I bought this car in 2005, needed a larger car for our new baby. It has been such a great buy! It is super reliable, nothing has ever broken down on it and it runs like a champ. It has almost 90,000 miles on it now and is still running as great as the day I bought it. It is awesome in the snow, when we had a huge storm here 2 years ago, I was passing up every other SUV and truck left and right as they all got stuck or slid down a the hill. I would recommend this car to anyone, it has been great for us!

I really liked my 2003 outlander when I bought in in 2004, but soon after that I found it had many problems. Every summer water fills inside my air conditioner and causes it to short out causing a new blower motor to be replaced. This wasn't all covered by warranty and they could never figure out why it would do this. Also my entire suspension has been changed and only a year later it's already squeaking. Also our temp dial doesn't rotate freely anymore, the cable designed badly and has been replaced once already. There are also numerous issues with this model and Mitsubishi won't do recalls on. Overall I would not purchase another one!

The Mitsubishi Outlander is everything that I was looking for. It is roomy, comfortable, quick and responsive, high off the ground, and it has a very thoughtful interior design. Its gas mileage is a little higher than I expected, about 25 mpg on the highway.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a great mid-size SUV with lots of room inside. It is very comfortable and has a very nice radio system. The bass sounds very good for an SUV. It drives very well in the snow with its AWD. This is a very reliable vehicle when it comes to bad weather. Also, it drives very smoothly. It is not not bumpy. It's easy to control even for younger adults. Its not too big and not to small. The Sports-tronic tranmission is great too. It feels like you're driving a manual transmission when you get bored with the automatic.

We have really enjoyed this vehichle. It drives nicely and we have had no problems or concerns with it. It is fun to drive and roomy inside. However we are told it does not hold its resale value. we were also wondering why they can not be purchased in Indiana.
