"Great all around unit"4.5 starson by kapadouk
Pros: Good power, decent mileage, gadgetry, nise looking.
Cons: stereo dash board is kind of hard to see on a sunny day, too strong for the speakers
Summary: Based on the XLS version of the 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander, driving 190 miles a day on the Massachusetts turnpike.
This SUV replaced my SAAB 2003 9.3, loaded with gadgets and stability.
It has an aluminum roof, all-wheel drive, and eighteen-inch wheels with towing package and large cooling system fantastic.. The steering is nicely weighted, and the six-speed automatic can be controlled via paddle shifters.
Big mistake for not getting the ‘Sound and sun’ which the navigation system comes with, But Bluetooth, keyless start, and a third-row seat, and stability control is standard. Tire pressure monitor standard the rear bumper flips down for easy access to the cargo hold, which is great, LED tail lights are a nice touch.
Plenty of space cargo, hidden compartment , with as many as 8 cup holders, and 3dc, 1ac adapter. Large mirrors, tinted windows great visibility all around.
Much greater looking then Honda or Toyota, which you see every ware you look.
I have it now for couple of moths over 4000 miles.
Miles are not that great on highway 27 to 28 if going over 70mph will drop to 25.
City like any other SUV miles drop rapidly.
The windows are tightly shut but you still get Road Noise which is substantial but I thing the Goodyear tires are the greater contributor to this.
You also do not realize when the shifting takes place it is smooth. Cornering and getting of the ramp is smooth.
The stereo dash board is kind of hard to see on a sunny day.
I thing the Mitsubishi Outlander, is much batter then the other SUV’s of its class I test drove. It has more standard options then the others. Much better looking ok it has some flows but there is life other then a Toy. I like it. tk
