TABLE OF CONTENTS

After researching vehicles and locating the best deal, you finally pull out of the dealership in your Mitsubishi Outlander. Whether you went with the newest model year or picked up a high-quality pre-owned Outlander, you will want to keep it in tip-top shape. Regular maintenance is one of the best ways to protect your vehicle investment.

Your Outlander Maintenance Schedule

Maintenance routines will vary depending on driving habits, frequency of use, and what type of roads you travel. The following Mitsubishi maintenance schedule is designed for average use in non-harsh environments, such as regular city streets, highways, and paved roads with no extreme temperature changes.

An online maintenance schedule is available through Mitsubishi that accounts for your make, model, and mileage.
