2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS Engine Noise
When standing outside the vehicle sounds somewhat like a disel engine, or a tractor. Not as loud, but definitely noticable. This is the first time I have owned an SUV. I'm more use to cars such as the Toyota Corolla, or Nissan Altima where after starting the engine, you don't even know the engine is on.
The noise is apparent during acceleration also. However, I noticed that there is no noise there when the engine is started cold. Just wanted to know if any owners out there notice a slight engine noise?
