2005 Mitsubishi Outlander LS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this truck when my cute old Mitsubishi Mirage coupe got totalled in an accident in 2005. I was a Mitsubishi fan due to the fact that I never had a single issue with my 1997 Mirage for eight years, and this vehicle has reinforced my liking of Mitsubishi. My wife drives a Honda-CRV, and the Outlander definitely feels roomier in comparison when I drive (I am 6 feet tall). Add to that the 5 year/60000 mile warranty and an unbelievable price when I bought it (about $6,000 below sticker) and I was sold immediately.
I like how the Outlander has lots of storage areas inside, a roomy interior, and a low price compared to CR-V or RAV4..
ABS should be available for the LS model (I believe this is available with the newer ones), and it should get better fuel economy (it is lower than advertised, I get about 20/25 compared to 22/27 with the CRV), but even otherwise, this is a great car for the money!
