My local dealership did the repair for me, but put me on the list to have the hood replaced, anyway. The repair did somewhat ameliorate, but not completely remedy the situation.

yep, had our hood replaced and painted, doesn’t make a difference.
Had the stereo replaced already, both front window regulators and window switches, the rear windows are acting up now. The stereo still freezes, gets stuck on map, radio tuner and song frozen. Has a knocking in the front end, the trunk latch got stuck and had to manually override it. Loud wind whistling noise from passenger front window. When we got the vehicle back after the hood was replaced, the repair order has a new recall for a fuel pump issue but no availability or eta on a fix. Vehicle got stuck at 25 mph on highway and would not accelerate. This is hands down the worst new car purchase ever. My 2016 outlander GT had no issues, and my 2013 Ralliart Lancer gave me zero issues. Far cry from what they used to be.

I think you should look into the lemon law for this particular car!

I just got my fuel pump replaced. Finally. It was noticeable immediately when i drove it home. The power i needed was there. Few days passed, still great, feeling pretty good. Then yesterday i noticed the lack of power again. Revs high, takes a second then kicks in. Kinda frustrating. I feel maybe something else then the fuel pump. Maybe eco mode meases it up, seem to kinda stay in it. Who knows really. I gave up. As for the hood, mitsubishi canada called me to be in the list t9 get it fully replaced.

We had our fuel pump replaced as well, and experienced the lack of power and unable to go over 30mph again.
the hood was replaced and it too still experiences Fluttering over bumps and highway speeds.
the audio unit still doesn’t work and freezes, it too has been replaced.
Very frustrating dealing with these issues Mitsubishi refused buying it back.

I purchased an outlander se in October of 2021 and pulled out of dealership and had same hood issue. Salesman made me keep the test drive on the side roads or I would have seen this hood issue. i won’t go into all the problems I had with Griffin Mitsubishi in Monroe NC but was assured a fix was coming and they were unaware of the issue and then it was only on a few cars. I am an attorney and I don’t usually threaten with a lawsuit but I do not think the car is safe to drive at highway speeds and I also experienced loss of power. When that recall was issued I went the same day to Kia and got a new Stinger GT1 and KIa has really upped their game while Mitsubishi went down. I was given $2000 more than I owed and only put 2k down. I say dump it and get out of it. They are built cheap and not only that used the same cvt type transmission from the same company that built the ones for Nissan that had all the trouble. Run Run Run away from it. It is less hassle unless a law firm takes up a class action and then you will still be holding onto it for the time it is in litigation, which you signed an arbitration clause, so litigation would be horribly long time. Trade it in now and go get a kia more money but their vehicles are 3 times better and they do not look or feel cheap at all. But stay away from cvt transmissions.

I love my 2022 Outlander. Yes, there are have been a few items that the dealership was expected to deal with and fix. They delivered on the defective charging pad, and the forward sensor not working on occasion. The warning would come out notifying the driver. I noted the hood flutter issue when I took possession in last September. It took several months to confirm that my dealership in Ontario would arrange to have the hood replaced. To-day, the dealership notified me saying that the new hood has arrived and they can do they job over 3 days. The hood will need to be painted and clearcoated. They are providing with a loaner during that time. Inasmuch as this is somewhat inconvenient, I have had many other vehicles where I have to live with inadequacies for the entire time I had the vehicle. I say cudos to Mits for standing by their vehicles. In no way do I have regrets about the purchase of the all newly designed Outlander. It rocks and turns heads.
