2018 Mitsubishi Outlander Owner Comments

problem #5

Nov 032019

Outlander GT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


After my first claim to the dealer service department the rear breaks worn out with only 12,000 miles. I change my driving habits to see if there is something to do to avoid changing rear break pads every 12,000 miles. I take my vehicle to the Mitsubishi Service Department because of a noise on the rear breaks. The technician indicate that the break pads are worn out and the caliper rubber protector is broken. My vehicle only have one year of use and 25,000 miles.

Outlander ES 2.4L

  • CVT transmission
  • 10,850 miles

I bought the car into the dealer where I purchased the car from for a recall for rear seatbelt, oil change tire rotation and NYS inspection. I got a call from the shop saying my right rear outside brake pad was worn down to 2mm, all other pads are fine, and he also stated that the caliper was fine but the rotor on that side was pitted and rusted.

They spoke with the Mitsubishi district rep and said that they will only pay for the brake pads but that I would have to pay for new rotors and all the labor at a cost of about $450. I research this issue and find that I am not the only one with the problem, and also find out the rotors for the car have been discontinued and replaced with what looks like an improved rotor (coated to prevent rusting and pitting problem) looks like I'm doing my own brakes for less than half the cost and a better product by using the Extreme drilled and slotted upgrade. I had them on my volvo and they performed way better and with no problems.

Outlander GT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles

I bought my car July 31, 2018, 0 miles vehicle Mitsubishi Outlander GT 2018. When the vehicle was about 6 month of use the rear brake start to sound. When I take my vehicle to the Mitsubishi Service Department and the rear brake pads was worn out with only 12,000 miles. They claim that is my driving habits was what causes the premature worn of the brake pad. I told them that my last car I change rear brake pad at 60,000 miles with the same driving habits they alleged. At the end, I pay for the pads and the warranty pay for the disk repair and installation.

Outlander GT V6

  • Automatic transmission

This is too annoying in just 8 months second brake set. I think there must be poor quality brae pads and company should have a recall.
