2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor Overview

By Cars.com Editors
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.

Exterior
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

Interior
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 ...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

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.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

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.

What is included in 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).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

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.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
