:

  • V-6 makes 225 horsepower and 255 pounds-feet of torque
  • Standard four-speed automatic transmission with clutchless-manual mode
  • Maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds with all-wheel drive

Standard safety features include:

  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Side-impact airbags for the front seats
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system

Good car. Few problems.

Have the 2011 se model with a sun roof. The sun roof leaks. Has messed up my headliner. I have tightened it. When you close your doors opens back up. Have 109000 miles burns oil.


We love this vehicle.

We bought our Endeavor in 2016 with 71,000 miles on it and it currently has 132,000 miles. It has taken us to the smoky mountains twice and I have no doubt that it will take us back next year as well. Hoping to get 200,000 miles out of it, but would not be surprised if it goes past that. Maintenance and premium gas has been a little expensive, but the sticker price on the used car was reasonable and somewhat offsets it. Originally, I wanted the car for myself and was going to give my new Fusion to my wife.. but that didn’t go over very well. We share it now and I always look forward to driving it.


Exactly what I needed

I bought my 2011 Endeavor used in 2019 for a camping vehicle and to haul kayaks and my St Bernard. I had the car 2 weeks and it got hit by a 70 foot pine tree in a wind storm (we weren't in it). It held up incredibly well. We rebuilt it and now drive it on a salvage title. It has taken us through SEVERAL states and has climbed large mountains. We have driven it down steep muddy embankments to get to back country camping spots and the AWD does great on snow too. My husband and I have slept in the back with seats folded down and had a good night's sleep (hubby is 6'3" and 240 pounds). We are very pleased with this vehicle's versatility. We use premium gas and get almost 20 mpg. My ONLY complaint is the dashboard squeaks and has done it since I got it but I didn't notice when I test drove it. We haven't figured out what is loose in the dash. My husband and I are well pleased. I've had it 7 months now and regular maintenance has been all it needs, we've put almost 10,000 on it already!
