2005 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV LS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I am currently a little unhappy with the vehicle and the service. I am having an issue with an odor when the air conditioning is on. The dealer said it is condensation that is becoming moldy. They did not offer much help except to change the cabin filter, for a fee. It seems like this is a warranty issue. I haven't had the vehicle for a year, why would the air conditioning be leaking and getting moldy? The odor is bad, especially on rainy days. I wish I knew if others had this problem. I am a little frustrated, it's gross! That's my big complaint.


Best Features

I like that I sit up higher than in my Galant. It has a roomy and has a comfortable ride. The stereo has a great sound.


Worst Features

More colors to choose from, interior and exterior. To get the exterior color I wanted I had to get black interior. That was a mistake, very hard to keep clean! It needs to get better gas mileageI currently only get 21 mpg, which is disappointing for a vehicle with a 4-cylinder engine,

Review

The 2005 Mitsubishi Outlander is a great vehicle. It stands out in a crowd as no one around here thinks to buy one of these. We get LOTS of compliments on it. The XLS package is the only way to go and the dealer sold it to us for way below sticker.


Best Features

The interior and exterior designs. This vehicle was designed and built 100% in Japan so we expect it to last.


Worst Features

Give is a more powerful engine.

Review

I looked at every single small SUV on the market in the $18,000 to $28,000 range. I purchased the Outlander XLS FWD, Phoenix Red and the more I drive it the more I really like it. It has more than enough power, especially when using the sportronic. I think the steering is quite good, the brakes are excellent and the fit and finish both inside are quite good. I would recommend it to anybody who needs a small space vehicle.


Best Features

SportTronic transmission, power, stereo, and overall excellent fit and finish. It feels like a vehicle that will last 10 years.


Worst Features

Wide angle mirrors for the driver's side like what is on the passenger's side, make more saftey features standard (which is remedied on the 2006 model), and give it standard floor mats - the carpet looks thin

Review

We take lots of long road trips. The Mitsubishi Outlander is great on gas. I love driving it, but I absolutely hate riding in the back seat.


Best Features

I love the way it handles.


Worst Features

Improve the backseats.
