The contact owns a 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor. The contact shifted into park, turned off the vehicle, and removed the keys from the ignition, but the vehicle began to roll backwards. He had to start the ignition while it was rolling and apply the brakes in order to stop the vehicle. The vehicle crashed into another vehicle during the failure. Afterwards, he attempted to place the vehicle into drive, but the vehicle would not move. The vehicle was finally able to move thirty minutes later. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer, but they could not remedy the issue. A police report was filed and there were no injuries. The current mileage was 49,685 and failure mileage was 49,616.

Endeavor 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
1. my 2005 Endeavor has 11,000 kms, covered by the warranty (it has less than a year since I bought it. Lst Friday I was driving normally to my work when I felt thumps and if it were pulling back and forth. I don't know how but I managed to park, and when I did something under it ripped off and a huge spot of oil appeared. It leaked all the transmission fluid on the pavement. This could have been lethal if it were on a road, according to the mechanic. Now Mitsubishi refuses to recognize warranty. The cause was a broken hose of transmission fluid which caused the leakage.
