The Outlander Sport had a good 79 out of 100 overall rating from J.D. Power and an 82/100 specific rating for quality and reliability. Mitsubishi offers a class-leading five-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, which includes a seven-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion warranty, a generous 10-year/100,000 powertrain warranty, and a five-year roadside assistance plan. Those engines may not be powerful but Mitsubishi clearly believes they'll keep going for quite some time.
