Hi,The engines used in the 2010 Outlander are extremely durable... more so than most of our previous engines as well.Being an XLS this should have the 3.0 V6 (6B) engine... which is the most trouble free V6 Mitsubishi has ever made. If you keep the oil changed and the timing belts done on time these engines are pretty much bullet proof... you don't even see the minor issues like various sensors etc you run into on other vehicles... they just plain work and are happy about it. Further they no longer have the oil consumption issues that (while minor) have been in play on older Mitsubishi platforms.Is there any specific area of concern you have with regard to this engine, the maintenance, or otherwise?

If you have any further questions, need clarifications, or have any specific areas of concern regarding these engines just let me know; I am intimately familiar with them, having been with Mitsubishi since before this engine line up even launched. Just let me know how I can help you.
