2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor Problems
The automatic transmission may develop a 2-3 shift flair. This is commonly caused by an internal fault related to the reverse clutch assembly. Replacement of the rear housing and reverse clutch assembly may be required to correct this concern.
The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to one or more engine vacuum leaks. Our technicians tell us these leaks can be caused by damage to seals and/or vacuum hoses as a result of to much ethanol content in the gasoline. Affected hoses and seals must be replaced to correct this concern.

2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor Recalls
The attachment for the left fuel tank mounting strap may have been improperly formed, causing the metal to split. In the event the fuel tank is full and the vehicle is involved in a severe collision, the attachment bracket may break, allowing the fuel tank to drop down and possibly causing a fuel leak. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the mounting bracket and perform repairs as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on September 20, 2008. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-08-005.
The ignition key interlock cable may allow the interlock cam to fall forward, allowing the key to be removed from the ignition when the gearshift lever is not in the park position. If this occurs when the park brake is not applied, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and perform the required repairs. This recall is expected to begin July 7, 2008.
On certain sport utility vehicles the front disk brake caliper may crack due to improper metallurgy. This will result in the loss of braking and a potential accident. The dealer will inspect and replace the caliper free of charge. The Mitsubishi recall # is SR-06-001

This car has been so good to us! I have a feeling I'm about to experience my first emotional attachment to a vehicle. I dread the day when we will need to replace it.... and can only HOPE the later models have the same quality and reliability.
