Hi. New to this forum.

I am looking to purchased used a 2014+ Outlander. I found several 2014, 2015 with about 50,000 miles going for $13,000 and certified which will give me 10 year 100,000 miles warranty. Since a 2014 model is made in 2013, the warranty should be good for another 4 years.

The biggest concern I have is the CVT reliability. I believe the CTV is similar version that is in the Nissan Rogue which is plagued by premature failures. Also the old Mitsubishi 2.4 had oil burning issues.

How reliable is the CVT in the Outlander?

Any issue with engine burning oil?

Thanks

Waid

I have no real knowledge. I bought my 2014 Outlander used with 89000 miles on it. I drove it for 8000 miles before changing the oil, balancing and rotating the tires. The dipstick indicated that the oil level in the car was too high. So the whoever the dealership used to change the oil for me put in over 5 quarts and the Outlander didn't lose any of it, it seems.

When I serviced my car, one of the 4 wheels had loose lug nuts, and all of the tires were unbalanced. I get the distinct impression that my Outlander's previous owners were not that caring for it. But it seems to run great.

Hi
I bought my 2014 Outlander (2.4 engine) with a mileage of 53,000 miles. In my opinion, I found the car with the variator in good condition, because, in the process of searching for the car, I met the variators in very poor condition (Strong vibration of the variator belt). I recommend that you carefully check the condition of the variator at the time of purchase. Since not all Outlander users adhere to certain requirements when using a variator:
1. Do not slip on the roads for a long time.
2. Do not tow a car or trailer.
3. Do not start abruptly.
