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.

Mitsubishi Outlander Recalls
2013 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport vehicles are being recalled because the brake lamps may illuminate continuously, or not at all. The shift lever could also be moved out of Park (P) without depressing the brake pedal. If the brake lights do not come on when braking this could increase the risk of a rear end collision. If the shift lever is moved out of park when the brake pedal is not depressed, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly. Dealers will make sure the brake light switch is properly installed to correct this concern.
Mitsubishi is recalling the 2013 Outlander Sport AWD because they may have been assembled without a fuel sending unit wire harness for the secondary sending unit. This can result in a false fuel tank level reading. If the fuel gauge were to indicate fuel available while driving when the tank is empty, the engine would stall increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install the proper fuel sending unit wire harness to correct this concern.
A check valve in the power brake booster may stick and cause the brake pedal to be harder than usual, usually after the vehicle has been shut off and then restarted. This may lead to longer stopping distances, which may create a safety hazard. Dealers will replace the brake booster check valve. The Mitsubishi recall number is SR-09-002. This recall began in April, 2009.
Mitsubishi Outlander Reviews
I have 264K miles on mine. I had my first breakdown, on the road last summer. Water Pump. Amazing vehicle. Smooth ride, no rattle or shakes yet. 6 sets of tires, 2 radiator fans (squirrels chewed 1st replacement) The only issue is the heater switch and it just broke off a month ago. Need to fix that this spring. It's been the best car ever.
I bought my Mitsubishi Outlander with 39,000 miles on it from a dealer. It's one of the best vehicles I have ever owned and I've owned many. The only thing I had to replace aside from maintainence (Brakes, Tires) was the radiator. Other than that, it has 125,000 miles on it now. BUT the blower motor just stopped working. I have yet to see why. Checked all of the fuses and they are all good.
Despite my heating and ac blower quit working yesterday when it was 85 degrees....I love my outlander...its so fun to drive....perfect size....great gas mileage, and high enuff off the ground to not be like a car, but low enuff you don't have to have a step up to get in :) thanks
