2005 Mitsubishi Outlander Problems
The heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) temperature control knob may be hard to turn. Mitsubishi Motors has released a service bulletin out outlining the necessary repairs. Repairs involve installing a new air blend door lever and link, lubing the blend door track, and installing a filter on top of the blower motor housing to prevent entry of dirt and debris. If the temperature control assembly has been damaged it will require replacement also.
Erratic HVAC blower motor operation may be caused by a failed blower motor and/or blower motor resistor. Our technicians tell us that if the blower motor resistor fails the blower motor should be checked. If the blower motor fails its functional test in should be replaced along with the failed blower motor resistor.
An engine overheating condition may develop due to a failed radiator cooling fan controller. The failed controller should be replaced to correct this issue.

2005 Mitsubishi Outlander Reviews
I bought my 2005 outlander brand new. it has 72, 000 miles and outside of the maintenace per schedule, I have not had not one problem with my car. Excellent manueverability, very comfortable and esthetically pleasing to the eye. It's just a tad under powered. would ve been better with a V-6 but who's complaining.
