Don't do it

The car looks nice but that's where the positives end. It's unreliable, cheaply made, falls apart and full of mechanical issues. To add injury to insult the "warranty" is worthless because Mitsubishi famous line is "known issue no known repair " so for over a year I've had a faulty fuel pump, rear differential and air conditioner.


Stay away

I have had my 2022 Outlander for just 2 years now. I hate it. I have had 6 recalls on it. Which takes me taking a day off work to get them fixed. This past winter (alberta, canada) so -40c I had power surges or it would just die. Dealership told me because it’s running so many computers at once and all the time that it drains the battery. (Never had the issues the first winter I had it) Had to install a battery tender on my brand new suv so I would be able to drive my suv. Now just got an oil change and they say they can smell coolant….. no leaks,,,,, so hopefully they fix that issue too. The service department is absolutely horrible to deal with. Also tires are worn right down, I only have 39,000km, with 99% of my driving on highway. No way should the tired that came with the vehicle be worn down that bad


I love it

I love my outlander I have the 2022 Launch edition. I've had it since May of 2021 drove it from Florida to Ohio without issue.


Mitsubishi Warranty is a myth

I have this car for less than two years. The rubber frame of back passenger window came out of its frame. In fact the upper side of frame came out. They told me it's not covered by warranty because they can't see any manufacturing defect. The also told me that they can't see how it happened. And because it's not a common issue, it shouldn't be a manufacturing defect. It's a super clean car with no scratches. I even keep it in my garage when it's cold. So don't get fooled by their warranty. What other companies offer under the name "recall", Mitsubishi offers with the name warranty.


I am the best reviewer ever.

First the bad. Remote start is through an app only. So instead of simply pressing a button on a fob you get the enhanced experience of waiting for the slow poke app to load. Then it's a 50/50 chance the app has logged you out since yesterday so go ahead and log back in. Now you can select start. But before it starts you have to acknowledge the "are you certain" prompt. After touching yes odds are it'll start. Unless it doesn't. Sometimes the app will notify tell you that it didn't. Other times you'll find out when you go outside and the windows are still frosted and the engine is cold. I could start, stop, start, stop, start, stop my other car in less time. But the app service is free. But only for two years. Oh, if you attempt to contact Mitsubishi through the contact page on their official website hear's the likely response: . INext, in a year and a half I've found one aftermarket company that makes an engine air filter for it. And I'm glad I did because OE Mitsubishi maintenance bits and fluids are, in my opinion, pricey. Minor annoyances are the side mirrors don't always extend and if the radio is off when driving it'll turn on when the engine is shut off, then turn off when the door is opened. And the floating iPad on the dash can't be turned off. It may be darkened but it still glows like a dim black light bulb. The Good. The car is mostly good. Comfy, quiet, good safety tech, all that stuff. Best seat heaters I've experienced. Driving position, visibility, good. Power is typical for the class. Exterior styling has drawn compliments and a few parking lot Q&A sessions. Excellent warranty. I'd buy it again if they'd discount it the cost of an aftermarket remote start install.



I have the 2022 Mitsubishi Outlander SE, and the only issue is the electrical system will turn off the display for a few seconds then it comes back on. The performance is awesome, and the power is great for a 2.4 ltr engine.


Look elsewhere

The design is extremely nice, inside and out. Very comfortable seats, soft leather, easy to use display. The safety features for the price are the main reason we decided on the Outlander as we intend to pass it down to our new driver next year. What we didn’t know is that the software and app, through which many of these features operate, is complete crap. We’ve needed the software re-installed at the dealer twice (we’ve owned it five months) and the ONLY time the app has worked was the first time it was used at the dealership. If you are purchasing based on any of the features “available through the app,” just consider those unavailable. The display, too, as it randomly goes black and won’t work due to software issues. The middle row will comfortably seat two teens or adults - three have a hard time buckling the seatbelts. The third row is for little kids or tiny adults who don’t need to fit there for long. I spent hours researching this vehicle and feel like we were mislead in a lot of areas.


Shame on Mitsubishi

Very bad car, within2 years 37000 mileage end up with a faulty radio and must be replaced with a price of $3200, please name other car manufacturers have this issue . Do not make the mistake of buying this car


Lots of great stuff and some not so much!

Purchased a new 2022 Outlander SEL S-AWC with the touring package. It has many great features and is a very comfortable vehicle. The layout of everything is convenient. I love the Bose stereo and 2 tone interior. The interior materials are good quality and have a nice appearance. The drive is very quiet and fuel economy is decent. There are a few things that I think are "short sighted" in the design. The heated steering wheel/heated seats. Nice features but they constantly turn off. They turn on when you remote start using My Mitsubishi Connect, but turn off as soon as you enter the vehicle and start driving. Very annoying! S-AWC is also annoying. We have lots of cold and snow. Every time you turn off the vehicle, the driving mode resets. You get back in and need to change the driving mode in addition to turning on the seats and steering wheel. Make a trip to the bank, get back in the vehicle, the seats are off, the steering wheel is off, and the drive mode is reset. Then go to the grocery store. Come out and repeat the process. Every other vehicle I have owned was capable of remembering settings. It is disappointing that Mitsubishi could not figure that out. The thing I absolutely hate: Mitsubishi does not offer remote start from the key fob. They have an app called My Mitsubishi Connect. It is their version of remote start. It is sold as more "convenient" because you can do it from your phone. The app is very unstable and fails more often than it works. There are many features in the app. Same story over and over. The features fail more often than they work. The "recommended solution" is uninstall the app and reinstall it. My morning routine became unlock my phone. Open the app. Put in a passcode. Navigate through the app to find the remote start because it is not conveniently located. Press the button to use the remote start and get prompted to put in your passcode again. Then answer the prompt asking if it is parked in a safe place. Next you get to wait and wait and wait for it to respond. It can take anywhere from a few seconds to a several minutes. It might work. It might fail. The app also locks/freezes until you receive a notification. When you get a fail message, it allows you to go to a help screen which provides ZERO help! Other recommendations I found in addition to reinstall the app include clearing your phone cache and restarting your phone. Sometimes the uninstall and reinstall work, the others have not. I have read many of the same complaints about the app online. Mitsubishi charges $14.95 a month for the app. If you don't pay the ransom, Mitsubishi will not let you use the remote start functionality that they charge you for when you buy the vehicle. I went to the dealer to see what other options there were. Seems the dealer also knows the app is a problem. For somewhere in the neighborhood of $650(ish), they can install a Mitsubishi remote starter that allows you to avoid the app. I contacted a local car stereo shop. For less than half the cost the local shop can install one with a lifetime guarantee. The new Outlander is a really nice looking vehicle. The options are great. The drive is comfortable and there are lots of nice features. Mitsubishi did a great job upgrading the Outlander but missed the mark with many common sense things. They also get a 100% fail on My Mitsubishi Connect.


No hay técnicos que corrijan la situación.

Tengo problema de ruido cuando giro las gomas del frente y problema con la cámara trasera. La presión de aire de los neumáticos en el tablero no concuerdan. Etcétera.....
