Yep I think you're right, I've seen quite a few around my area with big kms still going strong on original engines, my neighbors son has a late 2010 model with over 300k kms... has never seen a dealership for servicing, probably why it's still going.
I recently found a mechanic here that used to be a head mechanic at a Mitsubishi dealship... I asked him his opinion on this subject and he said 100% not all these engines are defective, without me saying anything bad about dealships he went onto blaming the inexperienced dealer mechanics and overall incompetence in general to be a major factor in so many cases.
His eyes lit up when I suggested improper bleeding process of the cooling system. Apparently there were quite a few that were cooked in this way.
I'd still never buy or recommend a used MN but the longer my one hangs in there the more I'm starting believe that maybe they're not all defective after all.
