2008 Mitsubishi Outlander SE 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)
I bought my Outlander about 6 months ago, after months of researching and test driving several small SUVs including Toyata Rav4, Honda CR-V, Chevy Equinox, and the Saturn Vue just to name a few. I am not disappointed. Although the 4 cylinder lacks initial get up and go power, once its going the Outlander provides a very smooth, sporty, fun drive. Having driven a Landrover before, I am loving the fuel economy! I'm averaging about 24 mph in the city, on a recent 8 hour trip I averaged about 32 mpg/hwy. I would have paid thousands more for the options I have, the SE model comes loaded with a lot of unique amenities the competition just did not offer. Overall what a great buy!
Keyless entry, fuel economy, overall space, Rockford Fosgate sound system, Info center, lots of storage/cup holders
Interior plastics and carpeting could be improved, a little on the cheap side, heated side mirrors, back up signal, more sound proofing around sun roof when cover is slid back you get alot of wind noise.
