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


Review

I've always had minivans before this and I was reluctant to go to an SUV because I enjoyed the extra backseat. However, after test driving the Outlander with my family of five we decited to buy. My three kids fit comfortably in the backseat (with two booster seats) The height is simliar to a van and the trunk is a lot roomier.


Favorite Features

Our favorite feature is the sunroof.


Suggested Improvements

It needs more compartments inside to put things.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

I'm 6'4", and the Outlander is very easy to get in and out of and very comfortable. Also, I like the storage/rear seat design.


Suggested Improvements

The Outlander should have a little more power, more useful roof rails, and better highway gas mileage.

Review

Our Outlander saved me, my daughter's and her friend's lives! Tonight we were in a terrible car accident where I went into a ditch and my truck flipped over three times! We all had our seatbelts on, the back windows shattered OUT the car, the sides got bangged up, but the doors never caved in, the roof and hood were badly smashed. When people passed the vehicle, they were horrified...and could not believe we were alive! I am going to buy another...as I feel it truly saved us....I give it a five star safety rating...thanks Mitsubishi!


Favorite Features

The safety features.


Suggested Improvements

It should get better gas mileage, have better tires, and have more "pick-up."

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


Review

The only thing we'd change about the Mitsubishi Outback is the back seats should completely flatten. If they made this a hybrid version of it I'd by it in a minute.


Favorite Features

We love the Pacific Blue color. You hardly ever see it on the road, everyone loves it. The height is excellent.


Suggested Improvements

Flatten the back seats when they fold down.

Review

I've had my 2003 Outlander for 3.5 years now, and have had zero problems with it. It still rides, looks, and feels brand-new. It's true that I don't put a lot of miles on my vehicles, but it's been totally reliable in every way. I am planning on upgrading to the new 2007 version as soon as it comes out.


Favorite Features

I love the ride and the utility.


Suggested Improvements

I am looking forward to the tumble-down seats of the 2007 model.
