Warranty

The Outlander comes with a bumper-to-bumper warranty good for five years or 60,000 miles. IntelliChoice has given the 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander an award for lowest repair costs in its class. Plus, its powertrain warranty beats Toyota and Honda with longer coverage: 10 years or 100,000 miles. Twenty-four-hour emergency roadside assistance with free towing to the nearest authorized Mitsubishi retailer for warranty-related repairs is available for five years and an unlimited number of miles.

Those interested in purchasing an earlier model year of the Outlander should note that Mitsubishi has recalled some 2007 and 2008 Outlanders due to a malfunction that might prevent the brake lights from turning on. A defect notice filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration explains, "The stop lamp switch of the subject vehicles may have been contaminated with silicone grease during vehicle assembly. If the contamination is sufficient, the contact points may become coated with silicone oxide and not allow the brake lamps to be operative," which "will not provide warning to following traffic and could result in a crash."
