2006 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Two months ago I rated my newly purchased Outlander. I still feel that the car is very smooth. It rides very quiet and is very comfortable. I especially like the transmission, allowing to shift up and down on the go. The sound system is great. I found that the rear wiper to be almost useless. It does not clean a large enough surface to allow for a clear vue, The rear wiper is a pain to change. The plastic on which mudguards are mounted is beginning to deteriorate. Gas mileage is disappointing from a 4 cyl. car. I find the tires 215/55/17 to be oversize and the 94V rating in unnecessary for this car with a top speed of 120 mph. The windows and sunroof freeze when cold.


Best Features

Sound system AWD variable Transmission Looks and feels Leather seats Sunroof Quietness Smoothness


Worst Features

Better fuel economy Better plastic, more rigid tires that fit the characteristics of the car. I would think 215/60/16 would be very appropriate. Plastic is very cheap.

2006 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV LS 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this outlander in October and it has been a perfect fit since. I was looking for a car like suv and found outlander fitting in utility and price. It has fit into our lifestyle as a weekend and vacation get away mobile. It's perfect as a secondary car especially when you want to give your daily commute car a break. The money you'll save could be used on enjoying your destination. Our outlander is adequately powered for getting here to there. All the necessary comforts for the drive are present including a more than comfortable and roomy passenger space. Four medium sized people will seat very easily. Five is do-able for shorter trips. Back seats recline, but will sacrifice cargo.


Best Features

Roof rails Angle of the dash. Brilliantly provide more interior space in front. Leg room for all passengers. Automanual shift option. Great for that extra power on hills. All wheel drive. Perfect for the snow on lake Tahoe trips. Adequate cargo space. Back seats fold down for more space.


Worst Features

Hollow build quality of body exterior. Static shock when exiting vehicle. Shocks my fiancée every time. Minor blind spots in front winshield which sometimes gets in the way of seeing left and right at intersections. Visors don't completely block sun when used for side windows.

Review

Ok, I just bought this used 2006 Outlander. Let me say that I am very impressed with how smooth the car rides. The seats (front, I haven't been in the back yet) are very comfortable. Sound system is great. The viewing position is perfect for my height (5'9").


Best Features

Sounds system, sun roof, comfort, quietness, and driving position.


Worst Features

Smaller size tires.

2006 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV SE 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


Review

It still amazes me that the resale value of these is so far below the CRV and the Rav4. Makes picking up one lightly used a no-brainer. The SE model exterior design blows away the rivals. Great looking vehicle (SE/LTD - LS OK) and you won't see many (if any) on the road. The engine has plenty of power even when entering/passing on the highway. The Infiniti sound system is great. Plenty of room on the inside, slightly less cargo space than the CRV & Rav4, but not by much. Expected to run forever (150 - 200K easy) with little maintenance.


Best Features

Exterior design and appearance of SE & LTD models. Won't see any others on the road. Chrome wheels, roof rails, slight ground effects, clear taillight covers, Infinity sound system, spacious interior, comfortable seating, padded console. Build quality.


Worst Features

Already redesigned in '07 (with bigger engine, more room etc.). I preferred the '06 feature/option set to the larger, less efficient '07+.

Review

This is an after the fact review, as I just traded this one in. This car did nothing well, but nothing bad. It was just sort of there and didn't leave a bad taste. It's comfortable (the seats are very firm), got decent mileage, and didn't require a lot of non-routine maint; just oil changes, tires, brakes, and an AC recharge (common to this model). It's a little short on power, but proved to be reliable. The interior wore well.


Best Features

The Infiniti stereo rivaled anything aftermarket you could put in. Firm seats. The AWD system impressed.


Worst Features

The sport cloth was hard to keep clean, it showed everything. Needed a power boost.
