2003 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We went in to look at the Galant and
found the basic version of this vehicle
to be of similar price. We test drove it
and fell in love. It is perfect for us -
small but with the AWD we really need in
our climate. We opted for the totally
loaded version and are very pleased.


Best Features

The safety features, side airbags, etc. We were involved in a three car collison- we were rearended; the car that hit us was nearly totaled - our Outlander only sustained about $900 damage- just cosmetic damage.


Worst Features

Location of the mirror adjustments and fog light button are a little hard to maneuver while driving.

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS AWD 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

We needed to replace our '98
Pathfinder. My wife won't drive a wagon
or mini van. So, the usual "cute ute"
suspects were Rav4,CRV & Forester. Did
not consider Outlander due to power
issues. Tried to buy the Toyota, but
couldn't get the right deal. On the
way to a 2nd Toyota dealer, we decided
to stop and check out the Mitsubishi.
She loved the style, it drove great,
and power, while more would be nice,
isn't that bad. Bottom line is we got
a lot more for our money with the
Outlander. Do not overlook it in your
search for the right "cute ute".


Best Features

Terrific interior, super seats, great ergonomics. Generous rear seat room with ample storage. Impressive handling. Agressive & distinctive exterior styling. Infinity audio is mint. Value for the $$.


Worst Features

20-25 more horsepower would be nice. Add rear wheel disc brakes. Cross bars on roof rack.

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander LS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Put 1000 miles on car and it drives
like a dream. Get 29 MPG overall
driving. Thats 75 MPH thru the mts.
Who said this car cant climb? It sure
can, and no problem either. This car
is very satisfying so far. I love it.

To bad Mark Mitsubishi is giving
Mitsubishi such a black eye thru
underhanded delings and false
advertising. Oh well, there must be
some good dealers out there.


Best Features

Height Adjustable drivers seat, cruise control, quiet smooth ride. Easy to use radio and CD player.


Worst Features

Use a heavier gauge sheet metal on the car. Other than that, its great.

Review

I Moved from Loaded 2000 Honda Accord
to this one. Infact I liked this one
much better. Yes, there are few short
comings, but again not for this money.
I saw, Edmunds road tests and some
other guys reviews, saying power is
weak and noise is more, but it better
than 150HP Honda Accord, 4WD may be
little slow, not this one and engine is
very smooth. I compared and Drove CRV
and this, I felt this is more comfy,
easy to handle. Just drive and see
you'll love it.


Best Features

Smooth engine, handling, plenty torque to start with


Worst Features

Fuel Economy, and then Little more power help stop some critics.
