2006 Mitsubishi Raider Owner Comments

Raider 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,000 miles


Vehicle: 2006 Mitsubishi Raider pickup truck failure: Automatic transmission shifts out of gear spontaneously. Description: On occasion, when initiating movement in forward or reverse gear, the vehicle will begin to move in the desired direction, then the gear selection lever will spontaneously move into the "neutral" position, disengaging the transmission. This results in a vehicle that either coasts (based on its momentum) or rolls in the direction determined by the grade of the road/ driving surface.

Powertrain: Automatic transmission while driving on a speed of about 65-75 mph on the freeway/interstate and all of a sudden I have to slow down by stepping on the brake and then releasing the brake to continue moving again after the speed goes down to about 35-45 mph, the "check engine" light comes on and you can hear the engine revving like it is stuck on third gear instead of shifting to fourth gear. I have been to an authorized Napa auto repair shop and the code they found out was a sensor problem. They changed the sensor and sure enough gone again but the "check" engine light came on again while I was climbing up on a slope that is stepping on the gas a little bit more to be able to climb the slope. Went back to the same Napa auto repair shop and this time it is still the same problem. They asked me to drive it some more just in case the check engine light disappears again and it did. Now I am scared of driving it anymore unless I have to for fear of anything worse happens. I bought this truck in 2008 with about 35K on the odometer and bought it with "as is" conditions. I could not afford a newer and better truck so I am stuck with this one. I have now 48K miles on the odometer since July, 2008. The Napa auto repair shop said that the next thing they could try is getting a used transmission or even a new transmission but would not be able to guarantee if it won't happen again.

Bought a 2006 mitsibushi Raider broke down the first day I took it home. Should have told them to shove it then. I had a friend that worked there and trusted her that they would fix the problem. Got the truck back and the whole speedometer broke. It wouldn't go into drive or park. Just sit there like it was in neutral. I drove more rental cars and cars off their lot than I probably have drove the truck. It continues to do the same thing over and over again. I believe the last count was 15 times in the shop for the same thing. Everyone keeps telling me you have a warranty don't worry about it. Well it's aggravating when it keeps messing up and you don't have it to begin with because its in the shop. I was rear ended and side swipe so now they want to say that is why I'm having problems and don't want the truck. I didn't want it before but got the run around. I don't pay good money for something that is a piece of ?!@#$%.

Raider 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles
: the contact stated after starting the vehicle, there was a loud noise while shifting into drive. Later while driving 70 mph on normal dry roads, the vehicle engine stalled. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer who determined that the gear box was faulty, and that it was a common problem. There were no repairs made.
