Those who own or lease a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUV may find themselves facing a wide range of transmission issues. Several complaints have emerged in recent months, detailing many instances of vehicles that struggle to travel at the proper speed or whose transmissions overheat quickly and often. Mitsubishi has yet to issue a recall to address these issues, so consumers are left wondering what they can do to fix these chronic transmission problems.
One owner reported that a warning light suddenly illuminated while the vehicle was traveling along at a speed of 45 mph, indicating that the vehicle was overheating. After pulling to the side of the road, the driver waited for almost an hour until the light finally turned off, allowing the driver to restart the vehicle safely. On other occasions, this same owner claimed that the SUV would not exceed a speed of 30 mph when driving up a hill. Many other consumers reported similar incidents, especially of transmissions that would easily overheat or fail to accelerate. If you own, lease, or are considering purchasing a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SUV, you should be aware that there have been multiple complaints about faulty or failing transmissions.
