2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor Overview

When it was new, test drivers commented that the 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor had a roomy interior and was relatively pleasant to drive on-road. However, reviewers were quick to acknowledge that it fell short in many areas. The Endeavor has terrible fuel economy and it doesn’t offer a third row of seats. Overall, if you can get a great deal on this Mitsubishi, it may be worth it, but most auto writers acknowledged that many other 2010 midsize SUVs outshine the Endeavor in most ways.

The five-seat Mitsubishi Endeavor comes with a 3.8-liter V6 and a four-speed automatic transmission, which reviewers felt was unrefined. With up to 15/21 mpg city/highway, the Endeavor has worse fuel economy estimates than most other used midsize SUVs, and it is outgunned by many large SUVs as well. The Endeavor is available in two trims, LS and SE, though all-wheel drive is only available on SE trims. Standard features include Bluetooth, an auxiliary audio input and cruise control. A fully-loaded Endeavor could include navigation, a nine-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo system, a rearview camera and heated front seats.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe is a great choice for buyers who want a lot of standard features, great fuel economy and seating for five. Although test drivers were quick to point out its lackluster performance, the Santa Fe has strong safety ratings for the class. With its standard four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive, the Santa Fe’s fuel economy is excellent, but even all-wheel drive V6 models use significantly less fuel than the Endeavor.

The 2010 Buick Enclave is better than the Mitsubishi Endeavor in nearly every way. It offers more standard features and a quiet, upscale interior, as well as better fuel economy. While the Endeavor is fairly pleasant to drive, the Buick has a particularly comfortable, smooth ride with good handling. Plus, while test drivers complained about the Mitsubishi’s dated exterior, they loved the Buick Enclave’s sleek looks.
