Default Re: The Last Warrior...My Outtie - Mitsubishi Outlander

Hello There,

How is the Outlander treating you?

I am looking to buy a used one, am just a little concerned with the spare part prices.

Just as a comparison how much are the oil filter,air filter,fuel filter.I just want to check how expensive are they as compared to Grand Vitara?

I have heard that the CVT is very sensitive as CVT's work best for cars < 2L engine. How many kms have you clocked and did you find any change in the transmission behaviour?

Thanks

Outlander is doing its duty quite well, have been to Himalayas at least 7-8 times and not even a single squeak. I have done 45000 Kms, no issues with CVT at all. Car has performed in toughest situation so absolutely no complaints. I pay around 3500 for 1 service and around 8500 for 2nd service every year (2nd service is costly due to expansive synthetic gear oil.

Planning to sale the car now since it has completed 5 years, may go in for new Q7. Cheers.

Could you please shed some light on how easy it would be to maintain an outlander? I'm getting some 2010 / 2011 models with 50 - 65k kms on the ODO and was vaguely interested in picking up one. I'm concerned at Mitsu's very thin dealer network and generally lacklustre performance overall as a company in India.

Are getting spares and parts over the 5th - 8th years of the car going to be a problem (given that it'll be 5 years old already if I buy it today)

If I buy it I'd like to keep it for 2.5 - 3.5 years. Any concerns with owning a 2010 / 11 model with that kind of ownership outlook?

Thanks

Dear, I also bought the used outlander and was very concerned about the maintainence and reliability of the same.Mr Rishi Kapoors feedback gave me a lot of confidence and I bought a pre loved one last June. I have driven it 4000kms and I am really impressed with the vehicle. The only thing is driven conventional automatics before this cvt equipped vehicle takes some time getting used to. The initial acceleration is sluggish, thats the only downside I felt, plus the cvt uses special oil which costs 10,000/- for 8litres but is replaced after 60-80,000kms.

Other than this I am another satisfied owner of the suv. Mitsu is very reliable touch wood!!

After 60000 KMs and 6 years of absolutely fantastic ownership, I had to say my Outlander good bye. Good part is that I passed it on to another enthusiast.

I will buy another Mitsubishi as and when they launch Montero again.

Till then, Mods please close this thread.

You have any dope on the launch? The new [the existing as well as the upcoming] Pajero simply doesn't appeal the way the SFX/GLX did or the Montero does.

Thanks

The Montero is open to booking now; launching in the next 2-3 months I think.

btw My outlander is closing in on the 70K service. Eager to know if the CVT change is at 70K or 80K. So far, its been an absolute pleasure. Normal service cost around 6K. Recently got a flying gravel put a minute crack on the windshield on Bangalore Highway. Showroom quoting upwards of 35K for replacement, but a local guy claims he can do for 12K. Since its really small and doesnt seem to need an immediate replacement, I'm gonna wait it out and go in for the 70K service first

Just completed 1.2 lakh on my Outlander, rear suspension is gone and needs to be replaced, any recommendation for an after market piece, dealership will take time to procure one and i don't intend to ride it for long on a broken leg.

Try searching on eBay or Amazon. You should get it at a much reasonable rate as compared to service center
