It hesitates on take off, drivers window is stuttering. Had electrical system flash on and off, time of day changes to daylight saving by itself, pulls to the right upon braking. Acceleration is awful. Jerks while changing gears. Most of this is at stopping, or taking off from stop. City driving. On cold mornings it also rides hard on wheels and highway is hesitant. Try's to stall. At 70 miles a hour. Does not heat car adequately. This at 20 degrees.

When trying to pull away from stop vehicle just stops engine still running it just wont go. Vehicle was taken in for the computer flash seemed to help but then started doing it again. This is dangerous can easily be rearended. It has happened when turning or straight but always after stopping then pulling away from stop. Bought vehicle with just over 2000 miles we suspect the prior owner had same problem.

Vehicle would not respond after stopping it would start to go then hesitate and stop. We could have been hit by oncoming traffic it did go after continually pressing depressing accelerator. Vehicle has done this 4 times you never know when it might happen. It has only happened after stopping then attempting to go again engine is running fine prior to and after it goes again. Vehicle has only 3000 miles on it.

Several instances where acceleration failed momentarily were followed by a recall. Several weeks after the issue was 'corrected", acceleration failed to generate a speed past 30 mph for a few moments, then 25 mph, and I barely managed to get back at home at no more than 20 mph. Every time I stepped on the gas, it caused acceleration to decrease until I stopped and coasted at 20.

I filed a complaint before and not sure how long they stay on this website but I no longer have my vehicle it was "repo" on 11.11.15 and was going to auction on 11.26.15 - who ever bought this vehicle needs to know it is a lemon. I have all the paperwork to prove it. Please be very careful when driving this vehicle.

The car stutters and jerks to accelerate when gas is pressed from a stopped position at traffic light. This has happened several times, called the dealer and they haven't heard of the issue. Have not had time to stop in. Seems like this is an ongoing problem, in fact, I believe one review from motor trend witnessed a similar issue "additionally, the cvt would stutter or hesitate when gently modulating the gas pedal when heavy freeway traffic required constant adjustment, a characteristic not noted during our tenure in the 2011 model on the same road trip or at any other times." www.motortrend.com/cars/2015/Mitsubishi/outlander_sport/ I'm going to call the other dealer near me and ask.
