Does anyone else feel that the plastic cap on top of the expansion tank could do with being a bit stronger ? There is no threaded portion it just seems to clip down ! All my other previous cars had a cap which screwed down very tightly on to the bottle. I would imagine the cap is very prone to 'blowing off'.
Is the standard item OK ? Or is it something that can be or must be changed ?

There's nothing wrong with it.
On your previous cars they a high pressure header tank not an expansion tank.
The screw on cap on a high pressure header tank is in effect the radiator cap.
No high pressure fluid enters the Mitsubishi expansion tank so no it can't blow the cap off.
