2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport review: Our expert's take


What it is: The Outlander Sport is Mitsubishi's smallest SUV. It's a compact crossover with room for five that’s available with a choice of two four-cylinder engines. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the Outlander Sport competes with small SUVs such as the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4 and Hyundai Tucson.


The Outlander Sport's grille gets a slight update, and a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system is now standard. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity go in SE and SEL trim levels. A new Touring Package for the top-of-the-line SEL trim includes forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning, automatic high-beam headlights, a Rockford Fosgate premium stereo and a panoramic moonroof.

🚫 Transmission Fails 🚫

This was the first new car I had ever bought in my life. I took out loan for $28,000 to learn that the transmission would fail me at 133,000 miles. Of course the powertrain warranty ended at 125,000!😫. Not only that, but the dealership I bought it from claims "Home of the Lifetime Warranty ". But guess, what...not for me. I did everything they told me to do in regards to maintaining a record of all maintenance performed on the vehicle. They wouldn't honor my lifetime warranty because I was not able to locate a receipt for a bottle of transmission fluid! Dealership is asking $10,000 to fix it for me. I don't know how to dig myself out of this hole. What joke! Thanks Mitsubishi 🀨
