2008 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)
Only owned the car for over a week. For the price of a fully loaded 4WD SUV, it beats all the competitors in the same market segment (mainly RAV4, CR-V and Ford Edge). The interior is not excessively rich, but it is comparable to the competitors. The technology features are hands down the best out of the competitors as my XLS model is equiped with touch screen harddrive based navigation, bluetooth, HID headlights, full function trip computer.
Bluetooth. Fold down tailgate. Third row seats (it is tight in size, but it is there).
Memory seat settings. Auto rain sensing wiper. Auto headlights. (These are things that will make the outlander in the BMW X3 segment instead of the RAV4 segment.)
