The 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor come standard with a full complement of safety features.

“For 2008, Mitsubishi equips all Endeavors with anti-lock brakes” and “Active Stability and Traction Control,” notes Kelley Blue Book. Using the vehicle’s anti-lock brakes and other built-in sensors, the Active Stability and Traction Control can strategically apply brakes to various wheels individually and/or reduce engine power to keep the vehicle on its intended path. The inclusion of full-length side curtain airbags is another important standard safety feature on the Endeavor.

The Endeavor performed well in governmental crash testing. “In National Highway Traffic Safety Administration frontal crash testing, the Endeavor earned five out of five stars for driver protection and four stars for the passenger,” reports Edmunds. “In side-impact testing, it scored five stars across the board. In frontal-offset and side-impact testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Endeavor earned the top rating of ‘Good.’” The Endeavor was not tested for rollover resistance or crashes, an area where SUVs typically don’t perform as well as cars, though the Endeavor’s lower car-based chassis could help its performance in this area. Its carlike handling, as well, should aid in accident-avoidance maneuvers.

Conclusion

Great crash-test results, good chassis dynamics, and plenty of accident-avoidance features should lend confidence to drivers of the 2008 Mitsubishi Endeavor.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
