I've got a 2014 barbarian, as the subject title suggests. Got it 18 months ago and have done >65k miles in it. About 20-25k ago the fuels economy went down markedly and so did the power. Have taken it back to the initial dealer, who were less than helpful, and to another, respected dealer, who were more helpful, but still didn't solve the issue. I can get it sorted privately though am keen to get it put right under warranty,(100k).
I'm not a mechanic though do understand some of the internal workings of modern engines.

Ideas?  Smiley

The last garage rebuilt the EGR as they felt it was that causing the issues. No change, just haven't had time to take it back. My local garage has unplugged the towing lights and feels that the original supplier hasn't fitted the special gubbins in line and this is upsetting the engine management. I've had the on board computer replaced once and the new one still crashes from time to time. Now got an EGL on so will try to get it remapped again and see if this sorts the problem.
Then I'll have to get the supplier to sort the tow bar lights

Time to speak to Mitsubishi in Cirencester I think.  If you mess with it outside of warranty, then all warranty may be invalidated.

Or, take back to the dealer you bought it from with a threat of Trading Standards and the Sale of Goods Act.   Either fix it, or replace it.
