The Good and The Bad

The good! I went there on Holoween night interested in a couple vehicles. I was helped right away and was treated very nicely. It did take a little time for them to go and get the car for me to test drive and the price was way below msr .The bad! I ended up trading in my perfectly working car and purchasing the car I test drove but waited 10 hours there to drive it home because of a repair they had to make to it. Afterwards I drove it about 1 week and notice a few things wrong with the car so I made an appointment to bring it in for repairs on 11/8/16 and currently still do not have my car on 11/14/16. I have not been able to enjoy the car I purchased and I've been inconvenienced to not have a car to get to and from work or my daily activities with my kids. I wish it could of turned out to be a better experience but unfortunately I'm disappointed.

I read the reviews for this vehicle and just knew it was the worst vehicle since the Yugo. But.....I decided to test drive it and determine for myself; I'm glad I did. With almost 13,000 miles on the clock, it's only seen the shop for oil change and tire rotations. HID headlights, LED taillights, Bluetooth, heated seats, climate control, power drivers seat, PW, keyless entry, and on and on and on. It has every toy I could possible want and it does everything right. Today we loaded 750 pounds of dog food in the back; 15 each 50 pound dog food. There was room for more and I couldn't even tell the load was in the back. I still got 30 mpg on the 30 mile trip back home. We drove from Phoenix some 200 miles up to the White Mountains at 75 mph and still got 29 mpg. 1200' above sea level to 7000'. The seats are a little stiff and the interior has some cheap looking plastic, but it's $10,000 less than any competition and I can live with a few shortcomings for that kind of money. I paid just under $20k and got this amazing vehicle with a ten year bumper to bumper warranty. Great mileage, great storage capacity, almost every toy and the best warranty in the business.

Bought this brand new in January of 2016. No problems until it snowed a little. Car slipped and slid down the road less than a mile from my home toward my destination. The Anti lock system engaged and could not control the car. These tires that the factory put on, are garbage. My car was built in Normal IL, and we all know about snow here. Why didn't they put all terrain tires on this car is beyond me.

This is my 2nd Mitsu. I put 50k + on a 2014 Lancer and never had an issue. Great car. This Outlander Sport is fun to drive, unbelievably reliable and great utility. This is a very competitive segment and this Outlander Sport is very competitive. The value is terrific. We have owned for 3 months and put almost 9k miles on it. Very comfortable on long drives. Looks great too. Mitsub may not be real popular in the US but ubiquitous everywhere else. Definitely check this one out. Plus the dealer in Raleigh is fantastic.

Love the car-Hate the dealership

I purchased my 2015 Outlander Sport at the end of 2015. 2 months after I bought it, I received a recall notice, so I made an appointment with the dealership for Saturday Morning which is about 25 minutes away. To my surprise when I got there the dealership had closed down. No letter no phone just puff gone. Trip made for nothing. Called Mitsubishi and the closes dealership to me is 2 1/2 hours away and they don't do Saturdays. Miss a days work because they have a recall. I am not happy. To bad too I love my car but will not purchase again because of the dealerships. Oh one more thing had a road trip and after a while the front seats were not comfortable. Had to sat on a pillow.

Don't buy this car you will be sorry.

The car has a metallic chain noise that comes and goes intermittently as you take off or when your going up hills or driving low. You have to use expensive gas 89 the dealership will tell you and you will still hear the noise chain (makes me think of a bike chain dragging) noise after. The dealership even told me to get the fuel injector cleaned and I still get the same noise with that done a few times and with octane boost put in with the gas. Don't buy this car. I want back to the dealer and I was told that the motor is making the SUV make that sound with all the power it need to run the car and it will always make that noise and it would only get worst in the winter time and get louder. I got a new car to have a problem free car not have a lot of new problems. The material that the seats are made with are cheap and the moldings at the bottom of the seats where made very cheap and will come off if you tap them and break. The SUV basically has no trunks you just have a cargo cover over your make shift trunk area and the bluetooth system is horrible you will be frustrated after the car asks you like four times whats the name of the person you want to call and then asks you actually want to call them over and over again. The radio is hard to navigate if you get the radio stereo stuck on repeat or shuffle you have to play with it a long time to get it off. Good luck and don't choose this problem car I want to trade this car in for something that isn't Mitsubishi now. First and last time buying a Mitsubishi. BUYER BEWARE. Don't buy it you will be sorry and in for a big head ache and disappointment.

WOW! 2015 Outlander Sport GT one year later

I bought the 2015 Outlander Sport GT back in April 2015 so have owned it for more than a year. Wow! What a nice vehicle. I got a gray one with the Touring package, Rockford Fosgate sound system, panoramic roof, cargo package, and exterior side moldings. The GT version also comes with the 2.4 liter engine. For me it drives beautifully. Nice pickup and acceleration with the improved engine. The black leather interior and matching black carpet make the interior fell rich and comfortable. The navigation system/audio system is LOADED with features and looks and sounds great. At the push of a button the ceiling retreats and panoramic roof with its LED backlighting appears-- very impressive! Best Features: The sound system is too cool and if you like bottom-end bass you will learn to rock out! Night driving with the panoramic roof open and the stereo loud will make you want to take more night drives! It was easy to pair my IPhone to the system and having the system controls on the steering wheel is convenient . The leather heated seats are very comfy and the dashboard layout was nicely thought out. There is also ample leg room for rear passengers. The gas mileage is also good--my best is 33 MPG and it averages 26-28 MPG on my 19 mile commute to work. Could be better features: I am not yet sold on the voice activation of the phone or navigation system. Maybe it needs to learn my voice and after one year of trying you would have thought it would have my voice down pat? And, Mitsubishi should rethink the "book" it gives as owners manuals. I find the manuals to be confusing and contain too much info and printed in typeface much too small for my eyes. And, after a year of driving, the shocks could be better. And lastly, the rear cargo area is small but certainly ample for most shopping expeditions as long as you don't buy any really larger size items. That being said, I really like the GT!

Proffessionals are wrong!

Could not disagree more with the Edmunds review. Did they even drive the car or base it on past models? For the money this is the best vehicle available in it's class. This is our fourth Mitsubishi and if this one is as reliable as the others, and I see no reason why not, we will be happy campers! No, it does not accelerate like a Corvette, but that is not what it was made to do. I am pleasantly surprised with how our 2.4 get's up and goes. Was hesitant about the CVT also but not only no problems but it is fun. A top of the line CUV with all wheel drive for a little over twenty grand that has a ten year warranty? Show me a comparison! I am willing to bet 99.9% of the naysayers have never driven one!!

Best car for the money

This is such a great value. If you purchase a similar vehicle from a different manufacturer you'll be paying too much. The engine and transmission are great, it accelerates faster than expected with the 2.4 liter engine. I would recommend this car to my family members.

Better than expected

I bought a 2015 leftover in April 2016 because I got a real good price. I bought with some trepidation, considering the expert reviews I read, but noted that most consumer reviews were pretty good. Maybe the experts expect too much from a vehicle because they can compare the vehicle to many more expensive ones. I have only had the vehicle for a few weeks, but I'm fairly happy with it. It is not a sports car, but handles adequately for an SUV. Acceleration is decent, and the engine doesn't seem any noisier than on the Rogue I traded in. Interior is a little less upscale than on some competitors, but is practical and comfortable. The ride is a little stiff, but the vehicle has 18" '55' series tires, so that is somewhat expected. Exterior is rather attractive, and I'm getting better than advertised MPG. So far, I'm satisfied After 6 months, everything is pretty much the same. I'm still satisfied. I get about 25+ MPG locally, and around 30 on the highway. The ride could be a little better on rough pavement, but is not terrible.

Not too bad. actually pretty good

I had to get rid of my 2009 lancer ralliart because it needed very expensive repairs. I literally cried. I loved that car. However, I am pregnant and needed something more practical anyways. My old car had two 10" subs in the back and no room for a stroller. I knew this car would not live up to that car since my old car had AWD and a turbo. I like driving fast. I've been pleasantly surprised with the "get up and go" this car has. Not comparing it to my lancer of course. However, a few years ago I had a 2008 Ford Escape and that thing was so slow to go. I haven't been using the paddle shifters, but I might give them a try. I also need to learn better how to really use the CVT transmission. I'm used to a SST transmission. I enjoy the upgrades on this model, but I'll admit that some of them seem kind of random. I would've taken dual climate control over heated heats. I think the HID headlights are pretty nice though and I like the accent of the led lights that are always on. The panoramic glass roof is cool, but it doesn't open for fresh air. So that's another upgrade that I don't really understand. The headlights are adjustable up and down , bluetooth audio, rockford fosgate sound system that includes tweeters and a built in 10" sub in the back, mood lighting on the panoramic roof, rain sensing wipers, chrome accents inside, back up camera. The only thing I feel that I am missing is navigation (which I honestly wouldn't use much) and leather seats. Just putting the stroller in the back takes up a lot of cargo space. I kind of wish it was a little larger back there. I know my Escape had more room in the back. I plan on keeping this car for about 3 years and then getting my race car again. This time it will be a Subaru WRX STI since Mistubishi decided to end the Lancer Evolution. Kind of pissed about that! What's the deal Mistubishi?!

If you live with snow, stay away

I live in Minnesota, and we get a lot of snow usually. So I thought an all wheel drive would be a great choice for my commute vehicle. Well, when it snows I'm in fear of driving this car. It has the factory Nexen tires I'm familiar with. They are known to be cheap summer tires people put on custom after market rims for summer driving. They claim to be all season with light snow rating, could not be anymore inaccurate. I will be buying new tires before our next winter to see it it helps. But coming from the factory, this car scares me driving in any kind of snow. Even if it's only a few inches. It reminds me of my younger years trying to drive a car on bald tires in snow. Even in all wheel drive it does not handle or stop with 2 inches of snow. Aside from that, once the brakes locked up on me after driving through a snow 6 inch snow bank. I couldn't have been going more than 5mph and the brakes did not function and left me sliding 2 car lengths before I stopped. I had no control, luckily I was in a parking lot. I am very lucky the one winter I drove this vehicle we seen a very low amount of snowfall and I have another vehicle to use. Besides all of the awful unsafe winter use of this vehicle, it's not bad. It had one recall repair already for potential stalling when hitting the accelerator, which mine never did. Another problem I had multiple times was with long road trips and using cruise control. It would just stop working completely. When I would hit traffic or non passable cars and turn off the cruise control a few times within a short time it would stop working until I was done driving and had the car parked for awhile. The acceleration is the worst of any car I have ever owned in my life. It is so slow from a dead stop that I will not pull out in traffic unless the next upcoming car is 2 or 3 football fields away. Once on the road acceleration is ok. Summer driving is good. On average tank of gas I will average 26-28mpg with 80% highway. Every single fill up I hand dial to see. Winter driving averages 22-25 with 70% city driving. Overall would I buy this vehicle know all that? That is a BIG NO. After a year of ownership I looked into trading it in and it depreciated A LOT . Easily worth 25% less than when I bought it. If I bought a new pickup truck I would see 25% drop until it was paid off. This is not a safe winter vehicle, maybe new tires will help, but I'm not sure about the brake issue with snow.

DON'T BELIEVE THE ''EXPERTS'' !

This is my third Mitsubishi. 1991 Galant, 2003 Outlander we still own with 210,000 miles and this 2015 Sport GT. I've owned it for 4 months, 4000 miles and We LOVE it! I've owned Honda, Toyota, Nissan truck and Chevy's. All good cars and trucks, but Mitsubishi NEVER gets the credit it deserves for a Japanese vehicle of Superior quality and lower price than its better advertised competitors. These are Wonderful vehicles, precision built and designed. Available in the U.S. at lower prices for who knows why? lack of advertising... Take advantage of these deals and get a Well designed, quality built Japanese vehicle for a great price! They run FOREVER with just proper maintenance, the exterior stays beautiful with minimum maintenance. how many times I've said to my son "OH U washed the Outlander (03)?'' His answer "NO it rained"... it looked Great. I Love our new 2015 Outlander Sport, the Rochford Fosgate Sound system is Awesome. Performance with the 2.4L is great, mileage is about 25-26 around town. Took her out in unplowed 14'' of snow in 4WD LOCK No problem at all. Heated seats, mirrors, adjustable drivers seat, steering column... 4WD, glass roof, back up camera, much, much more for 20 something K? Plus 10 year/100,000 warranty. I love it! All I can say is give it a chance? Don't listen to the ""so called'' Expert reviews?

This is my first Mitsubishi after owning an Acura TL and prior to that owning Fords and Chevrolets. I am pleased with vehicle so far(500 miles in...) it has all the bells and whistles that I wanted at a most affordable price(compared to similar models and options) along with the best warranty bumper to bumper and powertrain in the industry(The dealer I purchased from adds a lifetime powertrain warranty). Little things that I liked about this model are the heated seats(they heat up really fast and get quite toasty), backup monitor, parking assist sensors, mirror turn lamps, and fog lamps. Fuel economy is around 25 mph between city and highway(a little better when I turn off the AWD to 2 wheel drive only.

Love my Mitsu!!!

i have been a Mitsu owner for 25 years, and 4 trucks, 2 Monteros, and 2 Outlanders, i have never had any problems with any of them, adn still have 2 of them now. These is a very good CUV, i admit the earlier 2013 and 2014, had a sluggish CVT, but otherwise there were great, reliable cars. But like the other review they get NO RESPECT, Mitsubishi created the CUV concept, long before Honda hrv, mazda 3,or those others, i Got a great deal on the vehicle, and fully loaded for $22k, BECAUSE OF OWNER LOYALTY, CAR WAS VALUES AT 28K. The remote start, heated seats, auto climate, auto wipers, auto lights, interior lights, awc, roof racks and 18' wheels. , and more, and it has a simpe and easy entertainment system, and love the controls on the steering wheel, simple and always works . Not a millions plastic buttons to push or turn. it is good in all weather conditions, if you have the right tires, and have some knowledge of how to drive. I really wish they would bring back the Montero/Pajero, or others from the European market.

UNDER RATED GEM !

Have owned for 3 months now. Love the sound of closing the door, thump,SOLID! I believe the Mitsubishi Outlander it's a under rated GEM. I live in Ohio and have only been in 3 inches of snow so far this winter. Taking off from a standing stop is a breeze in 4wd or 4. Wheel lock. Love the push button to select the drive options My complaint is stopping with the Nexen all season tires, on snow, you really have to be light on the brake pedal or it will lock up and chadder as the abs kicks in. Another complaint of mine is the orange lighting used behind the climate control knobs.the dash lights for the tach and speedo are clear. Why not make them all the same? Clear. Leg room in the back is sufficent for a 6 foot person. Seating is comfortable, I have leather and they are heated. Only black leather is available, wish other colors were a choice. Gas mileage is o.k. I have gotten 29.5 on highway in 2wd. 4wd I have gotten 26.5 on a 100 mile trip to Columbus. I looked at Chevy Trax. Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4. It came down for me to the price and warranty. $21,923 out the door with rebates. 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, etc, etc. Folks that is 4wd, leather interior,heated seats n mirrors. Mud flaps n back up camera. Mitsubishi doesn't advertise much. If you are in the market take a serious look at the Outlander Sport.

For the price nothing competes

I've been looking for a small cuv and used honda and toyotas are overpriced. Both are great vehicles but you can purchase a brand new outlander sport for what dealers want for the other vehicles used so they are basically taking your trade in for free. The outlander sport has a great warranty and rides really nice for a small cuv. The cvt trans is definitely different than what I'm used to but you can also manually shift it. The 4wd system is really advanced because you can run it in fwd (front wheel drive), auto four wheel drive or lock 4wd when the weather is bad. It stays in 4wd lock until 25 mph the automatically switches back to auto 4wd. I previously had a subaru and really didn't like the fact that it didn't have a similar option. Fuel economy looks to be below average compared to similar vehicles but I opted for the bigger engine so I knew that. Some folks may argue that they don't have as good a resale but you are paying at least 3 to 4 grand less from the start, so the way i look at is how can it be worth more in the end. I keep a vehicle at least 10 years. I really don't think you can believe the expert reviews completely. Better off looking at the consumer reviews. Update 1 Year and 15,000 miles. Put in a k&n air filter getting consistent 29 to 30 mpg. Rear tires seem to wear more than the frontship but will easily see over 20k with them which is good for a factory tire. No real issues except seat cover coming loose. I just put it back in the track with a stick on adhesive. Could not see bringing it back to dealer for that. Do alot of winter driving and they lIke to use rocks as anti skid. This stuff easily nicks the lower edge right in front of rear door wheel wells. Notice 2017 come with a sort of moulding or flare. Mud flaps are probably a good option. Not regrets with the 2.4. Plenty of power and does 70 to 80 straight down the highway every day. Again for the price nothing competes!

Love my Mitsubishi!!!

I've had the Outlander Sport for 1 month now, and the vehicle is awesome!! I have the GT with the 2.4 liter engine (FWD not 4WD), upgraded stereo with subwoofer, navigation system, huge skylight and hid headlights. The hid headlights are incredible. The main light comes from a projector lens, but there's also a port for reflected light to shoot out the sides of the housing. Driving at night, especially in dark areas without streetlights, is where these headlights really perform. I just drove on a 3-lane expressway at night, where streetlights were not on for a segment of the road. I drove in the middle lane, and the headlights lit up the center lane AND the lanes to the left and right. In another dark road I saw a fox on the road ahead of me (the headlights startled it) and I was able to follow the scruffy creature as it ran off the side of the road. Another night I saw a cat on the side of the road that turned around and moved further away from the road. The cvt transmission really lowers the engine's rpm's when not pressing hard on the accelerator. Cruising at 40 mph, the engine is at a quiet 1400 rpm's; cruising at 60 mph the engine is just below 2000 rpm's, 70 mph results in 2100 rpm's (and the engine is still smooth and quiet). The upgraded stereo sounds fantastic. The navigation system screen rotates out to allow cd's to be inserted into the stereo. Cellphone connects up to the car via bluetooth (done by car dealer the day I got the Mitsu). I thought my old mp3 player without bluetooth technology wouldn't connect to the car, but it does. There is a usb port in the compartment between the driver and front passenger seats. I hooked up the old mp3 player to that usb port (via the cord that came with the mp3 player) and the artists and albums populated on the Mitsu's touch screen, allowing me to choose what music to play. I haven't had this car long enough to comment on long-term reliability but so far it has been fun to drive.

Literally the only complaint I have is the finish quality of the interior. Too heavy on the hard plastics (we opted for more of a base model trim.) Everything else is par excellence! The CVT is silky smooth. The 2.4L engine offers plenty of pep. The ride is sublime, very quiet cabin. Solidly put together. Comfortable seating position. Nimble handling. Took it for a spin at elevation on a rainy, then slushy, then icy road - 4WD auto and 4WD LOCK are a must have - offers incredible traction. Confident around the corners and a great feel. Wish for a smidge more room in the back for our big dog, but we are exceedingly happy with our purchase. The dealer was eager to please. Subaru has more brand recognition, but we believe we purchased the better crossover for the money.

Just purchased this vehicle from Goldstein Auto Albany and its a great little ride, excellent on gas and great size to, room enough for a small family and also room for the groceries in the back cargo area and easy to get to. I have heard these vehicles are great in the snow , so i'm looking forward to not getting stuck in the snow this winter.

Purchased this for my wife. We had test driven a 2013 two years ago and were disappointed with its acceleration. Thankfully, the 2015 is no where near the same. Mitsubishi refined the CVT and added the 2.4 liter motor which made a huge difference in performance. We love the HID headlamps. Since we live in the country, deer are always a hazard. These headlights have a tremendously wide angle allowing the driver to see deer much better at night. Love it. Also, the breaks are very responsive. Cruise control is great. The Rockford Fosgate sound system is worth the money...incredible for a stock system. We like the physical size of the vehicle...not huge and not too small. Perfect for a small family and easy to drive. Visibility and seating position is excellent...unlike rav4. Rain sensing wipers are handy and work well. The four wheel drive system is much more advanced than most of the competition. You can actually lock the differential unlike Subaru and Honda. Toyota rav4 does lock, but you can only go 25 mph. The dealership was great. And these motors have a great reputation for reliability. Warranty is unmatched by any Japanese brand. Proudly built in the USA. We have been getting 27 mpg in 60/40 highway/city driving. Wife loves the heated seats, auto climate control, and panaramic roof. We paid 25k. Give this suv a shot if you are in the market...don't be brainwashed by paid reviewers/journalists. Update: car has been completely trouble free. Not a single issue (as it should be) in the 14k miles we have owned it. Still no rattles. Everyone still loves it.

Pros: decent on gas. Small. Cons: Small. Unreliable: In less than 3000 miles, this vehicle developed a transmission shudder (CVT), the airbag and seat belt warnings came on, and finally the tire pressure warnings came on. Comfort: It's horridly uncomfortable for an average American. Suspension bottoms out when the vehicle is loaded, and It doesn't have anywhere near the ground clearance needed. Obviously not designed for anything off road - not recommended at all. The Outlander might be an upsize for small-statured folks in the country of origin, but if you're over 6' or 250 lbs, fuggettaboutit. Convenience: The sunvisors don't extend. There's no aux audio input for an mp3 player. The A/C is weak and can't cope with 105 degree days. Bluetooth does pair up with your phone quickly and phone calls work good. Performance: Nonexistent from idle to 3500 rpm. The throttle needs gouged to spin the motor to redline. Highway passes made easily but the car sounds like it's coming apart when flogged. Transmission shifts are atrocious and a pronounced driveline shudder appeared in the first month. Safety: given the cramped quarters in the foot area, in the event of a frontal crash, you'd be pinned in the car with two broken legs. Given that the airbag lights came on in the first three months of use, the car seems like a death trap waiting to spring. Reliability: nonexistent. The car accumulated more issues every month. Dealers are only located in metropolitan areas, for us a 150 mile drive. Overall: We turned this POS back into GSA and pray they don't ever, ever issue this model to anyone else.

I love this car! I believe Edmunds needs to conduct a "do-over" on their rating. The warranty and safety ratings are fantastic. I drove my new awesome mobile on a one hour trip today. The acceleration and cruise control were awesome. A friend of mine who is 85 years old went on the trip and told me she thought it was one of the most comfortable car rides she had been on in her lifetime. I find a feature not addressed by many of the 5 star ratings was the seat and steering wheel adjustments. You can pump the seat higher and don't have an awkward look out your front window. The steering wheel adjustment allows additional comfort. I also would like to thank the Mitsubishi sales folks in my hometown. You know you're driving a great car when the salespeople actually own the car. I highly recommend this SUV!

I read all of the reviews before deciding to purchase the 2015 Outlander Sport SE. I live in Florida, so having heated seats was not a big deal for me. However, it did have to have great braking and great traction on the busy roads. This vehicle does NOT disappoint. My last car was also a Mitsubishi and it lasted me 13 years. That, in itself, sold me on the Mitsubishi line of cars. To be honest, Mitsubishi is highly UNDERRATED! I see people complaining about the CVT and the torque of the engine. It doesn't bother me at all. The main thing that you must keep in mind is this SUV is NOT an off-roading vehicle. Also, just because it has "sport" in the name, doesn't mean it's a sports car! This car, for me is EXACTLY what I wanted without going into MAJOR debt! The navigation system is great, the 9 speaker Rockford Fosgate with the 10" subwoofer really kicks some music butt, and the panoramic moon roof is incredible! This car drives like a dream! The 4 disk brakes are highly responsible and the steering is spot on! What I really enjoy about this car, is the fact that I can change from an automatic transmission to a manual transmission. This works out great when you want to get off the "red light line" first or, you have to speed up on a highway on-ramp. Unfortunately, not many people who come to Florida, know how to drive their cars and proper road procedures. Currently, I am getting 25.6 mpg driving in the City. Keep in mind, I am also not driving the car like I'm Mario Andretti! I'm a 43 year old mom. I don't need to drive like a maniac! But when I do, this car has the needed "get up and go"! I highly recommend this car if you are in the market. From what I understand, the 2015 will be the last made with a gas engine. In 2016, Mitsubishi will be redesigning the Outlander Sport with a Hybrid engine. Regardless of whats to come, I am extremely happy with my purchase! I like having a vehicle that doesn't look like every other SUV on the road!

Don't be fooled by "expert" reviews! GREAT CAR!

Are you kidding? Buy it! We mulled around for two weeks trying to decide between the Honda CRV, Subaru XT and the Outlander Sport. The Mitsubishi had the best warranty by a long shot (not the warranty was much of a concern with Honda or Subaru). It boiled down to bang for your buck. We got a LOADED SE Outlander with the glass roof for around the starting price of the other two. We bought the Mitsubishi thinking we just got more bells and whistles but a cheapo car. Well, we were wrong. We just wrapped up a 2000 mile road trip and we were stunned. Economy: This car averaged 31 MPG over the full distance. (Keep in mind this is the 4X4) The insurance rate was lower than the other two SUVs we were considering. Comfort: I have a very bad back and that is the most comfortable I have been in a car since I drove a Lincoln. It rides, handles and stops very well. Power: Many people comment the power is lacking in this car. My wife and I feel it is just right. It is not slow by any means. 70 -80 mph with no issues through the mountains. Acceleration is actually impressive. MPG is the concern for us and this car finds that balance between power and MPG. The CVT transmission is a little weird at first but you soon get used to the shift or no shift depending on where your foot is on the accelerator. I have fun working with the transmission keeping the MPG maxed out. Design: The interior is not Lexus quality but it is as good if not better than Honda, Toyota or Subaru. We LOVE the Rockford Fosgate stereo system with the touch screen and deep bass. The illuminated glass roof is a treat at night. The exterior is aggressive and sporty. It turns heads. We had several people ask us what kind of car this was and they liked it. Value: We feel we could not have done better with any other car. The Mitsubishi dealers seem happy to have our business instead of considering it a chore to sell us a car (Honda, Subaru). We bought this car for work commuter duty. We have already decided it will be much more than that.

Traded in the pathetic Compass for an Outlander Sport. The 2.4 in the Outlander and the refined CVT make the Compass look like, well, a Compass. I was very skeptical after reading other reviews, but really liked the styling. After test driving the Outlander Sport, I was sold. This is a very nice vehicle with an attractive warranty. The Compass has the same motor size and a CVT transmission, but there is a huge difference in the two. The Outlander Sport rides nice, has sufficient power with the 2.4 and is at least unique. Not one person in my county has the same vehicle. The dealership was outstanding as well. Go buy an Outlander Sport!

We picked up a 2015 outlander sport se 4wd. It is awesome. The backseat has more room for me at 6'2" than our Jeep Grand Cherokee. People who think this vehicle has pokey acceleration were not taught how to use the CVT transmission properly. It's just like a snowmobile or automatic 4wheeler. It has a "powerband" in the 3-5000 rpm range. If you keep the Rpms in this range it's pretty dang snappy, even while moving at about 45. It has a great ride, it's quiet, it looks great, I don't know what more I can say. LED driving lights, fog lights, paddle shifters, auto climate control, touch screen stereo, backup camera, heated seats, adjustable headlights, I mean. What more can you ask for an suv that costs $21K?!? Oh yeah. 30mpgs and 4wheel drive! It's ridiculous. Knock it all you want, but I'll take a $300/month payment for a brand new suv all day. Try it with any other brand with those options. Good luck!

We love the size and colors available. It has a lot of pep with the 2.4 engine. Good style for what the newer SUV's are today. The ride is very comfortable. Dealer was good and we got a deal that we were happy with. We added the rain guards over the windows as they are great when it is raining. Easy to understand most of the controls and the dealer went through the controls inside before we left the lot. They set-up my Bluetooth phone. We are very happy and this will last us many years. We are retired and don't do much traveling and we have a second SUV. I agree that you need to test drive this to make a decision. Don't sell this SUV short.

Not all SUV's are the same !!!

Its funny to read some of these reviews, some folks think because Outlander Sport is a SUV , it should be and do all things .. Not so .. I bought the 2.4 GT model . Why did I buy it ? I bought it for the following reasons . Good looking vehicle. Great price. Great warranty . Not too small and not too big. If you are like me , an empty nester and want a small realizable SUV , then take a look . This is NOT for folks with kids ( back seat too tight ) folks looking to tow stuff .. I mean a 2.0 or 2.4 liter engine and your trying to tow !!!! really ....This handles great for a 3000 pound vehicle , very good all wheel drive and good value for the price. If you want a decent small reliable SUV, yes do take a look , if your criteria is something else , then look for a different type of vehicle . Keep in mind that in 2015 , there are SUV's that are SUV's and there are SUV's that are to be used for , driving in the city/highway , seating in a high position , carrying groceries. These are not you dad's SUV. They are getting smaller , offering less cargo room and less passenger room , that is why they are called Sub-SUV , get it ... Hope this helped.

It's not all it is cracked up to be....

Firstly this vehicle is catered to a cheaper market i get it but it is none the less a vehicle that should have not ever left the drawing board. Firstly I am luck to have only rented this vehicle and not purchased it. That is really dodging a bullet. Ok picture this a car salesman doing his job and trying to sale you a car talking about all the features in the car blah blah blah. With that being said there are things you would never pick up on when you are on a test drive. So lets get started...First the car is so under powered and is poor at accelerating I think my poodle can run fast than this car. Pretty much don't rely on this car if you need to get out of the way or move out of danger quickly. Truth be told I was getting on a highway on ramp and it took forever to accelerate. Secondly I think they rushed the design of this engine or at least the cruise control system....I'm sorry to say but it is garbage. Why is it garbage you might ask? If it is not busy increasing and decreasing rapidly the RPM's it's busy struggling to keep up with you speed change request. Not just that the way it engages it the most counter intuitive way to engage it. To engage it you turn on the master switch on the steering column, then while you are at the desired speed release the acceleration pedal the depress the set mode then hold the accelerate mode on the steering column for approx 8-15 second to see any increase in RPM, then finally it increases but just maybe 100-300 increase in RPM, then finally it gets up to 3000-4000 RPM. Mind you i'm going highway speeds at level ground give or take. It was more annoying to have the cruise control on than anything so i just left it off for the duration. The electronic information available to the driver is very minimal would be nice to know whats going on with the car while your driving. The entertainment system is an attempt to stay with the times but it has a ways to go....not to user friendly to driver in particular the satellite radio functions. Finally there is only on usb and that is in the central arm rest. Its funny that it has the option for a line in component such as a mp3 player but physically there is no location to plug in the line in... It wouldn't have been for those items to be corrected i would say this car could have the potential to last more than 5-8 years. I can just see the lemon tree grow......Good try Mitsubishi but i'm not convinced. I'll give it to you though your partners on the lancer side of the house have got it down but this Out-lander Sport needs to be redesigned.

I have a very basic Outlander Sport. Just the type of car I like. This is a wonderful car with gas mileage in line with the numbers (27 - 30 mpg for my daily driving). I love Mitsubishi for their reliability. This car has great acceleration (not sure what Edmunds did not like). I drive in rush hour in Chicago with significant traffice going at 70 - 75 mph. The Sport has no problems merging, accelerating to pass, handling, etc. I have had to respond quickly due to some silly drivers and this Sport responds great.

I have 2015 GT FWD model and its surprisingly comfort ride. I decided to purchase a crossover due to long commute to work and i was looking for price factor(basically a value for money) crossover without moving to a car, I looked at multiple crossovers from different car manufactures and decided to purchase Outlander Sport 2.4L GT model.Wow I'm glad that i bought this car and i really enjoy the car for daily commute. The visibility in the car is excellent same like sitting on any other full size SUV. If you are looking for a smaller, reliable, sporty crossover then its best bet for the price and options. This is not for a family who have more kids as trunk space is too small.

just picked up my brand-new 2015 outlander GT sport with the 2.4 L engine and the paddle shifters . the power this vehicle has for an all-wheel-drive model is amazing I can't tell you enough how great this car is to drive need to stop down and try it out what a difference from the original vehicles they have been complaining about with the small underpowered 2.0 motor . I just got it and cannot stop smiling get to your dealer and road test one with the paddle shifters. The only complaint I have is the real window visibility in the rearview mirror is kind of hard to see very small rear hatch window.

I bought the new 2015 Outlander Sport GT. Wow! What a nice vehicle. I got a gray one with the Touring package, Rockford Fosgate sound system, panoramic roof, cargo package, and exterior side moldings. The GT version also comes with the 2.4 liter engine. For me it drives beautifully. Nice pickup and acceleration with the improved engine. The black leather interior and matching black carpet make the interior fell rich and comfortable. The navigation system/audio system is LOADED with features and looks and sounds great. At the push of a button the ceiling retreats and panoramic roof with its LED backlighting appears-- very impressive!

Does not get great MPG! I only get 16 MPG running around town. Traded in a large 6.0 yukon that got 13 MPG thinking this would do better. Noisy and cheap, They put 18" tires hoping to give it a better ride but sill rides rough. Its a compact car trying to be a crossover SUV. But for a cheap 4x4 its worth the money. It does has a great warranty. The SE is way better inside than the ES, But the ES is cheaper to. Dont expect to wow! anyone with this car. Nothing great about it? Except you cant by a cheaper 4x4 for the price. And no towing at all! No class 2 hitch for bikes are allowed, voids the warranty. So forget about taking bikes and kids someplace.

The navigation system on the 2015 model uses voice controls for phone and navigation. However, I only recently discovered after buying my car and not being able to use voice controls to enter a destination address that for everything this super duper deluxe navigation system does it doesn't do the one very important function of a navigation system. Which is being able to speak the address you want to go to and have the car actually get you there. You have to manually enter an address unlike the many other cars out there with voice navigation. in my opinion this is one of the worst navigation systems i have ever seen. My little portable Garmin is better and actually works!

I don't know why "experts" are so harsh on this vehicle. We initially looked at the 2015 outlander sport based on looks alone. Even the ES base features are nice such as blue tooth. The outlander isn't noticeably slow as some reviews state, and it more than makes up for that by incredible MPG even with 4x4. Some reviews also said the engine is loud, but I didn't notice that over the awesome premium sound system that comes standard. The warranty, price and quality are unmatched. I would recommend this car to anyone.
