2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
I'm from the Philippines, where the xls is known as the "gls sport". It's a nice cuv, with good suspension. The roads here are not too great, but after a long drive, I don't feel beaten up. Also looks good, & people turn whenever I pass by. The car's sound system is also good, and I don't have to buy anything extra just to enjoy my cd's. A lot of new friends are impressed by the exterior & interior looks of this car. It was a toss-up between this and the forester, and i have not regretted my decision in choosing over this one. the fuel consumption is ok, esp on long drives.
the rockford fosgate sound system, the dashboard, the paddle shifts; and the way the back door opens.
gas mileage - i wish it could be more than 17 mpg/city. the Philippine market outlander doesn't have the 30 GB HDD - wish they can incorporate it here. how about h.i.d. for both high & low beams?
