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


Review

I just bought my 2006 Outlander after almost eight years driving a Ford SHO. I wanted a truck, but we picked the Outlander as a compromise. After years of driving a very powerful, low profile car, the Outlander took a lot of getting used to. However, once I was comfortable I love it. I hate super plush cars, so this is a great compromise between a car and a truck - and honestly, with Mitsubishi's road rally experience, I expect to be able to get out of my driveway many mornings without snowblowing. Once I get my first scratch I might go down some dirt roads. If you're looking for something with quick acceleration, this is not the car. But it does cruise quite nicely.


Best Features

Size - perfect for a petite woman. Not too big and not too small.


Worst Features

Get the sunroof.

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


Review

When I was looking through possible vehicles to purchase upon a move to snowy Minnesota, I met with a dealership that found the Outlander would match my needs. While I wasn't a big fan of the outer appearance, it was nice to look at a car that wasn't exactly the same as all the other small SUVs. I ended up buying the car after checking out some of it's competitors (i.e. CRV, VUE, RAV4) and have found my Outlander to be a terrific buy. I think it is very comfortable, with a simple, clean interior. I would recommend this car to someone looking for a smaller AWD vehicle.


Best Features

The leather upholstery is quite nice, and the sound system is great!


Worst Features

More power (which happened with the new models) and power seats.

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


Review

My wife bought this car back in December of 2005. We have over 30,000 miles on it now and have had any problems whatsoever. It has NEVER been to the dealer, I do all of the maintenance myself and the car is very easy to work on for the home mechanic. Good gas mileage for its class. All around a good deal for someone that is wanting a compact, SUV.


Best Features

Styling is nice. Seats are comfortable, good stereo system. Tinted windows are also nice. Very easy to fold down the rear seats.


Worst Features

GET RID OF THE TIMING BELT! (This is 2006) Also the 4G69 MIVEC has to have the valves adjusted. (Again this is 2006) It would also benefit from a larger engine BUT I think they fixed this with the new ones.

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


Review

I bought a 2006 Certified Used Outlander AWD. I got the 100,000 mile powertrain and 5 yr / 60,000 mile bumper to bumper, no deductible warranties. What other car company has a warranty like that! ZERO.. I had a 1998 Ford Explorer with 50,000 miles prior to the Outlander. I put over $3,000 in repairs into it in the last two years. I was looking for a quality vehicle, I found that in the Outlander. I am sold on Mitsubishi. The Outlander is a great crossover vehicle, it is fun to drive and handles great. I live in Western PA and the winters are nasty. I feel 100% safer in the Outlander than I ever did in the Explorer and the AWD hardly has to kick in.


Best Features

The great style, AWD, and comfortable seats. It is the only vehicle that I really enjoy driving.


Worst Features

The gas mileage is around 17 mpg with the AWD. I live in the mountains so anything that I buy usually doesn't come close to that they say. It's better than the 10 mpg that I used to get with the Explorer.

Review

I traded in my Mitsubishi Endeavor for the Outlander. I love the Outlander's aggressive styling. The handling of this car is amazing as well. I'd recommend this SUV to anyone.


Best Features

The analog clock, 6 disc CD changer, MIVEC engine, and styling.


Worst Features

More power would be nice in any vehicle!
