How reliable is a Mitsubishi Outlander?

Are Mitsubishi Outlanders reliable cars? I’m surprising my husband with a new car but I want to make sure that whatever I buy will last for a long time and won’t need tons of repairs.

It’s so sweet of you to surprise your husband with a new car! The
Mitsubishi Outlander
is considered to be pretty reliable and lasts an average of 200,000 to 220,000 miles. The average annual cost of ownership is $519, which is quite low!
Of course, every car will need repairs eventually. The most common issues with the Outlander include:
  • Premature brake wear
  • Air conditioning issues
  • Transmission failure
Some of these problems are more common in specific model years, so be sure to research different years before you choose your Outlander.
Don’t forget that you’ll need insurance for the new car, too! Check out the
