What to look for when choosing a Mitsubishi Outlander with a run.
Mitsubis Outlander - the most popular model of the Japanese manufacturer. Despite the great competition in this segment, Outlander remains one of the most popular crossover class "D" in the secondary market. You can endlessly scold Japanese cars for the fact that they do not have the best finishing materials, poor noise isolation and not enough comfortable suspension, but you can not deny the fact that they serve for a long time and do not cause unnecessary trouble.
The quality of paintwork is quite high quality, and even after 4 - 5 years of operation you will hardly find deep scratches on the bodywork and a large number of chips. The body of the car is galvanized and well resists the onslaught of a reddish disease, the foci of corrosion appear only on broken machines. The first sign that the car was involved in the accident and painted, there will be a large and uneven gap between the body and the bumper (after removing the bumper, to install it back, having withstood all the gaps - it is unrealistic). The windshield is afraid of sudden temperature changes, and if in a severe frost it is directed to the flow of warm air, it will most likely burst. The Mitsubishi Outlander XL was equipped with three gasoline atmospheric engines - 2.0, 2.4 (170 hp), 3.0 (220 l .from.). A straight four-cylinder engine, volume 2.0 and 2.4, has a chain drive gas distribution mechanism (the chain needs to be changed after 250,000 km). But the V-shaped six-cylinder "treshka" - is equipped with timing belt drive, with an interval of belt change of 70,000 km run. In general, if we talk about these power units, then all engines up to 300,000 km are practically problem-free. Approximately at 130000 km of run, the oil seals of the crankshaft can start to flow, and if they are not replaced in time, then in the future it will be necessary to change the crankshaft pulley. The first three-liter Outlenders, released before mid-2008, had a small flaw in the firmware of the engine's electronic control unit (the engine responds to the depressing of the gas pedal with a delay of 3 to 6 seconds. The engines, 2.0 and 2.4, are equipped with a five-speed mechanics and a stepless variator; only automatic six-speed automatic transmission, the automatic transmission is quite reliable, and it rarely delivers problems to the owners. it will only be necessary to change oil, once in 60,000 km, and the clutch - every 120,000 km. And here is the variator, it turned out to be the most problematic - many owners complain about extraneous noise out of the box, when running downhill, not famous for the large resource of work and the CVT - the first expensive repair, or even replacement, may be needed after 150 - 170 thousand km of run.
The salons, manufacturers of the Japanese brand of that time, never differed in glaring chic. If you look at the design of the Mitsubishi Outlander of the second generation, then it is difficult to call it exquisite, the emphasis here is clearly on the functionality. After a couple of years of operation, crickets begin to appear in the cabin, and absolutely all the plastic elements creak. At run, more than 100 - 120 thousand in km, because of wear of friction parts, the engine of the stove starts to whistle (replacement will cost $ 100). At machines, with the electric drive of a forward sitting, in the mechanism of a pillow of an armchair there is a backlash. If there is water in the cabin, check if the plug from the oxygen sensor, which is located under the central tunnel, has jumped off. The machines produced before 2008 often fail the audio control buttons located on the steering wheel.
Mitsubishi Outlander has an independent suspension, in front - McPherson, in the rear - mnogorychazhka. This solution is designed to provide better controllability and high stability of the car at high speeds. The construction of the undercarriage and the system of permanent all-wheel drive were borrowed from Mitsubishi Lancer Evoloshin. The suspension has an average working life compared to competitors:
