2005 Mitsubishi Outlander LS Fwd 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
LS model, FWD, automatic.
I purchased this car when it was 2 years old and had 26K miles on it. Now it's 7 years old and has 82K miles. I have had only one problem - with the steering column - that was taken care of through 5y/60k miles warranty. I do regular maintenance according to the manual.
While the LS model has a very spartan interior, it handles well. I replaced its very standard radio/CD player with an all-in-one player.
It's perfect for a small family of 2-3 people or a couple with dogs. Not enough pwr with 4 adults.
Mine has gas mileage of 22 mpg in the city and 26 mpg hwy.
I am very happy with it and will drive it to its end, hopefully many years and many miles away.
