Re: Vibrating humming audible from front region of vehicle

I had it after a few thousand miles in 2018. It happened once in a while so hopefully I can reproduce it at next dealer test drive. I will also bring your responses to see if they will buy it. Thanks. Let me know if the sound will go away after the fix.

Re: Vibrating humming audible from front region of vehicle

I experienced the same humming/roaring noises too for my 2018 PHEV. My next service won't be for another 5,000 miles. Let me know what you find out so I can tell the dealer. The noises are gone at high speed.

Re: Bad Alignment after 22k miles for 2018 Outlander PHEV

May I ask why you’e disappointed? Dealers here aren’t equipped for this level of analysis and adjustment. I take my car to an independent tyre garage after every service and when new tyres are fitted(I have written about this before) and they have a machine that produces a report just like yours, a...

Bad Alignment after 22k miles for 2018 Outlander PHEV

Our 2018 outlander PHEV's OEM Toyo tires got really bad at the rear driver side tire with 22k miles due to bad alignment. We got a new set of 4 Michelin Premier, some $820 from Costco after discount of $150. Also got the alignment done at local mechanic for $50. Very disappointed with Mitsubishi for...

Re: buying highmile with recent battery 'birthday'

At least the seller was honest by telling you the reset of battery but still I won't buy it.

Re: Servicing cost

In LA, it costs only $50 for oil change in dealer. :D

Re: Brake discs

It seems like some of you needs new brake pads at 30k or 60k. So it is good to know that I should periodically check the brake when rotating tires. My 2012 Lexus CT200h is still on original brake pads at 80K miles but then Toyota has a different design than Outlander PHEV.

Re: Transmission service for PHEV??

As I said, the colour is irrelevant on transmission oil. The lubricating properties can be laboratory-tested. Somewhat OTT, though. Spark plugs and engine oil will be changed to schedule on the regular services by your dealer. It is not vital maintenance for some of us; the ICE runs very little. Yo...

Re: Help Please - EV system service required

Do you have a home battery charger to check the 12v battery? Could be a bad 12V battery.

Re: Transmission service for PHEV??

I am used to conventional ICE engine. Where & how can you check the color of the so called tranny oil in this hybrid car? It's too early now at 20,000 miles but would like to check it around 60k or 100k when I change spark plugs & coolant fluid.
