2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor Review

By

Mitsubishi's crossover entry is more highway cruiser than rugged off-road truck but, given how most SUV owners use their vehicles, it actually makes quite a sensible choice. With room for five, a versatile and ample cargo hold and a powerful V6 engine, the Endeavor has all the attributes to compete in this class, and its stylish exterior may appeal to those unimpressed by more pedestrian offerings.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a tough- and rugged-looking crossover that doesn't guzzle gas and feel top-heavy in turns, a vehicle like the Endeavor should suit your needs.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need the added capacity a third-row seat provides, the Endeavor won't work for you. The Endeavor cannot tow as much as a truck-based SUV, nor is it designed for serious off-road use.

What's Significant About This Car?

Endeavor models equipped with all-wheel drive receive Active Skid and Traction Control (ASTC), while side-curtain airbags become standard on both the LS and SE trim levels. A navigation system is now offered, but only on the upscale SE model.

Driving the Endeavor

Driving Impressions The Endeavor tracks straight and true, with no play felt in the direct and responsive steering. Its sleek shape also seems to be immune to strong crosswinds and buffeting. Around...

town, the Endeavor's modest size translates into easy parking and maneuverability, and even the shortest drivers will find they have not only a commanding view of the road, but also good visibility all the way around.

Mitsubishi's impressive Sportronic Sequential-Shift automatic transmission is standard on the Endeavor, allowing you the option of selecting your own gear changes without the need for a clutch pedal. Another especially nice feature is the incorporation of small triangular front A-pillar windows that allow you to see people and objects that might otherwise be blocked from view by the thick windshield pillars.
Favorite Features

Blue Dash Lighting
The Endeavor's neat blue dash lighting has a hip, youthful appeal.

Handy Power Outlets
You shouldn't have a problem finding places to plug in your accessories; the Endeavor features four 12-volt power outlets.

A look inside the Endeavor reveals a modern, clean interior with seating for five and a wide rear cargo area. The dash is rather pronounced, with a strong center section that stands out and is flanked by two wing-like vents. In the center of the console are the climate and audio controls, as well as an LCD graphic display screen that shows various functions and information and the optional DVD navigation. The large cargo area can be expanded by folding down one or both rear-seat backs.

Exterior

With its chiseled good looks and tall body, the Endeavor stands apart from the mundane "overgrown station wagon" crowd. It has a bold look that is pure SUV, yet under its bulging flanks resides a two-wheel-drive unit-body platform shared with the new Galant sedan.

Optional Equipment

"I owned this car for 7 years and never had any major problems with it. Would buy another one if Mitsubish was still making them. The Outlander is too small and has a generic body style. I loved the sporty look and size of the Endevor. I'm gonna miss it but it is time to move on. I am giving this to my 16 year old because it is just what he needs and I know it will last another 70,000 miles."

Best Vehicle I have ever owned.

"This is a vehicle Mitsubishi should have continued to build. Had I known they were not going to sell any longer I would have purchased another one. I bought the 2004 and it was the first year. Never have had any issues with this vehicle. LOVE this Endeavor."

"Very fun and exciting vehical to drive and haven't not had any thing major wrong with it. My parents bought it used in 2010 and I just recently bought it off them. I feel like the gas mileage is a little low compared to other vehicles in its segment, but it is a great vehical. I still wish they were made because I would want to buy a new one in the future."

"I have driven to Idaho and Oregon on camping trips and got great mileage. Only had to change couple of injectors and a battery. It still looks great and drives great. Only bad thing is a slight pull to the right if I really try to accelerate hard but you get use to it. I have owned four Mitsubishi's they are very underrated, will not get rid of this Endeavor. Sorry they made a mistake by dropping this great mid size SUV from their line."

"I loved driving this vehicle, and drove it for 5 yrs and 205,000 miles for business. We then purchased the car from my company when I got a new vehicle because my wife enjoyed driving it so much and we knew her miles would be way less than mine. We are finally getting another vehicle for her but this one still runs great at 232,000 miles. Too bad they stopped making them. I think this product was seriously undermarketed. I know others that have Endeavors and just love them."

"I hate to sell this SUV. I wanted to keep it because it has been a wonderful automobile. Could not ask for better mileage. I live in a very cold place and this car has never failed me. it now has 120000 miles on it and with regular maintenance it is still running very well. To be honest, I wish I had not talked myself into purchasing a new care."
