Endeavor 6-cyl

  • 111,667 miles


After driving my 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor over the past few years I had a gas leak that I thought was stranger while fueling my SUV. It turned out to fall under the recall for my SUV. I had this problem long before the recall was issued.lord only knows how much gas I lost at the pump that I will never get back... but I recently had a problem with my front rotors I had a Mitsubishi dealer inspect my entire SUV for any and everything else that could be wrong..just the other day I went to stop at a red signal and my SUV did brake but only for a second it started to slide forward as I lost braking power in my front brakes I heard a big pop and a clank as I applied my brakes and halfway slid through the light after the light turned green I drove a ways down the road and was hearing the clank sound and it felt as if the front tires were trying to catch on something I thought it might have been the calibers or the brake pads. I pulled into the closest gas station to see what had happened. The pads were fine the tires were fine and everything looked ok no brakes fluid leaking the calibers were fine... I slowly drove/coasted my SUV to a friend's home going about five to ten miles an hour. I took off the driver side front tire to see if indeed it was the brake pads or calibers as I was taking off the tire I noticed that the rotor had split in half. Like separating two plates at that point I called a licensed mechanic and he stated it sound like a defect in the rotors Iżve had these rotors on the SUV since Iżve had it and it was checked out by a dealers service center before this had happened. I wondered since my SUV had to go through the recall of the fuel filler for SUV in the North for salt and snow that would corroded my fuel filler would it be the same for the rotors if they were to have a special kind of rotors for my SUV used in the North during winter, I was told it was a good thing I hadn't been traveling at higher rate of speed it could have been worse.

We own a 2004 Mitsubishi Endeavor with 90,000 mile S on. The problem we are having is brake related and as occurred 6-7 times the last 5-6 months - its doesn't occur all the time its intermittent and only after car sits for a period of time usually over nite. The problem is the when the brakes are first applied there's a slow response time for them to work and the pedal has to be depressed very hard or pumped. We first noticed this after thanksgiving of last year the problem repeated till in March when I had a local auto service shop look at the problem (ase master certified ) - he couldn't find a problem but machine font rotors thinking that might be the problem - a few weeks later the problem occurred again. Thats when I contacted the local Mitsubishi dealer and explained the problem to him explained it hi in delai - he said it might be brake pads and replaced them - however shortly there after the problem happened again and my wife just missing rear ending the truck in front of her. I again called the Mitsubishi dealer - explained things again to them - this was after I contacted the Corp. Customer service center of Mitsubishi - she said to take it back into them - we did - they stated the couldn't find any problem. I am becoming quite concerned about this safety issue and would like to know what my next steps re in solving this situation and my legal rights. Im extremely concerned about injuries here - please advice.

Replacing front and back pads every 5K - 8K miles. Replaced front and back rotors twice in 100K. Replacing front and back calipers one in 100K. Replacing calipers pins both front and back every time pads were replaced. Turns out because of poor engineering and design the calipers pins collect moisture and corrode causing them to freeze up and not allowing calipers to perform properly, in turn the calipers are restricted, ruining the rotors and eat up the pads.
