Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
It takes 10 minutes on a cold day for my Mitsubishi Outlander to be able to switch from whatever direction the air was on the night before. i.e. if I left it on defrost, it won't switch to vents or floor until my truck is thoroughly warmed up for at least 10 minutes. What is my promblem and how do I fix it?

common problem, check under dash by the gas pedal if control arms are muving went selecting from ac to heat cuz this it is the control for the vents to go from ac to heat and to defrost.

SOURCE: Vent control
You have a vacuum leak.Defrost is the default postion(no vacuum).
See if you can locate the small black vacuum line that goes inside the vehicle on the passenger side near the heater core. The trace it back,should see it going to a canister then to the intake manifold.Make sure it is not disconnected or broken somewhere.

Is it a new vehicle? I had a new vehicle that had the same problem. Answer was that the holes weren't punched out of the vent.
