Had this car for about a month now . May be it's too early to comment on many aspects of ownership,reliability and performance . It's under rated car with consumer reports . But feel that way . It's just like any other small SUV. Initial impression is-it's a honest car . Drives well and the GT has a satisfying performance . Good price too . Prefer to avoid the 2.4 l as drove the 2.4 L and V6 3 L back to back and the difference was apparent . The features , driving experience and price were deciding factors in the purchase . 3 Rd row seats are a joke . Am quite happy and it's 100% made in Japan .

WOW!

I spent 6 months researching cars. We rent a tiny little parking space in NYC width wise, and we were restricted to a car that is less than 75" wide. The family also got a little larger, and we needed a car with at least 6 seats. SO logically I went and researched the top most 7 seat SUVs, which were the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder and the Nissan Rogue. To be completely honest, a 5-10 minute test drive of each of those cars, they felt the same. After seeing the width of Highlander, pilot and pathfinder, I realized none of these will do. I went at the nissan dealer, got a final cost of a rogue which with tax came out to almost $31,500. The rogue came with cloth seats, navigation and some extra stuff. Then out of nowhere saw an advertisement for outlander. We went to go see it, and instantly fell in love with it. Now all those negative reviews on different websites, where did they come from? I am driving a FAMILY SUV, I DEFINITELY don't need it to go from 0-60 in 3 seconds, I am completely fine with it going in 8 seconds. I have the AWC, but keep it off most of the time because I want to save gas. I love the leather, especially since it has on every part of the trim. I opted in for the SEL AWC. One thing that is lacking is the screen. Nower days the cars come with touch screen vs buttons, but I will gladly press buttons and pay 6k less. All honesty this car feels and drives like its worth $35,000. I got 3k miles on it, and took a 900 mile road trip and everything worked wonderfully. ONE very little thing is the paint chip and scratches. You just gotta be careful how you drive the car that's all, and take any paint chip issues straight to the dealer and they will fix it right away.

Tough enough for Australia

Everyone gushes about how much they love their new car, of course. We were in Australia for three months, and drove two of these for just over 10,000 KM (about 6,300 miles). This is a useful seven passenger three row size, partway between the smallest and biggest SUVs. The Outlander’s third row seat is not the biggest, but it does offer about a foot and a half more room between the second row and the hatch. That means a lot to us on an extended road trip with lots of luggage and gear. We drove the ES/SE (rental hybrid of trim levels) with the 2.4 CVT in Australia, and bought the SE S-AWC a month ago here in DFW. I had the same experience as other private reviewers. I don’t understand what the pros are talking about when they say this doesn’t have enough power. I never had to floor it to merge into traffic. It has plenty of power for passing, easily goes from 55 to 70 uphill in the mountains with a full load of gear, and tachs at 2,300 when cruising at 70. It has a very smooth stable ride, a good driving position with comfortable seats, feels confident when cornering, and brakes well. The interior is remarkably quiet. The salesman said it has acoustic glass. Who knows? One feature not available on any other small SUV (that I am aware of) is the ability to disengage the AWD system altogether, using just the FWD and saving a penny on gas. We test drove most of the manufacturers, and could feel the difference between the AWD and the FWD. The Outlander’s AWD was not noticeable whether engaged or not. We spent a lot of time and miles in the Outlander ES/SE in Australia, and found it (and Australia) altogether agreeable. We test drove the GT (V6) and the Sport (shorter wheelbase). The GT and the Sport have firmer rides for different reasons. The seven passenger ES S-AWC 2.4 CVT is the way for us to go. It’s an all day driver, and carries our full load of gear without breaking a sweat.

love the car

I'm in my 13th year in the car business and I don't work for a Mitsubishi dealer. This is the best SUV in the class. The engine and transmission are time tested and solid. Yes it's still timing belt driven but this engine is going to last!! The ride quality is smooth and quite. The upgraded Rockford Fosgate sound system is fantastic, spend some time playing with all the different sound options and find the one that sounds best with your music. Plus you get one of the best warrantys out there.

As many others have said, the so-called "experts" seem to miss the true appeal of the Outlander -- an AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE, SAFE, FUEL-EFFICIENT family SUV with a load of features that would easily cost you thousands more elsewhere. We were able to get our 2016 Outlander SEL for $25,000, and that was WITH 0% financing for 72 months. Shop around, and you won't find another SUV in its class that comes even close when you factor in the features Mitsubishi includes as standard with the SEL trim level. So, what do you get for the money? Well, for starters we are routinely getting 31+ mpg on the highway, and up to 36 mpg in some instances. On hilly back roads and in town, you will run pretty close to the 24/25 mpg advertised mileage, which is still fine for a vehicle of this size. In addition to the economy, you're getting a 5-star safety rating, a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper to bumper warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Again, Toyota, Mazda, Nissan and all the U.S. auto makers don't even come close on warranty. And if you compare similar vehicles from Hyundai and Kia with the features you are getting from Mitsubishi, the price isn't close. So, on top of the economy, safety and reliability, now you can add a nicely appointed leather interior, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, 6-inch color touch screen entertainment display with integrated Bluetooth for your phone, fog lights, keyless entry, power driver's seat, 18-inch allow wheels, LED brake lights and daytime running lights and more. And as other reviewers have mentioned, the all-wheel drive on the Outlander is a full-featured system that allows you to switch to various modes and even lock the wheels. We haven't had any poor weather yet to truly test the AWD system, but based on other drivers' reviews, I am confident it will serve us well this winter on the mountain roads around our Pennsylvania home. As for the third-row seats, yes, they ARE tiny. You certainly would not want to ride across the country in them. However, I imagine most families are like ours and the third-row seats are not for everyday use but rather for occasional use when the kids have a couple friends along or when grandma and grandpa visit and we want to go out to dinner without the need to drive two vehicles. In such instances, the rear seats are more than adequate and represent a real convenience that most other vehicles in this class don't even offer, or charge $1,000 for as an upgrade. Plus, when the third-row seats are folded down, the Outlander offers generous cargo capacity, and with the second row seats folded, there is plenty of room for hauling even large, bulky objects. As for the driving performance, it is true that the 4-cylinder engine is a bit underpowered. Acceleration is sluggish, but that's the tradeoff for the great fuel economy. Besides, my wife and I aren't race car drivers, and we find the overall performance more than adequate. The overall comfort of the leather seats (first and second rows) is very good, the standard sound system is quite good and road noise is quite good. We are only a couple months in, but so far so good with the Outlander. Honestly, I feel this vehicle represents, by far, the best family SUV value on the market, and after looking at MANY other options, I just could not get away from the fact that Mitsubishi offers consumers a lot more for their money than other manufacturers. Add in the great warranty and I am confident that this Outlander will serve our family's needs for many years.

3 months, Paint Chipping , Roof Creasing

2016 Outlander less than 3 months old, front exterior has started peeling and chipping. Warranty says its from pebbles and not covered. This car rides the same roads my other two cars ride and none of them are chipping or pealing. There is a crooked crease across the inside roof where the sun roof is. The warranty company states that is a user issue to. This crease was noticed one month after purchase.

Biased and disconnected auto media... Why do the Edmunds owner reviews not reflect this horrible car you profess? Your credibility is doo-doo. Real proactive lockable 4WD with torque vectoring and major ground clearance (~2+ inches more than most). You only get this grade 4WD (~Quadra Drive II) as a spendy option on a Limited or better Grand Cherokee. $50k for starters. Not even available with most other mfger's. You could stick with the cheapo reactive 4WD (a simple ABS mod actually) where it kicks in after the wheels slip. Great! AWD kicks in -AFTER- you're already sliding into the ditch! Shame on you Subaru for going this route to bump your fuel ratings. Oh well, join the club then. OMG, doesn't handle like a CX5? No kidding, it's biased for 4x4 capability, not car-like compromise. Unfortunately you can't evaluate 4WD capability in the ten minutes the auto journalists spend with the car in southern California. 3rd row seating is tight? How many SUV's in this class have 3rd row? Right, it's not a Suburban, why compare it to one? Low on power? Acceleration is the same as prior model Toyotas and Honda's, but nothing was said about them at the time. I'll take tried and true power train over "experimental" systems that boost power at the cost of reliability (widespread direct injection teething problems, Chrysler 9 speed transmissions, etc). It's criticized that Mitsubishi has the lowest output V6 available. How many of the small SUV's are available with a V6? Almost none. And the power to weight ratio is the same as a Grand Cherokee with the Pentastar, which is panned as "more than adequate" power. Notice the 100% "built in Japan"? That means all parts are high quality. Look at US built cars. 70% US parts, with 30% coming from Vietnam,China, etc.. Have to offset the cost of the good stuff with some crap. Oh, and the crap is the stuff the mfgr has no warranty or accountability for. Wear parts; Shocks, brakes, ball joints, tires, tied rods,etc.. Plan on replacing those at 30k miles. The Fosgate audio system gets criticized hard too. Give me a break. It's the best sounding system out there. It destroys the Logic 7 in my old BMW. The head unit isn't a technical wonder, but oh, the sound... My biggest problem is that they are comparing MSRP to MSRP. To compare apples to apples you should compare -actual- average purchase price. What they are selling for, not what they'd like to sell them for. Throw in the 60k/10 year bumper to bumper and it's an easy choice for a lot of people. Problem is they don't even drive one after they read the 5 minute test drive review from the guy who re-printed the previous year review, who just got out of a Land Rover and a Corvette. This vehicle needs a proper review, unbiased, with attention to detail, with no comparisons to vehicles that are dissimilar. Mitsubishi is not getting a fair shake here.

I was looking for a car to replace my 2009 MB E350. This is basically a company car that I use for work. I love it but the maintenance cost is brutal. The higher ups got tired of the expenses and ordered me to get a new car. I actually picked a Mazda CX-5 and was ready to get the papers when I walked by the Outlander...... It sounds weird but it felt good to be next to it and I just had to test drive it! Needless to say, I completely forgot the Mazda and bought the Mitsubishi Outlander SEL! I brought my "Navy Mitsu" home the next day and love it! ------------------- Well, after driving the car now for over a month and adding over a couple thousand miles.....the gas is great, savings galore since it uses regular instead of 93. Pick up is a little slow but it is a 4 cylinder. The 2nd row seats are ok, mind you, my son is 6'5" and it is a little hard for him. The 3rd row is a little useless so I just keep it down. Overall, I do miss the luxury of my MB but this is worth the money because it gets you where you want to go and the gas economy is great, and the drive is smoother than you would think.

Great SUV for your Family

I have owned three Subaru's and one Honda SUV prior to owing this my Outlander. I must tell you that the critics must not know anything at all based on what they have to say about the Outlander. The Outlander is of high quality, drives and rides well, attractive and has tons of luxury like features. I will likely never buy another Subaru based on how much better the Mitsubishi Outlander is when compared to the Subaru Tribeca.

We shopped for a year before deciding on the 2016 outlander sel. When we started our search the "Mitsu", as my wife calls it, wasn't even on the list. One reason it didn't make the list was the horrible reviews from "experts". After looking for a while we narrowed it down to the Nissan Rogue and the 2016 Mazda CX-9. The main requirements we had was a three row SUV that got decent gas mileage. Well once pricing came out on the cx9 that pretty much ruled that vehicle out. We owned a 2008 cx9 and loved it and really liked the new design but the sticker price combined with the mediocre gas mileage with premium fuel was just too much. So we test drove the rogue and actually really liked the way it drove but the options on the mid level trim were slim for the price. The mid level is the only trim with 3 rows and leather isn't even an option. So we decided to try the outlander and drive it the same day. I didn't think it drove as well as the rogue but it had a few things going for it. 1. It was bigger, much bigger in the 3rd row 2. It got basically the same mpg even with the increased size. 3. It had a TON more options including leather, sub woofer, moonroof, led lights... 4. It was cheaper than the Nissan. We were sold. There are some complaints. The average mpg gauge resets after 8 or so hours so you don't actually get the average mpg per tank. The handling is ok but not great, 2008 cx9 was better. Thought it had led daytime running lights but it's just led parking lights in the front. Infotainment center is a little behind the times, still works fine but hard to navigate. Things we really like: third row is fine for kids even our 12 year old. Gas mileage we average around 28 but constantly get over 30 mpg on highway trips. The subwoofer is awesome, great stereo. The warranty was an added bonus especially when compared to the competition. The power is sufficient, I know many reviews talk about the lack of power but most parents don't actually need a 8 second 0-60 time, they prefer savings at the pump and I appreciate the fact Mitsubishi recognizes that. We leave ours in Eco mode and are more than happy with the acceleration. So the short version, if you need a 3 row suv that gets great gas mileage and has a long list of features, make sure to test drive an outlander.

The reviews are way too harsh , do they think its supposed to drive like a Porsche?, that is just not gonna happen!! This car rides and accelerates adequately on the streets and highway for a regular driver, even with a load of people I was doing 80mph without noticing because of how smooth it drives. Very comfortable even for an obese person as I am .

What you should know is that the outlander is in a segment that has almost zero competition in North America. It is the 3 row compact class. It's just there outlander and the rogue. And the rogues dont come with a V6. Reviewers compare the outlander to 2 row CUVs or 3 row mid size SUVs. Regardless, no other car epitomizes value like the outlander. V6, power lift gate, sunroof, rain sensing wipers, wiper de-icers, 18" wheels, fosgate sound, s-awc, power folding side mirrors, leather etc. All at a lower price point. I can't speak about reliability as I just bought the car but the handling and comfort is definitely at least a B+. It's not a sports car. It's a family vehicle. My kids love the car. We find a excuse to drive as a family.

I purchased this car with 4 miles on it. I noticed after my first oil change that there were specs on the car's hood. Very small at first then increasing to the size of a pea. At my next oil change I mentioned it to service who took pics and sent to corporate as the dealer cannot make warranty decisions on leather and paint. I had the regional director of service come out and inspect my vehicle who took more pics and turned into corporate. I was told these were stones and not covered under warranty. While I am not a care engineer, repair or sales person, I would think that if I was hit by something hit my car hard enough to chip my paint to the gray primer there would probably be a dent, which there is not. As the chips are increasing in numbers and size, I am anticipating my entire hood will be gray and not the beautiful cosmic blue before the loan is even paid off. So buyer beware and google mitsubitshi paint and I will assure you that one of the suggested phrases is mitsubitshi paint "chips" or "problems".

Amazing!!!!!! Oh my goodness!

I read a bunch of reviews but wanted something specific: a car that could hold an extra smaller kid when I needed it and 30 mpg on the highway. Alternatives were a minivan...nope. A ton of cash...nope. Or a Journey or a Rogue. The Journey with leather seats and AWD came out with less mileage and more $. Plus they have not been reliable and have a short warranty. The Rogue back seat was ridiculous, plus no leather with that extra seat option. -So I went back and forth on the Outlander because it got middling to poor reviews, particularly with Consumer Reports. But I realized the poor reviews came in areas I do not care about because I drive like a grandma. Acceleration slow? So what. Some lean on corners? Who cares. I stick the thing in Eco mode X 2 (AWC Eco and the Standard Eco) and get 34 on the highway with an AWD vehicle on a nice day. -It's also comfortable and quiet and my 35 mile commute in the am is incredibly pleasant. -The warranty is king, and I took it to the life of my payments (84 months...at 0.9%..Yeah, seriously) for 1200 bucks. -The safety ratings are outstanding. -It looks good with a metallic coppery brown exterior and beige leather interior. -I'm happy.

The third seat is difficult for children of any age to get into. The seat belts are impossible for 5 year olds to get on by themselves and impossible to reach from outside the car! There are no charging ports Back there and the cup holder is only on one side. The 7th seat belt is a joke. The paint is a very low quality, it has already chipped all over the hood, my car is 6 months old now but i noticed it 2 week's after purchasing. I emailed the salesman, he did not respond, went in to talk to them but they pawned me off on a manager that acted like it was normal, it's not. So disappointed! In addition to the above, now 1 years since purchase the paint on the car looks like I have owned it for 5 or more years and I don't know the point of adding these comments because NOBODY cares if they did someone would have contacted me by now to see how to resolve my issues with the paint. Why should I have to figure out where to get the money to repaint my car when it is barely 1 year old??? Why wouldn't the dealer (Firkins in Bradenton, FL) care about my comments regarding their lack of interest in looking into the paint issue??? I buy a new car every 3 or 4 years but I won't buy this one again and I definitely won't get it from Firkins!!!

First off - I have never reviewed a car on edmunds before but I want buyers to do justice to this car before coming to any conclusions based on the edmunds expert review. This is not a luxury car but gives a near luxury feel based on features provided. Safety test results are at the top most tier - IIHS top pick + also A sub 30K car that gives you forward collision warning , lane departure warning amongst other features is a no brainier. Most Japanese and German cars have this only on highest end models that are easily 40-45k plus. Mitsubishi has a best in class warranty. A practical 7 seater with excellent mileage & sufficient acceleration.

Have 500 miles on it!

If you have never driven a CVT it will take you a while to get used to it. We had a turbo charged vehicle with a 6 speed tranny before and it would really take off after the turbo lag. It takes a while to accelerate with a 4 cyl and a cvt. Other than that the car is really great. The Rockford Fosgate premium stereo system really rocks. I do wish the power lift gate was foot activated. Have not taken it on a long trip to check mileage but computer is saying around 30 mpg. Our much smaller car before would be lucky to get 23. The 3rd row seats are really only good for kids but nice to have in this size vehicle.

Impressive Ride

Looked at a lot of SUV,s Ford, GM, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Hyundai, Kia. I was replacing a Chevy Captiva that was almost out of warrenty. Never considered a Mitsubishi before but seen how long the warrenty was on them. After reading the critics reviews on the Mitsubishi Outlander I almost didnt consider it. I sure glad I took the time to go look at one in person and drive one. I was sold in a mile ! The Mazda was noisy and road ruff. Ford Escape was ok but didn't like rear seat room or the packages they offered for the price. Hyundai and Kia are only a good value if you buy the base ones. GM Trax was really nice but again was too small. Toyota Rav 4 was very unimpressive and pricing was very high for what you recieved and the warrenty was half as long as the Mitsubishi. Nissan, well what can I say, again high price, worst CVT transmission I drove, Lots of consumer complaints . If you go and drive the competition then drive the Mitsubishi and consider price and warrenty I think you will be driving one home like I did !! Update..Been over 6 months now and i feel the same as I did before. Great on gas, very quite, smooth ride. Family and friends that have drove it can't belive that this didnt cost over 30,000 dollars. The only thing I could say needs to be improved is the voice link system. although the sound system sound great, the link system is not, very slow, touch screen is slow, some phones blutooth will not work with it. I hope in the future they will offer a update with android auto.

This is a great SUV . Don't listen to the expert ratings. Drives very well and all the new upgrades are great. I got this vehicle for winter and the super All Wheel Control works very good. Remote start and leather heated seats for this price is unbelievable. I don't think there are other car brands out there that can provide such value for money. Simply love this car Santosh

I currently own a 2014 Rogue and 2013 BMW X3 Msport. Comparing the ride quality, this suv beats both vehicle. Even if its a CVT, comparing it to my Rogue, when accelaration is needed, it does not hesitate and I dont hear the engine rev so much as compared to the Rogue. The CRV and RAV4 are overated. There is nowhere that they are up to par with this vehicle. I believe the only reason why consumers out there dont even consider Mitsubishi when shopping a car is because of their bad reputation for the past 10 years but I will honestly admit that they have come a long way to improve it. I am so thankfull that I went to a Mitsubishi dealer "just to see" what they got and boy!!! I was in for the ride that instant. If you are shopping for a vehicle that fits budget and have the basic perks especially....""ride comfort and style...Then I highly recommend to check this vehicle "no kidding" they say that the exterior style is ugly? I dont think so! Iit better looking than a CRV or RAV4 and it looks bigger too! If you look it sideways, its similar to a BMW X5 although..They could have done better in the vehicles front fascia. Overall..Im a very pleased to own a 2016 SEL.

Love My New SUV

Traded in my Mitsubishi Mirage (2015) for the Outlander ES Feb 19. Fell in love with it immediately. The step up in brakes and steering alone was awesome. The Mirage brakes were horrible, the steering fair. Sure there are better brakes and steering out there, but for a big SUV it's pretty nice. Have driven a Ford Fusion (rental), it does feel similar, at least to me. The blue tooth is great in it. First Cruise control for me. Really like it. The seats are comfortable. Could maybe use an extra adjustment on the seat, but it does feel comfortable. The biggest complaint is the big headrests on the third row seats, do block the rear view a little, but they are removable, so not a huge deal.The radio stereo is the basic brand, but it's a huge step up from the Mirage's stereo. The Mirage you had to play your mp3 music at nearly full volume. The Outlander at twenty four the music is pretty loud. So far only really drove it back and forth from work, but so far I'm loving every moment. This is no where near the top vehicle on the road, but it is a value SUV. The Mirage wasn't a bad vehicle either. The biggest downside probably would be the gas mileage. From the Mirage I got around 37 MPG regularly, never less than that from fill up to fill up. Looking now at a possible 26 MPG area. I would recommend this SUV to people looking for a nice vehicle for family driving or light hauling. The towing capacity is pretty light on this vehicle. It's listed at only fifteen hundred pounds. The Continuously Variable Transmission is fine on the ES model. You can punch it and go with little effort.

This car deserves at least a high B in ratings! I bought mine back in July when they were first delivered to the public. Mercury Grey. It is packed with features that other suvs can't touch at this price......$32,545....I own a video production business and it is roomy enough for my equipment and crew. The wife loves it for the style and handling The paddle shifters are fun and it has plenty of pick up. The Leather and other equipment makes this a real joy to own...Drive one and you will buy one....

Trade in a V6-GT and got a 2016 SEL. Ride is improved, the sport mode work great, and I did not miss the V6. We own CRV, and Forester, and tested RAV4 and Escape. The winner is the Outlander. It is more than just better value. It is a very good car. The car is made in Japan, and except brake and tire, there are no service needed for the 105K drive. 2016 Outlander ride is better than the forester. The acceleration is better than CRV. It is not muddy like the RAV4. Mazda is always louder than all the above. The 2016 SEL did not have HID headlight, but still plenty bright. The Bluetooth is not the best, but it work. It did not have big sun-roof like the Outlander sport or forester, but not deal breaker. The y are selling well, so we settle one in black. Overall, a happy repeat buyer after two weeks.

Don't believe everything you read! The Mitsubishi Outlander is NOT a piece of crap! I've got 6K miles on mine and love it! I burn regular unleaded and get an avg. of 23 MPG's! I've tried a couple tanks of premium and get the same MPG's and performance! The vehicle is solid in snow traction, acceleration, quietness, steering, etc. I love the LED headlights and tail lights - you don't get that on a 2016 XLE Rav4! I did test drive a LOT of 2015 CUV's before I bought this model. I recently drove a 2016 Rav4 and did not like the bumpy ride, noisy interior, poor acceleration and LACK OF TOWING! AND the price for a 4 cylinder vs. my V6 was ALMOST the same with the same options I have!! I think Mitsubishi messed up there marketing and some of their models over the past 10 years or so but this car is NOT bad! I had a Mazda for 12 years before this and there is no comparison to that vehicle with the smooth shifting 6 speed the Outlander has and power over that Mazda that had a 200 HP V6. So.....try it out before you buy something else!

Take another look.

This is as honest as a car gets. There's no flashy advertising, no crazy hamsters driving it around, you get the picture. I bought this when we traded in our 2011 GMC Terrain. Our Terrain was loaded to the gills with options but it was becoming unreliable. We got the Outlander SEL with AWD and the safety package which comes with rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, adaptive cruise and collision mitigation. I was surprised when we were shopping to learn that this was a top safety pick, so we gave it a shot. So far it has been great in this Buffalo winter and has had no issues in the slop that populates the roadway this time of year. No heavy snow yet but I'm confident this will be fine. The rear seat fits both our car seats with ease and I don't have to have my seat all the way forward for them to be comfortable (I'm 6'4"). The passenger seat could use some more room for us tall folk but that seems to be the norm for this segment. The warranty can't be beaten since it's bumper to bumper for 60k for 5 years and it includes free roadside during that time as well. The financing options are very good also. We have average credit and were able to get 3.5% for 65 months with the option to turn the car in at 48 months with 60k miles and just walk away. (We had some negative equity on the GMC) So if you're sitting there thinking you can't afford a new car, you really can and it will be worth it to have a warranty for 60k miles. Overall you can't beat what you get for the money with this car. If you're in the market for a crossover that gets decent gas mileage, take another look at Mitsubishi. You'll be surprised what you find.

I needed a car with a third row for occasional use by young children (depending on how many kids I'm commuting with). The car needed to be not huge -- something I can comfortably drive in traffic and park in tight spots. I was happy with my venerable stick-shift Ford Focus, but it's now too small. (At first I really wanted to get the 2014 Mazda5 6-speed manual, but crash test scores made me reconsider.) After deciding that the Acura MDX was too expensive and the Dodge Journey a bit too bulky, I considered the Outlander along with the Nissan Rogue and the Kia Sorento. Here's why I picked Outlander: - Adding the 3rd row in the Rogue (family package) or 4-cyl Sorento (convenience package) adds roughly $1K to MSRP and rules out leather. Maybe it's standard on the V6 Sorento. The cloth on the Sorento is very sturdy, the Rogue and the Outlander pretty basic. All the third rows are small (and fold away), but the Rogue's was extra small with very little vertical leg room (so knees go up). The Outlander's third row is maybe slightly smaller than the Sorento's (but standard). - The warranty is better than Nissan (5 yrs > 3) and on par with Kia (slight edge to Mitsubishi on roadside assistance) - During the test drive, the Outlander delivered comparable acceleration with less CVT screaming than the Rogue. Power and handling seemed comparable to the base Sorento, but with somewhat less snap around center steering. The Sorento also offers a turbo 4-cyl but without third row seat (sigh). - It's just a good looking car. I really liked the "cosmic blue" and the "quartz brown." The Sorento has a nice "dark cherry" though. - Better standard sound system with HD radio. - If you like 4WD, it has selectable active 4WD vs the passive AWD I believe you get on the Rogue and Outlander. I'm just leaving it on "eco" until it snows or something. Here's how Mitsubishi could make me like the Outlander even more: - One-push turn signal for lane changes (see the Sorento) - Make auto on/off headlights standard (currently only with safety package or GT trim, I believe) - There's a lot of empty space under the hood. Maybe this space is used by the GT model, or by right-hand steering on Japanese versions? Maybe it could be shifted for greater front leg room. - Provide a non-CVT option (below GT trim) - It was hard to find an SEL trim with FWD. I wound up getting a 4WD I didn't really need just due to pricing and inventory. - At least with Kia and Nissan you get final assembly in USA. Mitsubishi just closed its only USA factory. It's definitely bigger than what I drove before, but the kids and I enjoy it. We were saving up for it, so I paid cash (there's a cash back incentive or zero APR, but not both -- also a nice military rebate) and still had a little left over for their college savings!

Great car, practical!

This is my first Mitsubishi. We had a Mazda5 2013 for almost 3 years but decided to sell it after bad crash rating released recently and major warranty work on the engine tappets (not a good sign). So we were looking for an SUV with third-row that's not a full size or V6, and it boils down to Mitsubishi Outlander or Nissan Rogue (with 3rd row option and run-flat tires since the third row takes over the spare tire space). We test-drove our friend's 2015 GT and was quite surprised with the car and I was glad to find many improvements was done to 2016 version. The Rogue is out of question since we would rather have spare tire than using run-flat tires. We ended up getting the cosmic blue 2WD SEL with roof rack, and exterior package. The car is primarily driven by my wife and she couldn't be happier with it and I also really enjoyed the car. I drove it to the mountain and the Bay many times, the performance is good. I'm not sure why the the reviewers from certain auto mag and review sites gave it such low mark (biased-much?). The engine power is decent, don't believe when reviewers slammed about how slow the car is getting into freeway ramps. I lived in CA and drove to the SF and the bay many times and it gets to the ramp fine even in fast paced traffic. Maybe those pro reviewers are so spoiled with testing high end cars and have snobby attitudes against more affordable car for the masses. I also used to own 2007 Acura MDX with technology package and I enjoy driving the Outlander more than the MDX to be honest. I can't say anything about the warranty yet but the 10-year 100k miles warranty should give you peace of mind. All in all, this car deserves a look, it's a great people mover, fun enough for weekend driving and it's priced great for it's class. PS: look for real world reviews in youtube and websites. This car is actually selling well in Europe and not sure why it's hardly heard in US (I would blame Mitsubishi North America marketing department for this). The plugin Hybrid version is selling like hotcakes in Europe and will come to US sometimes next year.

I needed an affordable SUV for my family of 5. I looked at all options including some large sedans and mini vans. Then I came across the Outlander. I've had the car for only about a month but I am totally impressed. It looks great, drives great, gets amazing gas mileage for a full size SUV. I am consistently getting 31-33 mpg on the highway and 29 mixed. I can get my wife and three kids in this thing and jump on the highway and go! It also doesn't require Premium gas just basic unleaded. I have the base model but I love it for what it is. A simple clean performer. The bluetooth phone connectivity works great and much better than my last 35 thousand VW. The stock wheels look very nice and fresh. It's also very quiet on the road. It's a just a real good performer for the tasks that I use it for. My model doesn't have all the bells and whistles but honestly I don't need Nav. I have my phone and it works great. I also love that I sit up high on the road. It's as high as most trucks and higher than most vans. It's got tons of cargo space and is really flexible when you're hauling people or cargo. The build quality feels good. The ride feels solid with nice balance of road feel and comfort. It has high clearance so although I haven't tested it in the snow, I am expecting decent performance. The warranty is amazing. I simply do not believe that there is a better SUV buy out there for $19,785 especially one that sits 7. The Outlander will haul people and cargo and do it with style and great gas mileage. Plus you get the added bonus that they are not a dime a dozen. In a way they are a bit like a boutique company. I read all the reviews before I bought it and many complained about the lack of power. I don't get it. It has enough power. Is it fast? Fast enough. Is it a race car? No. In drive mode with "Eco" mode enabled at can at times feel a little sluggish but it's not that bad. If you feel the need you can always drop the shifter in "sport" mode, click off the "Eco" mode and get much snappier performance. I actually like that I can turn this stuff off and on. That way I can get great mileage most of the time but get performance when I feel like it's needed. So far I am really liking the Outlander

This vehicle has rugged good looks and sensible features. Where else can you find a third row AWD wagon under 30,000? Initially my wife and I were drawn to the Subaru Forester, but after thorough review and test driving, determined that the quality of the Forester felt too small inside for our growing family and the materials not as durable as we would expect for the price. So, I continued researching all of the recommended models comparable to the Forester. Subsequently I test drove the Outlander SE AWD and the SEL AWD. A local dealer was offering a manangers special on a 2015 SE AWD at an ubeatable price. I test drove and fell in love with the outstanding practicallity of the design and relatively understated body design- more about rugged simplicity than urban bling. I took the test drive alone, with my wife trusting me to come home with a "managers special". My wife would have been perfectly satisfied with the SE, but I couldn't help taking notice of the 2016 SEL AWD on the lot. I took a test drive, and I was definitely impressed. Still functional and spacious, and the 2.4 L engine adding the power some may expect from this bigger SUV AWD wagon. I took it upon myself to go over our budget and surprise her with the 2016 Outlander SEL. I was a bit anxious, as my wife is more practical than myself and really would have lived with the winier 2.0 liter 2015 SE without complaint. For the price difference- I thought the upgrade to the SEL would be a good long term choice for the family. My wife is driving the vehicle daily and sends me messages throughout the day expressing her enjoyment the car. In my opinion, Mitsubishi is offering great AWD wagon packages for the value-minded that appreciate classic rugged good looks and AWD driving functionality. The expert reviews do not cover many of the positive attributes that make this SUV such an exceptional value, such as the alternative AWD modes- totally absent in most of the other SUV wagons. The Outlander is a unique SUV and deserves far more credit than the experts give it.

Great Improvements from the previous year model!

I owned a 7 seater Outlander 2014 before. When I did a test drive of the 2016 model, I was quite surprised to see the improvements that Mistubishi made in the 2016 model. I've noticed a considerable reduction in outside noise and vibration. They’ve made significant improvements to the performance of the vehicle as well. 2014 Outlander lacked the responsiveness you’d expect when you press the gas pedal. Mitsubishi addressed this issue and new model is much more responsive compared to the previous year models. Ride comfort is also better. Although not significant, improvements to the interior and the steering wheel are also adding to the overall improved appearance of the interior. 2016 Outlander is fun to drive. Although the the third row seats are not ideal for adults, it serves its purpose when we have to occasionally transport 7 people in a single car. I’d say there is room for more improvements. However, this is definitely a step in the right direction for Mitsubishi. Hope they keep improving the Outlander to make it even better. I feel that the SE model offers a great value for the price you pay for the vehicle.

I had done my research and test drove a few of the SUV's that I thought were worth my consideration and at first, Mitsubishi was not on my list. I've heard nothing but unkind things about the Outlander and Mitsubishi in general to even think about looking at them, but I'm glad I did. My list of vehicles were as follows: Kia Sportage, Hyundai Tucson, Mazda CX-5, Buick Encore and even the Kia Soul. As you can see, the Outlander wasn't on my list. I just happened across an article while doing my research that mentioned the Mitsubishi had made over 100 updates to the 2016 model. My first thought was, "Of course they did, they had to to try and keep relevant in the market." So that made me go ahead and look into it. The reviews I came across were very mixed, some good some bad and some in between. So the only way to tell would be to go take a test drive and see it in person. At this point I had already test drove all the other vehicles on my list. A big plus for any of these vehicles was if they offered adaptive cruise control, backup camera, lane departure warning, blind spot alert and brake assist. Only a couple of these features could be found in any one of these vehicles and some had none of them or just a back up camera. All of the vehicles on my list are worthy of purchasing, but some more than others. They each had their own pluses and minuses, but when I had calculated features, comfort, mileage and price the Outlander came out as the victor. The Outlander didn't hit all the top marks, but it hit most of them and was never at the bottom of my scorecard. I know beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but I really like the looks of the 2016 Outlander. The front grill is ok, but the rest of the vehicle to me is very well done. The Outlander as stated, did't hit the high marks on most of my list, but overall scored best. For exterior styling, I give it a 8 of 10, the interior has been upgraded, but still not going to blow you away, but it does well in my comparison test and I score it a 7 of 10. One of the places it did score high with me, was how you fold the seats down to extend the cargo space. It can't get any easier and all the seats (3rd row included) fold very flat for easy loading of whatever you need to load. The features that are available on the Outlander SEL level are great. Mitsubishi is one of very few car makers that have separated the safety tech you can buy from the sound/sunroof packages most cars bundle now. The 3 packages they offer are: Premium Package $1900 -inc: SEL , Power Glass Sunroof, Power Remote Tailgate, Power Folding Side View Mirrors, Front Windshield Wiper De-Icer, Radio: AM/FM Rockford-Fosgate Premium Sound System 710-watt, 9 speakers, FUSE Handsfree Link system w/USB port, 6.1 inch touch panel display and SiriusXM satellite radio w/3-month subscription Safety Package $1550 -inc: SEL , Adaptive Cruise Control, Power Folding Side View Mirrors, Front Windshield Wiper De-Icer, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Mitigation, Auto Headlamp Control, Rain Sensing Wipers Touring Package $5,250 -inc: SEL , Adaptive Cruise Control, Power Glass Sunroof, Power Remote Tailgate, Power Folding Side View Mirrors, Front Windshield Wiper De-Icer, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Mitigation, Radio: AM/FM Rockford-Fosgate Premium Sound System 710-watt, 9 speakers, FUSE Handsfree Link system w/USB port, 6.1 inch touch panel display and SiriusXM satellite radio w/3-month subscription, MMCS Navigation System, 2 annual Mapcare updates (replaces audio head unit), Auto Headlamp Control, Rain Sensing Wipers I really only wanted the safety package, I use my phone for GPS and Music and I don't care for a sunroof, but of course since these cars are just rolling out, they didn't have one with only the safety package. So I got the fully loaded Touring Package, but I negotiated the $5,200 package down to $2,500. I will admit I do like the hands free tailgate feature that I wouldn't of had had I only bought the safety package. The Outlander drives well for its size. It won't win any races, but it moves along just fine. The 4 cylinder is pretty smooth considering it has a CVT (not a huge fan of them...yet) and it does have a "Sport" setting which holds the gears to a higher RPM, but I don't use it much. I've just turned the 1000 mile mark (I've owned it for two weeks) and I'm averaging about 27/28 mpg, not too bad for this size of vehicle. The cabin is quiet enough, I'd give it a 7 of 10 and the sound system once set up is a 8 of 10. The adaptive cruise control is excellent, 10 of 10 and the other tech all works well too. I really enjoy the comfort of the drivers seat although it lacks a lumbar support setting. Also, for a vehicle in this price range, I'd expect the passenger side seat to also be electric but it's not. Another thing that I would of added was heated and cooled seats, but you can only get heated.

i'm in love with this car1

This is my second car from Mitsubishi. My first was the 2014 Mirage. This is an upgrade leap frog years from what i had. the vehicle picks up speed from a standstill like a jag, leaving other vehicles in it's dust. The ride is smooth, handles well, downshifts like a race car, sound system is boss, beautiful 18 alloy rims, no need to get after market's there. The look of the car is sexy, the grill reminds me of something from the Transformers. Get this car! you can't go wrong!
